The Beatles' classic mono albums have been remastered at Abbey Road ready for a new vinyl release.
The mono format was how listeners first heard the Fab Four but they have been remastered by Grammy-winning engineer Sean Magee and Grammy-winning mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz.
The pair remastered the records without using any digital technology, instead choosing to use the same procedures used in the 1960s.
The Beatles' nine UK albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs.
The nine remastered albums include: Please Please Me, With The Beatles, A Hard Day's Night, Beatles For Sale, Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour as well as The Beatles (2-LP) and Mono Masters (3-LP).
