· "SESSIONS" - THE BEATLES

Sessions  was a compilation album by The Beatles planned for release by EMI in 1985, but never issued due to objections by the 3 surviving Beatles. The album consisted of thirteen finished, but unreleased, Beatles songs. A single—"Leave My Kitten Alone", with an alternative version of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", which was not to appear on the album, as its B-side—was also planned, but it too was left unissued. "Come and Get It" was a demo recording performed by Paul McCartney solo and eventually handed over and recorded by the group Badfinger. George Harrison would re-record "Not Guilty" on his album George Harrison in 1979. "How Do You Do It" had been recorded for a possible early single at the request of George Martin, but scrapped later in favour of "Please Please Me". The album also was to include an edit of "Christmas Time (Is Here Again)", from the group's 1967 Fan Club Christmas single. Versions of all the songs planned for Sessions  would eventually see official release as part of The Beatles Anthology series in 1995–96, with the exception of "Christmas Time (Is Here Again)", which was concurrently released on the "Free as a Bird" single. Several of the tracks (both here and on the Anthology releases) are altered from their original states. For example, "Not Guilty" is completely re-edited, removing around a minute of the song. The same goes for "How Do You Do It", which has a verse edited, or "If You've Got Trouble", a Help! outtake with its verses edited into a different order than they were originally recorded. "What's the New Mary Jane" was drastically remixed to make the song more musical and less of a discordant "Revolution 9"-type track.

· "THE BEATLES AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL"

The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl  is a live album released in May 1977 featuring songs compiled from two live performances at the Hollywood Bowl during August 1964 and August 1965. Initially, Capitol Records considered recording The Beatles' February 1964 concert at Carnegie Hall in New York, but could not obtain the necessary approval from the musicians' union to record the performance. Six months later, Bob Eubanks booked The Beatles' August 23, 1964 performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles where Capitol recorded their only performance with the intent of releasing a live album in America. The sound quality of the tapes proved to be inadequate for commercial release; and, when The Beatles returned to the Hollywood Bowl a year later during their 1965 American tour, Capitol recorded their two performances at the same venue. The sound quality of the 1965 recordings was equally disappointing. Capitol did, however, utilize a 48-second excerpt of "Twist and Shout" from the 1964 Hollywood Bowl concert on the 1964 documentary album, The Beatles' Story. The Beatles were among the few major recording artists of the 1960s to not have issued a live album. Consequently, among Beatles fans, pent-up demand for a concert album continued to build. Despite the obvious demand for a live album, however, the tapes from the three Hollywood Bowl performances continued to sit untouched in a Capitol vault for more than ten years. Finally, in 1977, due to the release of the Live! at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany; 1962 (album consisting of a fifteen-year-old, poor-quality concert recording of the group performing in the Star Club in Hamburg) Capitol Record's parent company, EMI, decided to revisit the Hollywood Bowl recordings, and the Beatles' original producer George Martin was handed the tapes and asked to compile a listenable "official" live album. Martin was impressed with the performances, but disappointed with the sound quality of the recordings. In working on the three-track Hollywood Bowl concert tapes, Martin discovered quite a challenge. Anyway, he found the August 29, 1965 recording virtually useless, and except for a few edits taken from that performance to augment other performances from the folowing day, the album compiled by Martin consisted entirely of songs recorded on August 23, 1964 and August 30, 1965. In editing together the two performances, Martin successfully captured the excitement of a live Beatles concert with 17,000 screaming fans in this album. Despite the fact that the recordings on The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl were between twelve and thirteen years old, the album reached No. 1 on the New Musical Express chart in the United Kingdom, and No. 2 on the Billboard chart in the United States. As of 2009, however, the album has yet to be released on compact disc in either country. Because The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl was a compilation of two shows recorded a year apart, a number of songs performed at the two concerts were not included on the album. Songs from the 1964 show not included on the album are: "Twist and Shout", "You Can't Do That", "Can't Buy Me Love", "If I Fell", "I Want to Hold Your Hand", and "A Hard Day's Night". Songs from the 1965 show not included on the album are: "I Feel Fine", "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby", "Baby's In Black", "I Wanna Be Your Man", and "I'm Down". "Baby's in Black", from the 1965 Hollywood Bowl concert (and included here) however, was issued as the B-Side of the 1996 reunion "Real Love" single.

