    Tony: Still there when I clicked on the link just now. Now at £140.00.

  4. Tony says:

    Yes, I see it’s back again. It’s up at £120 on thebeatles.com so I hope Amazon are going to come into line

  5. Richard says:

    7 CDs edition currently at 117,00 € on amazon.fr – that makes less than 105.00 GBP

    No Deluxe Set listing on Amazon US yet — is this exclusively a European/UK release??

  9. piper909 says:

    I'll place a standing order from the UK but will cancel and shift to the US if this gets listed on Amazon(US) soon, at a better price (?)

    so we have 2 helter skelter versions here.
    the first is the same take from anthology (take 2), complete this time.
    the 27min version (take 3), which belongs to this session, is still not available.

    the second version (take 17) on this new release is from the remake session, when they decided that it was too slow and too long, so they played it faster, finishing the normal version on this session (take 4 to 21).

    so .. no 27min, but a "new" rare version from the remake session.
    i think it was a good decision.

    beside all of these new releases i'm thinking about the anthology cds, what will happen with it?
    it seems that it will be an obsolete release, because the extra cds (sgt pepper and white album) are including material from the anthology project.

    also, they are choosing in many cases, releasing rare takes already available as bootlegs, so they can stop them of being published by bootlegers, having this new official release as a digital source.
    same idea they did when they released the '63 rarities.

    It'll be available cheaper than 140 quid elsewhere, without a doubt.

    Where is Paul's version of 'Goodbye'and the 'Revolution 9' sound samples (EMI Test Tape, American Football etc)? And no 'Hey Jude' and 'Revolution' remixes? Knackers!

    • Unknown says:

      I totally agree. I would be nice to hear how Revolution 9 was constructed, especially the ad libbed spoken pieces by John and George. It would have great to hear those in full.

    There’s only one set. The standard English one. Never are the liner notes or anything translated to French. In France we have the booklets in English – Sgt Pepper or Past Masters back in 87-88, Live at the BBC, Anthology, Sgt Pepper Deluxe….
    Amazon.fr has THE one without any possible doubt.

  14. Martin says:

    £99.99 pre-order for the Super Deluxe from What Records….

  15. Andrew says:

    Would have liked to have seen the original demo for While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Unaltered, not butchered like it was for Anthology (and the "Sessions" mix).

  16. James Peet says:

    There are a few recordings that seem to have been missed off of the super-duper edition, such as the Anthology songs from this period not being selected but without the fakery that littered all three Anthology volumes.

    Take 1 of SFF was released last year but with the backing vocals that were missing on Anthology 2. Maybe they might have stopped trying to make "new" Beatles albums and concentrating on producing an 'archive ' project. We'll have to wait and see. I am disappointed that "Goodbye" isn't included. The 27 minute "Helter Skelter" seems destined to remain unreleased. "Revolution #9" would have been nice.

    Otherwise, it looks good. A pity about the pricing. I wouldn't worry though. The Super-Deluxe Sgt. Pepper still available and the Super-Deluxe White Album will be available well beyond 9 November.

  17. Martin says:

    I know it was recently bootlegged (in high quality), but isn't 'Revolution' Take 20 now going to be put out officially on this deluxe reissue? Also, why no trace whatsoever of 'Hey Jude' and 'Hey Bulldog'? As alternate takes and backing tracks of both do exist….

  18. piper909 says:

    Over 100 takes of "Not Guilty" and we ponly get one here? (plus maybe the demo) Not very much Hey Jude, either. Complain, complain, right?

    Anyway, Amazon US now has the big box listed — $179 today. I hope this drops some — seems like the UK price is better, even allowing for currency conversion and shipping.

  19. Martin says:

    What an absolute bargain. I'm in already….

    I must say the outtakes all look pretty ho hum surely another disc of outtakes would make up for mediocre tracks, Esher Demos big deal after listening to them for decades already. I guess I am spoilt from Bootlegs at least The Beatles get the money this time around .

  22. piper909 says:

    Boo! Obvious spamming above!

  23. Unknown says:

    Im not spam !

  24. Unknown says:

    So far in the last few weeks and mon t hs with Beatles and Solo Im close to 1000 Aust Dollars invested, Drop your prices for a little less profit Beatle Members and Families, How many millions do you need ? Just because you can sell them for so much doesn't meen you have too .

  25. Unknown says:

    Adding to above …. that is NEW product, ive spent tens apon tens apon ….. on this group , cut fans a little slack .

    Living in the material world, Imagine , theres two hypocritical songs there for the Beatles ro listen to themselves.

  26. maukel says:

  27. Unknown says:
