    I thought I'd start this thread (so these matters could be discussed!) 2025 would sound about right for a release of a Super Deluxe Edition of the material from this period for The Beatles. What can we expect? Tracks in a "bare bones" instrumental state? "Yes It Is" in a cappella mode, maybe? The mono single for "Help!" demixed/remixed into stereo? A complete and different take of "That Means A Lot" that hasn't been heard outside of Abbey Road before? Should Ken Thorne's complete film soundtrack music be included?

    We can expect that this thread will be on page 11,217 before the official announcement in 2024, and then will reach 19,435 pages by release day.

    I assume "Ticket To Ride" will still be on it.

    Well... I hope.

    A pre-hash of what we got for the 70th anniversary.

    Considering we’ve gotten the 50th anniversary box sets, we might have to wait another 50 years for this box set!

    Hopefully some tasteful remixes, splitting the double-tracked vocals a la early Beach Boys stereo mixes, Yesterday mixed more like the mono version (drier vocals), some decent outtakes like Wait, That Means A Lot.

    I can’t tell if this thread is real, but your post made me think. I actually find split vocals distracting because they’re so unrealistic for non-psychedelic songs. I think remixing the multis along the lines of the tracks on 1+ would be better—bringing up the instruments and doing some slight pans of the vocals but leaving them basically centered.

    I suspect that the 1964 albums will have some demising done.

    I disagree. There isn’t really a good way to mix them otherwise, and the proof is in your comment. The mixes on 1+ do separate the vocals.

    I Feel Fine
    Paperback Writer
    Can’t Buy Me Love

    were all done just like that.

    Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out have a vocal centered and to the hard right, which is much weirder I think.

    Not a joke: I set the thread up with serious intent!
    It would be cool to get some outtakes of "Bad Boy" and "Dizzy, Miss Lizzy" (comma included as per the original Larry Williams single).

    I can only look as far ahead as the upcoming Let It Be. I'm fairly optimistic I'll still be around for that one at least :D

    I hope y'all have seen the recent remastering of the movie itself. They did an extraordinary job. And the film is a hoot if you haven't seen it. A spoof on James Bond type films.

    I hear Peter Jackson is making a whole new film from dozens of hours of unused footage of Small Nude Paul.

    I really do not want to think about the 60th anniversary of Help! Can we go back and do the 20th, or better still, the 10th?
