More commercials for the vinyl collection

DeAgostini Beatles Vinyl Collection, here with Abbey Road.
For their current re-release of The Beatles' albums on vinyl, DeAgostini has compiled two interviews with Kevin Howlett and Sean Magee into two commercials of different lengths, one is half a minute, the other one a full minute. Here's the longer of the two, the shorter one is just an edit of this. Howlett describes his contribution of booklets as a sort of "Director's cut" of the essays he wrote for the 2009 CD booklets, whereas the newer compilation albums have all-new booklets with new essays by him. Magee talks about making the new lacquers at Abbey Road.

As you probably know, this collection is also out in Italy. For a visual comparison between the 2012 vinyl remastered "White album" and the DeAgostini pressing, here's Italian fan Pippo Losballato letting you take a good look at the two editions, commenting in English for your convenience.

Update: The DeAgostini Beatles vinyl collection has now also been launched in Germany.

Does anyone know how I can subscribe to this in the US? I have gotten the first three but I can't get the extras without subscribing. Also, mine came damaged! I contacted the sellers directly but the were a no go.
