Yeah Yeah Yeah!

It's about time. Apple (the Beatles' corporation, not the gazillion-dollar-making computer company) just announced that the Beatles' entire catalogue will be remastered and released on September 9.

This is great news for anyone who's been listening to the same Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road discs since 1987, when they were first issued on CD. That's right — the Beatles were released on CD at the dawn of that format's era and haven't been touched since.

All 12 albums will be released in stereo — which is also great news for fans, since the first four albums (Please Please Me, With the Beatles, A Hard Day's Night and Beatles for Sale) have been available in only mono for all these years.

Also, the two Past Masters volumes — which gathers singles and B-sides not available on the albums — will be combined into one remastered package. Each CD will include original album art plus new liner notes and photos. Initial pressings will also include a documentary DVD about the making of the album.

For purists, there'll be a Beatles in Mono box set released at the same time, which will include the albums in their original mono mixes (fans swear you can hear a difference).

You can read all about it here. —Michael Gallucci
