Entire Beatles catalogue re-mastered

To launch alongside The Beatles: Rock Band

Apple will release the entire Beatles catalogue, digitally re-mastered, on CD worldwide on September 9, 2009, the same date as the launch of The Beatles: Rock Band game.


A boxed set will comprise 12 Beatles albums in stereo, plus Magical Mystery Tour and Past Masters. Each album will come with original UK album art, while limited editions will feature documentary extras too.

Another boxed set, The Beatles in Mono, will include all of the Beatles recordings that were mixed for a mono release. It will contain ten of the albums with their original mono mixes, plus two further discs of mono masters.

The new Beatles CD sets will be releasing alongside Harmonix's The Beatles: Rock Band for PS3, 360 and Wii.

The game's been creatively conceived with input from Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison (the widow of George Harrison), while Giles Martin, the co-producer of The Beatles Love project, will serve as music producer on the game.
