After seeing release digitally and on CD, the Beatles' original studio album remasters will finally be pressed to wax, with vinyl versions slated for release on November 13th in North America.
All 14 albums – the 12 U.K. originals, the U.S.-originated Magical Mystery Tour and the B-sides and rarities collection Past Masters Volumes One & Two – will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and will include original features like the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band cutouts and a reproduction of the poster that accompanied "The White Album."
While each record will be available individually, a limited-edition box set (only 50,000 copies worldwide) will be available, which includes every album, plus a new hardbound book authored by radio producer Kevin Howlett. Filled with photographs from throughout the Beatles' career (many of which weren't seen in the 2009 CD edition), Howlett dedicates a chapter to each record, delving into the creation of the masters as well as how the new vinyl edition was prepared.
Beatles fans can also look out for the upcoming release of the restored version of the band's 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour, which will screen in select movie theaters today and will be averrable October 8th.
