Contender for Worst Beatleg released in the 1970’s. On side 1 three “Pop Go The Beatles” performances (tracks 2, 4 & 5) copied from TMOQ’s Outakes 1 are mixed with four cuts from the common Hollywood Bowl 64 acetate – the version with a skip in “Twist And Shout”.
Side 2 is all Hollywood Bowl material, however it is only nine minutes long and the first three tracks are all repeated from Side 1!
The whole package might have been released to cash in on the obscure Beatles In Italy 1965 compilation LP John Lennon mentioned in the December 1970 Rolling Stone interview.
