The Beatles in Italy is a Beatles compilation album released in Italy in 1965
(Parlophon). Despite its title, The Beatles in Italy is not a live album, but,
rather, a compilation of previously released studio recordings. The album was
issued in Italy in 1965 to capitalize on the band's appearance in Italy during
their 1965 European tour, and the release of the film, Help! Instead of
consisting of songs that they sang in Italy, the album consists entirely of
single and EP tracks that had not been collected into an LP. All original copies
of the LP were in mono.
The Beatles in Italy was reasonably popular for Parlophone, first appearing on
the red label and later on the black label. EMI's Israeli affiliate was
impressed enough with the compilation that they released it there, albeit
without the gatefold cover that it sported in Italy. In 1969, when EMI
affiliates were adopting a more standard look, the Italian company switched to a
more standard Parlophone/EMI label, and the LP was reissued again—along with the
rest of the catalog. Still, most fans worldwide were unaware of the compilation.
The record probably would have remained obscure had not John Lennon, in a 1970
Rolling Stone interview, speculated that there might have been a live album
released in Italy. "There's one in Italy apparently, that somebody recorded
As the years passed, imported copies of the album continued to attract the
interest of Beatles collectors. It was eventually issued in Japan (Odeon
EAS-81525) and the Netherlands (Parlophone 1A 062-04632), when (in the
mid-1980s) the album was issued in stereo.
