    I think somewhat randomly is what we will get, but we will get two per year, probably smaller sets. 2CD/1BR without a huge book, but a nice booklet about the sessions nonetheless. 2LP sets, too.

    I could see Please Please Me with the full Decca Audition on CD2, With the Beatles with audio from the Washington DC show on CD2, A Hard Days Night with a few alt-takes and the movie's incidental music on CD2...then starting with Beatles for Sale we have more legit alternate takes for every album so that shouldn't be hard to make a bonus disc.

    It’s an entirely new mix, not a remaster.

    Sorry, new mix then. But was this cut at half speed?

    My copy of Abbey Road 50th Anniversary has "Miles Abbey Road 1/2 Speed" in the deadwax.

    Just checked my Sct. Pepper and White Album and you are indeed right! Both say "1/2 speed remastered"

    I am a fan of The Beatles (who isn't) but as I am only 40 years old it is not something I grew up with other than the songs on the radio or in movies. I think if you are also in that camp you will love the remixes of Abbey Road, as well as, the white album, and Sgt. Pepper's. I could see that if you have a long past with these albums that the recent remixes could be off-putting. I've read a lot of reviews on these (probably too many) and I think these re-issues are tastefully done, but modernized in spots. Not overwhelming so, but noticeable if you have a long history with the album. That seems to be somewhat the consensus. On the quality side, all the recent anniversary re-issues of The Beatles by Giles Martin are flat and dead quiet on my system. And most importantly when I put these on the turntable my wife smiles. Sometimes that's all you need.

    I wish the band had done a photoshoot like this with Billy Preston for the Get Back single.

    Loved that line. No expert's negative review can give you one single reason that trumps that.
