The idea of the Beatles’ first recording was to capture the raw energy and sound of their live shows. And it absolutely does that! Whoever decided to kick off I Saw Her Standing There with Paul McCartney’s emphatic four-count is brilliant - it immediately takes you to the stage, with no frills.

The Beatles’ longest, strangest work is about to get a new look. But The White Album couldn’t have existed without the brotherhood that spawned their biggest hits. Sure, the spare, shape-shifting album can seem like a prolonged duel, like four warring brothers passing around an acoustic guitar to one-up each other. But Martin sees The White Album more as an all-for-one effort than a chronicle of discord and dysfunction.

Documenting The Beatles’ Hollywood Bowl concerts on tape was no easy feat, as producer Sir George Martin explained in his album notes for 1977’s The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl: The chaos, I might almost say panic, that reigned at these concerts was unbelievable unless you were there. Only three track recording was possible; The Beatles had no ‘fold back’ speakers, so they could not hear what they were singing, and the eternal shriek from 17,000 healthy, young lungs made even a jet plane inaudible. My father’s words still ring true, but what we hear now is the raw energy of four lads playing together to a crowd that loved them. This is the closest you can get to being at the Hollywood Bowl at the height of Beatlemania. We hope you enjoy the show.

The Beatles experienced huge popularity on the British record charts in early 1963, but record companies in the United States did not immediately follow up with releases of their own, and the Beatles' commercial success in the US continued to be hampered by other obstacles, including issues with royalties and public derision toward the "Beatle haircut". It was nearly a year before the Beatles became widely popular in America

The Beatles were among the few major recording artists of the 1960s not to have issued a live album. Consequently, among Beatles fans, pent-up demand for a concert album continued to build. In fact, John Lennon set off a minor frenzy when, in a 1971 Rolling Stone interview, he incorrectly identified an obscure Italian compilation album, The Beatles in Italy, as a live recording ( There’s one in Italy apparently, that somebody recorded there ). What did impress me, however, was the electric atmosphere and raw energy that came over. And so, together with my recording engineer, Geoff Emerick, I set to work to bring the performance back to life.
