The Beatles 1967-1970 The Blue Album
About this deal
Overall, this is a great sounding box. Maybe the 1980 box will sound better, but it doesn’t have these great covers so I guess nobody wins. I highly recommend this box to anyone who does not have any stereo pressings. Let it Be was a -3U/-4, and sounded decent. It’s hard to beat the original -2U/-2U, because its a masterpiece. You just need to be precise with this fantastic album. The MFSL messed it up but did bring out the drums very well. I’ll take the original though. Vote up content that is on-topic, within the rules/guidelines, and will likely stay relevant long-term.

Comes in a blue imitation leather-cardboard box with golden etched letters containing the 13 original LPs: Larkin, Colin (2007). The Encyclopedia of Popular Music (4thed.). Oxford University Press. ISBN 978-0195313734. A Hard Day’s Night was a -2/-3 cutting. Side 1 was basically the -1 but with a 2 stamped over it. I am not a fan of the -1/-1 original of A Hard Day’s Night, so side 1 was too hot and was sibilant heavy. Side 2 was a complete 180. It sounded FANTASTIC! Smooth, clear and uncongested. Would take this over the original and the MFSL.Beatles for Sale was a -3/-4, and sounded really good. I do like the -1/-1 original better, but not by much. I think both are on par with each other. The -3 side A slightly lowered Ringo’s snare, but did offer a pleasant midrange. MFSL brightened the hell out of the album, so the original wins

In the US, the album sold 1,294,896 LPs by 31 December 1973 and 5,850,026 LPs by the end of the decade. The widespread belief that the boys' song-writing got better in the latter half the 60s rings quite true, as there is an abundance of bona-fide classic songs here - far too many to list all the highlights - but "Penny Lane", "Revolution", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "The Ballad of John and Yoko", "Come Together", "Something", "Let It Be", and (perhaps the most fitting closer ever to an album) "The Long and Winding Road" are eternal favourites.
