Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music are delighted to announce the release of the original Beatles catalogue, which has been digitally re-mastered for the first time, for worldwide CD release on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 (9-9-09), the same date as the release of the widely anticipated “The Beatles: Rock Band” video game. Each of the CDs is packaged with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released.
The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.
The collection comprises all 12 Beatles albums in stereo, with track listings and artwork as originally released in the UK , and ‘Magical Mystery Tour,’ which became part of The Beatles’ core catalogue when the CDs were first released in 1987. In addition, the collections ‘Past Masters Vol. I and II’ are now combined as one title, for a total of 14 titles over 16 discs. This will mark the first time that the first four Beatles albums will be available in stereo in their entirety on compact disc. These 14 albums, along with a DVD collection of the documentaries, will also be available for purchase together in a stereo boxed set.
Within each CD’s new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. With the exception of the ‘Past Masters’ set, newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.
A second boxed set has been created with the collector in mind. ‘The Beatles in Mono’ gathers together, in one place, all of the Beatles recordings that were mixed for a mono release. It will contain 10 of the albums with their original mono mixes, plus two further discs of mono masters (covering similar ground to the stereo tracks on ‘Past Masters’). As an added bonus, the mono “Help!” and “Rubber Soul” discs also include the original 1965 stereo mixes, which have not been previously released on CD. These albums will be packaged in mini-vinyl CD replicas of the original sleeves with all original inserts and label designs retained.

Please cancel Cold Case now
February 19th, 2009 under CBS, The Beatles. [ Comments: 10 ]

The why is this show still on the air, CBS’s Cold Case is destroying another legend’s music by featuring that genius’ songs only on their show. This time that amazing artist is John Lennon.
Here is the description that CBS supplied for the March 22nd episode:

In the episode, titled “Mind Games,” Rush (Kathryn Morris) and the team investigate whether or not a currently homeless and delusional paranoid schizophrenic killed his psychiatrist in 2004, while a freshman in college, after his incriminating notes are discovered. Billy Lush (“The Black Donnellys) and Jacqueline Obradors (“NYPD Blue”) guest star as the paranoid schizophrenic and his slain psychiatrist.

That has what to do with John Lennon’s brilliant words? All I am saying is give Cold Case the ax! But for now all I can do is Imagine Sundays free of Cold Case.
I should also note, maybe I am little harsher on this show than I should be that but it is because I can’t get into the show cause I just don’t understand Kathryn Morris’ hair. It seriously mystifies me and distracts my attention for the show. Some buy her brush please.


After 45 years, Ringo Starr is done with autographs
October 13th, 2008 under The Beatles. [ Comments: 1 ]

Ringo Starr has made the above plea on his website asking his fans to stop sending him stuff to sign after October 20th because he will just throw it out because he is just too busy. Burying the message between him saying peace and love, peace and love. What is so peace and love about that?
Wonder why he picked such a random date to stop dealing with fan mail. Well I am to the post office with a bunch of him to sign before October 20th!
