"Fourth complete box set of original Beatles albums"[edit]

I've reverted twice now an erroneous entry and gave notice to the editor who keeps inserting the false info. The Beatles Box is an expanded "best of" compilation that does not follow the format of the original Beatles albums. The Beatles in Mono does not contain the three Beatles albums which were only released in stereo. His dispute about The Beatles Collection does not hold water because in 1978, the albums in that box set were all the original Beatles albums issued in the UK. Magical Mystery Tour, an American compilation, was not considered to be an official Beatles album until the CD era.

"Yes it is"[edit]

The claim that the true stereo version of "Yes It Is" was first released on a promotional cassette offered by Heineken Beer in 1986 must be backed by a linked citation. Otherwise, it will be reverted to the 1988 wide release date of the first disc of Past Masters. Steelbeard1 (talk) 20:30, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

A suitable citation was found so the text was rewritten based on the citation. Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:57, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Yellow Submarine Songbook This reissue CD does not contain the 2009 remastered versions or anything similar. It conatains the 1999 remixed versions from the 1999 album/CD. Only the packaging was updated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.243.65.6 (talk) 14:40, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Article name change[edit]

I see that this article has recently been renamed. Could someone please provide a reference to support that the official name of this product is The Beatles Stereo Boxed Set? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 00:51, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Can anyone provide a reference that the official name is The Beatles Stereo Box Set? Radiopathy •talk• 13:35, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
The Beatles official store uses the term "Box Set" in many places such as The Japan Box Set, The U.S. Albums Box Set, the Memorabilia Box Set, and the Vinyl Box Set. AllMusic also names it The Beatles: Stereo Box Set.
It was presumptuous to rename "box set" to "boxed set" in the Beatles albums in light of the two failed rename discussions: move request of Box set to Boxed set, and at Infobox album to rename the type "box set" to "boxed set".
The terminology "box set" was recently changed to "boxed set" at The Beatles, The Beatles CollectionThe Beatles Box Set, The Beatles in Mono, The Beatles Stereo Boxed Set (this discussion), The Dark Horse Years 1976–1992, and Past Masters, and should be reverted IMHO.

  • Comment - It is not presumptuous to use the correct term. "Box set" is a bastardisation of the correct term - lazy and ignorant. I realise that this clashes with WP:COMMONNAME and the general tendency here to cater to the lowest common denominator, but someone's got to do it. Radiopathy •talk• 23:50, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Sound on Sound, Allmusic and Pitchfork - three reliable sources all say it's "box set", so that's what we should use. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 20:02, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Also, The Beatles Store uses "Boxset" and "Box set". GoingBatty (talk) 23:40, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
You mean "the Beatles Store", don't you? Radiopathy •talk• 23:50, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Nope, I mean "The Beatles Official UK/EU Store", but that's a different conversation. GoingBatty (talk) 00:05, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
It appears like it is 3:1 in favor to revert back to "Box set". Do we need more of a consensus? CuriousEric 03:01, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Leave it for another day or two, and if there are no other comments, then I would suggest we have consensus. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 11:48, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Nowhere on the packaging is it referred to as "The Beatles Stereo Boxed Set" or "The Beatles Stereo Box Set." Why argue over two arbitrary names, neither of which are correct? The name of the release is "The Beatles" regardless of what it's called on any web page.ExampleOfHumanBeing (talk) 19:19, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
The name of the "White Album" is also The Beatles, so this article would need to be named The Beatles (box set) to differentiate it from The Beatles (album) if that were the case. The websites below don't agree on the title, but two of them agree on The Beatles (The Original Studio Recordings), perhaps we should use that as the article title.
www.amazon.com lists it as: The Beatles (The Original Studio Recordings) Box set, Original recording remastered
The Grammys list it as: The Beatles (The Original Studio Recordings)
www.amazon.co.uk lists it as: The Beatles Box Set - Remastered in Stereo Box set, Collector's Edition, Original recording remastered
www.thebeatles.co.uk list it as: Remastered Stereo Box Set CD
AllMusic lists it as: The Beatles: Stereo Box Set (probably the origin of the article name)
(Not shouting, just bolding as shown on the websites.) A fundamental discussion is whether "Box set" in general should be changed to "Boxed set", as done in other articles. CuriousEric 22:33, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
