Very tempting. I have Please Please Me, A Hard Days’s Night, With the Beatles, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album, Abbey Road, Let It Be and Past Masters in the earlier format, and I’m no audiophile. But the way music is distributed these days casts an aura of old skool cool on this CD box set.
Even more cool is The Beatles USB set.
The exquisitely crafted, apple-shaped USB drive is loaded with the critically acclaimed re-mastered audio for The Beatles’ 14 stereo titles, as well as all of the re-mastered CDs visual elements, including 13 mini-documentary films about the studio albums, replicated original UK album art, rare photos and expanded liner notes. A specially designed Flash interface has been installed, and the 16MB USB’s audio and visual contents will be provided in FLAC 44.1 Khz 24 bit and MP3 320 Kbps formats, fully compatible with PC and Mac.
