It was around 2004-2005 and re-mastered Beatles CDs were finally materializing, albeit at a Disneyesque pace. In fact they were all being introduced 40 years to the day from the original release. After initially pining for an unpeeled Butcher cover jewel case to come out in limited runs the following year, I ultimately realized that I despised the sound of the new re-masters. Unfortunately, I didn’t listen to any of them because, like in real life, my rectifier was blown in my dream too. I signed in to Ebay (I had over 150,000 feedbacks) to see if I could pick up some of those “official” Japanese MFSL gold discs and I was amazed to find the original 1987 Beatles releases were selling for $80 to $100 a piece! "These are the ones to get. Amazing sound just as George Martin intended." Visibly shaken, I continued my search and was delighted to stumble across a killer deal on the increasingly elusive Madacy DVD of Let It Be!
