Magazine sounds off on Beatles' 'U.S. Albums' box set

The new issue of the 910 is a special edition devoted solely to “The U.S. Albums” box with a deep sonic analysis of it album-by-album and track-by-track and in great detail, publisher Doug Sulpy told Beatles Examiner March 12. The magazine will surely raise the discussion level on a topic that has already had much buzz.

Anyone familiar with Sulpy's work knows he is known for his detail in his reports on Beatles albums. That's most definitely the case here. He goes through the history of the Capitol album releases and what made them unique, compares the tracks on the new set with previous vinyl and CD releases, including the original Capitol albums, and talks about various effects used the new set, including compression and volume changes.

Sulpy has coded each of the album track names in green (for good) or red (for not-so-good). And readers will see a lot of red (titles). The best album in the set, Sulpy says, is “Revolver,” with only three tracks on the album coded red out of 22. On the other hand, he gives all 20 tracks on “Help!” the red thumbs down. He does mention the set has nice reproductions of the Capitol album covers.

The issue is available at his website.
