Published April 16th, 2013

Album was released May 6, 1977. Of the 13 tracks, six “All My Loving”, “She Loves You”, “Thing We Said Today”, “Roll Over Beethoven”, “Boys” and “Long Tall Sally” are from the concert of 28 August 1964. The remaining seven “Twist And Shout”, “She’s A Woman”, “Dizzy Miss Lizzy”, “Ticket To Ride”, “Can’t Buy Me Love”, “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Help!” are from the concert of 29 August 1965. They have been edited together successfully by George Martin to make a highly enjoyable live album. Because the original recordings were made on old-fashioned three-track machines, it was necessary to transfer them onto 16-track tape before George Martin and Geoff Emerick, his studio engineer, could filter, equalise and edit them. The major problem was that with continual use the tape heads of these old machines overheated and melted the magnetic tape. The resourceful Martin hit on the idea of using hair dryers blowing cold air to cool down the tape heads.
