Comments: Over 60 minutes long, this album was more a document of the Beatles 1964 antipodean tour. The album captures the words of the Fab Four as they made their way through the madness of a continent obsessed with all they had to offer. From the sharp cockiness of the early press conferences to the fatigued boredom of later interviews.

Also contains "Message From England" actually recorded in Abbey Road September 1963 for Australian radio stations.

This C.D. is almost exactly the same as the 1982 album The Beatles Talk Downunder (1964), and it has been re-issued under various guises on many occasions since.
