2 stars My neigbour gave me this cassette as a twelve years present some 35+ odds years ago. I was never into The Beatles but he tried to convert me. I had (still have ?) good manners so I smiled and put the cassette in the back of my large collection of cassettes. I dug it out again now because I am, 35+ years later, becoming a convert.

The Beatles was pretty potent live. Unfortunate; they ceased to be a live band back in '65-66. If I am not mistaken, these are one of the last ever gigs they ever did. If not the last one. The rooftop gig they did in London four years later more than proved they still were a good live band.

The songs here are from the first albums and therefore not interesting in my view. I only rate their albums from Rubber Soul. This live album consist of youthful pop-rock, the Beatles way. Only Ticket to Ride and A Hard Day`s Night is good songs here. But the band is never out of tune and they do their best. I am afraid this is not for me. But I agree with those who want this live album to be re-released on CD. It is that good. But I will play this cassette once every twenty years and that's it.

2.5 stars
