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

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!)

Thank you soooo much for this set in particular. My mother actually attended the Memphis show and brushed up against the Beatles after the concert by sheer luck. She told me the story of the show many times, and I swear that's her screaming in the audience! LOL
