WHERE ARE THE BEATLES REISSUES?

Enterprising Fans Take Matters Into Their Own Hands

In an era of declining music sales and rapid technological advancement, it’s still hard to fathom the sorry lot of the Beatles canon.
Not only is the catalog of rock music’s most successful and influential act still not available for legal digital download, for the most part it hasn’t received even the basic remastering afforded pop music acts with a fraction of the Fab Four’s historical importance and consumer clout.
Thus the Beatles catalog continues to be represented by thin-sounding, now two-decade-old digital mastering accomplished at the dawn of the CD era.
