And so to the conclusion of The Beatles as a performing group (although some might argue the end really came a year or more earlier) all the circulating shows from their final tour of the U.S.A.

While this may be a delight for completists, the last show at San Francisco is the only decent sounding recording here (and not such a bad performance either, relatively speaking). Also of note is the 'cherry bomb' explosion heard halfway through "If I Needed Someone" from the Memphis evening show. Otherwise it's slim pickings, pop pickers.

We've done our best to make everything sound as good as possible - speed correction, a little eq, and more (but never any compression or noise reduction!) We even used a source for the San Francisco show without the digital reverb appearing on most releases of this concert.

It's not all that pretty, but this is it the end of The Beatles live. (Unless you count the Rooftop Concert and that's on A/B Road if you still need to find it!)