· "THE BEATLES' FIRST" + "IN THE BEGINNING"

The Beatles' First  was released in 1964 by German Polydor (catalogue numbers LPHM46432/SPLHM237632) and was available in the UK as an import. On 4 August 1967, Polydor officially released the album in the UK, but with a different sleeve and catalogue number 236-201.
In the US, the album was released under the title In the Beginning (Circa 1960)  in 1970 (Polydor 24-4504.) In New Zealand, the album was released three times: firstly in 1966 (cat. no. 237632, as above), secondly in the early 70's titled The Beatles in Hamburg (cat. no. NZ SP 125), the track "Take Out Some Insurance on Me, Baby" was retitled "If You Love Me, Baby", and in 1977 as a double LP (cat. no. 118).
All subsequent releases of the Tony Sheridan/Beatles/Beat Brothers recordings are repackages of the same tracks. This title is available in an expanded double CD set subtitled Deluxe Edition, with bonus tracks which was issued by Universal Music on 12 June 2004. The main tracks are in stereo on the first CD and in mono on the second CD. This release also contained a new sleeve. The similar album The Early Tapes of The Beatles  (1984) was re-released on CD at a similar time to this deluxe edition release.

· "FROM THEN TO YOU" (aka "The Beatles' Christmas Album")

From Then to You (UK), aka The Beatles' Christmas Album (U.S.) was a 1970 compilation album of the Christmas records issued via the Beatles' Fan Club—and made available solely to members of their official fan clubs in the UK and the U.S. This limited edition LP was issued as From Then to You in the UK by Apple Records (LYN 2154) and as The Beatles' Christmas Album in the U.S. (SBC 100). Each year from 1963 to 1969, the Beatles had recorded a short Christmas message for their fans, composed of carols, skits, jokes, and thanks to the loyal "Beatle People". Each recording was pressed onto a 7" flexi disc and mailed free to the British members of the Fan Club. In 1970, With the Beatles now split up, the fan club issued a final offering to the fan-club, which was one L.P. collecting together all the previous years fan club flexi discs onto one L.P. Most interestingly, when this LP was created the original master tapes had been "mis-laid" and so this compilation was created using actual flexi discs belonging to fan club secretary Freda Kelly. Master tapes appeared later even including some out-takes. This rare record was sent to fan club memebers in England on 18th December 1970 (at least this is its release date according to Apple), and was sent to US fan club members in the spring of 1971. Though it served to remind fan-club members that the Beatles were no more, it had the advantage of much better sound quality than the old previous flexi-discs and cardboard mailers; also, it was the first time the 1963 and 1964 messages were available in America. Not long after the album was issued, numerous counterfeits and bootlegs appeared on the market, which continue to circulate to this day. The current price for a copy of the UK version is more or less £ 300.

·"PAST MASTERS" Stereo - The Beatles

What's this exactly? It's a collection of all of the songs released by The Beatles in the 1960s that were never included on one of their albums. This includes huge hit songs like "Hey Jude" and the fast version of "Revolution" which were released as singles but not on any of their 13 official studio albums. Up until about 1968, mono was the standard. This means that the stereo mixes done up until this time were mostly an afterthought. It was actually the mono versions of these songs that The Beatles and George Martin spent the most time trying to get perfect and it's because of this that to a lot of Beatles purists the mono versions are the "real" versions of this stuff (up through The White Album, which was the last one mixed in mono.) Here are the stereo mixes.

· "LET IT BE" LP

Let It Be is the twelfth and final studio album by the English rock band The Beatles. It was released on 8 May 1970 by the band's Apple Records label shortly after the group's announced breakup. Most of Let It Be was recorded in January 1969, before the recording and release of the album Abbey Road. For this reason, some critics and fans, such as Mark Lewisohn, argue that Abbey Road should really be considered the group's final album and Let It Be the penultimate. Let It Be was originally intended to be released prior to Abbey Road at some point during mid-1969 under the title Get Back but the Beatles were unhappy with this version of the album, which was mixed and compiled by Glyn Johns, and it was temporarily shelved. A new version of the album was created from the studio tapes by Phil Spector in 1970 and then finally released as Let It Be. The album acts as a soundtrack album for the 1970 motion picture of the same name, which is a documentary film of the band rehearsing and recording the album. While two songs from the sessions were released as singles prior to this album's release, "Get Back" and "Let It Be", the songs were remixed by Spector for release on this album. The rehearsals and recording sessions for the album did not run smoothly due to the increasing level of acrimony between the four Beatles. The group bickered and argued throughout the album's production. George Harrison, at one point during the rehearsals, walked out and quit the group after severely arguing with both Paul McCartney and John Lennon, only to be coaxed back some days later. The film version is famous for showcasing a number of conflicts between the group members and has frequently been referred to as a documentary intended to show the making of an album but instead showing "the break-up of a band". Critical and fan reaction to the album on its release was fairly negative. Opinion on the album today is largely divided, though most critics appear to regard Let it Be as weaker than most of the Beatles' previous works. Despite receiving a largely negative review from Rolling Stone magazine at the time of its release, the album was later ranked number 86 in the magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time in 2003.

The final live performance by The Beatles, was recorded (and filmed) on January 30, 1969 on top of the Apple Building at 3 Savile Row, London. The full performance included "Get Back" (3 versions), "Don't Let Me Down" (2 versions), "I've Got A Feeling" (2 versions), "One After 909", "Dig A Pony" and "God Save The Queen" (which has surfaced on the German bootleg On the Rooftop, fatured here). Portions of this concert can be seen in the last segement of the Let It Be film.

· "GET BACK" (THE 1st MIX) - The Beatles

None of the Beatles wanted to face the job of mixing an album from the famous Get Back sessions recordings. Glyn Johns presented his first version of Get Back to the Beatles on May 28, 1969. He made an effort to present the Beatles returning to their roots and playing without overdubs or studio effects. No doubt this was a compelling idea, the results of his efforts were mixed. The Beatles could not agree on releasing that Glyn Johns's first version, so he edited a second version that he presented on January 5, 1970, where he changed a few things. He left off "Teddy Boy" and added "Across the Universe" and "I Me Mine". Paul would later re-record and include "Teddy Boy" on his first solo album McCartney. Mark Lewisohn suggests that the reason Glyn Johns removed "Teddy Boy" was because Paul had informed him that he would include a re-recorded version for his first solo album, which would be released in the spring of 1970. "Across the Universe" had been included on a World Wildlife Fund album and Glyn Johns remixed the recording. Glyn Johns also added "I Me Mine" to this second version of Get Back because it was included in the movie. In one of the early Twickenham sessions, George sings the song to Ringo and starts to work out the parts. The version included in Glyn Johns second mix was recorded several months later, though, on January 3, 1970. Only George, Paul and Ringo appear on this recording because John was vacationing in Denmark at the time. Johns kept most of the studio tom foolery, but he edited out most of the Beatles' sloppy performance of "Save the Last Dance for Me." All that was left of this track from the first Get Back mix was the refrain and the segue into "Don't Let Me Down." Glyn Johns was true to Paul's initial concept for Get Back. Both of the versions of this album that Johns produced presented the Beatles as they were in the studio, "warts and all." Listening to this first mix, though, it's clear why the Beatles were not enthusiastic about them. Rather than creating a sense of immediacy and spontaneity, the Glyn Johns' mixes are often annoying.
