Live at "Atlanta Stadium" 65

During the Beatles 1965 North American tour, they played the Atlanta Stadium on August 18 1965. This particular concert was recorded by the local radio station WQXI on this date.
The songs for this show consists of "Twist And Shout", "She's A Woman", "I Feel Fine", "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", "Ticket To Ride", "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Baby's In Black", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "Help!" and "I'm Down". Note that "A Hard Day's Night" was also on the set list but it was not recorded that night / or it was not broadcast probably.
The only song change from the Shea Stadium show was Ringo's number. When at Shea, he sang "Act Naturally" but it would seem that the crowd was a little baffled by the number. When it was performed, the song had not yet been released in North America and this is probably why the number was changed back to "I Wanna Be Your Man". Too bad.
This show can be found on various CD bootlegs including: "Atlanta 65", "Atlanta/Munich/Seattle" as well as "Vinyl To The Core".
Here's the audio of the show:
