Gotta have it all! As soon as we can pre-order!

I hope the big deluxe set will offer a regular DVD option, not just Blu-Ray. We don't ALL have Blu-Ray players, you know! In fact, I'd bet DVD is STILL the most common and best-selling format of the two.

TheRockSnob said...

There won't be any visuals on the Blu-Ray. It is strictly so we can have a 5.1 soundtrack. You can't do that with DVD.

piper909 said...

I see. Well, it's a shame we don't get the 1968 promo film collection, like we did for Pepper.

I'm not happy about this for some stupid reason. I can't think of one yet, but... Grrrr.

rockall said...

Sorry, which videos did we get for Pepper? I don't recall at the moment?

rockall said...

Is the 12 min long HS a reduced version from the 27 min long? Why do you think they didn't release the longer version? Not worthy? Better keep it unreleased or for texhnical reasons? It woul have been the best opportunity to release it now! :/

Ole M. Olsen said...

Great! I’ll do it like I did with the Pepper material last year: Buy the "super delixe" box and then buy the vinyl when they release a new one with just the remixes in a few months. :-)

Tom Watson said...

Actually you can have the 5.1 on a DVD. That’s what DVD-Audio was before companies gave up on the format

Bob McCombs II said...

Lots of bands release 5.1 mixes on dvd's, all of Steven Wilson's Jethro Tull remasters are on dvd, not bluray. I hope the 5.1 mix on here is as good as the one on Sgt. Peppers, the seperation was amazing!

richard cornock said...

So that they got something left to sell for the next reissue.

Uwe Klöckner said...

With Let it be in the pipeline it is likely we also get a 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road in between. What a pity the same treatment for Rubber Soul and Revolver was not done. Does anybody know whether anything is preserved from the With the Beatles session, except for the Hold me tight and Don`t bother me outtakes?

This 12 minute version is the from the truncated slow version that was on Anthology 3 - the slow version is from the initial Helter Skelter sessions. There will ALSO be another outtake of the fast version - from the second set of sessions.

The big Sgt Pepper box set came with a DVD (or BluRay) that included a vintage "Making of" documentary (from 1992)and also the promo films for SFF, Penny Lane, and ADITL (the same edit I think that is on the "1" DVDs). I have the DVD and it also contains a 5.1 sound mix (not that does me any good on my regular stereo).

Real Quaid said...

Are they going to brickwall it again?

Jarret Cooper said...

You can have 5.1 on any DVD, and any player will play it, as long as it's in Dolby Digital or 5.1 DTS. No need for DVD-Audio.

sjdrifter said...

richard cornock If you mean the next reissue for the 75th Anniversary White Album edition, then forget it. Many of us older folk may not be around for another 25 years so it's yet another missed opportunity to release the 27 minute version of Helter Skelter. I'd really hate it if they never release that or Carnival of Light during my lifetime.

Terence Daniel Collier said...

total guess but i think the 27 min version of HS is like the one on Anth3 but..well...27 mins long. I am betting if you go to your grave never hearing it then it should not be placed very high on your list of regrets. As for Carnival of light - i would say we all want to hear that track once but probably not twice.

Nathan Anthony said...

The Penny Lane video in the Sgt. Pepper's Box is different form the "1" DVD, in that it's a different, more superior audio mix of the song in the 2017 version.

Westfield said...

I just cannot wait.

Unknown said...

Just wait for the picture discs versions similar to the pirate version slated for mid dec. 4 faces on the each side of the LPs .

piper909 said...

Kvetching about prices or what the Beatles/Apple can do about it is ignorant and a waste of time. Paul and Ringo et al. have very little to do about how record companies price products. I think the Fabs have always given fans good value for money. And these things ain't cheap to manufacture and distribute. We should be glad we're getting *anything* new, at this point, frankly.
