THE BEATLES GET BACK TO MONO - THE ORIGINAL MONO STUDIO ALBUMS REMASTERED AT ABBEY ROAD DIRECTLY FROM THE ANALOGUE MASTERS FOR VINYL RELEASE

The Beatles in mono:  This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format.  Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary.  

On September 8 (September 9 in North America), The Beatles’ nine U.K. albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork.  Newly mastered from the analogue master tapes, each album will be available both individually and within a lavish, limited 14-LP boxed edition, The Beatles In Mono, which also includes a 108-page hardbound book. 

ORDER THE BEATLES ON MONO AT THE OFFICIAL STORES OR AT YOUR LOCAL RETAILER:

RINGO:  "It's great to be here.  It's a wonderful to-do with music.  For me, that's my life.  At 13, I was ill, I was in hospital.  They gave me a little, teeny drum, and I only ever wanted to do that for the rest of my life.  And that's what's carrying on today, really, The Beatles' music is still out there and that's the thing I'm most proud of."

Ringo Starr, Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono accepted the award on behalf of The Beatles.
