COMMENTS

A tape with two previously unreleased shows reached the Wizardo company, and gave origin to this LP. Side A includes a show played in Denmark, Copenhagen. Unfortunately,  the sound quality is extremely scarce, and it lacks the first track, I Saw Her Standing There, that was incomplete in the original tape (and in even worse quality). The historic importance of this recording is the documentation of Jimmy Nicol replacing Ringo on drums. Side B includes a Dutch show, during which the Beatles sang over the officially released versions: for part of the show their microphones were kept open, with a somewhat funny effect.

RELEASES

This LP appeared with an insert printed on yellow, pink or green paper, the one on green paper being the rarest. The disc labels were the light blue generic Wizardo labels for all the copies. The discs were pressed at the Rainbo plants. No further versions were made.

INTEREST. Regardless to the poor quality of the recording, this record was quite interesting when it appeared. Not common. ***

NOTE. Side B was also released, from  another tape source of lower quality, in the CBM compilation LIVE HOLLAND-SWEDEN (SUPER LIVE CONCERT SERIES 1). This record will have its own entry.

The entire Copenhagen concert reappeared, from the original tape and including I Saw Her Standing There, in the Italian CD by Why Not Records in May 1989.
