Comments
In Association With DARTHDISC


This release clears up a lot of speculation about the Beatles’ Star Club tapes, thanks to an unedited and unprocessed source tape (for which we cannot thank DarthDisc and the Darthelves enough). Although the recording dates are still guesses, we now know the correct order for about 2/3 of the songs. Even so, the second half of disc one is sequenced based more on smooth transitions than solid setlist information.

We tried to make sure every Star Club sound was accounted for, but not repeated: auditioning many “Live At The Star Club” CDs and LPS on a number of labels. Even so, we used Darthdisc’s unprocessed tape wherever possible. As well as offering upgrades and previously unheard chat “Red Hot,” though still incomplete, is twice as long as before. “Red Sails…” now has an extra verse compared with the released version, while “I Saw Her Standing There” on disc two has an extra guitar solo. Conversely, we removed looped portions of “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down…”, “Twist And Shout” and “I Remember You.”

It’s by no means perfect, but it’s the best we have at the moment. And it’s the first time we’ve listened to the Star Club tapes in years. Hopefully you’ll gain a new appreciation for these historic recordings as well.

All tracks mono, at the correct speed, and eq’d for the most coherent listening experience. Enjoy!

As always, Purple Chick discs are fan created and NEVER FOR SALE.

Review by: PublanskiOn 02 Feb 2008 at 18:15 CEST
I've been hoping Purple Chick would do a Hamburg disc since they've done such a kick ass job with every other release. (If EMI had any brains, they'd release them officially.) Well, our good friends at the PC, in conjunction with the apparent keepers of the grail at DARTHDISC, do not disappoint. The wonders of modern technology mixed with, if we believe the liner notes, an unprocessed source tape, make for the best sounding Star Club album or disc I've ever heard, by far. It's not even close. And while the sound is still nowhere near high fidelity, it's clearer and more natural sounding than has ever been presented. No horrible noise reduction. No tape speed errors. No stupid mixing or clumbsy edits. All the chatter between songs is there and intelligible, like when Paul is introducing "A Taste of Honey" and says, "John's gonna hate" it. To which John sarcastically replies, "I love it." It's a real treat.

I have to admit I've never agreed with those (like the Beatles themselves) who have said that the Star Club tapes were a pile of shit. Sure, they sounded like you were listening to the band through a tin can pressed up against the door of the club, but I've always thought they rocked, and rocked hard. In fact, if I had only one chance to see the Beatles live, this is where I would have wanted to be, drinking beer, dancing with my chick, and listening to the greatest rock and roll band in the world rip it up. This catches the Beatles at their peak as a working rock and roll band. Sure, they would go on to bigger and better things, making some of the most incredible recordings of the 20th century, but they would never rock this hard again, never make me want to get up and mosh. Savage Young Beatles, indeed.

This might be Purple Chick's best release, if only because it resurrects a vital piece of the Beatle's history. Thank you, Purple Chick. I really appreciate your hard work and most excellent results.

Thanks PC and Darthdisc, this is a really big work!
Review by: mlucifersamOn 04 Feb 2008 at 23:15 CEST
An essential addition to any ones collection, and while your at it, get rid of your old Star Club CDS, you don't need them now.
Review by: poorottertedOn 08 Feb 2008 at 13:58 CEST
As of early 2008, this is the set to get for your Star Club cravings! For the uninitiated, the sound quality is not soundboard - remember its 1962 in a German bar : ) Some of the somgs are incomplete. But, as others have stated, it's an important part of history and you can feel (and hear) the energy they had on stage. IMO, this would have been the time period to see the Beatles live! Thanks, Purple Chick and Darthdisc - you've done a tremendous job!
Review by: dnesorOn 25 Feb 2008 at 00:45 CEST
I would love to know who is playing keyboard on "Red Hot"!!

Maybe Roy Young????

Great disc...a lot easier to listen to without the silly processing/edits...


