Capitol is releasing the first 3 (4? I forget) Beatles albums in a box set. The songs have been remastered and they're releasing both mono and stereo version of all the songs. Okay, so now the old Beatles songs sound much nicer, and if you're particularly nostalgic for the mono mixed lp versions. But, when I first saw it, my first reaction was to roll my eyes and groan. "ANOTHER ****ING BEATLES ALBUM???" Yes yes, it will sell, and the Beatles are the most sucessful and accessible pop group in history. But is it ever possible they could suffer from overexposure? The constant releases, reissues etc. it feels so escapist; another oppurunity for crotchety music fans to say "The Beatles were amazing! The 60's were great! Music now sucks!" and this attitude is very irritating to me. The Beatles were very good, granted, but they are NOT the final statement of rock and roll....much less music in general. So how many people are going to get this? P.S: The band was not very compliant with this collection's release. It's Capitol's idea, not Paul Mcartney and Ringo and the estates of Harrison & Lennon being greedy.
