Just so you know what you are buying here is a few reviews from Amazon
"These Tokyo concerts are famous amongst Beatles collectors for a number of reasons, not least because two of them were filmed in colour and have circulated as good quality bootlegs for many years.

Unfortunately,they are also famous for the below-par peformance turned in by the Lads. It is well-knon that they did very little rehearsal for their 1966 tour, having lost interest in live performing by this time, and it shows, particularly on George Harrison's vocal performance of If I Needed Someone.

Compounding the problem is the Japnese audience who remain pretty quiet throughout the gigs, allowing The Beatles' occasional sloppines to be heard with unaccustomed clarity.

Better examples of the Beatles live exist on film, particularly the excellent performance from Paris 1965. However, if the Tokyo concert/s is finally getting an official release then this is to be welcomed, as even a sub-standard Beatles performance is better than most other live offerings available from this period.

A fascinating and rare glimpse of The Beatles live concert experience. "

"As the other reviews have stated, this is not an 'official' Beatles release and has nothing to do with Apple.

Because of this, I was unsure whether to purchase the DVD. I assumed the picture and audio quality would be extremely poor, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The picture is very good and the audio is excellent.

The quality of the footage is no worse than the footage from the concert included on the Beatles Anthology DVD set. I would certainly recommend it. It is one of the few Beatles concerts where you can clearly hear them playing, as they are not drowned by the screams from fans,"

So, as this looks like it's the only place you'll ever get hold of this concert tis up to you Beatle HUKDers

Nice one mate

I have both the concerts as they have been "available" for ages, but hoping this is better quality as it is semi-official.
As the Amazon reviews say though, this is not vintage Beatles and there are far better and more exciting live performances out there.

looks like its only one of the two dates they played/filmed. and not official release. i would give it a miss personally, if you want these, track down both nights.

that said, cheap enough
