I'm not a "hardcore collector" but more of a packrat or magpie.
I am however very hardcore Beatles fan!
And I would just hate to have mono and stereo mixed on a CD - Capitol (?) did that with the Beach Boys and I wish I had not bought it.
The Martin remastered Beatles CDs were perfect - everything "altogether now" in stereo, and a separate box of monos.
I don't see the point of the reissued Lps, but then that is just me.
