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.

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

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

                        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.

                        In response to my post about the 50th anniversary celebration here, I figure it's more appropriate to post a review here than at the news thread.

                        Nothing awesome happened. At all.

                        This is an exceptionally kind review of the show. But IMO, it was, in the words of other concert goers posting at the Hollywood Bowl Facebook page and tweeters at large, more akin to a high school talent show than a celebration worthy of The Beatles. And I think the Bowl knows it, because they haven't bothered to showcase either Friday or Saturday night in a post.

                        It makes me wonder if Bob Eubanks and Dave Stewart couldn't gather the talent they were hoping for, or people bailed. Because there's no way Dave Stewart actually set out to feature members of his family for a show of Hollywood Bowl caliber. Or for Billy Ray Cyrus (Miley's dad, of "Achy Breaky Heart" fame) to be the headliner! 

                        There were highlights, such as Vanessa Amorosi - one of the few who seemed to be actually into the material - but she wasn't enough to hold down the entire show. I even liked Dave's kid Kaya's rendition of "Don't Let Me Down," though some of the lyrics seem fairly inappropriate for a 14-year-old. And Liv Warfield, who was lackluster during the first half of the show faithfully replicating the Beatles' Hollywood Bowl setlist, suddenly woke up for "Come Together" during the second half. And I loved the production design.

                        But the low points far overshadowed the few highlights. The fact that it was a tribute show wasn't the problem. Even having unknowns wouldn't haven't been a problem in a far less historic venue. But for a celebration of this size, most of us (particularly those who paid substantially more than I did) were expecting some big names, something akin to the Grammy tribute. On top of that, most of the performers seemed uninterested or unfamiliar with the early material, barely giving it life. Stewart's kid Django is actually a decent singer that I've seen perform with his quirky former band The Midnight Squires in a smaller venue, but he doesn't have the charisma to handle a mainstream Beatle show of this size, and his one dance move wasn't going to cut it. Last night, Michelle Branch (named after the Beatles song) performed "Eleanor Rigby," and she absolutely murdered it with flat notes. Overall, the worst moment was the band having to transpose "Hey Jude" several keys down for Billy Ray Cyrus, who still had trouble hitting the notes. The song became a funeral dirge. Edit: Here's a video.

                        No Beatle showed up, but producer Bob Eubanks read a greeting from Paul at the beginning of the show. And it's just as well they didn't, as I would have been embarrassed for them. They certainly deserved much better.
