From Anthology 1 liner notes:
Just as the apex of TV entertainment in the USA was once The Ed Sullivan Show, so the British equivalent was Val Parnell’s Sunday Night At The London Palladium. Both were broadcast on Sunday evenings from the late 1950s through the 1960s, when, after a quiet and reverential day of rest, viewers were more than ready for an hour of Variety. To be offered an engagement on Sunday Night At The London Palladium was, for most British entertainers, a pinnacle career achievement, and very few ever had it so good.
With She Loves You propelling the Beatles not just to the top of the British singles chart but into the very fabric of the nation in the late summer of 1963, the group were quickly invited on to SNALP. The first of their two appearances went out on 13 October, and they headed a bill that also included the compere Bruce Forsyth with his ever-popular audience-participation game Beat The Clock, American balladeer Brook Benton and the British comic / singer Des O’Connor.
The Beatles treated the viewers at home and the Palladium audience itself to a ten-minute routine distilled from their current stage act and from which I’ll Get You (the B-side of She Loves You) is presented here.
