The Beatles mono albums have been newly remastered for release on vinyl this September.
Wait a minute…..wasn’t their mono and stereo catalog remastered just five years ago?
Well yes, but while those mono/stereo CD sets and vinyl stereo box set were mastered from digital remasters created in 2009, this new vinyl set has been cut without the use of any digital technology.
All the tracks were mastered directly from the quarter inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios using the same procedures used in the 1960’s, guided by the original albums and detailed cutting notes made by the original engineers.
The down side: perfection has its price.
Amazon is taking pre-orders for the limited box set containing all 14 vinyl discs and a 108 page hardbound book for $409.26.
