Default The Beatles - Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band 5.1 Blu-ray Audio May 26

The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Blu-ray



Note - the Blu-ray is only available in the 6-disc set and is not being sold as a standalone SKU. I'm calling it a "Blu-ray Audio" even though there is no such format, just to clarify that indeed there is a 5.1 audio mix on the Blu-ray.

Wowza, Sgt. Peppers is truly getting the deluxe treatment for it's 50th anniversary!

This May sees several versions of Sgt. Peppers being released including 1CD, 2CD, 2LP, Digital and Super Deluxe 6 Disc set.

The Super Deluxe is obviously where the real goodies are! It features 1 CD for the stereo version of the album, expanded and remixed from the original tapes by Giles Martin and Sam O'Kell (because if you want the original stereo mix, buy the 2009 CD) including new stereo mixes of Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever, 2 CDs containing a shit load of unreleased studio takes, 1 CD for the album in mono including six extra tracks (among them a lost version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds) and a DVD and Blu-ray which each will contain fully restored video of "The Making of Sgt. Peppers" as well as new 5.1 and surround mixes of the album.

The DVD will of course feature standard def video and lossy surround while the Blu-ray will have lossless high res.

Quote:
This beautiful and comprehensive six-disc boxed set features:

CD 1:
New stereo album mix.

CDs 2 & 3:
33 additional recordings from the studio sessions, most previously unreleased and mixed for the first time from the four-track session tapes, sequenced in chronological order of their recording dates.
A new stereo mix of 'Penny Lane' and the 2015 stereo mix of 'Strawberry Fields Forever'.

CD 4:
Direct transfers of the album's original mono mix and the 'Strawberry Fields Forever' and 'Penny Lane' singles.
Capitol Records' U.S. promotional mono single mix of 'Penny Lane'.
Previously unreleased early mono mixes of 'She's Leaving Home, 'A Day In The Life,' and 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' (a mix thought to have been erased from a tape in 1967, but discovered during archive research for the anniversary edition).

Discs 5 & 6 (Blu-ray and DVD):
New 5.1 surround audio mixes of the album and 'Penny Lane' by Giles Martin and Sam Okell, plus their 2015 5.1 surround mix of 'Strawberry Fields Forever'.
High resolution audio versions of the new stereo mixes of the album and 'Penny Lane' and of the 2015 stereo mix of 'Strawberry Fields Forever'.
Video features: 4K restored original promotional films for 'Strawberry Fields Forever,' 'Penny Lane,' and 'A Day In The Life;' plus The Making of Sgt. Pepper, a restored, previously unreleased documentary film broadcast in 1992, featuring insightful interviews with McCartney, Harrison, and Starr, and in-studio footage introduced by George Martin.

At first I criticized this because it's already been remastered in both mono (in the mono boxed set) and stereo and because the tendency when they remix and remaster is to level compress the hell out of it (like they did for the original release of Beatles #1's) in order to make it sound louder, but after seeing what's in the Super deluxe set, I don't think I'm going to be able to resist, although $150 is way overpriced IMO.

And what's MOJO by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers if not Blu-ray audio?

Preordered. I will keep an eye and see if the price lowers.

Hopefully it goes under $100

If you pre-order from Amazon Italy it works out to EUR 94,42 shipped to the US, or approximately US$100.

MOJO is a Blu-ray Disc.

My point with that edit is that there is no "Blu-ray Audio" format, whether you include menu screens or just straight audio the format is still "Blu-ray Disc". I was just heading off at the pass someone saying "Blu-ray Audio isn't a format" in response to my thread title.

Also I got a tweet back from Sam Okell who is doing all the remixing with Giles, I had mentioned how reserved the 5.1 mixes on 1+ were and would Peppers be more adventurous (you know, like Love) and he responded, "Yes!"

Can't WAIT for this!!! If I have to shell out $150 (importcds.com will probably have it for considerably less), I will.

Day 1 purchase, no hesitation.

Sweet Strawberry Fields Batman! This looks fantastic! I'm not into music (I listen to it but it's not a passion like movies), but I do love some Beatles (who doesn't) and it's good to hear they're releasing a new version of Sgt Peppers. Ok it's a way of wringing some more money out of a band that hasn't released any new music for 40 years, but there's always new fans.

I'd like to get the deluxe set for the blu ray, but it's a bit too pricey, and a shame they don't release it as a standalone like they did with "1". So I'll likely just end up getting the CD. My audio set up isn't good enough to show any difference in sound anyway I'd imagine.

Particularly if you aren't going to listen in surround.

I wonder if the music videos for ADITL, SF, & PL will have the original mixes, which were not had on the 1+ blu ray set from last year (they had remixes only). Also: wonder why no uncompressed mono version on the blu ray disc.

All the anticipation aside let me be the first to say: I knew there'd be no Carnival of Light (nor Only aNorthern Song for that matter.)


I'm still In Like Flynn though.

I assume if you order from Italy everything will still be in English?

This Beatles release is a must for me , although I really do not want to pay more than a $100.00 for it . Will wait and see how much cheaper this one can get before purchasing .

Yes I agree. $150.00 is over priced. It will come down. I hope

Lol, as I'm listening to the song Magical Mystery Tour this thread pops up. Even though Magical Mystery Tour isn't on Sgt. Pepper. Just ironic

I've seen both 60 and 90-minute cuts of, "Making Of Sgt. Pepper." I wonder which will be included here?

I would be all over this if the Beatles had priced this at $100 suggested retail. It's very pricey at $150 and Beatles' music releases rarely get discounted beyond the standard 30% off.

Despite owning both the stereo and mono box sets, and the American versions box set, I will have to pass.

It would have been tougher for me to pass if this had been another Beatles' album. I burnt out on Sgt. Pepper's years ago.

I passed on the stereo/mono boxes, holding out for surround.

And now I either put up or shut up. Well not for list price, but I'll likely put up.

(Though what I'd really like is the white album, my favorite. Or Let It Be while they're at it.)

Bullmoose is taking preorders at $120 if that price is more palatable to anyone.

Preordered. Amz knocked $70 off because I applied for their Visa card and another $15 off because they're still honoring a 10% moving discount, even though I moved back in January. So I got the set for $78. Not cheap, but at half price I can't complain.
