The Beatles next expanded box-set reissue, out next month, will focus on 1969's Abbey Road, their 12-times platinum penultimate album.Producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell sourced the original eight-track session tapes for a new remix of the album's original 17 tracks, which will be offered in stereo, high-res stereo, 5.1 surround and Dolby Atmos.The set, due on Sept. 27, also includes 23 session recordings and demos, most of which are previously unreleased.

Re: Beatles: Abbey Road - Super Deluxe Set 9/27

Tempting since itís such an iconic album and one of the finest by The Beatles (although their albums are all damn good). Not sure if Iíll pick this up or not. If so Iíd probably wait for a price drop or something. I already own the album a few times over (the original CD release, the 2011 remastered CD, and a copy on vinyl).

I ordered the second it went up. I love the Sgt. Pepper and White Album box set and I don't expect that to change with Abbey Road.

Re: Beatles: Abbey Road - Super Deluxe Set 9/27

Very tempting! I'm not a Beatles expert, have any of the takes and demos on discs two and three been officially released before?

EDIT: Never mind, the announcement says most of those are unreleased. Cool!

EDIT Part Deux: So the deluxe version with the book doesn't include the album on vinyl as well?

Re: Beatles: Abbey Road - Super Deluxe Set 9/27

Seems kind of light compared to some box sets we are getting these days like from Bob Dylan. I get the impression they left many session takes off the set.

With Bob Dylan it just one person that has to OK everything even as cranky as the old bastard is. With the Beatles you have two living members and two widows who have never agreed on anything in their lives who have to OK what goes on the sets.Rumor is that Paul wanted Carnival Of Light to be on the Pepper box but George was dead set against it ever coming out so Olivia blocked it. I am surprised these Beatles sets have been released at all.

Same here. I don't care much about the CD's but the hi-res Blu Ray's & 5.1 mixes are extraordinary. Shame they are not available on their own.

Re: Beatles: Abbey Road - Super Deluxe Set 9/27

Do these go on sale? Most deluxe sets do, but of course everything is different for The Beatles (and Led Zeppelin)

Listening to those three tracks, the first sounds like the last remaster to me. Maybe a bit crisper?
The second is interesting, especially the new lyrics. But I don't think I'd listen to it much. The third, instrumental track is nice, obviously. One of the best Beatles songs ever recorded and the instrumentation is a big reason why.

Maybe not sale, but usually you can find an outlet that somehow marks them down a bit. I picked up the White Album set last year when Barnes & Noble ran a huge discount on CDs.

Re: Beatles: Abbey Road - Super Deluxe Set 9/27

I waited a year to get the Beatles in Mono CD box set and paid about half of what it went for when it first came out, so it does happen. Might be a case by case basis though.
