Pressed on 180-gram audiophile-quality vinyl and with replicated artwork, the 14 albums are returned to their original glory. Extras include the poster in The White Album, the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band’s cutouts, and special inner bags for some of the titles. Each album will also be available individually, and the boxset will be accompanied by lavish 252-page hardbound book. The boxset will be a limited run of 50,000 copies worldwide.
The book is authored by award-winning radio producer Kevin Howlett and features a dedicated chapter for each of the albums, as well as insight into the creation of the remasters and how the vinyl albums were prepared. The 12”x12” book showcases a wealth of photographs spanning The Beatles’ recording career, including many images which were not included in the 2009 CD booklets.
And for you mono fans? Well in 2013 the remastered albums will make their mono vinyl debuts.
