Beatles: Anthology 3 (1996)

beatles anthology 3

By Scott Goldfine

The third Beatles “Anthology” caps off the series of previously unreleased alternate takes, live tracks and rarities in pleasing style. The two-CD set, 50 cuts in all, cover the Fab Four’s final few years (1967-1970), when the band was arguably at their creative zenith. The stronger source material makes this the most satisfying “Anthology.”

Highlights include a stripped-down “Helter Skelter.”
