Second Beatles Boxed Set Due For Us Release

Capitol Records will release a second batch of THE BEATLES albums, as they first appeared in the US, in a four-CD box set next month (APR06). THE CAPITOL ALBUMS, VOL. 2 marks the first appearance on CD of the US versions of RUBBER SOUL, the HELP! soundtrack, THE EARLY BEATLES and BEATLES VI. When Capitol released the HEY JUDE hitmakers' first four albums in the US configurations in 2004, it re-ignited a decades-old debate between Beatles camps. One camp believes that the record companies version to be a profit-driven cultural strip-mining, while many American fans have clamoured for the release of those versions because that's what they grew up with. Before SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND the Beatles' US and British releases differed dramatically in song lineups and sound quality. According to Beatles historian BRUCE SPIZER, the new set will include mono and stereo mixes of each album - 92 tracks in total, 82 of which will be appearing on CD for the first time.

WOW1! I am really excited at the thought of Capital releasing another second Beatles Box,NOT!Sorry all this mono version and stereo version is a load of sh!!Beatle fans want something better than this. Maybe Capital and EMI they should look on other sites to see what beatles fans are buying! It is certainly not only the old run of the mill published material.We are looking for the different takes. The variations.The music we have never heard before.There is endless amounts of music and chat that the Beatles provided in those EMI vaults. So please Capital and EMI there are some Beatle fans that want something better.
