About time this showed up on CD. I bought the original vinyl when it came out in 76. The CDC has been remastered by Giles and has extra tracks:

Cool. Looking forward to hearing what sort of "cleaning" up Giles has managed to achieve.

In order to help us celebrate it being 50 years since A Hard Days Night was released, a new cleaned up BluRay of the film is being release. And it'll only cost "19.09 (??) from a certain online supplier. OK, there will be a few bonus bits and interviews thrown in, the audio will probably be better, but I doubt it will be up to the Remastered Mono standard.

Eh? It is 52 years since A Hard Days Night was released and it has been available on Blu Ray for some time.

Given the general price of vinyls theses days, this seems a fairly reasonable collection, especially double and triple albums at £24.99

I saw Abbey Road in the newsagent for a tenner. Was nearly tempted.

It is sort of tempting but on the other hand, why do I need it when I already have all this music many times over. It also reeks a little of barrel scraping by Apple.

Our local Tiger (chainstore? ) had various LPs (please, not 'vinyls') for 8 quid. One Beatles included.

I bought several of Deagostini's jazz albums last year and they were very good pressings. So today I bought their Abbey Road. It's fab. Flat as a pancake and free from pops and clicks. I have a 1971 pressing that I haven't played for a long time, having only played CD versions for several years. Tonight on headphones it really sounded very good.

Stop trying to tempt me you naughty man. I think I have that same 1971 pressing, which was much played in the pre CD era.

I've caved in and taken out a subscription having also been impressed with the Abbey Road pressing.

Presumably though it's mastered using recent digital remasters rather than original analogue tapes?

Correct, I'm pretty sure it's the 2012 remaster

I gave in and bought it as well. Officially it's a one-off. Unofficially, I haven't made my mind up yet....

Same here. There are a few albums that I don't feel I need on vinyl, 1 and the Anthologies for example so a subscription seems excessive but the original albums and the red & blue are all attracting my interest. We'll see. Shame they haven't thought to do a special pressing of Oldies But Goldies as an exclusive for the magazine. Would've been a nice touch.

Abbey Road was the first Beatles album I ever owned and remains my favourite so a nice plece to start.

I was bought that for Christmas. Great isn't it!! And it did take me back a few years (ok a lot!) when building it.  Grin

So, if nothing else this is a good excuse to listen to the albums from start to finish, which I very rarely do these days. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately the pressing is not perfect. There was a bit of surface noise on a couple of tracks and an odd click after Maxwell's Silver Hammer. I notice that the individual tracks are not delineated on the vinyl. Is this a new thing? I am sure that was not the case on my original vinyl copy, at least not on side 1. What really impressed me was the amount of bass they managed to get into the vinyl and overall it is just a nice thing to have and hold.

I think I am in for the long haul (sigh). Sgt Pepper is up next. I will be interested to see if the packaging includes the inserts. Same goes for the White Album poster and the Magical Mystery Tour book. And will the early albums be mono or stereo? The latter I suspect.

I seem to recall that my vinyl original, probably a 70s pressing, didn't have clear spaces between the tracks.

Just bought the Sgt Pepper LP; all the inserts are included.

The "new" insert of sleeve notes states that 2 of the faces from the original collage had been painted out:

Leo Gorcey (actor, one of The Bowery Boys) - his image would have appeared on the back row between The Varga Girl and the other Bowery Boy Huntz Hall; apparently Gorcey requested a fee.

And Mahatma Gandhi - from just behind Diana Dors - at the request of EMI.

As I no longer have an original sleeve to compare it with, have these changes been made for the re-issue(s) or did they not appear on the original?  I'm 99.999% sure I remember Gandhi being on there...
