I notice the HMV Box sets are missing in the CD sections, were they deemed "unofficial" ?

It's nice having a collection of the original mixes in one area (+1962-1966) to spin when other releases/reissues in your collection start getting a little too familiar.

It’s never occurred to me that there might be fans of early Beatles material over later material, or vise vera. The Beatles music has always seemed to be a consistent continuum, one song leading to another for a magical mystery experience.

What makes the 2010 collection so much better is the attention to detail with with far better digital representation, an aspect that is nearly instantly noticeable. One reviewer claimed, “Audiophiles will testify that the empty space on audio tracks is just as important as the space reserved for the music. This re-issue (2010) allows for a more dynamic experience rather than just a brick wall of sound.” I can assure you, he’s correct, it’s all an example of the kind of care that was given to bring you a brilliantly pleasing sound.

With that in mind, if you’re going to own the Blue disc, then why not own the Red one as well, though if you’re at all like me, you’re hand will always gravitate to the blue collection, as the music is much more mature, more warm, more thoughtful, more cinematic and enticing. All of the material selects is first rate. What makes the Red and Blue albums different from most compilations before and after is how they attacked the band’s catalog. The Beatles songbook is as vast as any out there. With that in mind, in would seem that selecting the material to be include would be a sincere challenge. Oddly enough, it was Beatle villain and onetime manager Allen Klein who pulled this masterpiece together. Outside of the Beatles themselves, it was Klein, and not Yoko Ono, who was primarily responsible for the bands demise. While doing such a sonically wonderful job here does not offer Klein redemption, although the song selection on the Blue album is elegant. Not only are the key album tracks and singles well positioned and represented, but considered attention has paid to some unexpected tracks and B-sides such as “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” and “Old Brown Shoe.”

It’s just one of the better compilations out there, both in the selection of the material and the sonic quality of that material.

C/D side seems a little quieter than the A/B side, but not a big deal. I disagree with those saying it's too many songs crammed onto two discs. It's definitely a lot, but the mastering is solid and it sounds good to me. Plus, it's blue vinyl.

This edition from Japan and its earlier red counterpart look and sound amazing imo. Anyone else agree?

I’d like to know who chose the tracks from the white album? Great compilation let down by a bad selection from that album. Also this press (although not analog like the previous version) actually sounds great, had issues with the previous version, pretty noisy pressing, I tried 3! This one sounds better to me.

Why do we need more reissues of this thing? What a waste of pressing plants.
