The further we get from those days when The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors and so forth were releasing incredible rock and roll records, the more we realize just how special those albums were based on the state of affairs in the current rock and roll world of 2018.  It’s been years since any rock and roll artists have released anything that comes close to the music we all discovered as new in the 1960’s and 1970s. So where do we turn as aging rock and roll fans dying for new music? It seems we have no choice but to turn back to those original artists that made us rock and roll fans in the first place. Most people under forty don’t buy music. They grew up not buying music, it’s what they know. However, us baby boomers grew up buying vinyl, 8 tracks , cassettes and then the glorious CD. Record companies realize that they still have a fan base centered on classic rock. The record industry has basically now focused all of their physical releases on remastered editions of classic albums.

The Beatles are perhaps the most remastered and reissued band in Classic Rock History. Their albums have been released so many times on CD. Every couple of years Apple Records reissues their catalogue with enhanced sound and different stereo and mono mixes based on past vinyl issues and at times unreleased mixes. Beatles fans eagerly buy these reissues every time a new one hits the stores. How many times have you brought Revolver in your life?

The Beatles Anthology Series that was released in the 1990’s along with the BBC Sessions represented the pinnacle of unreleased Beatles music. The three 2 CD Sets that were labeled as The Anthology Series is the ultimate Beatles collectors box sets. The question now is, since so much of the unreleased Beatles live material has been released what does Apple release since they have already re-mastered all the albums multiple times. The answer is 50th Anniversary collectors editions of the Beatle Catalog with expended booklets, and once again brand new remixes and some more unreleased material.

The legendary Beatles White Album will be released in a 50th Anniversary edition on November 9 2018. The music on the album has been re-mastered by George Martin’s son Giles Martin. The Deluxe Edition contains six CDs and one Blu Ray. The original single portrait sheets that were included in the original vinyl release will be included in the 50th Anniversary Box Set. The best box sets always include lavish booklets and the Beatles White Album 50th Anniversary edition does not disappoint in that category. Included will be a spectacular 164 page hardbound book which will also serve as housing for the White Album’s disks.The original White album poster will also be included.
