Red and Blue Albums Remastered
The September 2009 release of The Beatles’ remastered original albums and new boxed collections in stereo and mono was one of the year’s top entertainment events, breaking chart records around the world. Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music are pleased to announce that The Beatles’ original 1973 compilations, 1962-1966 (‘Red’) and 1967-1970 (‘Blue’) have been digitally remastered for worldwide CD release on October 18 (October 19 in North America). Both 2CD packages include expanded booklets with original liner notes, newly written essays by Bill Flanagan, and rare photos.
The first Beatles compilations to be released after the band’s 1970 disbandment, the popular ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ collections each feature a selection of singles and album tracks written by the band’s members.
‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ have been remastered by the same dedicated team of engineers at EMI Music’s Abbey Road Studios responsible for remastering The Beatles’ original UK studio albums, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.

“Yeah, that's cool and all, but I have those songs already.
Why don't release a "The best solo songs of The Beatles"? I would buy a CD with "Imagine", "Live and Let Die", My Sweet Lord" and "It Don't Come Easy".
Wait, does anybody from Apple Corps actually read what we say? I am not being sarcastic, I really would like to know that.”

“This is a total waste of money, time and work. If they released a Hollywood Bowl or Shea Stadium or Let It Be DVD, I would buy it but another compilation? I think this is only for people who couldn't afford the 09.09.09 remasters.”

“It might sound crazy, but how about make a DVD of each Beatles era in... kinda ToyStory animated format??????Cuz I heard that Apple is working on the releases of more Beatles products.
In this way they would be able to introduce The Beatles to Young people, well is about to expand The Beatles Venues. I have seen Beatles chewing gum, why not have a Beatles Computer animated series?”

“Ok ! Well done ... These compilations were my presents in 1973 for my eleventh birthday (still own them) and I bought the cd versions in 1993 . I can't resist ! I order the remasters . Does it make sense ? Well , for my Beatles collection allright ...”

“Looking forward to these releases for the extra photos and liner notes. And of course hearing the music remastered.”

“Wait - didn't they already remaster all the songs on the other albums?”

“Well its not unwelcome but as stated by other sibscribers there is still so much more that Apple could be releasing and none of us are getting any younger! Firstly DVD versions of these albums would be great. Yes I know we have the Anthology but many of the songs are interupted and incomplete and to have just a video jukebox of Beatles hits would be great. We also need restored DVD releases of Magical Mystery Tour and Let it Be. A CD release of Hollywood Bowl is long overdue and surely a CD of all of the XMAS messages could be released and a further CD of BBC recordings would be good. And perhaps for the 50th anniversary of signing with EMI we could have a new hits compliation; how about a 50 track "Beatles 50" but with the songs remastered in 5.1 as in Love and the Anthology DVD's? Is that enough to be going on with?”
