The Beatles – The Beatles Stereo Box Set (2009) (Germany, EMI 5099996804520) [FLAC+CUE+LOG]

Released: 09 September 2009
Label: EMI/Capitol
Recorded: 1962–1970 at EMI, Trident, Olympic, Apple, De Lane Lea, Chappell and Regent Sound studios, London; Pathé Marconi Studio, Paris; EMI Studios, Bombay

The sixteen disc collection contains the remastered stereo versions of every album in the Beatles catalogue. The first four albums made their CD debut in stereo, though some songs have appeared on CD in stereo through various compilations. Both Help! and Rubber Soul use the 1987 remixes prepared by George Martin for the original CD releases (the original 1965 mixes were released on The Beatles in Mono). Magical Mystery Tour is presented in the sequence and artwork of its original North American album release, as opposed to the UK six-song EP. Yellow Submarine is presented in its original 1969 format instead of the 1999 Songtrack version.

All CDs replicate their original album labels as first released, from the various Parlophone Records variations, to the Capitol Records label (for Magical Mystery Tour) and the UK Apple Records side A label from Yellow Submarine through Let It Be, and with the side A & side B Apple labels for discs one & two respectively for The Beatles. For Past Masters, disc one uses a mid-1960s Parlophone label design and disc two uses the (side A) Apple label design. Each of the albums except Past Masters includes a mini-documentary, mainly drawing from The Beatles Anthology (with a few animated 3D scenarios made up of original photos thrown in), about the album in QuickTime format. The Beatles and Past Masters are two-disc sets.
