From Doc E: "I wanted a fantastic sounding version of the famed rooftop show, void of the lengthy in-between chatter, without the occasional sound anomalies (like volume fluctuations, for example), in a nice concise package. I believe this is it. It was sourced from several CDs in an attempt to create the best sounding collection. It’s a nice companion to the “First Concert” and “Hollywood Bowl” CDs in the Ebbetts collection."

Another fine release from the good doctor. Grab this one, you'll enjoy it.

If the powers that be had ANY brains, this would be the next Apple Release. The Doc did a fantastic job putting this together. Ten outta ten, baybee!!!!
Review by: John and yokoOn 24 Dec 2005 at 17:58 CEST
not that essential. I have two different copies of the rooftop concert before I had this, and every one of the songs on LLL is on one or both of the two rooftop bootlegs i already had. If you dont have the Rooftop concert yet, pick this up.
Review by: alessandromarinhoOn 25 Dec 2005 at 18:51 CEST
All the previous releases of the rooftop concert had high and lows and lots of unbalanced things in the audio parts, this one is perfect, all the volume is corrected, as well as the equalization of the songs, it is not just a compilation of previous releases better parts, it is soooooooooo much more than that, it is the rooftop concert the way it always should have been. Sounds great too, the best release to date.

It was outdoors in January. It was windy and damp. It was a hurried 1969 sound setup. The Doctor has turned it from an artifact to an enjoyable concert and a great listen. Three Cheers.

Wonderful artwork, isn't?
Review by: AidanymousOn 03 Jul 2006 at 18:15 CEST
As usual, an excellently produced Ebbetts album - I wonder why mono though? It's also great to see Dr Ebbetts expand into new official-ish albums! What I'd really like to see Dr Ebbetts tackle next is the 1962 Hamburg Star Club Recordings! Seriously! Not that I'd expect miracles, just to present the shows in the order they were performed, with the between-song chat intact. They're still my favourite Beatles concert recordings for the energy of their playing, and variety of the songs played (possibly also because the LP was among my first Beatles albums, second only to the red, blue, white albums and Sgt Pepper!). The 30 October 1963 Swedish TV show comes next, but maybe more because of the vision. Then (and Ha! to those of you who thought I'd completely digressed!) this one is third, both for the performance of some of the songs and its poignance ...

Another fine job by the good Doctor! An enjoyable disc for both hard core and casual fans. If you want to hear just the music this is the collection for you. Thanks Doc!

Despite the sterling rep of Dr. Ebbetts, I'll have to dissent on this one. The hiss and the sonic anamolies are gone, but so is the entire top end! Just compare this to the patchier recordings on "As Nature Intended," and you'll see what I mean. (By the way, is "ANI" in stereo?) It's like watching some thrilling spectacle from the wrong end of the telescope--everything is flattened out and diminished. Maybe it'll grow on me. Great packaging in any case.

I expect more from a Dr. Ebbetts release. If this were in stereo, it would be more impressive. The quality is OK, considering the load of crap he had to work with. You have to wonder what the good Doctor could do with the Master Tapes. I hope the 2009 Remasters address all the short comings of the released CD's.
Review by: SoniaKiteOn 18 Oct 2008 at 06:35 CEST
There is a partial stereo version from Purple Chick (A/B's), but this mono mix, sounds more like those years. Very clean, complete, without redundant elements.
Review by: grandegiOn 26 Sep 2009 at 22:26 CEST
Not at Ebbetts standard. First of all, this performance should be reproduced in stereo, not mono. But the real disappointment is in the overall final quality. He sure started from a bad source, but it can't be denied that the final result is sub par. It's not tragic but I find it simply not enjoyable: too many EQ and volume fluctuations and still a lot of anomalies left...
Review by: majomorOn 18 Mar 2013 at 15:09 CEST
A really enjoyable listen.And it's interesting to hear the songs used for "Let It Be" before they were "sweetened" for the official release...
