From the White Album to the end, the last days of the Beatles weren't smooth, which made the fact that they still produced some astonishing music all the more remarkable. In abbreviated form, "What's the New Mary Jane" is finally issued here, and proves underwhelming. For the rest of the set, it's largely down to outtakes and demos, but this time there isn't the same insight of the previous two volumes. Anthology 3 comes dangerously close to the sound of barrels being scraped. That said, it's the Beatles, and in whatever form, the music still shines brilliantly. --Chris Nickson

Some of the album's tracks taken from the band's impromptu (and final) show at the Apple HQ's rooftop, meanwhile, are quite a treat, with the band members (plus Billy Preston) seemed to enjoy performing.
All in all, the album presents a lot of different sounds and different styles, you want to imagine they're playing in another band.Read more ›
-This compilation features a number of tracks that never saw the light of day until the release of this compilation (except on bootlegs.) Among these are Beginning and Not Guilty.
-You get early demo versions of songs from the band's latter years, including acoustic demos of George Harrison's classics While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Something.
-The compilation features two discs of nothing but rare material, making it ideal to any big time Beatles fan.
-There are even early rare demos of songs the band members would perform in their solo careers, such as Paul McCartney's Junk and Teddy Boy, and George Harrison's All Things Must Pass.
-The original Beatles demo of Come and Get It, the song that Paul McCartney wrote for classic rockers Badfinger, can be found in this set.
-Stores tend to jack up the prices of Beatles recordings, as well as the prices of two-disc recordings, and since this is both of those things, expect to pay quite a bit for it.
-Because of the price, I can only recommend this set to big fans of the band - this is NOT a good starting place if you're new to the band.
Overall this is another good Anthology set, but as I previously stated, if you're new to the band, start elsewhere (Please Please Me or Past Masters Volume One are the ideal starting points for new fans (don't bother with hits compilations - The Beatles are NOT a greatest hits band!)) To put it simply - recommended to big fans, but not casual fans.
