COMMENTARY

This record includes the first appearance of the 1965 Ed Sullivan Show and the Shea Stadium tracks. It was reviewed in the 9 July 1970 issue of Rolling Stone, as THE BEATLES "LIVE". The writer says the labels came inside the shrink-wrapping rather than on the record itself, and indeed all copies have the labels hand-glued. In the review there was no mention of any insert, but we do not have evidences of any release distributed on an untitled blank sleeve.

As long as we know, there is only one version of the original release (photo below the title). It had in insert badly cut on the upper part, with letters truncated. The discs had blank white labels, and the labels titled The Beatles "Live" with the track listing were placed inside the shrink wrap.

Side A was copied by CBM for Side B of PEACE OF MIND.

INTEREST. A quite rare and historically important record. ****

THE JAPANESE OG COPY

OG Records counterfeited the US release in 1972. The producers corrected the truncated letters on their insert, that was directly glued to the sleeve. The record had printed matrix OG 596 A 1L / OG 596 B 1L and white blank labels.

INTEREST. As for all the OG Records, a rare and much sought-after item. ***
