Anyone here following the Hoffman Music Forum thread on the Sgt. Pepper 50th anniversary edition? It's nearing 300 pages and 7,500 replies!!!
AND... it looks like the May release will be a SIX-CD set. Holy-gamoly!

With the remastering jobs in recent Beatles CD box sets, I would not buy any subsequent collection without listening first.
This is the case for any classic recordings. Too much reprocessing of the audio and sample rate conversion for my liking.
Why six discs for a record that was recorded on two track tape (I think)?
6 CDs of Sgt. Pepper? Do we get to hear every squeak of the drum kit?
Every screech of a guitar amp? The constant whirring of the tape
machine? The farts of the recording engineer?
I can hardly wait!!
This is such an important Rock album by the only band that matters.
It deserves a 50th special edition for certain.
Music Direct says that included in the set are unreleased complete alternative versions of all thirteen songs. Ouch! Oowie-owie! Never seen those on any of the Beatles bootlegs I have. Bastards. Is it worth $70 for one Beatles bootleg? That's a very hard call.
It's all 16/44 and a 5.1 version. Bastards can't even throw us a 24/96 bone. It makes want to buy it, rip it, resell it at a loss, so the next guy can do the same, then I should sell that damn 24/44 USB collected works set I bought too. It's probably wrong, but I'm just turning it around on those snakes. Sir McCartney should have never married that gold digger, or he should have been smart enough to get a pre-nup. Ugh.
Big speakers and little amps blew my mind!

The only band that matters? Are you kidding me?
I point to every good blues band ever... as the only band that matters.
I point to the Berlin Philharmonic as the only band that matters.
Led Zeppelin is another "the only band that matters"
The Sugar Hill Gang is the only band that matters...
I've recently found out that The Stooges are also the only band that matters..
Come on now. Use the proper phrase. "The Beatles are the only band that matters to me." No one can argue that, and anyone that does can go fuck himself.
I could go on, but comeone
" ... the only band that matters"?
Perhaps you have not heard of The Rolling Stones? Or several other
bands that emerged in the same era? Or individuals, such as the
recently departed Chuck Berry?
But strong statements like yours are necessary to incite discussion ...
he taught the band to play!
How time flies. ;^)
