Well, I'm one of those who lived through Beatle Mania and still like my old vinyl versions of those records. Pitchfork says only people like me should have this set and I agree that I want it. http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/b/beatles/capitol-albums-vol-1.shtml I like having the records on cd since they're portable. I realize that Capitol really messed around with the Beatles' albums, but I like hearing what I grew up with. I may be a sucker and buy this.
