Tyerone: I can't tell if you simply never got anything past Anthology 1 or what? 'cos I mean if you're complaints are just at Anthology 1 I can kind of understand that but calling ALL 3 volumes/6 CDs of the Anthology awful? You must be off your rocker, sir. Anthology 2 and 3 have all sorts of interesting alternate takes of songs on them.
My main complaint about the Anthologies is that they left out at least a few really good alternate takes that I've gotten to hear on bootlegs.
Tony Sheridan is doing the vocal, the Beatles were just the back-up band for him on this one. The Anthology series were released due to so many boolegs floating around (some of very poor quality). Have you listened to all 3 Anthologies? They're hardly terrible. True fans would disagree with you on that one Tyerone. ;)
