Beautiful condition box set with hardcover book and 11 LPs (14 discs) pressed by Optimal Media in Germany. The album covers and vinyl are all in NEAR MINT condition. The 108 page book AND Mono Masters are STILL SEALED in original shrinkwrap. All Sgt Pepper and White Album inserts and posters are included.
Each album also has a small printed insert explaining the vinyl cutting process of each album. This was my personal copy of this set. I have had it since it was released new in 2014. I never opened the shrinkwrap on the book, nor the Mono Masters album (since I already had an open copy of that album). Each of the other vinyl was played exactly 2 times on a properly set up Technics SL-1200 MK6 with an Ortofon 2M Mono SE cartridge.
I played them one time to listen through, and then a second time to digitize them. These records are heavy 180 gram pressing with the Parlophone & Apple labels (Magical Mystery Tour has a Capitol label). The records were pressed by Optimal Media in Germany.
This boxed set is out of print and is quickly becoming a collectors item. All albums except Mono Masters are in re-sealable plastic sleeves (Mono Masters is shrink wrapped). I have cleaned all of the open records for you on a Record Doctor VI Record Cleaning wet vacuum machine (except Mono Masters which is still factory sealed).CAVEATS: - The small insert in With The Beatles (that explains the cutting process) is actually for Please Please Me. It came this way from the factory. The white glossy box has a very small dent in the top and some minor imperfections from 6+ years of storage.
The outer slipcase is provided but it has some clear dents and rips as it has protected the glossy box. Please reference the photos for condition. From a smoke free and pet free home. ---- General Info: - Capitol UPC 5099963379716 - 14 LP box set issued 2014 - Limited Edition, 180 gram The Beatles get back to mono in a limited edition 14 LP box set! - 180-gram LPs pressed in Germany by Optimal Media - Newly remastered for vinyl from the analogue tapes by Sean Magee and Steve Berkowitz - Cut to lacquer on a VMS80 lathe - Exclusive 12 108-page hardbound book with rare studio photos!Berkowitz told me that in his opinion and in the opinions of many, the mono mixes were the more important reissues and I agree. The Beatles in mono is how most listeners first heard the Fab 4's first recordings, when mono was the predominant audio format. Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary. Now comes The Beatles In Mono vinyl box set - 14 180-gram LPs for sale individually and as a lavish, limited boxed edition featuring a 12 108-page hardbound book with rare photos and fascinating archive documents. The release includes all nine original mono mixed U. Albums plus the original American-compiled mono Magical Mystery Tour and the Mono Masters, a three LP collection of non-album tracks also compiled and mastered from the original analogue tapes. As mentioned in the quote above, analog expert and viny guru Michael Fremer, of AnalogPlanet. Com, says EMI representatives heard and responded to criticisms concerning digitally sourced mastering used to produce The Beatles Stereo Box Set on vinyl. For the mono version, the decision was made to use an all-analog mastering chain to the degree possible. It's important to remember that the tapes have aged - some as much as fifty years - and the monitoring, playback and mastering equipment have changed as well, even though the work was done in the very same room in which the originals were mastered.
Solid state has replaced tubes in the cutting chain, writes Fremer. The Beatles' mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by Grammy-winning engineer Sean Magee and Grammy-winning mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz. While The Beatles In Mono CD boxed set released in 2009 was created from digital remasters, for this new vinyl project, Magee and Berkowitz cut the records without using any digital technology. Instead, they employed the same procedures used in the 1960s, guided by the original albums and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers.
Working in the same room at Abbey Road where most of The Beatles' albums were initially cut, the pair first dedicated weeks to concentrated listening, fastidiously comparing the master tapes with first pressings of the mono records made in the 1960s. Using a rigorously tested Studer A80 machine to play back the precious tapes, the new vinyl was cut on a 1980s-era VMS80 lathe. Fremer says the lathe was equipped with a Neumann SX-74 cutter head. The originals were cut on a Scully lathe, perhaps with a Westrex cutter head.This is really a deluxe reissue project, done properly, and with careful attention to detail. Beatles collectors and even casual fans of the Lads from Liverpool will be transfixed. LP 1: Please Please Me 1.
