Released on 21 January 2014 this box set brings together remastered versions of the 13 unique US albums (from Sgt Pepper onwards the US releases mirrored the UK releases), 11 of which are in both mono and stereo whilst The Beatles Story and Hey Jude are stereo only. Eight of the albums had previously been available in the Capitol Albums Volume 1 and Volume 2 box sets but Capitol didn’t use those tapes to master this set, with the exception of The Beatles Story, they used the original 1960’s masters and the UK 2009 remasters. It did not chart in the UK but did manage to make number 29 in the US charts. It also charted in various European countries, climbing as high as number 29 in Germany!
