Great deal. I've been going back to HMV everyday for the past week, and keep finding new bargains each time. I was hoping some of The Beatles ones would be in the sale. I managed to pick up Abbey Rd and Sgt Pepper for £6 in Sainsburys the other week, and I thought that was an excellent price at the time.

What do you make of the remastered editions? Are they better than the original CD release?

Going to go into my local and have a look for revolver and rubber soul tomorrow I think! Thanks for this OP!

Do you know what price the white album was; with it being a double album?

Voted cold - the Beatles were crap.

This review from last year, when they were released explains the differences:

All 12 original albums, from Please Please Me to Let It Be, have been remastered and are being issued in stereo (these are the same tracklistings as have been on CD since the 80s, including the American version of Magical Mystery Tour). In addition, the two Past Masters CDs, which collect singles and tracks that didn't appear on the original albums, have been combined into one 2xCD set. The first four albums are appearing in stereo on CD for the first time. The packaging for all stereo CDs includes the original artwork and liner notes, along with new recording notes and a historical essay. Rather than jewel boxes, the stereo CDs are packaged in sharp-looking and durable foldout cardboard packaging. Each CD contains a short documentary in QuickTime format on the making of the album (these are said to be limited to this initial reissue).

The packaging in general is very well done; the albums feel like they were put together with care and great attention to detail. You hold one in your hand, and it feels important. I've never been a fan of the plastic jewel box, and it's wonderful that they've done away with them here. CDs slide into a little pocket, so there are no spindles to break. The liner notes are succinct and informative, they favor the factual over the hyperbolic, and they cover what should be covered. The documentaries are well done but about what you would expect: four minutes long or so, narrated with interviews with the Beatles and George Martin culled from the Anthology project, with archival photos and film footage. They're certainly nothing revelatory, but a nice intro to the world of the album for anyone unfamiliar with the details. All in all, they did the packages right.

They did not have the white album or Sgt Pepper, Past Masters was £9 (I think!, I didn't pick that one up.)

As history has clearly shown (_;)

White Album was £8 in Newtownabbey branch, with all others £5, so I assume that this is nationwide pricing.

These are the first Beatles CD I've ever bought, so not able to comment. Nice packaging though!

It's time some Beatles albums were cheap.

I got the box set for £100 from HMV. The sound quality is amazing, you can tell that alot of time and effort has been put into remastering and compared to alot of 'remasters' you can actually hear the difference. Beatles forever!

It's not so much time and effort, more that they didn't compress it to hell for once. However the result is the same: they do sound fantastic.

You can see why lots of modern CDs (including previous Beatles releases) sound like garbage here:
