Default Beatles Capitol Boxset avaliable to pre order

The infamous Capitol Beatles album boxset is now avaliable to pre order from amazon.com and play.com, for 37.99 including shipping.

Personally, I don't think I'll buy it...I'd rather have the 'proper' UK albums reissued. It does seem odd that this set is going to be issued in the UK!

When Neil Aspinall mentioned a while back about a major Beatles project for 2006, perhaps he was referring to the UK album reissues, following on from these US boxes? I hope so, but my bank balance doesen't!

I think this is good for all the American fans who grew up with those albums. We already have the U.K versions on cd (although reissued and remasterd verions would be nice) so this is great for all the completists out there. I personally like the U.K versions, because they were the way the Beatles planned it (mostly) themselves. But I'm not complaining, since I fall under the category of "insane Beatle completist"

I'm glad the US LP (hopefully with the proper to the US mixes, quite a few which duiffer to the 'proper' UK mixes) CDs are coming out.
What has to be understood is that due to publishing considerations of the era (BMI and ASCAP split royalties 10-12 ways per LP, any would only pay royalties forthe fiirst 12 songs per LP disc), you needed different compilations.
I've been waiting YEARS for these to come out!

well we in the US, have learned to love the UK cd's, that's how we bought the Beatles CD's when they were released UK only, so why not give our versions a listen at least, take them out from your library or something when they are released.

Heres a pic from Amazon.com (just search Beatles capitol albums)

I must say, while I'm still excited by the release the box art looks dissapointing...i guess i was expecting something better looking than a long box that looks like it was designed in ths 80's.
But I'll still be getting it:

Is this through Capitol? If so, they've been a bit lively in putting that one out...

Yeah, that's kind of illegal. For starters, it's Beatles VI, and why would they include The Beatles Second Album and Beatles '65 if they're in the first set?

I just saw that on the Capitol website they have clips from the set. Yes, these are the original American mixes. Here's the link http://www2.capitolrecords.com/beatles/sampler/

Also on Amazon they have a small (really small) pic of the box set open. I'm gonna be nice and post it here.

Like Dave, I am a "completist", and I need these ones (and one or two others) to complete my collection.... So, I am greatly looking forward to the release! I can't wait to go get my copy on the 16th! !
