Beatles fans, dust off your record players. The band’s original studio album remasters, which were released on CD and iTunes to much fanfare in 2009 and 2010, have made their stereo vinyl debuts on 19th November in Malaysia as part of an elaborate box set. The Beatles individual vinyl can also be purchased at all retail outlets in the Klang Valley.
The titles include the band’s 12 original U.K. studio albums, as well as the U.S. version of “Magical Mystery Tour,” and “Past Masters, Volumes One & Two.” The Beatles’ first four albums have never been released in North America in stereo on vinyl.
Each 180-gram album will be available for individual purchase, or fans can own one of 50,000 copies of the box set, which will be housed in a retro travel case and include a 252-page book by radio producer Kevin Howlett. There will be chapters dedicated for each album, plus rare photos and audiophile-geared details about how the vinyl records were prepared.
The stereo albums’ titles are as follows:
- Please Please Me
- With The Beatles
- A Hard Day’s Night
- Beatles For Sale
- Rubber Soul
- Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Magical Mystery Tour
- The Beatles (White Album)
- Yellow Submarine
- Abbey Road
- Let It Be
- Past Masters, Volumes One & Two
