They used a different performance of Twist And Shout on the Hollywood Bowl album then they did on The Beatles Story.

The court case that created the phrase "you can't yell fire in a movie theater" had nothing to do with someone yelling fire in a movie theater but was actually about socialists interfering with the draft by sending mail to eligible soldiers urging them to resist the World War I draft.

Interesting, do you know what the case was called?

It's supersonic so it doesn't sound like anything to the human ear, but it sounds like this when recorded and slowed down:

Not all the Paul McCartney albums(only up to Press To Play obviously) had a 1987 CD release.

Makes sense as margarine is revolting and clearly the wrong thing to be purchased; real proper butter every time, not that spreadable butter crap that is disgusting.  If you didn't buy Tetley tea and opted for an alternative tea divorce would be on the cards.

The driving age is 18 in a good chunk of the world and there's no place in the world where the driving age is above that.

They used to have 63 minute CD's. However, they were still 12cm just like the 74/80 minute ones, so it's pretty obvious why they were rendered obsolete.

Also, CD's spin at 33 1/3 RPM, just like a vinyl record.

Oh poor @50yearslate it's taken you this long? a-hard-days-night-john-6 yes, he was making a double meaning of record-revolutions and his age at the time.

CDs do not spin at 33 1/3 rpm, @Dark Overlord. As shown here:

In the mid-20th Century, people were using turntables to spin records at 45 revolutions per minute. CDs spin at an angular speed of 500 rpm when read from the center and 200 rpm when read near the circumference.

At its slowest, near the circumference, at the outer edge, CDs spin at 3.5 revolutions per second giving it an rpm, at its slowest, of roughly 210.

Those multiple meanings that members of the Beatles liked, @50yearslate; not only do albums spin at 33 1/3rpm, the album was released in 1976, when George was 33 - so a year when he would have been 33 1/3 at some time (in roughly June, close to the beginning of the album sessions).
