4 stars The second of a trilogy of alternative and previously unreleased Beatles material. These three dubble-CDs are a quite interesting historical documents together with the accompanying booklets and just because of that worthy of the admission price.

This, the second one is the one that I find to be the best of them as this represent the time when The Beatles left the stage and entered the studio. Much of the first CD is still from their era as a live band though, and you can relly understand why the decided to stop it when you hear the recordings from classical performances from Shea Stadium and Budokan. Not to mention from their last live performance in San Fransisco's Candlestick Park.

From the studio era there are mostly studio outtakes, sometimes mixed together in an oftentimes unlogical way. Doesn't make it bad though, I especially like this version of 'A Day in the Life'. It consists of the best from several different studio takes mixed together and is in my opinion better than the master version.

Frasse | 4/5 |
