As Ron Howard’s film chronicling the rise of the Beatles hits the screens, one of the most consistently overlooked items in the Fab Four’s catalogue makes a welcome return—in vastly improved fashion. Technology has evolved a lot since George Martin revisited the tapes of the Beatles’ 1964/1965 Hollywood Bowl shows and prepared them for a 1977 release. Those performances (and mixes) have come out on budget releases and unauthorized CDs since then, but now the performances assembled on the George Martin-overseen "Live at the Hollywood Bowl" album—plus four bonus songs—are coming to CD and vinyl, newly remixed and remastered by George’s son (and "Love" co-producer) Giles Martin with engineer Sam Okell at Abbey Road. But forget that whole saga and just dig the sounds of four Liverpool lads rocking their hearts out with "Twist and Shout," "A Hard Day’s Night," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "You Can’t Do That," "Help!," "All My Loving," "Ticket to Ride," "Can’t Buy Me Love," "She Loves You," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Long Tall Sally" and more!

Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl is an album that captures the joyous exuberance of the band's three sold-out concerts at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl in 1964 and 1965. A companion to The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years, Academy Award-winner Ron Howard's authorized and highly anticipated documentary feature film about the band's early career. While The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl references the long out of print 1977 album, it is an entirely new release, directly sourced from the original three track tapes of the concerts. To preserve the excitement of the shows while unveiling the performances in today's best available clarity and quality, Grammy Award winning producer Giles Martin and Grammy Award winning engineer Sam Okell have expertly remixed and mastered the recordings at Abbey Road Studios, including 13 featured on the album produced by Giles' father, plus four additional, previously unreleased recordings from the momentous concerts.
