received my 4lp set today of the new Beatles White album:
Packaging and quality of is first rate. pity the deluxe book is only available in the 6 cd set. All came in square poly lined black sleeves, so after cleaning moved them into my fav covers33 corners cut white polylined sleeves - looks better than black with this album as well
The pressing done by Optimal in Germany is well, Perfect. flat and silent from start to finish
The Esther 2LP set has played perfectly and I have no doubt the WA remaster will be the same.
Musically, the Esther demo's are absolutely brilliant and sound quality very good. So cool to hear many of the the WA tracks in a different light. The demo of Child of Nature - later to be Jealous Guy is haunting. These demo's are so good, frankly I could care less about the remastered WA at this point
so far Giles Martin for the remaster and Miles Showell for the half speed Abbey Road vinyl master have done an outstanding job.
