Beatles Around the World

Label: Entertainment Properties Inc.

Taped before a studio audience on Tuesday April 28th 1964, The Beatles participated in this TV special along with the creme of the UK pop scene. The Beatles performed a music set as well as participating in a humorous spoof of the Interlude section of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Apart from this, John, Paul and George were seen miming a trumpet fanfare, while Ringo was seen hoisting the title flag and setting off a canon ball.

The Beatles perform complete versions of Twist & Shout, Roll Over Beethoven, I Wanna Be Your Man, Long Tall Sally and Can't Buy Me Love. They also perform a medley of the following tunes: Love Me Do, Please Please Me, From Me To You, She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand. They finish with a version of Shout.

Included in this release is footage of 2 of the Beatles' most memorable performances. Their 1st USA concert in Washington and one of their last concerts together in Tokyo, Japan. See the true meaning of Beatle hysteria as they perform all their hits to thousands of screaming fans.

These two concert films are a rare insight into the Beatles during their domination of the world music scene.
