    :laugh:Huge and boomy was the first thing I thought when I listened to it and it really didn't bother me considering the recording.

  3. The improved sound makes the John and George guitar dynamic easier to hear.

    Though their 'jams' are brief, dare I say their "guitar weave" rivals any in their day and contains a propulsiveness unparalleled in 1964.

    Think how great it would have been, had they been able to hear themselves. I think it is a testament to what truly great performers they really were. How many groups could have pulled this off, with the archaicsound system, and the incessant jet engine screaming???

    All 3 shows were recorded onto 3 track tape under conditions that weren't the most optimal. There's only so much that can be done with these recordings, even with today's technology.

    It's a good idea to lower expectations when listening to this CD. The original album was far from audiophile quality. Taking this into consideration, Giles Martin did a nice job.

    I agree...I know there are a fair amount of Giles haters on here, but I know one thing...I can listen to it now and enjoy it, but not so much before.

    The intermittent tears running down my face listening to this -probably the first CD I've played in two years - prove that Giles did a good job and let me hear The Beatles.

    The new album sounds so good, I've retired my Minidisc of the original LP, and recorded over it with the new CD.
    I'm keeping the original artwork, but I still need to revise it to update the track listing ...

    Not a Giles hater at all. I like Love and the +1 remixes a lot - but on earphones (Sennheiser IE800) it sounds really lopsided and far too subby - to me at least. Will give it a try on the speakers when the wife is out and it may fare better....

    I have that mini-LP also. Nice set!
    You do realize that it's a Russian fake, or "fantasy release" right?
    All of those mini-LP CDs with OBIs, such as A Collection Of Oldies, the German Hits compilations, Reel Music, Rock "N" Roll Music, Love Songs, The Singles Collection, The EP collections, etc., are all fakes.

    Wow...that's cool!! I still have a Minidisc recorder packed away somewhere.
    What year was that released!
    Was it an official release?

    I don't complain about the mix or the mastering, but I do complain about the incompleteness.

    If three concerts were recorded, Apple should let us hear the three concerts.

    Of course Apple can not release performances with a vocal mic not on or train wrecks like I'm Down.

    Can't possibly be official when there was never even a CD....and wasn't Minidisc Sony's baby?

    Yea...I doubt it would be headphone freindly. It just needs to be blasted on your speakers.

    I don't get people who expect all 3 Hollywood Bowl performances to be released in full. The Beatles are the artists and are allowed the pride/vanity of not releasing performances that they deem unworthy, whatever the reason. If you were in a band you would NOT let sub par performances go out on an official release. I know i don't allow such things to happen for my band even though i sit on archive material our fans would very much like to hear. It is NOT happening while i am alive.

    Because the performances are of historical interest now. If they were a current band currently recording and touring it would be different.

    Oh yes they can.

    No, that's just the original LP recorded to a blank Minidtsc with my customized labels and artwork.

    I love Lennon's driving rhythm on their early (especially live (especially Sweden 10/1963)) tracks. The studio releases often times tamed it down in the mix or replaced Lennon's driving rhythm with piano (to paraphrase Paul about long and winding road - more Beatles instrumentation in the mix pls. - less George Martin piano). The live at the BBC versions of Misery, Chains, I'll Get You, and many others swing a lot harder with Lennon chug-chug-achuggin on the rhythm guitar. I could see a producer hearing that aggressive style and saying to himself "WTH is this?" but I love it and feel it was a key element in their sound.

    And your right not to many songs have a driving rhythm triplet throughout the whole song like All my loving. Great stuff. I play a bit myself and never make it thru the whole song stomping out those triplets without screwing up.

    But why would they release recordings with missing vocals?
    Many artists record several concerts and then cherry pick the best takes for a live album.
