It's The Beatles all day today on The Drive as the subject of our Thursday Artist Portrait. It all started here on the overnight several hours ago and we just featured a great Beatles compilation from 1995, The Beatles' Anthology 1, the first of several volumes overseen by their longtime friend and producer, George Martin.

There's a lot of early Beatle tracks on this one...it's three records full of song demos, alternate takes, live recordings and rehearsals. Plus, there's tape of the guys talking to each other in between takes. We heard all of these elements and more as we tracked Side 3 this time. Great early alternate versions of Beatles songs included "From Me To You", "Money", "I Saw Her Standing There", and "Roll Over Beethoven".
