I was excited about the release until I saw the price, and thought, no way am I paying $130 for this. As luck had it, at the end of November, it started stair stepping down in price about every 12 hours on Amazon. So I kept watching. When it hit $109, my wife started "you have to get this". That night before bed, it hit $103. Next morning it was $95 and I thought under $100 was too good to pass up, so I hit the button. Dropped once more after I ordered to $89 and then shot back up to $130. I came for the book, and the fact that it was numbered, but I stayed for music. I love the remix and the sound quality of the Esher demos is amazing. Also, very much enjoy the 3 CDs of outtakes, etc... Seems like this remix is getting higher praise than the Pepper one, although I really enjoy that one as well. After only having the original stereo mix for my whole life, and then 2 years ago getting the mono cd set and hearing the white album in mono and now this new stereo remix, is just great for a white album fan. So currently have the white album on a mid 80s vinyl, 87 CD, '09 mono CD, 2014 mono vinyl and '18 remix on CD and the 4LP vinyl, plus the mono transfer on the blu-ray. I think I'm set on the White Album for a bit!
