Resnikoff confirms that a vinyl edition of the Beatles’ mono albums, released on CD in 2009, will be issued later this year on a date to be announced.

That's fine and dandy but, in the wake of the recent mono/stereo releases of the U.S. albums, I'd value much more a mono/stereo release of each of the U.K. albums on CD for a tenner each.
Others might like the current arrangement, but for me having a stereo box AND a mono box is unwieldy (I don't like box sets) and I'd much rather buy the releases over a period of time.
It would also have meant the campaign would have stretched over a wider period, rather than the one big splurge.

I voted with my feet in 2009 and am the proud owner of just one of the 2009 releases, 'The White Album', bizarrely picked up in an Oxfam three weeks after its release for £1!!!

And I am the proud owner of none of the 2009 releases. :)

Can I ask why not?
My own reason was because I could think of no earthly reason (apart from profit) why each LP couldn't have the mono and stereo versions on one disc.

Can I ask why not?

Because I was always glad with my old 1987 CDs, and I didn't like the way the 2009 releases sounded, having listened to several songs from those new CDs. They sound cleaner, yes, but also highly artificial to my ears. Furthermore, I don't like the fact that they erased some "mistakes" from the original masters.

Are you talking about the stereo or the mono box?  I can see your point if you're referring to the stereo box, although I don't agree; I like the sound of it.

The mono box, to my ears at least might be the greatest CD remasters ever.  Nothing was messed with; they sound real and honest.

The 2009 MONO set is one of my prized possessions.  I agree with you, George.  It's very special.

Nowhere Man, if you haven't heard Sgt. Pepper's in MONO, then you really haven't heard it at all.  We knew this years ago and that's why I bought the UK MONO LP not long after its release.  Listening on YouTube doesn't come close to hearing the MONO LP on a fine stereo system.  Listening to the remastered MONO CD recreates the experience.

I tend to prefer stereo. Just in some exceptions I prefer mono. For example, I don't like the stereo Please Please Me and With The Beatles.

I do know that the Beatles worked more on the mono masters, but still prefer stereo.

So you'll be able to buy The 'mono' Beatles's LPs individually on a medium which few people still buy, but you still can't buy them in mono individually on a medium which many/most people still utilize, i.e. CD.....erm, OK.

The Record Industry circa 2014 seems almost hell-bent on NOT selling records.
£10 notes are literally burning my pockets in readiness to be spent at HMV on the 'White Album' CD in mono.

I honestly don't understand, I'll buy an Os Mutantes CD instead then, Apple.

I agree that the mono CDs should be sold individually.  I never understood why not.

I am tempted to be extremely excited about this. I say tempted because I keep thinking about your experience with the stereo vinyl box set, George. But it's encouraging that I can buy them separately.

Yep, I like the separate releases, Kelley.  I especially want to be able crank up Day Tripper and Paperback Writer in mono on vinyl!

I'm going to wait this time and read the reviews of the U.S. pressings this time and if they are bad I'll order the European pressings.

I'm going to start with Rubber Soul and hopefully I can do the Mono Masters at the same time. But now I feel bad that I don't have a great turntable. I take good care of the stylus but I hope it doesn't damage these.
