In case you weren’t one of the lucky few who got to see The Beatles when they came to Seattle in 1964, you can sleep easy knowing you didn’t catch their finest show.

The band that led the British invasion played the Seattle Center Coliseum, now KeyArea, and their set barely lasted 30 minutes, according to the Seattle PI.

An author of a “definitive book on Beatles bootlegs” said, according to the PI, the bootleg recording of the Seattle show was the worst of the complete or near-complete shows form that tour.


So instead of listening back the bootleg recording from 1964, we thought we’d offer up the studio-recorded versions of their set list, with a bonus video of the cover, “Long Tall Sally.”
