Beatles: Anthology 2 (1996)

beatles anthology 2

By Scott Goldfine

The Fab Four’s frenzied revival continues with “Anthology 2.” Covering the Beatles’ extraordinary fertile period of 1965-68, the two-disc collection includes a new song and alternate and live versions of familiar tunes. Diehards may enjoy the rough edges, but these pop wizards are best left behind the curtain.

Tracks showing the evolution of “Strawberry Fields Forever” are a highlight.
