The Beatles

There's this new group out that put out a bunch of stuff today apparently. Has anybody heard of them? They are supposed to be quite good.
If I died, he'd hear about it, eventually.

Yeah Yeah Yeah, got the stereo box set yesterday. I'd forgotten how cheesy the stereo mix was on those early releases! It's pleasantly nostalgic for me over speakers since that's how I usually listened to the Beatles as a teenager on our new-fangled RCA stereo, but I'm actually narrowing the stereo field for the first few albums to create my own remix for listening with headphones, since the exaggerated separation is pretty distracting in binaural mode. If you're mainly interested in the earlier albums and plan to listen mostly through headphones or earbuds, you might want to consider the mono set.

The remastering is wonderful, however. The only Beatles CD I owned before this was the 1987 release of Please Please Me, and the sound is much clearer on the new reissue. The packaging and documentation is delightful as well.
I don't know nothing except change will come

Got my Abbey Road remaster yesterday. Still expecting the mono boxset in the mail (pre-ordered two months ago from amazon).
