Anthology 3 continues to tell the story of the Beatles chronologically. This set ranges from May 1968, through to 1970 ... and the end of The Beatles.
Unfortunately, this set is spoilt in some cases by the creation of "new" mixes from basic takes, rather than complete untouched takes ... but there are so many unavailable takes as to make this essential anyway !
The producer and project leader was George Martin.
From 22nd May 1995 George Martin with occasional assistance from Paul, George and Ringo began to re-listen, and mix tracks intended for The Beatles Anthology albums.
Additional research was by Mark Lewisohn, a local man from Essex who is responsible for the two most essential books about the Beatles ... "The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions", and "The Complete Beatles Chronicle".
This release was a triple L.P. double-gatefold album set, or on a double C.D. set with the cover design by Klaus Voorman.
