I know what I want for Christmas this year:
There is no release date mentioned, however, whenever a new Beatles release is announced, it is usually no more than two or three months before it is released.
EDIT: Ok, as per the official Facebook post, the release date will be September 8 in the UK and September 9 in the US; exactly five years after this set was released on CD.

I don't understand how they can be cut directly from analogue tapes, not if they are going to be working on the same basis as the CDs - ie they are upgrading everything, fixing dropouts etc. Also, when they say that the sleeves are identical to the originals, will they include the fold-over edges? They didn't with the stereo albums, because they couldn't find a company that would do the work.
I bought both CD sets - Mono and Stereo - and I bought the stereo vinyl albums up to Pepper, plus the Past Masters double. I also bought the recent USA CD box, and the two previous Capitol boxes. I think they've had enough money from me, so I'm going to pass on these.
