Looks like they might finally be doing an anniversary box set well. It looks tempting.

We never saw anything on revolver last year did we?

I am sorely tempted! I just saw that my state tax refund went into the bank today. It would cover this nicely but unfortunately Uncle Sam will have has hand out in less than two weeks and we're also still recovering from some big vet bills. I guess I'll have to just save up for it like I did for things when I was a kid. I wonder if I could get some babysitting jobs? It might be fun to go to someone else's house and watch TV all evening. LOL

I've preordered the 2CD's version - I can afford that and I can hardly wait to hear it!
Considering (future) anniversary issues of their albums, I think they should always issue unreleased tracks with the reissue as the seoncd disc.
I think we are very 'hungry' to hear 'new' Beatle material from the archives!  ;yes

And, because I'm crazy, I'll also get the Super Deluxe set eventually.

Nah.  You're not crazy, George.  The vinyl will sound great on your system. 

The only reason I passed on the Super Deluxe set is because I have a first pressing MONO Sgt. Pepper LP.

Barry, that's one reason I passed on the Super Deluxe (for now) - I have the mono on CD and vinyl, and the mono on this new set isn't a remix.

My exact reasoning too.  I handle that first pressing so carefully!  I look forward to hearing the new MONO CD in the set and how it compares to the one in my 2009 MONO box set.

Well I have to say it sounds great Giles Martin did a fantastic job. I have listened to all the CDs and the sessions are just amazing. Yes I listened to it yesterday when it was such a hot day outside I should have been outside enjoying the sun but listening to the new re realease was much more important . I will watch the DVD today.

It's here! I was a little nervous about what I might find inside, given the condition of the outside box, but it was well-protected and all appears well. The official unboxing will have to wait until tonight, since I'm just home for lunch. Amazon has the CD streaming for Prime members. I'm not sure about the other services.

I ordered the 2 CD version and the vinyl.

I ordered the Super Deluxe Edition and wound up with an album and no discs! Part of me wants to be super deluxe p*ssed, but Amazon is good about making things right. I know because I had to send back my Magical Mystery Tour Box Set because the EP was scratched.  ha2ha Part of me also wants to play the album and read the book before I send it back but I won't.

Mine is expected to ship on May 31st from Amazon.

That when I'll get my replacement (or else!).

Nice to see your AT-PL120 turntable spinning that LP, George!

On your review, I just ordered the remixed STEREO LP.  It will complement my Parlophone first-pressing LP perfectly.  My old 1967 STEREO LP is a mess.  It's been played backward and forward at all different speeds looking for clues.  ;)

My box set arrived today...a day early.  But I won't have a chance to see and listen to all it has to offer until Saturday night.

And there it is!  The ultimate clue!


12 - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise) (Remix)   1:08


Until now, you could only hear it on the MONO LP.  It's even clearer on the 2017 STEREO Remix!

You mean they packed the two LP album into your box, Kelley?  In all likelihood, Amazon will let you keep what you got and send you a new (and hopefully properly assembled) box set.  I can see how they made that error.  When the shrink-wrap is on, the two will be hard to tell apart.  The cover is a replica of an original Parlophone MONO LP cover.   

You better get a good turntable to play your LPs on.  :)

I'm glad you think so, Barry because that's exactly what did happen, only I did it. I know it sounds really dumb but I was so sure that was an album and I was afraid I wouldn't get credited if I opened it. When the second one came I was thinking more clearly and opened everything up. Yes, I'm a dingbat.

Just to reassure you, In My Life, I almost did the same thing.

I thought they'd given me the vinyl and not the CDs so I re-checked my order to make sure I hadn't made a mistake and started to look for the Amazon return slip.

Then I decided I'd better look inside the shink wrap just in case.

I carefully cut open a small part at the bottom thinking that if necessary I could put some sellotape back on.

I saw the CDs were swimming around inside and was mighty relieved.

All's well that ends well.

Watched the BBC2 documentary "Sgt. Pepper's Musical Revolution" earlier this evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Written and presented by Howard Goodall it explored the innovative "nuts and bolts" of the recording, stripping away and re-constructing the musical layers and illustrating the boundary breaking wizardry of the sessions during which The Beatles treated the studio as both playground and laboratory. It featured some previously unheard (outside of EMI Studios) outtakes and inter-song chit-chat between the boys, but what intrigued me most was Goodall's in depth analysis of some tracks whilst completely ignoring others. Fascinating stuff.

My LPs arrived and I had the chance to listen to them last night, Moog.  The new stereo remix sounds great!  Heavier and clearer as you mentioned.  It's a fine companion to my 1967 Parlophone first pressing MONO LP.  I still prefer the original MONO LP.  She's Leaving Home should never have been sped up the way it was on the old STEREO LPs and on this new remixed LP.  It sounds much sadder on the MONO LP.
