I think a lot of people who will buy these were around when the Beatles conquered the U.S., had the original Capitol albums, but got rid of them years ago and perhaps never bought the Capitol CDs so they may not remember what the orginals sound like. My guess is that they will be happy with this release for the sound and the packaging, which looks to be on a par with the 2009 Mono Box.
I'm not as much of a stickler for the original sound as some people are, so I pre-ordered it. I have the Capitol CDs if I want the original sound. But as some of you know, I'm a sucker for nice new shiny Beatles stuff.
I think so too, George. And now they'll have the chance to buy the whole set at once unlike the installment release of the previous Capitol set. The packaging looks nicer too.
