It’s a must for completionists. The performances are solid considering the environment they were in. Well worth getting.  

Agreed. I wouldn’t think a live album would sound that good considering the *shudders* girls, but it’s awesome.

I listened to the remastered for the first time last week in my car on the way to college. 

 

Genuinely thought Ringo had a drum solo at the start of She’s A Woman because it’s the only thing I could hear. Don’t know if it was just the stereo setup in my old car or what but I was thinking ??????.

 

Also ending with Baby’s In Black is a terrible idea and whoever decided on that should be ashamed of themselves, literally could’ve put I Want To Hold… and it would have been 100,000x better.

Interesting that John says that people “might” remember She Loves You from *all the way back from last year* a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Guess he didn’t know we’d be remembering that wonderful song for 50+ years. beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Back in the good old days when the radio played newly released albums in whole on Sunday nights, I marveled at how loud the crowd noise was and also how high pitched on this album. I really didn’t discover the music until I bought it on cassette in the 80’s.

Just playing a mint copy of the original vinyl release I recently purchased. Better than I remember first time around. Not into vinyl as a rule but totally the go to format for this ‘let it rip’ live gem. Might get the expanded ‘cleaned up’ Eight Days A Week movie soundtrack but there is something charming and historically exacting about this offering. I did see the Beatles live twice. Both on live to air tele. Melbourne Festival Hall 1964 (Apparently rated top 5 in many lists of live Beatles recorded shows) and of course Our World airing of All You Need Is Love . I was 4 and 7 respectively.

I started getting The Beatles albums initially as presents during the 1970’s when I hit my teens and started appreciating stuff that wasn’t just in the Top 30 singles, and was very keen by 1976, so when this was released in 1977 it was the nearest I could experience at the time to a brand new Beatles album having been too young to appreciate the release of the core catalogue. I was thrilled as it had been TV promoted and I was full of anticipation, I HAD to have it. At the time I was a clerical trainee, so the princely £18 a week I got saw a rapid increase in my record collection with few outgoings as I was still living at home at the time – an LP was around £2.49-£2.99 back then, and think this was the top end because of the TV campaign. I can remember that I asked to be dropped off near town by the kind co-worker who gave me lifts then rather than at the end of my road and headed straight to my local Woolworths to pick it up on first day of release. I can also remember it was a Wednesday for some reason. I made it back home at double time and spent the evening playing nothing else – after I’d first negotiated tea time!

I always thought George Martin did a great job, the sheer wall of noise graphically demonstrates the atmosphere and the instruments are all wonderfully clear and punchy, Paul’s bass in particular. A real contrast with what they claimed, that they couldn’t hear themselves playing, they are so tight from years playing live to a degree many bands today couldn’t muster. George Martin’s disparaging comments about the sound quality on the back of the sleeve really weren’t needed, it sounded fantastic to me.

When Giles’ version came out though I think it missed a trick. I would have preferred the ‘bonus tracks’ to be correctly inserted into the 1964 and 1965 running orders, it would have all fit on one disc despite the repeated tracks, albeit recorded in different years. Given that the three-track tapes had been retro-separated (or ‘demixed’) surely it would have been possible to mix things differently to make them sound unique through filters, sonic spacing or something?

So, he didn’t think Helter Skelter was the first heavy metal song. “Could’ve invented heavy metal if they’d wanted to!” When did people start saying Helter Skelter was the first heavy metal song?

I can’t recall any specific printed claims for it off-hand, even though we all know of John calling “Ticket To Ride ” one of the first. And I believe it was Nicholas Schaffner (in his 1977 “The Beatles Again” book) who described “I Want You (SSH)” as ‘the weightiest slab of “heavy metal” that the Beatles ever quarried”. 

Nobody can agree what the “first” metal record was, but I’m sure that “Helter Skelter ” has been in the conversation since shortly after the term began appearing in print (which was in the early 70s – primarily in CREEM magazine!)

VB, thanks for taking the time to locate and digitize these articles from Creem. That magazine was always a great pre-internet resource . To this day, I can still read articles that make me see things I thought I knew in a different way.apple01

Listening to this again now, and the energy from the guys, mixed in with the crowd noise, is impressive. Very fun. Worth pointing out the vocal performances from the Fabs too. They did a quality job through all that screaming.

I heard ‘IWTHYH’ from the ‘Bowl’ a couple of days ago and it was surprising how different it sounded. And my word, they fly thru the performance,
