1977: Work began on The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl
“In 1976 the Beatles’ contract with EMI expired, allowing them to exploit the group’s unreleased catalog unhindered. George Martin was asked to reappraise the tapes of ... the 1965 Hollywood Bowl show, which he did January 17, 1977, at his AIR London studios. Once he found a working three-track machine, he transferred the recordings to 24-track tape, from which he was able to assemble an entertaining if slightly phony “composite concert”, half from 1964 and half from 1965.” Way Beyond Compare: The Beatles' Recorded Legacy, 1957-1965 by John C.
