Beatles Tapes VI: Rock & Religion 1966 Audio ClipsThis historic documentary series continues with The Beatles Tapes VI. This latest release focuses almost exclusively on the events leading up to the first concert in Chicago on August 12, 1966 – most notably the infamous “Bigger than Jesus” controversy that raged in the American south during that summer.

This new collection of rare interviews, fan sound bites, retrospective reflections and more is a fascinating compilation of disparate elements: a press conference on the day of the Chicago show; exclusive reminiscences from Barry Tashian of The Remains (opening act on this tour): and pre-concert interviews inside the International Amphitheater before the concert.

The Beatles: John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, George Harrison.

Recorded from August 1 1966 to August 30 1966, and with Barry Tashian, May 2001.
