Stockholm Radio

The Beatles flew into Stockholm, Sweden on October 23 1963 and were recorded the next day October 24 1963 for a live radio performance. The location of the concert was at the Karlaplanstudion in Stockholm. The concert was broadcast a couple of weeks later on the Sveriges radio, channel one.
Seven songs from this concert are available either commercially or on bootleg recordings. The concert starts off with a count-in by Paul and they perform "I Saw Her Standing There" from the first LP. This is followed by the third single "From Me To You" with the vocals shared between John and Paul.
The next three numbers are from the upcoming second LP (which was not released at the time of the performance and broadcast). All three of them are also cover songs. "Money (That's What I Want)" is sung by John and originally performed by Barrett Strong. Next is "Roll Over Beethoven" sung by George and originally performed by Chuck Berry. The last of the three covers is the only concert performance of this song entitled "You Really Got A Hold On Me" sung mainly by John and originally performed by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.
The Beatles finish off the concert with their latest single "She Loves You" with vocals shared between John and Paul and finally they play the Isley Brothers cover "Twist and Shout" sung by John from the first LP.
It is interested to note that the amps used for this show were not the usual Vox amps but were Fender amps lent to the Beatles by the local group in Stockholm. This is why the recording has a bit of an "edge" to the sound.
This concert can be found on a couple of bootleg vinyl LPs: "Sweden '63" and "Airtime", it can also be found on the bootleg CD: "Stars of '63"
Some of the songs above can also be found commercially on the Apple 3-LP/2-CD "Anthology 1" with the following tunes: "I Saw Her Standing There", "From Me To You", "Money (That's What I Want)", "You Really Got A Hold On Me" and "Roll Over Beethoven".
