We'd Like To Carry On

Hello guys, today we're checking out an interesting piece. It contains some, in rather harsh quality sound-wise, live recordings, but mainly interviews and cuts from radio shows. All of this seems to be from 1964. I guess this won't really qualify as a total bootleg album, but is contains some interesting stuff.

The first couple of tracks seems to be recorded from some concerts in Holland, and there are some voiceover in Dutch, well you can hardly hear the music over the screams anyway.

The most interesting and entertaining part, is the radio/TV-show part, in which some guy is in the San Francisco airport just before The Beatles' plane lands. Now this is at the very hight of the Beatlemania, and you can clearly hear this in the recordings.
After that we have a few three tracks recorded at the concert in San Francisco (I think it is), well you can hardly hear the music over the thousands of girls screaming on the top of their lungs. The speaker announces how all kind of signs is being waved, girls screaming, fainting and being carried away be medical personal.
The speaker describes the scene after the show is over, how girls are going to the stage to get hold of jelly beans, which had been thrown at, and later stepped on by, The Beatles, the more sane persons just touch the stage.

Basically the songs on this is pretty much impossible to listen to, but the interviews, which mostly are with fans (some more fanatic than other), there are some parts with The Beatles too, are somewhat entertaining.
So, half of this record is just girls screaming, but if you check out some of the interview parts, and skip the rest, then you'll be al right :)

Cheers, and I'll like to carry on as well!
