New vinyl editions appear

The new batch of Beatles vinyl albums are being readied for release.
As we noted in September, Universal Music/Apple are set to rerelease some of The Beatles' double vinyl albums for the Christmas market via their joint Calderstone company.
Amazon in Germany and France are early as always, and they are inviting preorders for "1", "Love", "1962-1966" (aka "The Red Album") and "1967-1970" (aka "The Blue Album") which all are due out in these countries 21 November.
Expect them to be released a few days later in the UK and USA.  The "1" album is likely to be based on the remastered edition of the CD, but since no official announcement has been made yet, we can't know for sure.

The Beatles: 1967-1970 (aka "The Blue Album")

We are hoping that this is not going to continue with the release of old albums like "Rock and Roll Music", "Love Songs", "Beatles Ballads", "Reel Music" etc.

The Rolling Stones are releasing another volume in their new series of live concerts from their archives, "From The Vault" with "LA Forum" from the 1975 tour on 17 November on CD and DVD.
We'd be delighted if Universal Music/Apple could do something which was more along those lines, but then again, the Beatles never followed in the footsteps of the Rolling Stones. It was always the other way around.