Review by: Sky xOn 26 Feb 2008 at 03:28 CEST
Great disc - thanks Purple Chick - real easy and a lot of fun to listen to.
Review by: drrobert61On 21 Mar 2008 at 01:18 CEST
Great gatheing of the tapes. highly enjoyed the sound but the band is great & the atmoshere are evident. Part 2 is just as good!!
Review by: AidanymousOn 03 Jun 2008 at 18:02 CEST
A lot of work has obviously been put into this set, and it has paid off. The most complete and coherent version out there, and sounding as good or better than any of them. I have to agree with Publanski's comments about the performances themselves: they're storming shows! The group would soon limit themselves to twenty-five minute sets of greatest hits, and became a worse live act for doing so. But they obviously felt that succeeding in the business meant a clean act as well as new suits, and times being what they were, they were no doubt right... Releasing a performance like this (if it had been recorded professionally) would have been so far ahead of their time, it would have been commercial suicide. But the group is relaxed, confident, and on top form (I wonder what George Martin's recordings at the Cavern sounded like, and what happened to them?). If only it was a better recording and we had the complete shows...
Review by: subhajit_2kOn 01 Aug 2008 at 21:51 CEST
Absolutely astonishing. A HUGE big thank you to Purple Chick and Darthdisc!
Review by: spiderjeruOn 03 Apr 2009 at 18:08 CEST
When Apple went to court in 1998 and finally put an end to Lingasong Music's involvement with these tapes, they did fans a huge favor by putting these recordings back in the hands of bootleggers where they belonged. While I would never get rid of my Japanese CD of these performances, Purple Chick's release should be now be considered the definitive version.

If Apple were smart, they'd license them to Bear Family and let the German-based label put out a handsome box set, ala the Sheridan tapes.
Review by: johnbatOn 23 Jun 2009 at 00:48 CEST
Easily the nicest, best sounding collection of these historically important tracks. The sound will always leave a bit to be desired, but in my opinion, the faster songs from this set rock as hard as anything the Beatles ever recorded!
Review by: TheLazenbyOn 31 Oct 2009 at 22:00 CEST
Isaiah, PC clearly states who performed those tracks, and included them as mere bonus tracks, as they're usually lumped together with the Beatles' recordings.

This is an absolutely excellent collection, covering all bases. The best Star Club set.
Review by: grandegiOn 02 Nov 2009 at 23:21 CEST
In my opinion the best Star Club set available so far, the most authentic and the most complete one. People at "Purple Chick" should be sanctified.
P.S. Isaiah's review is just pointlessness
Review by: IsaiahOn 30 Nov 2009 at 00:32 CEST
Let me state, just for the record that my original comments about this album should have been in no way construed as a review. They were merely comments.

Here's my actual review of this album:

This is a great album. There's so much great unreleased material here. This is the best bootleg of the star club material that I've ever heard. This is worth every dime of what I paid for it.

Peace,

Isaiah
Review by: urasam2On 06 Apr 2010 at 08:40 CEST
Listening to Red Hot just now, I have to say I am not convinced that this is the Beatles playing. The vocal doesn't sound like any of them, and there is keyboard playing. Am I wrong?
Review by: Shears64On 06 Mar 2011 at 18:33 CEST
I love these discs. I really don't have much to add to Publanski's review, except that I by pure coincidence was listening to this set for the first time and reading "You Never Give Me Your Money", Peter Doggett's well written, but sad book about The Beatles', post-break up. It focuses on their business, financial and legal relationships and never-ending disputes. Having read the book I really wonder how these poor guys survived the stress (admittedly much of their own making).
So, I'm reading this book about four guys for whom success has become, to some extent anyway, misery; and I'm listening to these two discs of these same four guys when they were just a good rock and roll band. There they are in quality low-fi sound, joking around on stage and playing the music they love to people who have actually come to hear them play. And very soon everything is going to go great and wrong at the same time. My dad always said "Be careful what you wish for."
The irony is that all they ever gave the fans was pleasure.
Review by: aldejerphOn 24 Mar 2011 at 09:22 CEST
Nice album, thanks purple chick for putting the set in the best order, in best quality available. Gee ! I spend a few amount of money getting the recordings in the 80's, buying LPs for a few extra tracks. Now I got the set as complete as can be for free.

>>This is worth every dime of what I paid for it.
Sorry Isaiah but Purple Chick disc are not for sale. Too sad someone maid you pay for something he had for free.
Review by: julesmctrainspotterOn 27 Mar 2011 at 20:53 CEST
Purple Chick are the best of the best! This must have taken many hours of hard work to put together. Their labours were worth every minute, an incredibly important and historical release.
