May cost a fortune though but i always thought that would be cool!!
disc 1: please please me (mono & stereo mixes)
disc 2: alternative Please Please Me (takes, demos etc)
(with a nice little booklet about the album)
I think they have to do a fine balancing act between cost and content. While your package would please folk like us who would be prepared to part with the spondoolies, it might alienate a big chunk of first time buyers, who don't want to hear outtakes.
I bought Love's Forever Changes, and the cd is ruined by the inclusion of loads of alternatives, so it's impossible for a first time listener like myself to get a feel for what the album was really like. And it was an impulse buy, and I certainly wouldn't have paid over the odds for an extra alternate cd.
And while I'm gripping, cd booklets are fine if your under 25 with 20/20 vision. Old f*ckers like me go nearly blind trying to read them. I HATE CD'S. AND HANDSFREE MOBILES (you can't spot the nutters at bus stops anymore).
I curse Gerard Philips, he was such a stupid git.
