Why release the U.S. Beatles LPs on CD? Well, why not? (Steve Marinucci)
Why release the first four albums on CD in mono? (a 1987 interview with George Martin)

["The mixes that I did in 1964 were fine for vinyl, issued in 1964. When you hear them on CD, they're not fine. Now the reason for this is that you hear a wider frequency range on CD, and you're hearing things that I never intended you to listen to in the first place, in 1964 . . . The first two albums, though, you must admit are an absolute horror . . . I was not aware of a stereo album being produced. I thought it had been done after I left in 1965. Certainly I wasn't aware of it at the time."]
