My Partner and I decided to sell some of our old Beatles records and amazed at the interest from people, who want to know the code numbers of the record stamper and similar marked on the record. Luckily, several of ours were ‘first pressing’ so much sought after, especially in good condition.
The reason we are selling some is that we got the 14 LP boxed set recently issued in Mono, and it sounds so much better than even the original records, yet they have not used any digital trickery or processing on them.
But they used a modern record cutting lathe and the original engineering notes. So for the first time you can hear the singers and instruments how they were meant to be heard.
Many don’t realise almost all the bulk of Beatles LP’s were recorded in Mono and a stereo mix made of some later on. Can definitely recommend the 14 LP boxed mono set - The book that came with it is almost worth the cost alone.
My music teacher at primary school was Ivor Cutler, the poet and musician, and he appeared in The Magical Mystery Tour !
Any other Beatles fans out there ?
