Anthology 3
Anthology 3


The third and last album off the Anthology project, Anthology 3 spans from the recording of the White Album to the end of the Beatles.

Anthology 3 marks how the Beatles declined to its end. Marathon recording sessions of the White Album, ill-fated Get Back/Let It Be sessions, rooftop concert and the final sessions of Abbey Road are all presented here, proving how the band became more mature over time and showing how the musical and business differences and families may be the cause to the break-up of the Beatles. The love they take is equal to the love they make, and the Beatles is always the 20th Century's greatest band.
