The Beatles in Stereo Vinyl Box Set

The Beatles / Stereo Vinyl Remasters box set

The Beatles Stereo Vinyl Remasters box is limited to 50,000 copies worldwide and comes with an exclusive 252-page 12″x12″ hard back book

It looked like the Magical Mystery Tour Blu-ray box set would be our fill of Beatles reissues for late 2012, but the exciting news is that three years on from the 2009 release of the highly acclaimed remastered CDs, Apple/EMI have today finally announced that the Stereo VINYL remasters will be released on 12 November 2012 (13 Nov in the US).

All records will be pressed on 180-gram, audiophile quality vinyl with replicated artwork, and the 14 albums return to their original glory with details including the poster in The White Album, the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band’s cut-outs, and special inner bags for some of the titles.

Each album will be available individually, but also available will be a lavish boxed edition which is limited to 50,000 copies worldwide. This box set will contain a massive 252-page hardbound book, unavailable elsewhere.

    I just pre-order my Box Set today on Amazon USA site. Can’t Wait!

  2. Alan Fenwick says:

    Fabulous set, the Amazon UK price seems a tad ambitious, I think it will come down, but meanwhile What Records have if for £275 on pre-order. You have to put a £25 deposit down, but I think this is a much more realistic price.

  3. Paul Sinclair says:

    Yes Amazon will definitely come down. I’ve put an amazon pre-order in!

  4. richard says:

    Should be closer to £200 for me.What is new musically on the rarities discs? My other concern is that a 50,000 limited edition runis not limited enough. I look forward to picking one up on discogs or ebay next year when they realize they can’t sell them all!

  5. Kiwwy says:

    Regarding Help! & Rubber Soul:
    Are there any major differences in the remixes, compared to the original versions?

    Would it be worthwile to seek out both versions of those two albums?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Just to be clear, the versions of Rubber Soul and Help! used in this new vinyl set (the George Martin 1986 remixes) are the versions used on the original 1987 CDs AND the versions used on the 2009 stereo remastered CDs.

      The ONLY place to get the original stereo versions officially on CD is (bizarrely enough) in The Beatles Mono box set. The original stereo mixes follow straight after the mono mixes on the respective CDs.

  6. Nathan G. says:

    This looks so cool!!! I wonder if they’re going to release any of these in mono?!?! I prefer the sound of the Mono mixes better, so I dont know if I should hold off on this set, if a Mono one is going to come out soon after. Decisions decisions!!!!

  12. Ron says:

    I never had the intention to buy it as I already have the two 2009 box sets and the late 80′s box set, until I entered a shop today and saw that they had a special offer, just today, for € 333 (£ 267) which I could not resist. I am so weak!

  14. richard says:

    So as I suspected and mentioned above, this has ended up not on amazon, but on popmarket for closer to 3200, £239 actually. Should I wait a bit longer or is this a great boxset and just buy it?

    I’m waiting for a Let It Be box set with various mixes of the album, outtakes and a reprint of the book in the original UK box.

  17. Kitkat says:

    It still amazes that Rainbo was chosen to press these in the US instead of someone like RTI. Pretty shoddy.
