I own the set with the Blu-ray and CDs and it is better than what I previously owned.

I have the high resolution PCM files of this issue. The sound is very nice and fresh. This is the best version of the white album out there. If its an audiophile pressing it would be a gem!

Yes, I have the vinyl set. Of the several pressings of the "White Album" that I own, it is clearly the best. But personally, I like the Esher Demos even better! They are very intimate and communicate the essence of the songs. Overall, well worth the price for the vinyl set.

They have it at Walmart of all places. I nearly bought it last night but passed since I have at least 5 versions of it. Thing is, I've heard some of the demo tracks on Sirius and thought they were pretty interesting.

I guess I'll head over and buy it.

Thanks for the input.

Go figure (Walmart). I have the digital (CD) version and really like it, and like others prefer the Esher demos.

How much is the LP set at Walmart?

I certainly paid more for the Blu-ray - CD set.

Great price. $50/4 LPs. List price is typically $100 and even on Walmart’s website it’s $73 right now. Good score.

This was done very well. I have a first pressing, the MFSL box set, and this newest release is just as good, if not a bit better than any others I have. The demos are special.
