    I can't believe the extra 4 songs are just being tacked on to the end of the 1977 compilation line-up, almost as an afterthought totally out of context. There's more than enough space on a CD to contain two full concerts, one from each year. Sure, there would be a doubling up of three songs (Twist And Shout, Can't Buy Me Love, A Hard Day's Night), but two complete concerts with spoken intros in context and unedited banter would be a much more enjoyable listen than what we're going to get. And shouldn't the cover artwork at least show a scene from one of the Hollywood Bowl concerts? Another lost opportunity.

    Once again: Apple, Capitol, the Beatles-Estate etc. – they are all either merchands, seeking for profit, or artists, seeking for reputation. NO HISTORIANS amongst the owners of the Beatles' music rights. Unfortunately.

    Too bad the disc is only half full with a lot of other songs that will remain unreleased sitting in the Apple archives… As for the bonus tracks being added after the original album, just think of it as an encore.

    The bass and drums should be centered. Idiots!

    Keith Richards is a sad revisionist former(?) heroin addict who will never remotely approach the Beatles with his standard of musicianship as a writer or a performer.
    And I'm a Stones fan.

    I love the most recent transfer of the 8/23/64 concert which was first on line and then pressed on CD by the Medusa label. Its crisp sounding with great stereo . I much prefer the entire unedited show as I do with all bootlegs. I love The Beatles and will buy the new version in September to go along with the vinyl from 1977.

    Does anyone know any place to get a copy of the full complete two shows?

    Keith Richards is just a "Jealous Guy" haha!

    "It's online in the usual places ;)" And there's the rub for a newbie such as myself. What usual places might those be? Anyone care to toss me a bone? gpercy(at)gmail(dot)com

    I don't like the extra tracks just being put after the end of the show. I hope they took the time to join the original sides 1 and 2 and removed the fade-out and fade-in…. 🙂

    Here's a bone – delete if not allowed here (though it's been running for years without interruption) – scour this: beatlesource.com

    You'll be there for hours 😉

    Thanks for email and website bones!

  14. DBerwick says:

    Could someone also email me the usual places? D(dot)Berwick56(at)gmail(dot)come

    Please tell me that isn't going to be the CD artwork. We've had some rubbish album artwork in the past but that has to be the worst.

    @ Gary Lyons
    I was puzzled about the stereo picture too… If Giles Martin has this new demix technology, why couldn't he have placed bass, drums and vocals in the middle and the two guitars left and right respectively. But on reflexion, if it was a three track recording both John's and George's guitars would have been on the same track and of course to similar sounding to be seperated, I guess. Just my 50 cents. Claus.
