Background: The Beatles appeared on BBC radio programs more than 50 times between 1962 and 1965 and during that time, they performed more than 80 songs, 36 of which were never released on their albums.
For years, some of the material appeared on bootlegs, but in 1994, the band’s label worked to release a definitive collection of material, offering a diverse selection of songs with surprisingly good sound quality, given that the BBC did not save tapes of the sessions themselves.
The resulting album, Live at the BBC, was released as a 2 LP set only in the UK for a limited time and included 69 tracks.
From 1962 to 1965, the Beatles made 52 appearances on the BBC, recording live-in-the-studio performances of both their official releases and several dozen songs that they never issued on disc. This magnificent two-disc compilation features 56 of these tracks, including 29 covers of early rock, R&B, soul, and pop tunes that never appeared on their official releases, as well as the Lennon-McCartney original “I’ll Be on My Way,” which they gave in 1963 to Billy J. Kramer rather than record it themselves. These performances are nothing less than electrifying, especially the previously unavailable covers, which feature quite a few versions of classics by Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley.
