MOJO Magazine talked to Jeff Jones, Chief Executive of Apple Corps., who confirmed that the Beatles’ remastered catalogue will be reissued on vinyl:
Speaking exclusively to MOJO, Jones revealed that work on the next stage of the Beatles Remastered campaign is currently underway: “We’re working on them now,” said Jones, “I don’t have a release date. To put a release date next to them forces us into a situation where we’re releasing something that might not be ready. “
The vinyl remasters will follow this year’s stunning Mono and Stereo CD reissues, with the engineers at Abbey Road and Apple already hard at work: “They are incredibly complicated in terms of getting the masters right and getting the packages right,” added Jones. “How do you assemble them? How do you put them in a box? How much do they cost? We want to make sure we’re doing it right and that people get real value from it.”
Pretty exciting news for vinyl loving audiophiles who can’t afford to seek out original tube cut U.K. Apple first pressings.
