Product Description

The final installment of the Anthology series has two discs of previously unreleased material from the White Album era through the group's demise in early 1970. In terms of sheer listenability, this may be the strongest volume of the three, if only because it focuses almost solely upon studio recordings rather than mixing live concerts/broadcasts and outtakes. Also, by this time the Beatles had perfected their approach to recording, meaning that even the early/alternate versions of many of their cuts were often of outstanding quality. There's some prime stuff here: unplugged White Album demos from mid-1968, radically different versions of While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Helter Skelter, a stringless The Long and Winding Road, three beautifully sung and played Harrison solo demos from early 1969, and several songs the Beatles never released, like All Things Must Pass, Not Guilty, Teddy Boy, Come and Get It, and Junk. Not everything here is so great that the casual consumer will be fascinated, of course. As on previous Anthology sets, some of these alternates are only very slightly different from the official versions; the oldies covers from the Let It Be era are off-the-cuff jams that aren't up to the group's usual level of brilliance. It's still a fascinating collection, both for the insight it affords you into the group's creative process at the end of their career, and for the considerable excellence of the music itself. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

たとえビートルズと言えども、こうしたデモ...

投稿日:2014/12/18 (木)

たとえビートルズと言えども、こうしたデモ・レコーディングの出来の良し悪しをあれこれ言ってもあまり意味がないような気がします。要は聴く人それぞれの判断に委ねるしかないということ。先の第1集、第2集には食指が動かなかった自分がこの第3集に関心をもったのは、『ビートルズ(ホワイト・アルバム)』期の音源が入っていたから。68年初頭の有名なインドでの瞑想修行(実際はちょっとした観光旅行みたいなものだったらしいが)のあと、本番のレコーディングに入る直前、インドで作った曲をもとにジョージの家でリハーサルをしているのはファンにはよく知られていたこと。この第3集は、そこでの音源の他、『ホワイト・アルバム』関連の音源を多数収めている。

出だしのBeginingからして素晴らしい。続く...

出だしのBeginingからして素晴らしい。続くWarm ganは、ある意味オリジナルより好きかも。長時間演奏のHelter Skelterの編集っぷりも素晴らしい。とにかく、とてもアウトテイク集とは思えない、オリジナルアルバムと言っても過言ではない出来で、レコーディングの際、そこにいて、その時の空気感を知っていたジョージマーチンにしか作れなかったアルバムだと思います。文句無しの5点。

Beatles

So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating cliches that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock
