The Beatles in mono: This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format. Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary. The Beatles’ nine U.K. albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks are released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork. Newly mastered from the analogue master tapes, all 11 album are available in a lavish, limited 14-LP boxed edition, The Beatles In Mono, which also includes a 108-page hardbound book.

In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles’ acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Sean Magee and GRAMMY®-winning mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz. While The Beatles In Mono CD boxed set released in 2009 was created from digital remasters, for this new vinyl project, Magee and Berkowitz cut the records without using any digital technology. Instead, they employed the same procedures used in the 1960s, guided by the original albums and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers.

Working in the same room at Abbey Road where most of The Beatles’ albums were initially cut, the pair first dedicated weeks to concentrated listening, fastidiously comparing the master tapes with first pressings of the mono records made in the 1960s. Using a rigorously tested Studer A80 machine to play back the precious tapes, the new vinyl was cut on a 1980s-era VMS80 lathe.

Manufactured for the world at Optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles’ albums are presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging. The boxed collection’s exclusive 12-inch by 12-inch hardbound book features new essays and a detailed history of the mastering process by award-winning radio producer and author Kevin Howlett. The book is illustrated with many rare studio photos of The Beatles, fascinating archive documents, and articles and advertisements sourced from 1960s publications.

"The albums are presented…in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging. The 180 gram records, pressed at Optimal in Germany for world-wide distribution, were mastered at Abbey Road Studios using the original ¼" analogue master tapes played back on a mono headstock, preview-head equipped, Studer A80. No dynamic compression and minimal equalization will hopefully produce the best ever sounding Beatles reissues.

"The jackets look fantastic-nothing like the stereo box set's unreasonable facsimile. These are fold over laminated, with opaque paper on the back very close to the originals right down to the "Garrod and Lofthouse" printer credit. The reproduction of the artwork appears to be spot-on and though the video shows The Beatles jacket opening to the side, the actual jacket will be "top loading" just like the original...Steve Berkowitz said he took the records out of the shipping box and played them in Los Angeles and they were flat, shiny and dead silent and that they were. All LPs were pressed at Optimal for worldwide distribution. So based on how I know this was produced and on this look and listen I think we are in for a real musical and sonic treat next September!"
-Michael Fremer,

"But most of all, what makes these remasters special is the warmth of the vinyl… period details that evoke the same sensations as muscle cars or the swish of miniskirts in film clips of '60s street scenes - an intangible memory flash, a tantalizing tug of nostalgia that brings back the summer days when the high-pitched sound at the end of "Long Long Long" would wake up your childhood dog or the fade-out of "She Said She Said" reflexively told you it was time to get up and flip the album. These records bring an impressively (and affordably) vintage Beatles listening experience, even if you're using a Crosley rather than a 1960s-era Close 'N Play record player. At best, for younger fans it's a more authentic experience than the past couple of generations have had; for those longer in the tooth, it's like finding photos from your childhood that you'd never seen before."-NPR

"This was how The Beatles heard themselves, and what comes across strongly is the sense of indivisible unity they convey. Shortly after, stereo would usher in overdubbing and an emphasis on individual ability that tore groups apart. By contrast, this isn't just four gifted individuals you hear here, it's a band, and one heck of a great band, at that." -The Independent

"I found the collection oft revealing, and I was exposed to nooks and crannies lost or rendered muddy when compressed for FM radio broadcast or heard on those horrible first compact disc versions. On the proper gear and heard in an acoustically decent room or on noncrappy headphones, sounds pop and erupt from the mono albums with a force that suggests not just a hot band hitting its peak but a producer hitting his as well, both harnessing high-tech gear to great effect." -Los Angeles Times

"That in 2014 a major entertainment conglomerate released an all-analog, superbly packaged set of 14 LPs is, by any definition, miraculous... Meticulously mastered from the original master tapes by Sean Magee and Steve Berkowitz (tape copies were used for first LP and Mono Masters 2-LP compilation), and well pressed by Optimal, in Germany, the discs in this set are arguably the best-sounding mono Beatles albums ever released—and that includes the original pressings, which were bass-shy in order to be playable on that era's kiddie phonographs. At $328 including a hardcover book, it's a bargain that won't be around forever. " - Michael Fremer, 2015 Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For!
