The 1964 long player contains nine tracks from the UK’s With The Beatles (omitting five) and adds I Wanna Hold Your Hand, its US B-side This Boy, and I Saw Her Standing There (from Please Please Me). This new reissue has the full album in mono, followed straight after by the album in stereo.
Exact mixes used for each song on this reissue is unconfirmed, although we do know that Apple will be replacing any tracks that were originally in duophonic or ‘fake’ stereo with the global 2009 remasters, as well as tracks that had the sound changed significantly by added reverb. Unique mixes or edits are thought to be maintained, however.
Please note: The photos of Meet The Beatles! presented here are actually of an early pre-production edition. There are a couple of imperfections that will not be apparent on the finished product including a slight crease on the front cover (above Ringo) and a very small ‘dink’ on the very top right corner of the card sleeve. CD discs were not available to photograph.
