Album Notes
Liner Note Author: Bill Flanagan.Photographers: Joe Covello; Robert Freeman; Bob Bonis.Back in 2004, Apple/Capitol released The Capitol Albums, Vol. 1, a four-disc box that issued the Beatles' original U.S. albums from 1964 (Meet the Beatles!, The Beatles' Second Album, Something New, Beatles '65) on CD for the first time ever. A second volume, released roughly 18 months later, collected the 1965 records (The Early Beatles, Beatles VI, Help!, Rubber Soul), but a third volume rounding up the rest of the U.S.-exclusive albums -- Yesterday...and Today and Revolver, both from 1966, plus the odd 1970 compilation Hey Jude -- never materialized. Three years after The Capitol Albums, Vol. 2, a lavish reissue campaign of superb remasters of the Beatles' U.K. catalog appeared, the first true sonic upgrade to the Beatles' catalog since their initial release in 1987 -- remasters that easily overshadowed the somewhat better sound on the Capitol Albums boxes. The 2009 remasters were a rousing success, especially the Beatles in Mono box, which offered mini-LP replicas of every mono album from the Fabs, and that opened the door for the 2014 release of The U.S. Albums, a 13-disc box that has mini-LP replicas of all eight albums that appeared on the 2004 and 2006 boxes, plus the three aforementioned stragglers and two 1964 oddities: the United Artists release of the soundtrack for A Hard Day's Night and the pseudo-documentary LP The Beatles Story. Here's where things get interesting for trainspotters. Apart from The Beatles' Story, which has been drawn from existing masters in the vaults, nearly everything here has been brought up to the 2009 standards, usually using those celebrated remasters instead of the cavernous echo that characterized the Americanized albums shepherded by Capitol exec Dave Dexter. Fun, interesting alternates remain -- notably the botched intro to "I'm Looking Through You" on the stereo mix of Rubber Soul -- but the terrible fake stereo mixes that characterized the original U.S. releases and were indeed preserved in the Capitol Albums box sets have been replaced with tapes that sound excellent. This may not pull on the heartstrings for nostalgic baby boomers -- they'll have to settle for the set's exquisite packaging, including a Yesterday...and Today with a peel-away cover that reveals the original butcher cover -- in the way that the Dexter-ized mixes would have, but it's hard to argue against the use of the 2009 remasters, as this is the best the Beatles have ever sounded. And not only does this sound good, it looks good, so it's a handsome way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania, although anybody who owns the 2009 boxes in addition to the 2004 and 2006 sets may find it hard to justify another purchase. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The Beatles invade the USA 50 years later!

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 09/01/14
On February 7, 1964, The Beatles arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, greeted by scores of screaming, swooning fans who rushed the gate to catch a glimpse of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they took their first steps on American soil. Two nights later, on Sunday, February 9, 73 million viewers in the U.S. and millions more in Canada tuned in to CBS to watch The Beatles make their American television debut on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’ In what remains one of the world’s top-viewed television events of all time, The Beatles performed five songs on the live broadcast and ‘Beatlemania,’ already in full, feverish bloom in The Beatles’ native U.K., was unleashed with blissful fervor across America and around the world. The British Invasion had begun. The new 13 CD box set THE U.S. ALBUMS commemorates the 50th anniversary of these history-making events, spanning 1964’s MEET THE BEATLES! to 1970’s HEY JUDE. The Beatles’ U.S. albums differed from the band’s U.K. albums in a variety of ways, including different track lists, song mixes, album titles, and art. The box set includes the following titles: (Disc 1) MEET THE BEATLES!, (Disc 2) THE BEATLES’ SECOND ALBUM, (Disc 3) A HARD DAY’S NIGHT [ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK], (Disc 4) SOMETHING NEW, (Disc 5) THE BEATLES’ STORY, (Disc 6) BEATLES ’65, (Disc 7) THE EARLY BEATLES, (Disc 8) BEATLES VI, (Disc 9) HELP! [ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK] , (Disc 10) RUBBER SOUL, (Disc 11) YESTERDAY AND TODAY, (Disc 12) REVOLVER, (Disc 13) HEY JUDE. These albums were originally issued between 1964 and 1970 by Capitol Records, Apple Records, and United Artists in the United States. These new releases seek to replicate the unique listening experience heard by Americans at the time by preserving the sequences, timings, and artwork found on the albums. Capitol’s engineers in the 1960s took great care to produce what they believed to be the best possible sound for the playback equipment in use at that time. Due to the limitations of the record players of the day, engineers often compressed the sound by raising the volume of the softer passages and lowering the volume for the louder parts of the songs. They also reduced the bass frequencies since too much bass could cause the record to skip. In some cases, reverb was added to the tracks to make them sound more “American.” The CDs are packaged in miniature vinyl sleeves that faithfully recreate the original U.S. LP releases down to the finest detail, including the inner sleeves. 11 original U.S. albums presented in both mono and stereo. Hey Jude and The Beatles’ Story are in stereo only. A Hard Day’s Night [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack], The Beatles’ Story, Yesterday And Today, Hey Jude and the U.S. version of Revolver are presented on CD for the first time. Yesterday And Today features the original album cover of The Beatles posing with raw meat and baby dolls. The package also comes with a collectible sticker of the subsequent Yesterday And Today cover art. Also included is a 64-page booklet which includes a new essay examining the U.S. albums and their historical significance, written by American author and television executive Bill Flanagan.
