The albums are presented in mono and stereo, with the exception of The Beatles’ Story and Hey Jude, which are in stereo only. By the end of 1963, before The Beatles’ American arrival, “Beatlemania” had already sprung forth across the Atlantic to take root in the U.S. In early January 1964, Vee-Jay reissued "Please Please Me" (with B-side "From Me To You"), and Swan reissued “She Loves You.”  The Beatles’ first Capitol album, Meet The Beatles!, followed on January 20.
The excitement of The Beatles’ February 7 arrival in New York, where they were met by an estimated 3,000 ecstatic fans at the airport, was documented by the world’s leading media outlets, beamed around the world in a blitz of news bulletins and photos.
After captivating North America with their Ed Sullivan debut, The Beatles traveled to Washington, DC, performing their first Stateside concert on February 11 at the Washington Coliseum to 8,000 fans in the round.
The thing is, why should people pay a lot of money for something promised to be authentic, when it isn't the real deal as it used to be in the 60's? Why release a product that is marketed as "the authentic American sound" when that very sound has been replaced? McCartney is listed in Guinness World Records as the most successful musician and composer in popular music history, with 60 gold discs and sales of 100 million singles. Following the death of his first wife Linda in 1998, McCartney married Heather Mills in 2002. After former drummer Pete Best was kicked out of the band, Ringo Starr was brought in to replace him. When Beatles manager Brian Epstein died of a drug overdose, McCartney urged the band to stay together, while the other three members were ready to quit. Unfortunately, The Beatles had some creative differences, and Paul announced they had officially broken up on April 10, 1970. McCartney's first solo album was developed during the breakup of The Beatles and was released in April 1970 about a month before the release of Let It Be. After former band mate John Lennon was murdered, Paul McCartney and Wings stopped touring, causing the breakup of the band. During the second half of the decade, Paul released five albums, including Flowers in the Dirt and Press to Play. McCartney is listed in The Guinness Book Of Records as the most successful musician and composer in popular music history, with sales of 100 million singles and 60 gold discs. McCartney's concert in St Petersburg, Russia was his 3,000th concert and took place in front of 60,000 fans in Russia, on 20 June 2004. Millions watched the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show, yet only six weeks before virtually no one in America had heard of the Beatles. With the help of a 15-year-old girl, a television news anchor who wanted to cheer up the country after the tragedy of JFK’s assassination, an American record executive who decided to sign the Beatles after his own company had rejected them four times and a host of astonishing coincidences, the British Invasion captivated the nation and the Beatles became the biggest selling band of all time in the United States. On October 31, 1963, Ed Sullivan happened to be at Heathrow Airport in London when the Beatles returned from a tour in Germany.
On November 16, 1963, the London bureau of CBS News interviewed the Beatles and filmed a concert. On December 10, CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite felt that a nation recovering from the tragedy might be warmed by a light-hearted story about some long-haired musicians from England. Marsha Albert, 15, of Silver Spring, Maryland, saw the broadcast and sent a letter to Washington radio disc jockey Carroll James.
Carroll invited the teenager to the WWDC radio studios to introduce “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and the American premiere of Beatles music occurred on December 17, 1963. Two days later, executives at Capitol Records in Los Angeles discovered that a major Washington radio station was giving very heavy airplay to an imported copy of a record not due for release for another month.
The incredible reaction in Washington to the single caused Capital Record President Livingston to make a radical decision – rush the release of the single.
It took only two weeks for record sales to top one million and the single was listed at the top of the American charts. The Ed Sullivan show received 50,000 requests for tickets for the Beatles’ February 9, 1964 show.
More than just a Beatles tribute concert, "In My Life" gives the audience a chance to “be there” at pivotal moments in the extraordinary career of the Beatles - from Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club, to the Ed Sullivan Show, Shea Stadium’s 50,000 + screaming fans and their final live performance on the rooftop of their Apple Corp offices.
As part of the facility’s first redesign in 15 years, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has unveiled its expanded Beatles exhibit. News, reviews, nuggets and tidbits from the local arts scene, including literature, theater, classical music, opera, dance and the visual arts.


Kennedy Airport, greeted by scores of screaming, swooning fans who rushed the gate to catch a glimpse of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they took their first steps on American soil.
They are using the Capitol masters for the unique mixes, but for where there is overlap, they're going to dip into the remastered catalog, which is a GOOD thing.
In 1955, when Paul was only fourteen years old, his mother, Mary McCartney, died of breast cancer. He has stated that Little Richard was his idol when he was in school and that the first song he ever sang in public was "Long Tall Sally," at a Butlins holiday camp talent competition. The band had been wanting to disband since the death of their manager, Brian Epstein, but McCartney had kept them together. Paul and Ringo are both left-handed, though Ringo became ambidextrous after his grandmother constantly nagged him to write with his right hand. They were eating a lamb meal, and saw a lamb in the field, and that's how the whole vegetarian thing came about. The album is notable for the fact that McCartney performed all instruments and vocals besides some backing vocals performed by his wife, Linda.
Soon after, Paul sang, along with Ringo Starr, backup on "All Those Years Ago," George Harrison's tribute to John Lennon.
McCartney has achieved twenty-nine number-one singles in the US, twenty of them with The Beatles, the rest with Wings and as a solo artiste. Over his career, McCartney has played 2,523 gigs with The Beatles, 140 with Wings, and 325 as a solo artist.
When he saw the enormous crowd of hysterical teenagers, Sullivan thought the Royal Family must be arriving. Beatles manager Brian Epstein phoned Alan Livingston, the President of the American division of Capitol Records, and asked why the label kept rejecting his group.
The film was flown to New York to be run on the CBS Evening News in America on November 22 – the very same day that President Kennedy would be assassinated. She asked : “Why can’t we have music like that here in America?” James had never heard of the Beatles but arranged for an airline stewardess to bring him a copy of a Beatles record.
Worried that this would damage its carefully timed game plan, record company lawyers threatened to sue the radio station. Capital Records distributed millions of stickers announcing that “The Beatles Are Coming!” For the next three weeks, Beatlemania erupted in the U.S. The Beatles became the best-selling musical group of all time, estimated to have sold over one billion discs and tapes worldwide.  They had 20 number one hits in the United States. The nationally touring musical is widely considered by industry insiders to be the most unique Beatles show in decades.
With manager Brian Epstein serving as Narrator, "In My Life" allows the audience to get a glimpse inside the world of the Beatles from their point of view, as well as hear some of the greatest songs ever written. Progressing through their various musical stages, the audience re-experiences the psychedelic era of Sgt.

