About "LOVE" and "Naked"--yes, in a sense, it's true that these discs are rehashes of old products, but I must say I loved them. The production for "Naked" was marvelous and I strongly prefer it to the original Phil Spectorized album. (However, I do miss the odd little songs and banter from the old album.)

I wouldn't call "LOVE" a must-own item, but it is intriguing to listen to because of how the Beatle songs are woven together. Maybe it's more fun for Beatle nerds to sit around and pick apart, but some of the remixes done were pleasantly surprising to me.

I think Apple/EMI do plan to reissue the entire catalogue in 5.1, 10.2 or whatever new-fangled mixing technologies are available.  But why do that when you can make a load of money from the remasters? 

I'm addicted.  Have been since 1982, when I was 11 and got my first record (20 Greatest Hits).  I've got at least 11 copies of Revolver, 9 Sgt. Peppers, 10 Beatles For Sales, etc....the two vinyl singles box sets, the vinyl ep set, the cd versions of the singles and ep sets.  I've got around 400 books.  Have got all the Beatles Monthlies, loads of fan club thingies, period magazines.......and more.  The excuse and justification each time is clear and straightforward....."it's the Beatles!".

I don't need anymore versions of Beatlemusic.  I want them though.   ;D

Of course. Anthology and BBC brought us new, previously unreleased material. I'm always eager to have that kind of stuff. Let It Be Naked on the other is not a must in my world. It's a different kind of mix, but more a Paul McCartney revenge than a must. That counts for LOVE even more. I have the cd, but it's collecting dust at the moment. I'm not saying the remasters are bad, on the contrary, but it brings me no song or anything else I haven't heard before.

for me, i'm less interested in new material than i am for the best sounding versions of the music i know so well...and i guess that would be these remasters.  according to friends, even the ripped mp3's are sonically outstanding.  this was the key question in my book, because i no longer own a cd stereo player (and i doubt i'm alone).

Somehow it's strange, isn't it? We are going to buy music we already have and know. Slightly better and remastered and repackaged... But as for me, I'm going to spend over 400 euro's to buy Beatles music. And I already have all Beatles music! Have we all gone nuts? (I have...)

Hmm yeah.. I´m still trying to figure out how I will explain it to my girlfriend.  :)

I think the powers that be were a bit mean here to us loyal Beatle fans, why didnt they sell 1 box set with both mono & stereo versions and add a few $$$$ to the price, this has been done before with remasters.

I agree, Penny Lane.  For me, the novelty wore off very quickly.  I listened to it once.  Now it's up on the shelf gathering dust.

Yeah.  They had us figured right.
