I have the 1+ BluRay set and I love it. A true feast for the eyes and ears. Its film and music by the greatest band in the world. What else does one need to know? Perfect time for it. Too early and we would of had crappy VHS cassette, wait and physical media might be gone for good and we’re stuck with itune downloads only(yuck). The package is beautiful with a hardback book.


The lower price that I mentioned is over and now it shows as the current price 64.71€


The current price for the 3cd/3dvd edition over at Amazon.it is 38,15€.

Very impressed with the quality of the visual and audio side of this release, the quality of the music contained would never have been in doubt. Just wish that they would have included a Blu-Ray Audio instead of a cd, this would have made the release really special. Maybe one day the whole back catalog of the Beatles will be released onto Blu-Ray Audio with both hi-res stereo and mono. Fingers crossed


I see that the bluray-edition is only little more expensive, but does it really have any advantage when some of the footage is vhs-quality sourced? I think I might buy this but dunno if I should go with dvd or bluray-edition?
I think that dvd would be good enough anyways.
what would you recommend?
