Beatles catalog remastered, on sale September 9, 2009

Great. We were looking forward to have the Beatles repackaged in one more deluxe box set. But there is more: the re-issue will coincide with the release of "The Beatles: Rock Band" video game. Christ.

Quoting from this article from Billboard magazine: the albums have been re-mastered at EMI's Abbey Road Studios in London over a four-year period, utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, "carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analog recordings," according to the statement.

Here's a suggestion about maintaining the authenticity of the original sound: keep the original.

I can magine that by Christmas 2009 these new masters will be the only Beatles available to buy, so I am going to buy a few of the current ones while I still can.

Does anyone have a first release Beatles CD? If you want to share uncompressed (or lossless compression) orginal version please use the tag MPSFTLW*
