According to the blog, my vinyl review, vinyl lovers will have reason to celebrate later this year:
November 14, 2009 has been mentioned by an industry insider as the tentative release date for the remastered Beatles vinyl. The same insider also said that the releases would come out on Capitol Records and named R.T.I. as the pressing plant slated for the job. The suggested retail price will reportedly be approximately $25.00, and given that price, one can also easily speculate that the vinyl will be 180 grams.
There are some questions regarding whether the vinyl will be sourced directly from the analog tapes (unlikely) or from high resolution 24/192 digital masters sourced from the original analog tapes (more likely) or just from the digital masters used for the new CDs (that’s what EMI has been doing since 1987).
So which Beatles albums would you prefer to have on brand new, remastered vinyl?
