EMI to press more ‘Beatles in Mono’

Pre-orders consumed most of limited-edition set

After an online pre-order rush ate up most of the initial pressing of EMI Music’s limited-edition collection “The Beatles in Mono,” the label is extending the production run of the remastered 13-CD boxed set.

A diskery spokeswoman said retailers who had sold through their initial allotment of the mono set would receive more.

Beatlemaniacs covet the unique mono album mixes, considered the Fab Four’s holy grail. They were left scrambling and anxious when the set, listed at $299, sold out at most U.S. Web retailers well in advance of the discs’ Sept. 9 street date.

While the mono package will be available at brick-and-mortar outlets Wednesday, laying hands on a copy will be a crapshoot with small quantities on the street. Unlike the stereo versions of the remastered Fabs albums, the mono editions are not being sold individually.

In an update to a note about the set’s availability, Web retailer Amazon.com said: “The manufacturer has informed us that they will be producing additional mono box sets due to high demand. While the mono box set will still remain a limited production item, it will no longer be limited to 10,000 copies for the U.S. market, as originally reported.”
