Looks like there will finally be official releases of the U.S. A Hard Day's Night, Yesterday and Today, Revolver and Hey Jude.

These are probably legit because the label Commerical Marketing is actually Universal, who recently bought EMI. 

Plus Amazon doesn't do pre-orders for bootlegs.

There is nothing on the U.S. Amazon site yet.

Release date set for January 14, 2014.

That's good to hear, George.  Thank-you.

I bought Volumes 1 and 2 years ago and wondered when they were going to get around to Volume 3.

But the label of the US version of A Hard Day's Night was United Artists, wasn't it?

Actually, Barry, all of them are being released individually.  It would nice to know if the mastering is any different and what the packaging will look like, but there are no images on Amazon yet.

True, but Capitol acquired the rights to the soundtrack several years ago.  And sat on it.

I knew there would be a catch in there somwhere ("That's some catch, that Catch-22").  Well, I'm just gonna buy Volume 3 and be happy with my Volumes 1 and 2, and all the vinyl LPs I have from all those years ago;)

I'll wait and see if these are any good and probably fill in some gaps in the collection.

Seems kind of odd they would release the final batch in single disc format.

Definitely on the want list, though

Oh!  Now I understand, George.  I thought you meant Volumes 1 and 2 were being re-remastered. 

Nothing is mentioned about STEREO and MONO versions as we had with Volumes 1 and 2.

And I never heard of the Commercial Marketing label.

I'll wait and see.

Very good the albums are both in Mono and Stereo the first section is in Mono then Stereo you can hear the difference. I've managed to listen to all the albums I will listen to the remaining two (Revolver & Hey Jude) tomorrow for The Beatles Yesterday & Today album there's as ticket so you can choose which cover you want.

Are you going to put the trunk cover sticker over the butcher cover, Euan?

I think that was a pretty good idea the designers came up with. 

You're one of the very first to receive the set.  Congratulations!
