At last, EMI and The Beatles website have announced that their back catalog has been remastered and will be released with fantastic album art, notes, and additional stereo and mono set packaging. The EMI CDs were early releases for the format and fans have hoped for years to see this essential collection of music receive its due attention. Beatles fans got a taste of what remastering may offer with the release of the Yellow Submarine soundtrack in 1999. Ten years later, we are bound to see some exciting results. No digital availability upadates at this point.
Official lead: Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music are delighted to announce the release of the original Beatles catalogue, which has been digitally re-mastered for the first time, for worldwide CD release on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 (9-9-09), the same date as the release of the widely anticipated "The Beatles: Rock Band" video game. Each of the CDs is packaged with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released.
