You are viewing a Beatles in Mono LP box set that was released in 2014. Note that the individual LPs in the box set were not shrink-wrapped for this box set, but were instead placed in re-sealable plastic sleeves. The book inside the box set was the only item that was truly shrink-wrapped.
That's the way they were manufactured. This is the backup copy I bought.Only that they are in the same condition they were when they left the factory. If there is a problem with the box set once it's opened, contact me and I will do my best to rectify it. While you are probably already aware of the contents of the box set, here is a write-up at the time it was released. The Beatles in Mono - Limited Edition Box Set [Vinyl LP]. This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, 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. In September 2014, The Beatles nine U. Albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork. Newly mastered from the analogue master tapes, each album will be available both individually and within a lavish, limited 14-LP boxed edition, The Beatles In Mono, which also includes a 108-page hardbound book. In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by GRAMMY(R)-winning engineer Sean Magee and GRAMMY(R)-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. Manufactured for the world at Optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles albums are presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging. The boxed collections exclusive 12-inch by 12-inch hardbound book features new essays and a detailed history of the mastering process by award-winning radio producer and author Kevin Howlett.
The book is illustrated with many rare studio photos of The Beatles, fascinating archive documents, and articles and advertisements sourced from 1960s publications. Available individually and collected in a limited 14-LP boxed edition, accompanied by an exclusive 108-page hardbound book. Please Please Me (Mono) [Vinyl LP]. With The Beatles (Mono) [Vinyl LP].
