The problem for me on this is that they are now at Pink Floyd levels of taking the piss for the pricing. I mean, the only reason I don't have the remaster of Sgt. Pepper is that they want £10-£15 more than everybody else for a 2 LP set.

Indeed. They have milked the living tits off it. 

I'm not buying any more Beatles reissues until they include the infamous recording of Lennon taking a noisy dump while whistling 'My old man's a dustman'. 

And it had better be stereo, or they can stick it.

My old vinyl album sounds fantastic, except for USSR which is bass light.

I have to be in the mood to enjoy the white album.

By far my favourite prefab four albums are during what I call their intermediate period, or between the mop top and hippy stage: Rubber Soul and Revolver.

Small backstory: Back in the 1970s a school mate loved The Beatles, so much so he compared every ruddy group to them. It was relentless. He banged on about them so much I was choked off them - it was close on five years where I never played any of the albums. His complete love of them became counter productive.

Universal Music Store is advertising the White Album for sale now.

https://store.udiscovermusic.com/artist.html?a=the_beatles

The CD Box Set is £120 Amazon is charging £140 at the moment but it will probably come down to £120 soon.

I don't like buying direct from Universal Music Store as they have really poor customer service.

Just over £20 an LP, about the going rate and I think might come down from that.

Just to clarify a few things, this isn't a remaster, it's a remix, same as what Giles did last year with Pepper. However the absolute GOLD is the Esher sessions are being made available as part of triple CD and quad LP set, and if you have £120 to splurge, there is a seven CD set, mostly of songs that are either unheard or are were previously only heard on dodgy bootlegs.

Purchased a couple of their albums when it was sold by publisher De Agostini. The sound quality is superb.
