The Beatles were by some distance the most influential band of all, so it's great to get their work properly remastered (read the extensive interview with the team at Abbey Road in Record Collector - these guys were painstaking) and get closer to what they were hearing in the studio at the time. All the ingredients are much clearer now - McCartney's amazing bass parts, Starr's once much under-rated drumming, Lennon and Harrison on guitar showing huge imagination and variation, the lead and harmony vocals, use of other instruments (a lot was owed to George Martin's arrangement skills), recording techniques... the list goes on, and the sum of the parts is incredibly creative, varied and (mostly - there are some duds) superb music. The Beatles get more interesting as they develop as writers, musicians and recording artists, and it is fascinating to track that growth through the albums (which means I play the very early ones less than say, Rubber Soul and after). If you're into the technical details and can find a copy of Mark Lewisholm's excellent book chronicling the Beatles's recording sessions and have it to refer to as you listen, then even better. It's all beautifully packaged (unlike the bootleg versions - believe it) with informative historical and technical notes, and all together a great package, worthy of a great band.
this is the ultimate beatles collection every album they ever released plus all the stuff that was collated after they broke up two cds of those songs alone.
the dvd with all the interviews and comments about how the songs came about were fantastic to watch and i am sure that i will get many many hours of enjoyment out of this compilation....
sounds fantastic totally the one to buy its expensive of course, what would you expect for a famous bands life work not even two modern day concert tickets at a hundred pounds....
Having listened to all the Beatles songs over the years on 78's, LP's, Cassettes, and CD's and have always adored their music. I was delighted to find this remastered Box Set of all their work, which will take pride of place in my music collection.
Just love the Beatles. /The best music ever. Reminds me of my tenage years. I alwasy dance when I hear them. Bought this box set because I could not get any downloads of the original Beatles on covers. /The originals are the best.
Nothing to say except truly amazing remastered genius from the greatest band of all time !
The Beatles were away ahead of their time and every track on this box proves this.
very cheap price compared to made in uk box set.was suprised that the quality was as good as uk version at fraction of price.[i have an arcam cd 192 so would be able to hear difference.]
I have wanted this collection of The Beatles since it first came out but alas I could not afford it.
It is top notch listening for Beatle Fans or non Beatle Fans.
If you get the chance to purchase, don't hesistate. It is a must have for any music library.
All The Beatles songs in one box. I'm not a Beatles fan, but I think I may Become one. Who can you compare in the pop charts today. Ke1.
