You can't buy Past Masters separately? That sucks, I really don't need Vol. 1.

And it still doesn't add up to the $199 sale price that seems to be prevalent. You should be saving money by getting a set, not spending more or the same amount.

Wait, did you include Yellow Submarine in your calculations?

Please Please Me, With The Beatles, A Hard Day's Night, Beatles For Sale, Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road, and Let It Be = 12 * $13 = $156.

White Album and Past Masters = 2 * $17 = $34.

$156 + $34 = $190.

Only a $10 difference, and that's for the case, I guess.

It also depends on how badly you want the first few LPs. I don't see the sound change in everything pre-Rubber Soul being anything too revolutionary. Sure, it's going to sound better. But coupled with how (in)frequently I spin those, it's not worth the upgrade. That's just me though.

And Past Masters only being in the box sucks, if indeed it's true.

And according to Amazon.com, the mini-documentaries are in the box as well.

I agree. I don't turn that stuff off if it's on the radio, but I can't say I crave listening to it. It's sophisticated bubble gum, but bubble gum nonetheless.

At some point I would probably pick up Help and Beatles For Sale, though.

Well obviously they're in the box. The question was whether or not they would be on the discs if you bought them separately.

He meant that you can't buy either version of Past Masters separately, but you can buy the two volumes together bundled for $17, outside the box.

No, they're available separate from the box, but not from each other. Vols. 1 and 2 are packaged together.

I don't need to have the German versions of early songs in my permanent collection, thank you.

Ah, my mistake. That's worth the price tag though. Obviously volume two is vastly superior, but $17 isn't bad for so many tracks. I adore some of those early singles.

Just pretend you're paying $13 for Vol. 2 and getting Vol. 1 as a bonus for the low low price of $4.

Yeah, that's how I'm going to have to fool myself.

For real, though, as far as having the most quality tunes are concerned, I'd put PM Vol.2 above Let It Be, Rubber Soul, and I know this is blasphemous, but Sgt. Peppers and Abbey Road as well.

That disc gets a LOT of rotations here.

I disagree with PM2 being better than Sgt. Pepper's, but I could understand why some would prefer it. I think Abbey Road, however, is quite possibly the band's greatest achievement.

Come Together
Something
Octopus's Garden
I Want You(She's So Heavy)
Here Comes The Sun
Because
You Never Give Me Your Money->The End medley

I've typed it numerous times on this site but, yes, Abbey Road is their greatest achievement. In my humblest of opinions.

I'll still take Rubber Soul, but I can't disagree all that strongly.
