Editors’ Notes From the band’s earliest known recordings to the multicolored layers of the psychedelic era on through to lo-fi demos and rooftop concerts, the Anthology Box Set provides a deeper understanding of that Fab Four magic. This set contains all three of the Anthology collections. You’ll also find material that remained unreleased for nearly three decades, such as the 1994 recordings based on John Lennon’s late ’70s demos and restructured by Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr (“Real Love,” “Free As a Bird”).
