Yep, those Japanese just need to forget about seeing all the other faces on the video. The world wants more Beatles, with or without sound!

Dunno what better thread to put this in (“things we learned 2day; or in the last week at least” n’existe pas); but I think it’s very cool that THREE of the finest rock albums of 1967 (all by ‘B-‘ bands even,) all three feature one song using the sound effect of screaming teenage girls at a rock ‘n roll concert…

…and all three recordings were taken from authentic tape recordings of Beatle concert crowds! [I believe Derek Taylor was instrumental in getting a recording to the Byrds, in their case]

The Rooftop Concert – it is iconic, it is not only their best it is the best ever by anyone. I tear up every time. And yes, I do mean better than Queen at Live Aid and undoubtedly the best filmed concert experience of all time, Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense. Love both of those, but for sheer impact and joyousness The Rooftop Concert every time.

Id honestly wish they’d remaster some concerts like shea stadium 65 for a good home cinema release! The picture is there. The tools are there. Make it happen. The Beatles are the only big group who didn’t get a proper live cd/dvd/bd release. a-hard-days-night-john-3paul-mccartney-facepalm_gifmccartney-shrug_01_gifa-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

The best recordings are from the BBC official release as the shows are way less chaotic than their tours and have a really nice mix. As a big fan of bands whose body of work is largely represented through their live shows and the improvisation that happens within them, I get a laugh out of digging through bootlegs where hearing too much audience noise typically makes a recording not worth the trouble of collecting a listening to, and then going back to some live Beatles and hearing the absolute mania in crowd. Its really impressive they were able to play anything at all resembling their songs in that environment. 

I’ll Be On My Way is my favorite Beatles live performance ever. George’s guitar fills are so clean, and the vocal performance is tremendous with John and Paul splitting from unison into the harmonies of the chorus. Its also just a really really good song that shows how on top of their game they truly were in the early/mid sixties that they could just rattle off tunes like that.

I am also desperate for this.

The very first thing I ordered from Netflix (back when it was a DVD rentals, I’m getting old) was a Shea Stadium DVD, but it was a real mismatch of different quality footage. Someone give Peter Jackson a nudge.

Also, does anybody have the DVD of Paul’s Good Evening New York City , where he merges the Shea footage and the “new” 2009 Citifield footage of I’m Down ?! I rewatched that section so many times that my disc now skips a bit at that point.

There are very good prints of Shea circulating, all done by fans for free downloading and with options for the soundtrack audio. You just need to look around in the right places online.

One rumour was Apple tried in the months before ‘Eight Days A Week ‘ was released but were denied by a lawsuit by Walter Shenson’s family.

Shea was tacked on after the movie in the theatre release of Eight Days A Week , very good quality and it was really enjoyable to watch on the big screen. They have a high quality remaster, as mmm said they just aren’t able to release it. 

As a big baseball fan (and Mets hater) I do have a soft spot for Shea because of the Beatles connection, and Chipper Jones loved to hit there. It is interesting that the stadium was basically brand new when the Beatles played there, and in the late 2000s when the Mets switched to Citi Field, Shea was mourned as one of the last historic stadiums in MLB, alongside old Yankee stadium which was also torn down around the same time. Its rich history as a ballpark can not be told without mentioning the legendary Beatles performance. It wasnt around as long as old Yankee or Tiger Stadium, and obviously not as long as Wrigley or Fenway which still stand, but it does belong among the legendary ballparks and sports venues in American history, making it one of the coolest venues that the Beatles played.
