ZAP 7853: THE BEATLES No Obvious Title

One thing I knew I would not enjoy, is liisting Ken’s Beatles output – unlike Dub’s Beatles output, which had some real winners in the three live 1964 releases he put out (Hollywood Bowl, Atlanta Whiskey Flats & Vancouver 1964), which firmly belongs in a section described very fittingly by Beatles Bootlegs expert John Winn:

“1976 … Two dreadful compilation series also began: THE VERY BEST OF THE BEATLES RAREST VOLUME ONE (up through SEVEN) simply proved the equation, well known to film students: long in title = short in quality. And a strange series on ZAP (subtitled “1st AMENDMENT”, “2nd AMENDMENT”, etc.) overlooked the obvious title A WASTE OF VINYL in calling its first volume NO OBVIOUS TITLE.”
