The Beatles Anthology is the name of a series of three albums, all of which focus on the history of The Beatles.
The Anthology consists of three double music albums, each containing two CDs or three vinyl discs of never-before-released Beatles material (although many of the tracks had appeared on bootleg vinyl and CD for many years prior).
Anthology 1 (was released on November 20, 1995) included music recorded by The Quarrymen, the famous Decca Records audition tapes, and various out-takes and demos from the band's first four albums. It also included the song "Lend Me Your Comb", omitted from the collection 'Live at the BBC', released the previous year (1994).
On March 17, 1996, Anthology 2 was released. The second collection presented out-takes and demos from the Beatles' sessions for Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Magical Mystery Tour. These included selected early demos and takes for Lennon's "Strawberry Fields Forever", previously available only to bootleg collectors.
On October 28, 1996, Anthology 3 was released. The third collection featured out-takes and demos from The White Album,
Abbey Road, and Let It Be.
