    I also have this set. Never played the singles too often till I read a post on another thread praising the sound quality. Started playing them...AWESOME sound.

    The ones I have are great but I think there was a problem with mixes on at least one of the set where a stereo fold down was used instead of the original mono mixes (Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine).

    Speaking of which, where might the red and/or yellow clues factor in?

    Guessing of course, but they will probably tie the packaging to the "1" theme. They could have called the video collection anything but chose to go with the 1 branding, so wouldn't be surprised if they do the same here

    I was disappointed they used them again for the CD singles. Some poor photo choices and plain back covers. For a group that was photographed so much they could do so much better.

    When I got the Beatles' collections of singles and EPs on CD back in the 1990s, I put the discs in six-disc jewel cases and made custom cover art using pictures from an Anthology poster that I bought cheap from a record store.

    Am I in a minority that if these are all remixes I’d be more inclined to buy?

    Solution: put out 2 singles boxes. 1 with original mixes, 1 with revised mixes.
    Everyone is happy, and some of us will end up buying both, ha...

    If it’s just a single box, there is a high chance I will pass, if the price is right? Maybe. But all the singles completely digitally remixed, IM IN, DAY 1
     
  10. No, you’re not. I’d buy them if they are at either end of the scale—AAA or remixes. However, if they are taken from the 2009 digital files, I’ll pass because the set will not offer anything new to me except for the packaging.

    We should get over it. Mark Lewisohn and others who actually heard it say it's garbage. Let's trust 'em.
     
  12. This will NOT be marketed under the “1” branding because it is a different set of tracks. There would be consumer confusion.

    Pulled out my boxed set of singles from '76 or later. Amazed how many used original stampers (1N in the case of "AHDN") with many sporting KT in the deadwax, well into the VAT era).

    Honestly, even if these were AAA I’m not sure that would be enough to entice me. Would I be tempted? Oh yeah. But I’d still prefer originals. The only really hard to find/expensive one is Love Me Do, and I already paid a small fortune for a mint copy as a teenager so I’m set on that front. I don’t even have that many of the original U.K. singles but I think I could fill out the rest of the collection for relatively little. I dunno. I’m not the market for this.

    Imagine this, packaging. Picture sleeve on one side and original Parlophone/apple on the other side of the sleeve. Inside is all the remixes plus new ones for songs that were only available in mono or haven’t been remixed yet. All in one big box. Probably a 50 page book similar to the sections on mono masters and past masters. All for 199.99 USD. I am in

    All 22 A-Sides except 'Please Please Me' were re-mixed in 2015 for the 1+ sets, plus some B-Sides and more. It just wouldn't make sense for these to be new stereo remixes, which belong on digital media.

    Nope, nothing before I want to hold your hand was remixed, only remastered

    Which is all that can be expected for these new singles. I don't think they're ready to break out any new spectral separation technology for a nostalgia release.

    I suspect they were done as the 2014 mono LPs, by Sean Magee from the tape masters. Hopefully they found the mono mix of 'Ask Me Why' used on the original single.

    Of course, there wouldn't be much new if this is the case, as they will basically be the same as the original singles. They could sound very good however, as evidenced by the 2014 LPs.

    I think I'm going to buy two. One to open and not play, and the other one to keep sealed...this release is a little lame and its target is the nostalgia market that shops at Target...
