Packaged together on CD for the first time, 'Past Masters Vol.1 & 2' gathers singles, oddities and B-sides, saving the dedicated Beatlemaniac considerable time. VOLUME ONE covers the first half of the Beatles career from 1962 to 1965, while VOLUME TWO deals with 1965 to 1970.
Such was the enormous success of the Fab Four's breakout singles "She Loves You" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" that their vocals were recut for German versions ("Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand" and "Sie Liebt Dich" respectively), which were originally slated for the West German market (and are included on this collection) before being released in the States. Always mindful of theirinfluences, the Beatles in their early phase were also notable for their choice of cover songs. Carl Perkins, Larry Williams and Little Richard were all paid tribute to eventually. While Ringo Starr sang "Matchbox" and John Lennon handled "Slow Down" and "Bad Boy," Paul McCartney channelled RichardPenniman. His take on "Long Tall Sally" induces goosebumps and the influence clearly carried over to "I'm Down."
During the time period covered by VOLUME TWO, the Fab Four stopped touring and focused their energies on studio recordings.The results included some of the Beatles' more experimentalforays, like their first use of backwards tape ("Rain") andthe breaking of the singles time barrier ("Hey Jude"). There are also alternate versions of well-known songs ("Get Back," "Across The Universe"), and songs influenced by Fats Domino ("Lady Madonna") and Indian culture ("The Inner Light") featured here. The most unusual tune included on this collection is "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)." This highly unusual recording was started in May 1967 and shelved beforegetting completed in November 1969. The result was an avant-cabaret number conceived by John Lennon, featuring mumbled vocals, Brian Jones' saxophone playing and sound effects replicating the inside of an after-hours club.

Just had an email cancelling the order:

'We have cancelled your order for The Beatles - Past Masters (Remastered 2 CD) (Music CD) as we are unable to get a firm re-supply date for this product from our suppliers.

Please accept our apologies but we have a policy of not keeping back orders of titles we have no idea when we can supply.'
