Oh my gosh..... once again...... I couldn't believe my eyes when I held it on my hands, then I couldn't believe my ears when I heard it, later on, I caught myself crying again after seeing this incredible footage (I am crying a lot, aren't I? ) This BOX is simply everything any Beatle fan ever dreamed of, first, the CD..... ah this CD, do you guys remember when Toshiba Japan first acquired the rights to release ABBEY ROAD in Japan in 1983? Yes, they got it and really
released it in traditional fantastic Japanese quality there in 1983, then for legal reasons (Our dear old Apple again)Apple made them withdraw this gem from the market (along with a few others already released), so that Apple could re-release that CRAP in 1987. Anyways, you might ask ; ''well what's the big deal with this CD then?'' Then I respond, gladly, ''Guys, this is the ONLY other CD taken from the MASTER TAPES on the ABBEY ROAD album, BUT, with the great advantage that this sounds incredible, soooooooooooooo much better than the official release!'' Then again you ask, but what about the Dr.Ebbetts release, isn't that the best one? So I answer you ; ''Ebbetts release is GREAT, but it was taken from the original 1969 LP, whereas this one was taken directly from the MASTER TAPES by those same Japanese
geniouses that make wonders with the sound, so, it is more or less like If Ebbetts had gotten ahold of the Master Tapes and could finally remaster it onto CD format, with that quality we all learned to know and love!'' in a nutshell, this CD is simply unbeatable, you can turn the volume up and hear no distortion whatsoever! Amazing.... Now for the other CDs, have you ever heard of the ABBEY ROAD VIDEO SHOW from 1983? Yeah, we all did, and, maybe you are familiar with that release of this show, in bootleg form some years ago, well, this is NOT that, this is an ultra rare Birthday release from the MASTER TAPES from that show, complete for the first time with narrations, everything in 2 CDs for you to enjoy the BEST out of it! The DVD is simply out of this world, ultra rare, with dozens of never seen before footage of the ABBEY ROAD ERA, really, 39 chapters, 2 hours long, remastered, who could ask for more? Only ABBEY ROAD ERA
material, nothing from here is on Anthology, this is a real rare gem..... the book is also superb, comes fully illustrated with exclusive Paul, John, Ringo & George's interviews about the Abbey Road album, not seen anywhere else. The photos here are rare pics never seen before, beautiful, amazing, they'll take your breath away, plus a beatiful poster of one of the most beautiful Beatle pictures ever, in my opinion!
