January 21, 2014 will see the release of the complete Capitol albums collection, the 13-disc box set The U.S. Albums. Eleven of the 13 were originally issued in mono as well as stereo, and the discs will contain both versions. For a limited time, all but one album will be available as a standalone release. The lone exception, the spoken-word audio documentary The Beatles’ Story, will be exclusive to the box set. In addition to the physical box, a Mastered for iTunes edition is being concurrently released (now available for preorder exclusively on iTunes).
The release of the U.S. albums is timed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first U.S. visit, which began February 7, 1964.
