19-23 – from the Put It There documentary (specifically, the laserdisc and re-eqed the audio).

22 – The Fool on the Hill Ride – new version, also recorded in April 1989, during that same video shoot
23 – Party Party – Called ‘rock version’ by Dave because they are rockin’ out with real instruments as opposed to the synthetic dance groove given to all the other versions!

This is a comment on the "Ultimate Archive Collection" as a whole. There is an entry for the "Liverpool Sound Collage" EP/album with the UAC treatment, but it doesn't show up in the list of the Ultimate Archive Collection series. Just making you aware of its exclusion.

Thanks Jason - added at http://www.the-paulmccartney-project.com/album/liverpool-sound-collage-ultimate-archive-collection/

Where can this unofficial archive be found?


The PaulMcCartney Project 1 years ago

Hi Maarten, I guess it's difficult to find these days - pls look at the common public sites dedicated to Beatles boots.
