In January 1973, two pirated Beatles box sets appeared in the United States, Alpha Omega Volumes I & II: The Story Of The Beatles (Audio Tape Inc. ATRBH 3583). These four-LP collections were advertised on TV and radio stations in the Midwest and were sold by mail order. Instead of taking legal action, Capitol Records countered by putting out two official Beatles anthologies, The Beatles 1962-1966 (US: Apple SKBO 3403) and The Beatles 1967-1970 (US: Apple SKBO 3404). However, in March, a $15 million lawsuit was filed by manager Allen Klein on behalf of George Harrison, along with Capitol and Apple Records, against the manufacturers and distributors of the bootleg package, and against American Broadcasting Companies, Inc., who had been advertising it.

March: Four-LP boxed set Alpha Omega (Volume 1) (Audio Tape Inc. ATRBH-3583 sold via mail order)
March: Four-LP boxed set Alpha Omega (Volume 2) (Audio Tape Inc. ATRBH, no catalog number)

Great set and a lot more representative of the band's career than the conventional Red & Blue albums. Just one question; why were there two completely different Volume 2 sets? It would have made more sense if someone at the record company just titled the altered version "Volume 3"! Oh, well, all 3 versions of Alpha Omega are nifty.
