I too ordered the the new 2014 US CD set from Amazon, since I found a great price of $96 with free shipping, last week.
Then I started reading the reviews, and thought I just paid too much for some nice mini LP artwork, 'cause that is basically all you are getting here that is new.
As much as people complain about the 2004-06 Capital CD set, at least they are the real thing, not the UK mix, like this new set.
Thankfully 24 hours later, when I came to my senses, I cancelled my Amazon order without a hitch.
My personal take on it is, if you already have the 2004-06 Capital set, don't bother, just buy the individual ones to complete your set.
If your contemplating buying this set, but really want the true Capital sound, get the 2004-06 set, and buy the individual albums that are missing. You can even buy "The Beatles Story" on Ebay
, since that is the only one you can't buy individually from the 2014 set.
If you've already purchased the 2014 set, then just enjoy it for what it is!
