Volume 1 of the series kicks off in early 1963, taking us through some excellent live audience BBC shows, and then the killer Pop '63 performance in Stockholm, Sweden. The pre-America phase winds up with the iconic Royal Variety performance and an appearance on the Morecambe and Wise variety show. For Disc 2 we go stateside with the best from the storied Ed Sullivan Show appearances that sealed their fame, culminating in the thrilling "1st U.S. concert" in Washington D.C.
THE BEATLES HISTORIC LIVE VOLUME 2
Volume 2 starts back in the U.K. with an incendiary performance at the '64 NME Poll Winners concert, followed by the complete "Sing For Shell" at the Melbourne, Australia stop of their '64 world tour. Disc 1 of the set winds up with the '64 Blackpool Night Out and Shindig TV appearances. Then on Disc 2 it's back to America for the killer '64 Hollywood Bowl show, returning to the U.K. for the '65 NME Poll Winners gig, and finally the excellent June '65 Paris concert at the Palais de Sports.
THE BEATLES HISTORIC LIVE VOLUME 3
Volume 3 covers the highlights of the Beatle's final phase as a live touring act. Disc 1 kicks off with the 6-song set performed first at their Aug. '65 Blackpool Night Out TV gig, and later that month at their final live appearance on Ed Sullivan. Directly following is the complete Shea Stadium, NY concert - the largest in history to that date - that was filmed for a TV special. Disc 2 comprises a stereo mix of the complete Aug. 30, 1965 Hollywood Bowl concert, followed by the "dark suits" filmed gig at Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo, Japan during their final world tour in June, 1966.
THE BEATLES - GET BACK NAGRA TAPE REMASTERS
A comprehensive overview of the Beatle's January 1969 recording sessions at Twickenham Film Studios and their new basement space at Apple. Completely derived from the mono "nagra tapes" - the audio captured on-the-spot by the nagra tape machines as the cameras rolled - it finally delivers on the original LP's promise of "the warmth and freshness of a live performance". Rather than interminable takes of the standard LP tracks, here's a more balanced view giving equal emphasis to both the best of the "works in progress" and the formative material the band revisited for these sessions.
