I believe you mean, like they were when they came out in America in the 60s.

Yeah, I got it this week, but they screwed up and the mono versions of BEATLES VI & RUBBER SOUL are actually collapsed versions of the stereo mixes... Which kind of sucks. I wonder when they'll let us know how to get our "replacement" discs.

Paul, sounds like you got a collectors item


As for me, I am sticking with my British re-releases that came out a few years ago
The way the Band originally released them

i saw it in the shops last week but passed on it because i had seen the article about the recall on the messed up discs. i wasn't about to shell out 40 some bucks for something i was going to have to return. plus it looked to have the same crappy packaging as the first box.

Capitol hears collectors: We can keep our sleeves!
by Dave Haber, What Goes On Managing Editor

On Thursday, What Goes On Beatles news was the first to bring you Capitol's official announcement of their return policy for Capitol Albums Vol. 2.

At that time, we advised collectors not to jump on the return offer, because Capitol's official stated policy was that fans would return their discs with their original sleeves, and in that collectors might be worried that their sleeves would be damaged in transit, Capitol might be persuaded to change this part of the policy.

We can now report that the recorded announcement on the phone number you call at Capitol Records now says that the original sleeves for the returned discs will NOT be required.

The recording now says you will be asked for the name of the store where you purchased the set, your name, phone number, and full address, and you will be sent a return packet with instructions to return (quoting here from the recording) "your bare discs and proof of purchase", and that revised discs would be returned to you in the mail.

This is good news for all the loyal Beatles fans who purchased the new Capitol Albums Vol. 2 on the first day.

Official Update: Capitol Albums Vol. 2 replacement info
by David Haber, What Goes On Managing Editor


IMPORTANT UPDATE: Original sleeves no longer required to be returned! Click here!
Earlier today on What Goes On we reported some preliminary information about the return of the Capitol Albums Vol. 2 discs with the incorrect mono mixes that we could not at that time confirm as official.

We can now say all the info we previously posted was correct, and the return policy is now official.

This official notice is from the Capitol Records web site:


Dear Customer,
It has been brought to our attention that two of the discs in the original manufacturing run of The Beatles' box set "The Capitol Albums Vol. 2" (0946 3 57497 2 4 / 0946 3 57716 2 6), namely "Rubber Soul" and "Beatles VI", contain mono recordings which were not the original mixes of the mono masters intended to be included in this historic release.

If a consumer purchases one of these box sets and is dissatisfied, Capitol/ EMI are prepared to ensure their satisfaction by implementing the following process.

Capitol/EMI will replace the two discs within 60 days of purchase. To obtain a replacement copy directly from EMM, the consumer should do one of the following:

1. Call 800-468-2362 and provide information on their CD purchase. They will also be asked to return the two CDs to EMM.

Or

2. Request a replacement copy by writing to:

EMI Music Distribution
Customer Fulfillment Operations
1 Capitol Way
Jacksonville, IL 62650-1095
Attn: Director of Quality Assurance

Consumer's name, address, original dated receipt and the two existing CDs in their accompanying jacket must be included.

Sincerely,
Regional Director

Even though this is the currently officially stated policy, we at What Goes On advise collectors might not want to send in their discs right away. The requirement of having to send your original discs with their original sleeves is probably upsetting some collectors who fear their sleeves will be damaged in transit, and although we don't have any official word to base this on, we suspect this part of the return policy might be changed at some point.

In addition, we now know that the report about "SK1" on the sticker of the set is also true. If you see a set in the store with "SK1" after the stock number on the sticker, then that set definitely has the correct mono mixes. The absence of "SK1" doesn't necessarily mean you have the wrong mono mixes, however. There have been reports that some fans received the correct mixes, even though their sticker didn't have the "SK1" on it.
