I did know that Ortofon made a Mono cart specifically for them and there is no way I'm going to shell out $600 for it.

You don't have to. The 2M mm Mono cartridge is about as good as the Beatle model. I doubt I could hear the difference, anyway.
I left my turntable at Music Direct for some tweaking. We were going to stop at Hot Dougs, but it was a three hour line on Saturday...

At the store again today to buy Dude Incredible and was tempted again by the monos. These versions of the white album are paginated like the originals and each with a different number. Almost bought a copy but the shrink had bent the corners of all of them. I hate that. Going to look for a better wrapped copy. But yeah, I think I want the white album mono. Elisha does it come with all the poster and picture inserts?

It's silly and and it's kinda a gimmick, but there is that part of me that says "Unique number on the cover. Just snag one. It's cool. You don't have the White Album in mono."

arrrgggghhhhh

Edit: Goddammit, I held out for mere minutes - it's on its way. :roll:

I must be good at selling these because I raved at some guy next to me in the store yesterday about them and he walked out with Please Please Me in mono.

Yes, The White Album has the poster and glossy band photos etc... All of the packaging is top notch.

The mono mix of The White Album is more powerful than the stereo mix and more than any of the others, there are tons of noticeably different parts. Longer or shorter songs, additional or missing instruments and vocals etc... If you love this album, you should have both mixes. Like virtually all of them, the drums sound much better on the mono mixes.

Lot's of weird on The Beatles if you're used to just the stereo mix.

Different jet sounds on Back in the USSR

Different bird sounds in Blackbird

Helter Skelter is completely different and cuts off Ringo's "I got blisters on my fingers!"

Don't Pass Me Buy is way sped up

Sexy Sadie only has one tambourine tap in the beginning...!

They couldn't be bothered to do a mono mix of Revolution #9, so they just used the stereo mix and folded it down to mono.

Anyone else here excited about the 200 minute 1+ release with the restored promo films? Only curious about the new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes in the context of the videos personally, if they intend to eventually do this for the whole back catalogue as a lot of people seem to be thinking I can't imagine ever wanting to play them rather than the mono remasters. Also would have preferred having both discs as one chronological sequence for the deluxe, not having Strawberry Fields Forever back-to-back with Penny Lane seems like a casualty of having various edition formats for this reissue. Will still be buying however.

1. LOVE ME DO
Newly edited clip, featuring material from BBC TV’s The Mersey Sound, with performance footage filmed on 27 August 1963 at the Little Theatre, Southport.
2. FROM ME TO YOU
A live performance at the 1963 Royal Variety Show, filmed at The Prince Of Wales Theatre, London, on 4 November 1963.
3. SHE LOVES YOU
A live performance from the Swedish Television show Drop In, recorded on 30 October 1963 during a short Scandinavian tour.

8. EIGHT DAYS A WEEK
A brand new clip edited from material filmed at the Shea Stadium concert in New York City on 15 August 1965, during which the band performed twelve songs, but ‘Eight Days A Week’ was not among them. The clip says so much about the band’s frenetic lifestyle in 1965, at the height of Beatlemania.

3. WORDS OF LOVE
When On Air – Live At The BBC Volume 2 was released in 2013, it included ‘Words Of Love’, a Buddy Holly composition that the band recorded for radio. This new clip is a mix of existing footage and innovative animation.

Watched both dvd's in the Beatles 1 cd/dvd set. WOW, Apple did a great job. A few good live songs, too, with a minimum of doctoring. Some of the later recordings (Penny Lane, A Day in the Life) really benefit from the re-mastering.

I know FM Mayfair doesn't post here anymore, but I watched most of All You Need Is Cash for the first time the other day, after hearing about The Rutles for years, and yup, it's pretty good. Idle said during an interview years later that it was the first mockumentary ever. He might be right, but I'm surprised no one took a stab at that sooner.

Anyway, I enjoy listening to the Beatles. Something I've noticed is that their vocals were rarely if ever out of tune. They could belt it and harmonize really well under just about any circumstances. Maybe it was the Hamburg era that drilled this into them, or maybe they were just naturally good singers, but their vocal chops might have been their biggest asset, something that set them apart from the rest.

As of press time... 26 people need to get their heads checked.

There are so many examples out there, that you can watch, of the Beatles playing live under basically impossible conditions (i.e. not able to hear themselves at all), and they never sound that bad. You have to know how hard that shit was to really appreciate it.

That's what I mean. There would be thousands of hysterical adolescent girls, whose ear-piercing screams drowned out nearly everything. The Beatles would be playing through a tiny p.a., sometimes with no monitors. And yet the band could hit every high note, just about, and be in tune with each other. Pretty impressive.

Also impressive is when Paul and George would be singing back-up vocals, and they'd do that "woo" or "ooh" thing wherein they manically shake their heads side to side really quick for vibrato, and they wouldn''t get dizzy or have headaches. Haven't done my homework here, but I wonder if they were on uppers or something.

Early live Beatles footage is a blast.
