Comments: The sleeve says: No Anthology Tracks.

Another in the series of Alternate albums, where a collection is put together based on the timing of the original released album.
This particular C.D. collects together a lot of fine outtakes from the final Beatles era, including studio alternate takes, live performances and even some songs of the period as briefly appeared in the "Let It Be" sessions.
It also pulls together some of the official stereo or mono mixes that were less commonly found.

Yes, I know we already have these pieces, but, nicely presented and nicely collected together makes it worth having them again.
