I just bought Let it Be ... Naked and am anxiously awaiting its delivery! “I’ve got a feeling” I’m going to love it.*

 

*That was my best pun ever.

First off, yes, I quoted myself. a-hard-days-night-paul-2 I just wanted to let everyone know that I got my LIBN in the mail today (!!!) and just gave it a run-through. I like it! I especially like The Long And Winding Road. I was never really fond of that song, but I think I will like it more now through that rendition. It felt weird to listen to the songs without the group’s rambling at the beginning and end! (Rosetta ... Rosetta ...)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I love Let It Be Naked. My favorite is Across The Universe. And yeah it's weird not listening to their ramblings but you get used to it. a-hard-days-night-george-1

Vancouver! It's been too long since that damn Cup spent a year in Canada (where it belongs!) 

(Back on topic before Joe warns us...) A friend of mine who's owned "Live at the Hollywood Bowl" since it was released swears by its live version of "Dizzy Miss Lizzie", says it's far superior to the studio version - which neither of us has ever much cared for. Says it's "rawer" or something...intriguing...I've never heard it myself.

I'm not. I always thought the Japanese fans were really polite and didn't scream through the songs. Maybe that was only at some of the shows. I'd read that it exposed how poor The Beatles had become as live musicians, after years of not being able to hear themselves play.

To me, this thread is fascinating. I never really knew how much of this stuff was out there because I never really looked. Now that I have all of the mainstream Beatles releases that I care to have (yeah, right), it will be fun digging and sifting through the so-called rarities.

Von, thanks for the correction on the previous page. That's quite the warning; especially when I consider you to be one of the more open minded listeners among us.

paulsbass - I value your reviews as well - thanks!

Now I just have to go out and find it while managing to avoid jail time *cough*Joe*cough*.

Thanks to everyone for your input.

Well, I finally got the Decca tapes downloaded. I have them on my computer, but I haven't listened yet.

I am anxious to hear what you think! I’m still considering them, just because I hate thinking that there are Beatles recordings out there that I have never heard. :(

I’m resisting the tempation to torrent things ... So far.

Well, I don't have them now. My computer was stupid and deleted the files of all my torrents, so back to square one.

Well, I'm listening to a portion of the star Club tapes. Terrible quality, but a valuable historic document.

I simply took the decca tapes from youtube, they are ok but nothing to get excited about. The band sounds like its going thru the motions, probably dismayed at the material they had to play. No doubt they would have played it all in hamburg but im sure they knew it wasnt their best stuff. Plus they werent at one with the surroundings and were nervous. No surprise that Decca rejected them.

 

If youre going for the star club tapes avoid everything apart from the purple chick bootleg release. Its the best sounding and most complete release so far. I found them very enjoyable. Instead of sounding like you're 2 houses down the road and theyre in the basement with all the windows and doors closed it now sounds like youre outside with the front door closed and theyre playing in the back room. The band really rock.

I found the release I have (which I don't think was the one you mentioned) satisfying, especially in the song selection.

Thanks for the reviews, guys. I think I will end up getting them both, but not for awhile.

Well, I have given the Star Club tapes a listen, and you should certainly acquire them.

I've got one cassette with Tony Sheridan.

And One cassete with Greatest hits vol. 1

And the vinyl's Love Songs and Rock 'n' Roll Music vol. 1.a-hard-days-night-george-4 

 

Actually, I don't collect Rarities and compliations etc…

Beacause I'm waiting 'till I've got all the studio albums.a-hard-days-night-ringo-2

 

BTW I know someone who's got all Beatles records that is friend with the local recordshop (vinyls, CD, Singles etc.) owner.

And the best thing is that the record shop owner could order any record for a-hard-days-night-ringo-15!!!

Now, how about A Toot And A Snore In '74? I really am shocked by how such a cast of people created such a terrible recording.

I know...facepalm and a fail for this recording. They were all too high to do anything right. I've listened to part of it but can't bring myself to listen to all of it. John's grumbling through the part I listened to turned me off of it. Paul recalls it as being "hazy." My guess is, the pot and cocaine were freely flowing!
