Stockholm Television "Drop In"

Six days after the Swedish radio performance on October 30 1963, The Beatles taped a television performance in Sweden on the Sveriges TV show "Drop In" hosted by Klas Burling. The original idea was to have the Beatles perform two songs for the show.
During the telecast the two songs performed included the latest single "She Loves You" with the last song for the first LP, the Isley Brothers' cover of "Twist And Shout". Watching the telecast, it is amazing at how close the audience is to the Beatles. This, of course, would change dramatically in a very short period of time as Beatlemania would take over.
The host of the show then asks the Beatles to perform "one more". They do so as they play the first song from the first LP, the original "I Saw Her Standing There" sung mainly by Paul. In the background during this song, you can see the other guests getting ready to perform the final closing theme. Once again, as the two co-host start to join hands for the final closing theme, Mr. Burling once again asks the Beatles for another song !! This is followed by a shortened version of the Little Richard number "Long Tall Sally".
The entire show has shown up on a bootleg vinyl LP entitled simply "Stockholm". It can be found on CD under the title "In Case You Don't Know".
The first two songs plus the intro exists on video and the last two songs are available commercially on the "Anthology" VHS and DVD packages by Apple.
I've thrown up a link to the entire show (of various quality).
