is a The Capitol Albums, Volume 1 box set compilation comprising The Beatles' 1964 American Capitol Records releases. The set, which features the first official stereo versions of a number of tracks on compact disc, was released in late 2004. The CDs were mastered from submaster tapes from the Capitol Records vaults which were prepared by Capitol A&R executive Dave Dexter, Jr, who added reverb to several tracks and simulated stereo (" fake stereo") on mono tracks.
The box set debuted on the
Billboard 200 album chart on 4 December 2004 at number 35 with sales of 37,303 copies. It spent 6 weeks on the chart. The box was certified with gold and platinum awards on 17 December 2004 by the RIAA.
