May 4, 1977: The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl released

At_The_Hollywood_BowlThe Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl is a live album by the Beatles featuring songs compiled from two performances at the Hollywood Bowl in August 1964 and August 1965. The album was released by Capitol Records in the United States and Canada and by Parlophone in the United Kingdom. A remixed, remastered and expanded version of the album, retitled Live at the Hollywood Bowl, was released on 9 September 2016 to coincide with the release of the documentary film The Beatles: Eight Days a Week directed by Ron Howard.

The album was originally released as a vinyl LP. Even though the recordings on The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl were between 12 and 13 years old, the album reached number one on the New Musical Express chart in the UK and number two on the Billboard chart in the US. [Wikipedia]

The original album contained 13 tracks, lasting around 33 minutes. The expanded release added four more tracks (tracks 14-17) and a further 10 minutes.
