The Beatles to Release Mono Vinyl Box

Subscribe to 103.7 The Hawk on

Another Beatles box set will soon be on its way. On Sept. 8, Apple will release the group’s entire mono catalog on 180-gram vinyl in a new 14-LP collection. You can watch the trailer above.

The Second Disc reports that ‘The Beatles In Mono’ is the vinyl representation of the group’s 2009 CD mono box. It contains everything up through the band’s 1968 self-titled “White Album,” adding a three-LP set of non-LP tracks. The Beatles’ last two records, ‘Abbey Road’ and ‘Let It Be,’ featured identical stereo and mono mixes.

Perhaps most impressively in this digital age, the production team eschewed modern technology in favor of the way records were cut back in the Beatles’ day. “In an audiophile-minded undertaking,” the press release states, “the Beatles’ acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by Grammy-winning engineer Sean Magee and Grammy-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 ’60s, guided by the original albums and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers.”

While the discs will also be available separately, the limited-edition box includes a 108-page hardcover book complete with photos, archive documents and essays on the mastering process.
