the only live beatles album was released as a cash in in 1977. ..its "the beatles at the hollywood bowl" and features performances from their 1964 and 1965 concerts at the hollywood bowl in los angeles... the original pressing of this- of which there must be millions- features embossed reproductions of tickets on the front cover.. interestingly enough the cost of seeing the beatles in 1964 was $4 and went up 20% to a whoping $5 the next year...the sound quality is pretty poor for a commercial release..its tough for the beatles to perform over the thousands of screaming girls... george harrison in particular fares poorly trying to reprise his interpretation of chuck berry's "roll over betthoven"...lennon per usual on his covers kicks it on little richard's "dizzy miss lizzie"....obviously the beatles must have had their doubts about this lp once it came out as its never been reissued on compact disc..
