The lovely Owen Harris brought me over from Chicago the box set of The Beatles in Mono. I have just started listening to it with the first album Please Please Me. How good or different can this stuff be? Well just coming to the end of the first album, I am already loving the investment I made in this box set. There is a clarity in these recordings which I have never heard before. How recordings which were made over 40 years ago can sound so beautiful, so clean and so interesting is beyond me. If you get the chance, I would highly recommend listening to these recordings, they remind you how special The Beatles were and how amazing their music is even today.
