On January 12th 1964, the night after finishing a 16–night run at London’s Finsbury Park Astoria, the Beatles made their 2nd appearance on the prestigious Sunday Night At The London Palladium TV show performing a five-song set.

The following day they flew to Paris and on the 14th, they were on stage again playing a warm-up show at the Cinéma  Cyrano in Versailles, ahead of an 18-day residency at the Paris Olympia Theatre.

Comparing French to English audiences, Paul commented at the time, “In England the
audiences are seventy-five percent female. Here, seventy-five percent male. And that's the main difference, really. Because they still appreciate it, but you don't get the full noise and the atmosphere of a place. No screams."

The sound quality of the French shows from ORTF radio and TV is excellent, but the London Palladium set, recorded direct off air, is poor.
