My thoughts? Ignoring the commercialism - The Beatles material really needed a proper CD remaster. The '87 masters weren't really up to the job (although they're perfectly acceptable). What's funny is that this would've only have come about because of George and Giles Martin and the 'Love' soundtrack. Before they did the work on that, there was only one set of masters (!!!) and they had to back up the ENTIRE back catalogue onto modern formats. I believe that included most of the studio chatter as well.
