180g Triple Vinyl Mono LP!
All-Analog Remastered from the 1/4" Master Tapes at Abbey Road and Pressed at Optimal in Germany!

"For Beatles fans what could be more enjoyable than sitting down and listening to the singles as originally intended, (direct, sharp and juke-box bright on top) cut from analog tapes and sounding as fresh and new as if they were recorded yesterday? ...If ever there was a more powerful demonstration of analog's superiority, compare these 3 LPs with the double CD set in The Beatles in Mono CD box. The rich harmonica on the LP of the primitively recorded "From Me to You" sounds hard and annoying on CD. The reverberation that floats free and surrounds the instruments dries up and evaporates. The picture is flat and un-involving and on this CD when you play "I Call Your Name" and you scream out "MORE COWBELL PLEASE" you'll mean it. Just play that cowbell for anyone who will listen and then play the record. Game over!" - Michael Fremer,, Music 10/10, Sound 10/10!

An all-mono compilation titled Mono Masters is included as part of the Beatles In Mono series. Since the point of the series, and the box set, is to compile only Beatles material released or prepared with a dedicated mono mix, the tracklisting for Mono Masters differs from Past Masters omitting some songs that never had a mono mix and adding songs from stereo-only album that had unreleased mono mixes.

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 and newly mastered from the analogue master tapes.

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.
