    Gizmodo – All 12 Beatles Albums Newly Remastered, MP3 Distribution Coming Soon? – Beatles Stereo Remaster

    Gizmodo – All 12 Beatles Albums Newly Remastered, MP3 Distribution Coming Soon? – Beatles Stereo Remaster: “


    Beatles fans and audiophiles alike should be excited that the Liverpool quartet’s entire 12-album catalogue will be live and remastered in stere-eree-o on September 9—yes, 9.9.09—the same day that „The Beatles: Rock Band“ comes out.

    EMI says that audio engineers spent four years remastering the collection of albums, combining the latest sound technology with vintage studio equipment to give it an updated, but authentic sound. Each album will come with a short documentary about the respective recordings, and the expanded booklets will have new photos and liner notes included.

    There’s no word about modes of digital distribution yet, but keep your ears peeled—EMI says they’ll discuss that later. And for those not sold on the difference between Stereo and Mono, just look at The Beach Boys‘ Pet Sounds as an example of similar stereo/mono recordings from that era. The difference is like night and day, kids. Night. And. Day.


    London, England – April 7, 2009 – Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music are delighted to announce the release of the original Beatles catalogue, which has been digitally re-mastered for the first time, for worldwide CD release on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 (9-9-09), the same date as the release of the widely anticipated „The Beatles: Rock Band“ video game. Each of the CDs is packaged with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released.

    The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilising state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.

    The collection comprises all 12 Beatles albums in stereo, with track listings and artwork as originally released in the UK, and ‚Magical Mystery Tour,‘ which became part of The Beatles‘ core catalogue when the CDs were first released in 1987. In addition, the collections ‚Past Masters Vol. I and II‘ are now combined as one title, for a total of 14 titles over 16 discs. This will mark the first time that the first four Beatles albums will be available in stereo in their entirety on compact disc. These 14 albums, along with a DVD collection of the documentaries, will also be available for purchase together in a stereo boxed set.

    Within each CD’s new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. With the exception of the ‚Past Masters‘ set, newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

    A second boxed set has been created with the collector in mind. ‚The Beatles in Mono‘ gathers together, in one place, all of the Beatles recordings that were mixed for a mono release. It will contain 10 of the albums with their original mono mixes, plus two further discs of mono masters (covering similar ground to the stereo tracks on ‚Past Masters‘). As an added bonus, the mono „Help!“ and „Rubber Soul“ discs also include the original 1965 stereo mixes, which have not been previously released on CD. These albums will be packaged in mini-vinyl CD replicas of the original sleeves with all original inserts and label designs retained.

    Discussions regarding the digital distribution of the catalogue will continue. There is no further information available at this time.

    Gizmodo – Leica’s Limited-Edition White M8 Digital Is Beautiful – White leica m8: “


    I’ve really been digging these white cameras lately. Pentax’s cookies ’n‘ cream K2000 and now the decidedly more luxe limited-edition Leica M8. If you have to ask how much it costs, it’s not for you.

    Details are thin, but the camera will be produced in ultra-low numbers at an undisclosed cost. I guess I’ll just get busy with the White Out on my $20 Holga to make myself feel better. [Luxist]“

    Free remarkable short sf from Paolo Bacigalupe – Boing Boing:



    „Juliana sez, „Think Galactic, a Chicago-based reading group, is proud to announce that this month they’re reading three stories from from Pump Six and Other Stories by Paolo Bacigalupi. When asked nicely, Bacigalupi and Night Shade Books created a free PDF download of the stories available for book group members and random interwebs denizens to enjoy! The three stories incude the Hugo nominee ‚Yellow Card Man,‘ and the Sturgeon Award-winning story ‚The Calorie Man.‘ Think Galactic, which seeks to engage with speculative fiction from a radical left perspective, is hosting the file on their website, and hosting a convention in Chicago this June. They’re ecstatic that Bacigalupi and Night Shade Books are giving people a chance to taste cutting-edge works that Kelly Link describes as, ‚Ferocious, intelligent, and precisely rendered, these stories include some of my favorite contes cruels and cautionary tales for the twenty-first century. Paolo Bacigalupi is clearly the fifth rider of the apocalypse – you know, the one who writes science fiction in his spare time.'“
