Beatles The U.S. Albums Box Set Due In January

The Beatles took America by storm in 1964, so to celebrate next year's 50th anniversary of the occasion Capitol/Apple will release The U.S. Albums - a 13-CD box set spanning 1964's Meet The Beatles! to 1970's Hey Jude on January 21.

Back in The Beatles's early days, the band's American label, Capitol, issued different albums than the ones that EMI put out in the U.K. When The Beatles catalog was released on CD in 1987 both EMI and Capitol issued the U.K. versions of the LPs. The U.S. Albums box set marks the first time the American versions of The Beatles's catalog will come out on CD.

Watch a promo for the new box set:
