I'm not even hesitating for a moment getting this Whit Album Deluxe. Not only do we get a remix, which was fucking great for SP but we get the Esther demos in stereo. How can you not want this?
Because I have limited physical space to house it, and if I only keep a digital version, I'll never listen to it.
While I'm not into physical product anymore, I lost all of my albums and CD's in a fire so I just do digital now but maybe you're not a Beatles fan, which is cool, then you shouln't get it. The SP remix was amazing and I doubt you will find many people who disagree. If you are familiar with the Esther demos you'll already know how great they are and to have them in pure form and stereo is fucking amazing.

Probably only available in Englandshire...

How many albums with a plain cover would be immediately recognised across the planet with just the words “The White Album”? A nightmare for the marketing team, but as ever, the ideas and wishes of the Fab Four fifty years ago were way ahead of their time. Respected, award winning actor Martin Freeman is a huge fan of The Beatles 1968 revolutionary work (which John Lennon regarded as their song writing zenith) and will provide enlightening, entertaining and surprising insights into it.
This special celebration will include in depth appreciation by fans, experts and critics.
Martin Freeman and Giles Martin will introduce and explain a sample of never before heard material from the album’s original fabled Esher sessions at George Harrison’s house.
Most importantly it will be a Listening Party for a double album from one of the greatest and most innovative bands of the time – all the original album tracks played, enjoyed and discussed over an afternoon with the finest commentators and contributors.
Back In The USSR is perhaps the greatest album opener. While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Blackbird and Good Night undeniably some of the most beautiful songs written in the 1960s and 70s. Revolution 9 would be most people’s first experience of electronic avant-garde experimentation.
With his thirst for knowledge and previous presenting experience on 6 Music and Radio 2, Martin Freeman is keen to dig deep into key tracks and will also hear about the Abbey Road recordings and production sessions with those involved at the time and with the new 2018 mixes.
Martin will look at the turbulent times of 1968 with archive illustrations and look at the era, reflected on the album, when peace and love started to evolve into something different. It was the year of the Apollo 7 beaming back TV pictures from space, Led Zeppelin’s first live gig, The Kink’s Village Green Preservation Society, the new Trojan Record label and a kiss between Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura breaking new ground.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Hey bulldogs, here's a shitload of Beatles stuff for you. My Purple Chick sets were all low biterate mp3s, so I went looking for better quality and found this: https://m.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a ... 592&type=3

Pre-White Album is high bitrate mp3, after is FLAC. There are other boots in the batch (e.g., Unsurpassed Masters).

As well, in there is a cd-rom that reproduces around 80 issues of a Beatles magazine from the 60s. I've dl'd it before but never been able to access the files because I've never found something to read dcr files. But I did some googling and found someone who's converted them all to pdf: http://loudoldguys.com/AbbeyRoad/BeatlesMonthlyBooks/

Enjoyez-vous/
Endut! Hoch Hech!
