The first in a series of three double-CD sets of previously unreleased and rare Beatles material, released in conjunction with the mammoth Anthology video documentary. This covers the late ’50s to the end of 1964, mixing studio outtakes, live performances, primitive recordings from the Quarrymen/Silver Beatles days, excerpts from the famous 1962 Decca audition, the most notable 1961 Tony Sheridan-era recordings, and brief spoken bits from interviews. Although this material is undeniably of vast historical importance, it can’t be placed in the same company as the Beatles’ proper albums, in either cohesion or quality. While the studio outtakes (many never even heard on bootleg) are the most enticing items, these are almost exclusively alternate versions of songs they placed on their official releases (the most notable exceptions being the 1964 R&B cover “Leave My Kitten Alone,” the 1962 demo “How Do You Do It,” and the unimpressive 1964 Harrison original “You Know What to Do”). Sometimes the differences are quite interesting (a much more electric-oriented version of “And I Love Her,” for example), but the alternates also illustrate how the group were virtually unerring in selecting the best arrangement and take of their songs for the final versions. The pre-1962 items are sometimes taken from private rehearsal tapes of primitive fidelity and are really of archival value only. One could go on at great length about the many curiosities and finds unearthed by this compilation, but for most general consumers, two observations may suffice. It does not stand up to the Beatles’ fully conceived albums (even Live at the BBC), but the Beatles’ scraps and leavings are more interesting than over 95 percent of other performers’ best work. By that standard, this must be judged a worthwhile collection, especially (but not solely) for dedicated Beatles fans.
