COMMENTS

A compilation including the entire "Atlanta" concert, squeezed on Side A (but with Roll Over Beethoven moved to side B after I'm Down) and, for side B, an incredible artifact done by overdubbing live screamings onto the officially released versions, kept at a very low volume, to recreate the entire Tokyo 1966 setlist - only a few guitar riffs taken from some other sources were left in-between the songs. We suppose that this indicates that this record was released BEFORE LIVE IN TOKYO by OG Records, that started being distributed in early 1972, so the producers did not have any available recording of the concert, but AFTER the attribution of the Philadelphia show to "Atlanta Whiskey Flat" in early 1971. Morover, there exists a Pink Floyd bootleg by the same company, also titled LIVE, on matrix TPL 3003, that features a live show in Japan from June 8, 1971. So, also considering that the company produced 28 more masters between the Pink Floyd LIVE and the Beatles LIVE, we suppose that this record was released not earlier than August 1971 and not later than early 1972. Unfortunately, other than creating a fake live show, the producers had the trouble of fitting the entire concert into the B-side of the LP (and not even the complete side!). How to do it? Easy, by speeding it up. If side A was already running fast, side B was extreemely sped-up, by 12%! The result is amazingly ridiculous, with the Beatles sounding like the Chipmunks... Moreover, instead of using Side B in its entirety for the Tokyo show, the bootleggers thought it was a good idea to save space for adding the version of Let It Be from GET BACK TO TORONTO, which of course is completely out of any context here and required to speed-up the fake live show to this absurd extent. This is probably the craziest Beatles bootleg ever released.

RELEASES

Between late 1971 and early 1972 (photo below the title). Only a single release is known. It came in a white jacket, with one face with a hole to see the label, and an insert in blue paper, with type-written title and track listing. The disc label is white with the matrix number stamped on it.

INTEREST. This is a very rare bootleg and possibly the very first japanese bootleg ever produced. As such, it is a real must for important collections, regardless to its crazy musical content. *****
