“The Beatles in Glorious, Non-Lifelike Monaural,” listed on Amazon at $374.98.
Dear Millennials and aging Baby Boomers with too much money: Just say no.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a big fan of vinyl and have several thousand discs that I bought years ago (yes, including those Beatles LPs and even some of the lo-fi bootlegs). This isn’t about achieving some sort of audio “purity.” It’s merely an attempt to squeeze some more money out of the Beatles catalog.
Perhaps you would like to read Robert Hilburn’s 1987 piece on why “Sgt. Pepper” is full of mediocre songs. (I don’t happen to agree, but you would never see an article like this today).
