Deal alert / Beatles in Mono CD box set


Amazing price on Amazon Germany right now for The Beatles in Mono CD box set…

This contains all 10 original mono albums (Please Please Me, With The Beatles, A Hard Day’s Night, Beatles For Sale, Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album) all packaged in amazing high-quality Japanese-style vinyl replicas. In fact these were made in Japan. Help! and Rubber Soul also include the 1965 stereo mixes (the 1987 George Martin remixes were used for the official 2009 remasters, so this is the only place to get the originals).

The mono versions of the albums are different mixes altogether, not the same mixes as stereo, but in mono. There is a fascinating resource here, which goes into loads of detail about the different recording and mixing sessions.

At the time of writing (1.30pm GMT 20/2/16) this AMAZING box is only £74 (€95) right now!

  5. John Blutarski says:

    Too late again I’m not reading this site enough!
    And now it can’t even be bought anymore on from directly…

  6. Steve says:

    Just had another look at the Amazon Germany website. The good news is that it’s available to order again at €95 although it won’t be back in stock till 2nd March.

    Paul – just so I have this correct :)

    Are you saying that all (legit) copies of this mono box set contain Japanese discs complete with OBI strips etc ?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      No, what I am saying is that all the mono boxes are made in Japan. None of the individual mono CDs have OBI-strips because they have never been available separately. If you buy a mono box in Japan you do get ONE obi-strip outside the actual box and probably an extra booklet with japanese text, but the actual CDs and packaging are identical everywhere. The mono box, if bought in Japan doesn’t have individual obi strips for each album (unlike, say, the Japanese stereo mini-LP CDs).

      I’m pretty sure this is accurate, but if anyone else knows different, feel free to chip in :)

    They disappeared from all european Amazon locales, they are available only from third parties. Is it possible that they permanently gone? If they were really limited…

  9. JWL says:

    I happened to check this by chance last night and so for once napped a deal. Amazon Germany has also the mono vinyl set for a good price since a week now (260 Euro)… would be nice to see a great stereo vinyl deal in Europe, the US seems to regularly get nice bargains on this one.

  10. tom says:

    Too late for the US. Sadface.

  11. Geoff says:

    Still waiting for a decent price on the Stereo set.

  12. Bob says:

    I actually bought this box set through a third party seller on Amazon a couple if months ago for £61 and it was genuine, not a fake.

  13. Tim says:

    I’m pretty new to these alerts, but when I tried to buy in said it couldn’t ship to the UK. Is there a way around this?

  14. Marc says:

    But are we sure these are not the counterfeit knock offs? If it were for sale in HMV I’d have no hesitation buying it. Just be wary……

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      The deal was sales from Amazon Germany direct. So therefore they will be genuine. It’s a different matter with third party sellers, you need to be more wary in that situation.

      • Greg says:

        My friend Andrew was stung with 3rd party sellers selling knock offs! He bought 3 from 3 different sellers and then had some trouble getting refunds so he ended up buying direct from Amazon.

        We now refer to the whole incident as Monogate!

  15. Bobo says:

    damn, too late here as well. I should live with this website open all day long! Fact is that Paul resides in London whilst I live in Belgium making it one hour later overhere. Nevermind I have both stereo and mono UK boxes for a while now and they just gather dust anyway

    • Richie says:

      @bobo you will always receive these alerts at the same time as anyone else no matter where you/they live on planet earth.

  16. John says:

    @england Click on new/used Amazon price is still the the same but on back order.

  17. england says:

    … BACK UP TO eur 182.30
    (I have to be quicker!!)

  18. John says:

    Thanks Paul!! Credit card hit but it will sit nicely with the vinyl mono set. Great price!

  19. Luc Piens says:

    Thanx, just ordered.

  20. Ian Street says:

    great call thanks!! Just ordered.
    Paul, did you say the discs are exactly the same as the Japanese releases?
