The Beatles ‘Let It Be’ Unboxings

Quite a few Let It Be super deluxe unboxing videos are starting to pop up all over the internet.

Here’s Paul Sinclair’s unboxing of the 5 LP vinyl set. As usual, it is one of the best you’ll find out there:

And here’s an unboxing of the 5 CD 1 Blu-ray set from a collector in Japan:

A couple of things to note.

It’s interesting that the CD box set outer shell, book, folder and CD covers are all done in a matte finish, not shiny and glossy throughout – like you see in the LP set video. We didn’t know about that difference until we saw these unboxings.

It’s also great that, for the first time vinyl collectors are getting a full-sized, 100 page book to go with their records. And that Apple/UMe have produced two different sized books – one for the LP set, and a smaller format (with exactly the same content) for the CD box. That’s a lot of extra effort, but greatly appreciated.

Finally, despite a few complaints from some fans about the breadth of extra content on these discs, there’s generally been a very positive vibe about this reissue so far and the feeling that Giles Martin and his team have done a great job on the sound of the re-mix.

We can’t wait for our sets to arrive Downunder from the USA (where its a LOT cheaper than buying locally)!

  1. Very happy with both boxes! That matte finish of the cd wallets and sleeve feels a bit strange (read: less ‘deluxe’), and is strange because all other Beatles deluxe cd sets have been finished glossy. Seems they started following the Lennon deluxe cd box set style. But apart from that I’m very happy with it.
