Such a jaw-dropping mix and pressing. Grabbed for $50 at Walmart, believe it or not!

I grew up listening to a 1968 pressing of this and this album is stunning in its clarity and depth

I have just did very careful A/B/C test comparing this with 68 original stereo and 2014 mono.
Hard to admit, but this half speed mastering by Giles Martin sounds the best by far to my ears.
Totally agree that the vocals are very clean and instruments polished / separated, but I LIKE it.
So audiophile, brilliant above reasoning !
( please notice I am quite young, not listening Beatles for like 20-30-40 years )

Walmart sells whatever the distributors ship to them. You can also get analog Hendrix cuts there, Tom Petty, etc...they don't secretly press "walmart" copies that are cheaply made.
Feel confident when buying for that amazing price, too. Good stuff.

The White Album in its newest incarnation. Half-speed mastering paid off. Would recommend if seeking a new copy. Have I heard the originals? Nope, but this sounds great.

This boxset is great. The records sound crisp and balanced, and the packaging is off the charts. If you want a new copy of the White Album, you’re probably going to spend at least $35. Spend the extra $15 and pick up the additionally demos 2LP with the boxset.

did anybody else get 2 Ringo prints instead of 1?

It's ok. The demos are worth it. Too much bottom end for me. My 1978 white vinyl purple label and 2014 mono are better to my ears.

Great sound. And yes, the Esher demos are a revelatory listen. My only gripe is that they could have put in a booklet (the CD version has a 24pg booklet), but all we have is just a 4pg insert. Urgh. Other than that, this is a fine boxset. And if you got this cheap recently (via Walmart or Amazon), you’ve got yourself a steal!

I too was lucky to find a copy of this set at Walmart for 50 bones. Worth it for the Esher Demos alone. Mindblowing. Every Beatles fan should own this.
