Unboxing The Beatles Box

I woke this morning with one thought: Today is the day my Beatles Remastered box sets were coming — both the stereo and mono sets. I knew everyone else in the NPR Music office would be filled with jealous rage and venom.

Below are my pictures of an angry cast of characters — Stephen Thompson, Mike Katzif and Lars Gotrich — all trying to touch the holy grail and take me out at the same time.

I interviewed Kevin Howlett today; he's a Beatles documentarian who wrote the extensive liner notes for the box sets. I'll have that interview online next week.

In the meantime, I think I know what I'll be doing this weekend.
