Format: Audio CD
There are some treasures on this set:
The demo recordings at George Harrison's Esher home included on this set show The Beatles' genius at being able to develop an idea and turn it into a song. It is also a great experience to be able to listen in on the rehearsal for John's simple song Goodnight.
The widely-distributed bootleg of George singing While My Guitar Gently Weeps, with accompaniment by Paul on organ is included, as is George's early version of All Things Must Pass. The Beatles made about 100 takes of Not Guilty, but eventually decided not to include it on their double album. It is a better song than some that did make it into the 1968 White album, and worth hearing how it was done by The Beatles, though you can also hear George's own version on his 1979 eponymously named album.
Rumours have it that the original version of Let It Be [originally named Get Back] will be released in 2003. But you can hear some of the original album here with the singalong version of Teddy Boy [with John's sarcastic comments in the background], the shorter version of I Me Mine, the original arrangement of Dig A Pony and the simpler version of Long and Winding Road.
Because sounds stunning as an a cappella version: it must be the most inventive vocal harmony The Beatles ever sang.
Highly recommended: you won't want to listen to this album every day, but it is fun to dig it out and play these alternative versions from time to time.

This double cd of out-takes and demos is almost like Beatles Unplugged. The sound is out of this world and the songs are ever better! I wasn't sure whether to get this as I have all the albums anyway but I'm so glad I did. There almost like different songs here! If your a beatle fan, you NEED to own this.

Format: Audio CD
This is probably the most "no-frills" anthology, since there are no "discovered" John Lennon demos which the 3 surviving Beatles overdubbed parts on and no CD single promoting this CD.
This features an entire CD full of the White Album sessions with many never before released songs like "Not Guilty", "Step Inside Love", and "What's the New Mary Jane". It also features great sounding demos like "Don't Pass Me By", "Hey Jude", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Glass Onion" (with some hilariously bizarre touches!) and Julia (it's a scream to hear Paul interrupt John by giving him advice!).
The 2nd CD features highlights from the Let It Be and Abbey Road sessions. Premonition makes its way here as there are songs included later to make it onto solo records like "Teddy Boy" and "All Things Must Pass". Highlights include "I Me Mine", "Oh! Darling", "Come and Get It", "Because" and of course "The End". Best line: "You bounder! You cheat!" Enjoy this collection, since there won't be more rarities from the Beatles any time soon.

Some of the songs on this collection are near identical to the ones already released so why the omissions? No Child of Nature, Sour Milk Sea or Circles from the Esher Sessions or Suzy Parker from the Get Back sessions... also Helter skelter fades far too early (it was about 25 mins long)and missed a lot of the band improvising. Apart from that worth it for the acoustic While My Guitar Gently Weeps..

This is the third and final volume of the Beatles "Anthology" - a double CD set featuring 50 tracks, released in 1996. It follows on from Anthology 1 and Anthology 2. The music presented here is from the period 1968 to 1970, and is a compilation of alternative takes, rehearsals, live performances and demos, including the likes of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "Octopus's Garden" and "Come Together". Nothing featured on the album had previously been released by the Beatles in the form it's heard here. Rather, this album represents an opportunity to listen to the Beatles in a slightly new way. There's also several songs that had never been released at all by the Beatles - including "What's the New Mary Jane" and "Come and Get It".

The "Anthology" project was a major contribution to music - consisting of three double albums, new singles, a documentary series (The Beatles Anthology [DVD] [1995]), and a book (The Beatles Anthology). It aimed to present the history of the Beatles, in a new an more intimate manner, in chronological order. Included with this album is a deluxe 42 page booklet - providing information of the songs, as well as lots of photos of the band.

If you're a fan of the Beatles, I thoroughly recommend this collection.
