I don't think the point of the original CD releases of the American albums were the "sound." Everyone knows the sound of the American stuff was inferior and screwed around with. It was a trip down memory lane, to get those album covers (even if in miniature). Most of us (over 50, anyway) were introduced to the Fabs via the American albums, so it's a natural marketing strategy.
I'll pass on this, thank you very much.
in years to come/they may discover/what the air we breathe and the life we lead are all about/but it won't be soon enough for me
