I’ll pick it up when I can trade in the 4 copies of the album I already have!
it's 95.35 now..wow. I would prefer vinyl for this one I think.
I have to admit. When it hit that price...
I am so weak...
I had to hear those surround mixes and those acoustic demos. Hearing fresh versions of songs that have become such chestnuts---so familiar--is a particular treat to me.
Please...don't tell Peg.
I would really have enjoyed hearing Scott Atwell's review of this set.
And now I wait and see how much further it declines in price (or if it shoots back up).
Me too. I often think about him when visiting HTF.
Amazingly, I was able to cancel my order (it was "being prepared" for shipment)...and re-order at the $89.25 price.
Cool beans! And, thanks, David!
I wasn't planning on ordering it. I really want the Sgt. Pepper's set and can't justify both, but I couldn't resist the price. I'm glad I did. Amazon is now out of stock and it is only available through 3rd party sellers at much higher prices.
I won! I won!
You, too, David!
I think we both made out pretty good!
Back in stock via [email protected] $121.50
I bought the 2 CD set for about $20 many years ago.
Now it's only $14. http://www.amazon.com/White-Album-Beatles/dp/B0025KVLU6/
I just wrote a review of the just released 2CD archive editions of the Paul McCartney and Wings albums WIld Life and Red Rose Speedway. I didn't have access to the box sets of the two albums "at press time". Here's the link to the web review/article:
I got a chance to start listening to the white album box set and just the 5.1 mix on While My Guitar Gently Weeps made it worth the $100.
I just got around listening to my set the other day, too, Travis.
So far, I've only cracked open the Blu disc. I've made it through both sets of 5.1 mixes and the PCM stereo mix. Really cool. They all sound great--and in very different ways. I was surprised how different the two surround mixes sounded at times. There were a couple times I thought the vocals got lost in the surround mixes...but it is very possible that I need to revisit the way my receiver was processing the audio. And I also found that those same vocals were also a bit buried in the stereo mix (just a bit overwhelmed by the instrumentation going on around them) so it might have been intentional in the original mixes.
But what a lot of fun. The White Album is probably the Beatles album I spent the least amount of time with as a youngster. BUt what a cool listening experience. Just wish they weren't so expensive. But I get the value attached to such a large comprehensive package, too.
