Product Description
Digitally remastered two CD set containing previously-unreleased BBC recordings by John, Paul, George and Ringo. In the studios of the British Broadcasting Corporation, The Beatles performed music for a variety of radio shows. Live at the BBC presents the sound of The Beatles seizing their moment to play for the nation. Although the songs were recorded ahead of broadcast, allowing for retakes and occasional overdubbing, they are essentially “live in studio” performances. Most of the songs are cover versions of material from the late 1950s and early 1960s. This series presents the Fab Four at their most raw, exciting and energetic.
The surviving members of the Fab Four spent much of the 1990s belatedly reuniting to document, promote, and occasionally awkwardly burnish their unparalleled pop music legacy. This double-disc anthology of live-in-the-studio performances originally recorded specifically for the BBC during the most frantic years of early Beatlemania was the first chapter in that effort and the first issuance of previously unreleased Beatles recordings since the late ’70s. In many ways, it remains the most artistically revealing. Capturing them at their early ’60s live-performance peak, these recordings pay homage to both the band’s eclectic musical influences (including Chuck Berry, Phil Spector, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Larry Williams, the Coasters, and the Shirelles), and to the enthusiastic and generous sense of musical discovery and the pop proselytizing that accompanied them. A number of the Fabs’ own ’62-’65 singles and album tracks are also featured, but they mostly take a back seat to the generous collection of previously unreleased cover songs included here. The band’s brisk, often irreverent sense of humor also comes to fore in the intros, interviews, and between-song banter. An indispensable part of any true Beatlemaniac’s collection and a superb introduction to the roots of a musical legend. –Jerry McCulley –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
