I bought two (2) this afternoon. One to listen to and one to sell at 10x what I paid in a couple of years. Might as well make a $buck or two while listening.

First listen the new mastering seems just a bit 'forward' to my ears. Can't really judge on the first stylus trip thru the grooves. But, is nicely quiet and detailed so think it will come around. More music then my original pressings. Am pleased thus far.

Glenn, clever thinking.
I have dozens of MoFi, Analogue Productions and other SACDs I bought when they came out.
They're now at 2 to 10 times the price I bought them.

"Investment Grade Vinyl." Coming to your Schwab account soon.

I've noticed how some of those "special" pressings have markedly increased in value as the years roll past the OOP date.

Outtakes from the White Album? Isn't that kind of an oxymoron?

I have both the new pressing along with the 2 LP set from the the Beatles mono box set. They both are nice albeit with a different presentation. To my ears, the mono pressing is a little more immediate, somewhat more of a studio presentation, very clean (for the white album) with nice mid bass. The new stereo version is just as quiet of a pressing, sounds more spread out and a little more forward in the upper ranges. Can’t go wrong with either….if I had to settle for one I would likely go with the mono version but it’s very close, they’re both excellent. Can’t comment on the demos, only have the actual album.
