Comments
From Doc's Dec 2006 Announcement:

As many of you know, Ebbetts currently offers a title in the catalogue called "The Beatles Live At The Hollywood Bowl (Capitol Project)." This title was meant to represent the "infamous" Capitol Records project that never came to be - namely, the release of a Beatles live album that featured the band's performace in August, 1964 at the Hollywood Bowl. As is now well-known, this proposed release was given a project number by the powers-that-be at Capitol. An actual monophonic acetate was made of this performance! Sadly, the whole thing was eventually shelved. As many of you also know, Ebbetts decided to bring this never-completed idea to life by utilizing the suggested artwork from Bruce Spizer's remarkable book on the history of the Beatles on Capitol Records and compiling the best sounding source material. What eventually came about was a very popular addition to the Ebbetts catalogue. Unfortunately, even with its popularity, this title has always "bugged" me a bit - as well as many others along the way. While it did offer a stereophonic version of the COMPLETE performance with detailed Ebbetts labelling and artwork, it wasn't a TRUE representation of the project as created by Capitol. (I have been reminded of this fact more times than I care to recount). The original acetate was edited to exclude much of the chatter and dead space and made to sound a bit tighter. Some slight reverb was also applied to the original acetate to enhance the "live" feel. None of these specifications were evident on the original Ebbetts stereo release of this title.

That's where THIS release comes in.

Using the original Capitol acetate as a guide, this release replicates EVERY detail of the original. It has been edited PRECISELY as the acetate was, and with the help of several people who are not only Beatle afficianados, but PROFOUNDLY knowledgeable with sound and effects, the reverb has been replicated. This MONO TYPE-B mix was created exactly as the Capitol acetate was. This is how this project should have been released by Ebbetts originally. The artwork will look the same as the current stereo version.

Eventually, a true STEREO version of this acetate edit will be released as a new title by Ebbetts. At that time, the current incarnation of the complete unedited stereo show will be discontinued, but offered as a FREE UPGRADE with brand new artwork. (That will be explained in further detail when the time comes. Just a little heads up).

If you want to sample some genuine Beatlemania from back in the day (1964, to be exact) look no further! As usual, the Doc's artwork is stunning and will fit nicely between the official US albums on your shelf.

Pros: I actually prefer this mono fold-down to the stereo mix, for several reasons. The mono mix sounds a bit more even and balanced compared to the stereo ditto. It adds to the "what if it was released in 1964?" feel of the album. The slight reverb added is also much appreciated, as the '64 and (especially) '65 recordings done at Hollywood Bowl are incredible dry. The hotter sound on this disc is suitable for a recording such as this. The editing done by the Doc (to reproduce the real acetate) is also nice, as the flow of the show is much better and more interesting.

Cons: My only small complaint is with the original recording itself, which was done under far from perfect conditions. The mix is somewhat odd and thin in places, but the sheer electric atmosphere more than makes up for it.

Pure Beatlemania bliss!
