Beatles in Hamburg Dec. 1962

It had been generally believed the Star Club tapes came from a single performance recorded the evening of December 31 1961; however, it is now known that there are at least four separate shows which were recorded on consecutive nights, It's hard to believe that only four performances were recorded during the three years The Beatles played in Hamburg, Germany, but this newly discovered tape is better news than having lust the one show as previously thought. These four performances were at the Star Club and were recorded during the end of December, 1962 by Adrian Barber (as requested by Ted 'Kingsize" Taylor of The Dominoes, another band performing at the Star Club) on the eve of The Beatles signing with (Ml. The original tapes containing over forty tracks were auctioned at Sotheby's of London in the 19/0's and were not released to the public, later, only thirty of the forty plus songs were released in 1977 as THE BEATLES live! at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany 1962 on the Lingasong label as a double LP, in I977 on Audio fidelity as The Beatles Historic Sessions and in various other packages. The fidelity of those releases was poor and they were incomplete. Now, available to the public for the first time, here are the miss­ing tracks. This disc includes these lost tracks which have never before been released (officially or otherwise). Note: not all the vocals on this performance were sung by the Beatles. A Star Club waiter, Horst Fischer, joined the band on several numbers and can be heard on the recordings herein. This is the first lime these lost treasures are being made available to you. Enjoy!

Sunday Night at the London Palladium

For the first time we now get to bear the complete Beatles performance at the London Palladium. This show was from the evening of October 13, 1963, and was broadcast live on Val Parnell's ATV television program Sunday Night at the London Palladium. The term “Beatlemania" is said to date from press coverage following this highly successful appear­ance. Only "I'll Get You" from this show had been officially available (on Anthology I) and "Twist and Shout" from the unofficial release Beatles at the BEEB Vol. 7. Listen now as this historic and long-lost show is revealed for the first time as it originally aired before a television audience of 15 million!

And Your Bird Can Sing

The Revolver outtake dates from April, 1966 from tapes recorded on April 14, 1966. The version here is one of several overdubs made on to take two. This take is assumed to have been recorded previous to the "laughing Version" which is on Anthology 2.

Blue Moon of Kentucky

During the June 1994 recording sessions for Anthology, Paul, Ringo, and George were filmed performing a number of rock oldies. Among these was ‘Blue Moon of Kentucky", a portion of which was aired on the ABC-TV program Good Morning America in early 1997. We present that audio clip here for your enjoyment.
