All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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.

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.
From the Publisher
The U.S. Albums , a new 13CD Beatles collection spanning 1964’s Meet The Beatles! to 1970’s Hey Jude, will be released January 20 (January 21 in North America) by Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol. 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 albums are presented in mono and stereo, with the exception of The Beatles’ Story and Hey Jude, which are in stereo only. Collected in a boxed set with faithfully replicated original LP artwork, including the albums’ inner sleeves, the 13 CDs are accompanied by a 64-page booklet with Beatles photos and promotional art from the time, as well as a new essay by American author and television executive Bill Flanagan. For a limited time, all of the albums (with the exception of The Beatles’ Story, an audio documentary album) will also be available for individual CD purchase. A Hard Day’s Night (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), The Beatles’ Story, Yesterday And Today, Hey Jude, and the U.S. version of Revolver make their CD debuts with these releases.

    It was 50 years ago today that four young lad from Liverpool, En

    It was 50 years ago today that four young lad from Liverpool, England first single "I Want to Hold Your Hand" made their first American single on the airwaves. Paul McCartney once said that we are not going to America till we had a number one hit. He was right. It went straight to number one on the Billboard top chart. Then on February 7, 1964, the Beatles arrived at the John F. Kennedy Airport. On February 9, 1964, more than 70 million viewers tuned into watch the Beatles make their American debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. This marked the beginning of Beatlemania. Fifty years later, Capitol/Apple/Universal has released the Beatles U.S. Albums and sounded much bigger, better, louder, and clearer. Some Beatles fans may be a bit disappointed because the entire 13 U.S. albums do not have the American sound version, but instead it has the 2009 remasters. Beatles fans who bought the Beatles Capitol Album Volume 1 & 2 may want to keep or trade it in. Back then, the American sound version was a lot different than the U.K. version both in stereo and mono. Despite of that, the U.K. version sound is much better, bigger, louder, and clearer than the American sound version. Here's to another 50 years of Beatlemania. We love the Beatles, oh yes we do. YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!
