9-9-9

At 9-9-9 (John's favorite number) all the Beatle music will be released again, remastered in better sound quality, and in both stereo ànd mono. Until now only some cd-EP’s and cd-singles contained mono versions of stereo songs.
They didn't really care about stereo in the 60s, so they mixed the music in mono (first the producer, and later John and Paul themselves) and let somebody else do the stereo mixes. For instance some parts of Sgt. Pepper sound completely different in mono, with vocals and sound effects you don’t hear in the stereo mix. The mono cd's will only be available in a limited box set, so I guess next month I'll be officially bankrupt...
