The Beatles to reissue remastered catalog
Fresh off a headline-grabbing reunion, The Beatles are set to become the remasters of their own domain, with Apple Corps and EMI Music today announcing plans to release a digitally retooled version of the Fab Four’s catalog.
The worldwide release is set for Sept. 9, not so coincidentally the same day The Beatles: Rock Band video game is slated to come out.
Those who were fans back in the British boys’ heyday will be happy to hear that each album will come ready-made for nostalgia. The CDs will feature the replicated original U.K. album art, expanded booklets with original and new liner notes and rare band photos. For early adopters, CDs will also be embedded for a limited time with a documentary about the album’s production. (more…)
