    The mono reissue of Sgt. Pepper has been on my list of albums to buy for a while, but I noticed that it had been out of stock on Amazon for a while. I checked The Beatles website and could not find that item in the store. In fact, the only Sgt. Pepper LP I could find was the anniversary remix. I could find both mixes on LP for all the other albums, so it appears that the mono Sgt. Pepper is out of print. Can anyone confirm or deny?

    It seems like all the mono LPs are dropping out of print. Amazon only shows Revolver, Rubber Soul, the White Album and Mono Masters as currently available (direct from Amazon). Similar selection at other online retailers.

    Does anyone know if they're going to be repressed?

    They’re not even listed on the Beatles store anymore, US or UK stores. A couple of stray mono albums are, BFS, White, but most of them not.

    The mono LP's have been dropping out of circulation for a few months now. When I finally snagged my copy of Pepper from Crate & Barrel of all places, it was pretty much the only place I could buy it that wasn't a third party seller. No word on a repress.

    Hopefully the Daghastnini Company who’ve been issuing the stereos in the UK as partworks with a magazine (or leaflet) will do the Monos next? They’ve just finished the stereos this past week.

    I saw this happening several months ago, and purchased the four titles I was missing. Sgt Pepper was out of stock at the big three audiophile online retailers, but I had purchased that early on. When I saw it briefly reappear at Acoustic Sounds right before the50th came out, I grabbed a back up.
    I’d say if you don’t have it, splurge and get the still available box set. Mono Peppers will eventually rise to the point where it will be more than worth it.

    That’s disappointing. Hopefully I can find a copy somewhere before prices skyrocket.

    No Chance ! Mono is seen as a very limited market. Will be surprised if Universal repress these yet alone let De Agostini get them. Just not the mainstream market to interest a collectors magazine.

    These mono lps were release back in Sept/2014? There was plenty of time to purchase these.

    Those who didn't purchase any of these mono lp's, I guess you snooze and you lose...

    I agree with the earlier post, the box set version is still available.. grab it while it is still in stock.

    It seems the 2017 mix is the definitive version at this point

    It's the one Apple/Universal want you to buy at this point.

    In the EU they were priced sky-high like €39 for a single LP and up to €59 for 2-LP sets.

    I was lucky getting the mono Sgt. Pepper a year ago.
    Still I want Please Please Me and the White Album in mono. I'm scared this'll be very rare in less than a year now.

    I don’t know about very rare, but very expensive for sure

    Just grab the box. It's rare when I say this about an expensive box set, but that one is worth it.

    They went up after around a year, but not until then in the UK. On release date and for months afterwards all single LPs £24.99, MMT and BFS £29.99 (due to the packaging), White was £39.99. Can’t recall Mono Masters price as it’s not on my HMV store receipt, I didn’t buy it.
