MightyPez: Trolling my ass, every 3-4 years someone decides to release something Beatles related and it's advertised/talked about for months.


Ah, well that would be completely different from "yet another catalog re-release of the Beratles ".

Yes, the Beatles organization tries to have something new ready around Thanksgiving every year, so that they make money at Christmas.  They have to get consent from all all representatives (Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia) so it doesn't happen every year, and there are certain projects which are consistently stonewalled (Let it Be).  But other than the "1" collection, which was released over a decade ago, I can't think of anything they've put out that simply rehashed old material, the way RCA does with the Elvis masters, for instance.

MightyPez: Ah yes, answering hyperbole with pedantry.


So you were trolling.  Good to know.

Dwight_Yeast: czetie: (Everything else, including the US release of My Bonnie, dates from after the Beatles were famous, so naturally is credited to them in some form).

...and for the last fifty(!) years, all the Tony Sheridan tracks have been mislabeled (intentionally) as "The Beatles featuring tony sheridan" in order to sell records.


...or even "The Beatles and guests".

But to be completely pedantic, yes, Subby's headline *is* misleading -- it would be more accurate to say that the Beatles were the backing band on Tony Sheridan's track (and were credited as such).

Dwight_Yeast: I just have to disagree with the headline, as the tracks they cut together were Tony Sheridan tracks, with the Beatles not credited as they were simply hired guns.


The first single, My Bonnie b/w The Saints, was credited to "Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers" on first release in Germany (1961). The UK release was credited as "Tony Sheridan and the Beatles" (1962).

(Everything else, including the US release of My Bonnie, dates from after the Beatles were famous, so naturally is credited to them in some form).

MightyPez: Does this mean we'll be treated to yet another catalog re-release of the Beratles, now featuring 2 minutes of never before footage of Ringo picking his nose in the recording studio because he didn't realize the tape was still rolling?


No, as the Tony Sheridan masters are owned by someone other than the Beatles.

I know you're trolling, but the Beatles catalog has only been remastered/rerelased twice: once in 1987, when it was released on CD and again in the last couple of years.

Compare that to something like the Rolling Stones Records catalog, which has been rerealsed at least four times (each time they've changed record companies) in the last 25 years.  And that doesn't include the masters ABKCO own.