Why to to the trouble to remaster something that is ultimately going to be completely identical?
Wings' 1977 single "Mull of Kintyre" became the first single to sell more than two million copies in the UK, and remains the UK's top selling non-charity single. After passing his 11-Plus exam in 1953, Paul enrolled in the Liverpool Institute, where he met future band mate, George Harrison, in 1954. McCartney was very interested in music due to the influence of his father, who was once a jazz musician. During the break-up times, Paul would try his best to get them back to what they were in 1962–66, but other band mates found it annoying and quit. All of Paul and Linda's kids are vegetarians, although Paul's son, James, is technically a vegan (because he doesn't drink milk).
McCartney has been involved in more number-one singles in the United Kingdom than any other artist under a variety of credits, although Elvis Presley has achieved more as a solo artiste. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" with U2 at Live 8 was released only 45 minutes after it was performed, before the end of the concert. How did they make this transition from complete unknowns to superstars in such a short period of time?


Livingston had never heard of the band because a subordinate had declined Epstein’s submissions on four occasions. Normal programming was suspended and the film can containing the Beatles segment was put away. Listeners bombarded Washington record stores with requests for a record and band that none of the stores’ employees had even heard of. Four of their albums are listed on Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 10 Greatest Albums of All Time, and three of the Top Five. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the creation of the haunting Yesterday and the raucous rock and roll of Revolution.
Replacing them with 2009 masters would be fine if you put BOTH versions in the box set, but to re-write history by replacing the original versions is simply fraud.
Why are they putting this out, and not just a "Volume 3" for the albums they missed?
Paul and Ringo were both vegetarian, but for different reasons; Paul ethical and Ringo medical. Through 1975 and 1976, Wings embarked on the ambitious Wings Over the World tour, which was released as Wings Over America. Criticisms include comments of overly melodic tunes and overly optimistic cheerful sentiments.
McCartney has achieved 24 number-ones in the UK: solo (1), Wings (1), with Stevie Wonder (1), Ferry Aid (1), Band Aid (1), Band Aid 20 (1) and The Beatles (17). The single reached number six on the Billboard charts, just hours after the single's release, and hit number one on numerous online download charts across the world. 1 position for seven consecutive weeks, and within two months, more than 3.5 million copies of Meet The Beatles! As a performer or songwriter, McCartney was responsible for 32 number one singles on the U.S.
McCartney practices meditation, using the mantra that the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi gave him when The Beatles went to a TM seminar in 1967.
However, Ram has proven to be a sweet gem of an album which becomes increasingly charming as time passes and the music world evolves.
McCartney is the only artiste to reach the UK number one as a soloist ("Pipes of Peace"), duo ("Ebony and Ivory" with Stevie Wonder), trio ("Mull of Kintyre", Wings), quartet ("She Loves You", The Beatles), quintet ("Get Back", The Beatles with Billy Preston) and as part of a musical ensemble for charity (Ferry Aid). McCartney played for the largest stadium audience in history when 184,000 people paid to see him perform at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 21 April 1990. Because of the promotional opportunity of three Ed Sullivan show appearances, Livingston decided to commit an enormous budget of $40,000 to launch the group. McCartney is an advocate for animal rights, vegetarianism, and music education; he is active in campaigns against landmines, seal hunting, and Third World debt. The day McCartney flew into the former Soviet country, he celebrated his 62nd birthday, and after the concert, according to RIA Novosti news agency, he received a phone call from a fan; then-President Vladimir Putin, who telephoned him after the concert to wish him a happy birthday. By midday, three of the most influential radio stations (WMCA, WABC and WINS) are playing the record as incessantly as the Washington station.
McCartney is one of Britain's wealthiest men, with an estimated fortune of ?750 million ($1.2 billion) in 2009. ALSO, I have a gripe with this little releasing an album of rarities for a limited time on iTunes ONLY - what nonsense!!
The song "Too Many People" was (wrongly) received as a jab at The Beatles and particularly John Lennon. The song prompted negative remarks from Lennon and it is rumoured that Lennon's song "How Do You Sleep" was produced in response to McCartney's comments in music and the press.
EMI was very often not satisfying and unlogical when it came to re-packageing, compiling, remastering and re-releasing new or old Beatles albums, so a lot of bootleggers made a lot of money for fulfilling the demands of the Beatles' main customers which grew up with their product and passed it on in this way to at least three other generations of fans. I'm also an avid collector and a big fan of the US-LPs and want all of them in their original form on CD, otherwise this set is not worth the money or it's historical content!
