I'm waiting for my stereo box set to come in the mail, but I won't open it until my birthday (since it's technically a gift).

I'm scared I won't be able to last. My birthday is soon, luckily (September 25th). Hopefully I won't cave in before then!!

What's sad is that I have other bday gifts at my house right now, and I have been feeling them up to guess what they are. I should be ashamed... LOL.

I have the mono box still in plastic.  I bought all of the stereo albums individually (no box available at the store) except I need YS and LIB.

Question for you Bobber...  did you open the mono box.  I have it as well and have not opened it yet.  Should I just go ahead and open it or keep it sealed?  (I have the stereo as well and have listened to all of them.)

Dunno. I opened the box, but haven't opened the separate cd's yet. I'm working my way through the stereo's now. I think I will open the others eventually. If it was for the value, I wouldn't have bought them. I bought the mono's because I wanted to listen to them.

I was debated how to store them, and yet still have access to listening to them (both stereo and mono). I pulled all of the CDs out of their cases and put them in jewel cases. Now I do not have to get my grubby greasy hands on them. I am good at taking care of CDs, I have no kids and my wife will not touch them. So I thought this was a good way to take care of them.

Because I'm kind of on a tight budget right now I only ordered my two favorites: Abbey Road and Magical Mystery Tour. They should be in on Tuesday.

On a side note: I think it's rediculous that they're charging full price for these albums again. Haven't they made enough on these albums already in the past 47-39 years? I bet that 90% of all the people that buy these remasters have already bought all these albums at least once, it would've been a nice gesture to the loyal fans if they would've made these things midprice.

Joost, I wish they would have combined both the stereo and mono albums into ONE set at a reasonable price. That would have made me very happy.

Several classic albums from the 60s ("Odessey & Oracle", "Pet Sounds" and the self-titled Love album come to mind) have been re-issued with the stereo and mono mixes on one single disc. That's what they should have done.

I think this whole project is a total rip off.

On the other hand, PR-wise it certainly has been a great move that people always had to pay full price for the Beatles' music. It kept their music classy and somewhat "exclusive". Being first and foremost a Beach Boys fan I've always been a bit "jealous" of the way the Beatles catalogue has been treated. The Beach Boys' music has been given away for free with newspapers. It's been released on too many crappy budget comps to count. Albums have been out of print for years or even decades. Most of their albums have never even been released on seperate CDs, only on mid-price 2-albums-on-1-CD-releases! I think the Beach Boys discography has devaluated a lot by the way that Capitol and the band has been treating it the last few decades. It's a complete mess. It's a good thing that The Beatles never allowed that to happen to their music.
