In the modern world where everything is seemingly a click away, it can be very exciting to find out about something that is truly difficult to get hold of.
Last week the Italian newspaper La Repubblica starting selling The Beatles remastered CDs in newstands in Italy. The CDs selling for €9.90 each and the first CD – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band came with this exclusive box to keep all the stereo remastered CDs in.
Every week a different CD is available until they have completed the entire catalogue (including Past Masters). The CDs themselves are identical to the 2009 stereo reissues.
The ONLY way to get the box was to physically get to an Italian newspaper kiosk on 16 October and hope they had some Sgt Pepper CDs left with the box set. The box is rigid and sturdy and complements the Mono box very nicely.
Thanks to ‘our man in Italy’ (Roberto) for help in getting hold of this box!
