Month & year of release: Around September 1976
I wonder if the signatures faintly visible on the left above are real…
The Beatles Monthly book got it wrong, this is definitely the Copenhagen concert at K.B. Hallen [the K.B. stands for Kjøbenhavns Boldklub, Copenhagen’s first ball-playing club, which was established in 1876].
First date of their tour of Denmark, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand with replacement drummer Jimmy Nicol.
“The Beatles performed two shows as the KB Hallen venue, at 6pm and 9.30pm, with 4,400 fans seeing each. The setlist for the first concert was: I Want To Hold Your Hand, I Saw Her Standing There, You Can’t Do That, All My Loving, She Loves You, Till There Was You, Roll Over Beethoven, Can’t Buy Me Love, This Boy and Long Tall Sally. The order of the first two songs was switched for the second show of the night, and for all subsequent dates in the tour.”
All the above songs in bold fill side 1 of this LP. The fair sounding audience recording is attributed to danish fan Arno Guzek. The missing opening song ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ would not appear until 1989 on a bootleg CD.
Side 2 contains pure filler BBC recordings: She Loves You/ All My Loving/ Twist and Shout/ Roll Over Beethoven/ Long Tall Sally/ Can’t Buy Me Love
Quality rating for side 2: ‘Vgm’
Jimmy and George at one of the four Adelaide shows.
