Background: The three volumes in the Anthology series by the Beatles, named Anthology 1, Anthology 2, and Anthology 3, were the first official releases of material from the EMI/Apple vaults that had long appeared only on bootleg recordings.
The three albums were issued to accompany the release of the Beatles Anthology documentary that aired in 1995.
Anthology 1 was released in 1995 and appeared on vinyl only in the UK. Volumes 2 and 3 were issued in 1996 and were released on vinyl in both the UK and the U.S.
The sets consisted of early demo recordings, early live recordings, and studio outtakes, and all three albums in the series reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.
