Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple Box Set (Audio CD)this is a fine collection, but where are the rest of LPs, like Elephant's Memory, Raga, David Peel, Lon and Derek Van Eaton, Iveys, Shankar, etc ...? all with beatles involved playing or producing, and also why not a complete collection of The Apple Singles A+Bs not included in any LP?, well this is better than nothing

You're right, it's not complete. I don't count Beatles/solo Beatles as Apple releases, as they were under contract to EMI. Use of the Apple label on the discs was a concession - they tended to have EMI catalogue numbers (though not always, eg the Zapple LPs).
In fact, when you look closely, the omissions are not many, which is doubly frustrating since they could have completed the set! These are the album omissions, which I think are not too important:
* Maybe Tomorrow, by The Iveys - this was not originally released in Britain or the US, so its status as "missing" is arguable. Every track on this LP is included in the set however, many of them on Magic Christian Music.
* Cometogether - soundtrack LP released in the US (no involvement from Apple - just a licencing arrangement.)
* El Topo - soundtrack LP released in the US (no involvement from Apple - just a licencing arrangement.)
* Mary Hopkin, Those Were The Days - an Apple singles compilation.
* Phil Spector's Christmas Album - Originally just a re-issue by Apple. No real connection.
* Badfinger, The Best of Badfinger / Very Best of Badfinger. Both are fairly recent CD-only comps. No real need for them here.
Added to these are a few more which don't seem too great a loss (depending on how you see things!):
* All of Yoko's albums. (These seem to have been sectioned off from the discography previously, and have been released elsewhere on CD.)
* The Concert for Bangladesh - various artists (most non-Apple) live, and available elsewhere on CD
These are the REAL omissions, which should have been included:
* Elephant's Memory by Elephant's Memory
* Raga by Ravi Shankar [Original LP released in the US only]
* David Peel, The Pope Smokes Dope [Original LP released in the US only]
* Lon & Derrek Van Eaton, Brother
* Ravi Shankar/Ali Akbar Kahn, In Concert 1972 [This was released on CD when Apple's first re-issue series came out]
All of these came out in 1971/2 - it's as if the compilers just drew a line and said that's as late as they would go. They did release later Badfinger stuff though - it's all a bit odd why these have been excluded.

Perfect list of Apple singles. A complete collection of Apple recordings would be fine.

Pete Best says:
I purchased (I know it's shamefull of me!) the Complete Apple Singles Collection which consisted of 15 discs, some of the tracks were obviously needle drops but it's still a wonderfull collection till Apple Inc manage to get their act together.

David Liddell says:
I can live without Elephant's Memory. All these whinging completists need to realise if all their precious omissions were to be included, the price would have to be considerably hiked up. Surprised the project even saw the light of day at 150 quid a throw.

Wayne Klein says:
Although it wasn't released until the CD era, the version of "Do You Mind" on the reissue of the "Ass" CD by Badfinger is a different take and is MIA as well.

John T Reeder III says:
Those other records were not included because the project was not called "The COMPLETE HISTORY OF APPLE RECORDS".

Mr. D. I. Longstaff says:
the apple lp that should be there is twist by the toenail twisters,it is on apple and is a double lp,from 1971,and i have never ever seen it or heard it referenced anywhere,is it a bootleg of mad freeform jazz or do i have a test pressing.It it Apple and has the regular Apple picture label on sides 1 and 3 and the cut slice on 2 and 4...if it is rare,i wish i had looked after it better...and j.l. in the sleeve notes suggests john lennon's involvement if not directly.
