Beatles US Album Reissues Mark 50 Years Of Their US Invasion

Saturday, December 14, 2013

THE BEATLES’ IMPACT ON AMERICA is to be celebrated on the 50th anniversary of their culture-changing Ed Sullivan show appearance of February 9, 1964, and subsequent assault on US culture in toto during that crucial year.

January 20 next year (21 in the US) sees Apple Corps/Capitol Records release a box set of the US-only albums, from January 1964’s Meet The Beatles! to 1970’s Hey Judealbum. MOJO’s US readers won’t need reminding that their Beatles experience was a unique one, shaped by albums with significantly different tracklistings, artwork and even mixes from the records that hit the shelves in the UK. With debate always rife as to which constituted the stronger collections of songs, the US versions have always had an exotic allure to UK Beatle fans. Collected in a boxed set with faithfully replicated original LP artwork, including the albums’ inner sleeves, the 13 CDs are accompanied by a 64-page booklet with Beatles photos and promotional art
