p.s. I didn't phrase that very well. When I say 'built in' I don't mean I think there is a bass-boost literally built in to the recording by sound engineers – just that the bass is so loud it feels like that…

PC's album notes

Admittedly this is not the most exciting Purple Chick release – there’s nothing much new here, and you’ve heard it all before. Nevertheless, this set does compile the various Hollywood Bowl mixes and edits in one place. However, these two discs don’t include the unedited recordings – we’ll save these for a Purple Chick live compendium (if we ever get around to that).

Instead, disc one presents the 1977 LP mix (with a 1996 mix edited in at the side flip for maximum continuity) while disc two presents vintage mixes and edits of the 1964 (mono) and 1965 (stereo) shows. [OK, 1965 might not be a vintage mix, but it’s a different mix/edit from somewhere.]

Don’t let the “Hollywood Bowl Complete” source designation fool you – these are not straight copies of the Yellow Dog release. That CD, especially the 1964 show, sounds rather flat, so we used our proprietary equalization process (first introduced to create the “Revolution” composites on The Beatles Deluxe vol. 6) to make these tapes sound exactly like the vibrant released version. We think it’s a nice improvement.

As always, Purple Chick discs are fan created and NEVER FOR SALE.

mmm, what was that you were saying that the mods had to earn their keep? I wonder why this keeps happening to you? @Joe, do you have any idea why mmm's posts keep getting put under moderation? It was post 22 that was under moderation when I logged in. (However, the thread title wasn't in red.?.?)

I've always liked this album, as stated earlier here by others I too would prefer complete shows over a "hybrid", but this particular collection was very well done and does atleast sound like one complete show for those who don't know any better.  A big reason for the success of this lost classic is the masterful care taken by George Martin who took recordings that weren't engineered under the most ideal of circumstances using dated technology and turned it into something brilliant, and his own personal account of the process is forever immortalized in the liner notes on the sleeve for posterity.  This still remains, in my opinion, the highest quality recordings of The Beatles performing live and anything I've heard since fails to measure up in the fidelity department, and it's a shame that it's yet to see the light of day on CD…:-)

If they are going to release it please dont give us just the 30 minute LP only, the complete '64 concert and one complete '65 show would fit easily onto a single cd.  

Did their setlist change considerably between those two years? I wouldn't want to see a lot of duplication on such a release (even though it's only theoretical).

Interesting. So "Yesterday" and "If I Needed Someone" weren't added until '66, then?

Both Yesterday (Paul accompanying himself on an electric organ) and If I Needed Someone were part of the UK December '65 tour as were Act Naturally (it didnt just fall off the radar after Shea) and We Can Work It Out (the only tour it was performed on)

  1. I Feel Fine,
  2. She's A Woman,
  3. If I Needed Someone,

                        A recording from this tour is at the very top of my wishlist of unreleased/unheard recordings of The Beatles, I pray (something that I don't do very often) that a recording of one of these shows does actually exist and will surface one day, this, along with the legendary 20 minutes+ take of 'Helter Skelter' would make my Beatles experience compleat, 'Carnival Of Light' can disintegrate into cosmic dust for all I care…:-)

                        Just playing this again, and have to say, I think Ringo's voice is bloody terrific on Boys.

                        BEATLES Music gives me Eargasms! By 1966 the Beatles had played over 1,400 shows, toured the world four times and sold the equivalent of 200 million records. At the height of their popularity, and without warning, they pulled the plug and never toured again.

                        $25 for a knock-off copy!!! 

                        Its like paying £300 for a fake DKNY handbag which is extra shiny.

                        I'd love an official release, but I'm not holding my breath.  I have it on vinyl.  Sure, I could just download a bootleg copy, but it's not the saaaaammmeee…..
