There are plans to release a new collection of music from the Beatles, culled from the band’s BBC sessions, including commercially unreleased recordings and studio chatter. The release will be a follow-up to the hugely successful ‘Live at the BBC’ album, which was released back in 1994.
The new compilation will be released on CD and vinyl this November, and includes audio taken from BBC radio broadcasts in 1963 and 1964. The recordings are said to be relaxed and informal and include both early Lennon-McCartney compositions, and cover versions of songs by rock pioneers like Chuck Berry.
The upcoming release will include different versions of some of the songs from the first Live at the BBC album. There will also be a re-mastered version of the earlier album released in November.
We wonder if The Beatles still have their huge appeal, having topped record charts with the 1994 release, selling more than 5 million copies worldwide in the first six weeks?
