Beatles vinyl box set disappointed
I received this as a gift.It was boxed perfectly in what appears to be the original shipping carton. No external damage. The box itself, album sleeves and book are excellent.Unfortunately several of the albums have serious noise issues. Specifically, the lead in bands to sides one and two of Sgt Pepper's have swishing noises that actually sound like they were intentional ocean sound effects.Side one of Rubber soul has the same thing. There are numerous static and popping noises that my 35 year old records don't have.I didn't even bother to listen to each album. A quick internet search shows there are apparently very serious quality control issues with this product. I am returning mine and will not be purchasing another unless these defects are addressed by Capitol/EMI. The remastering sounds very good but I cannot recommend this product at this time.
