Additional information

Between March 1962 and June 1965, the Beatles played songs on 52 shows broadcsat nationwide by the BBC's Light Programme. British pop fans who tuned to Saturday Club , Easy Beat , Top Gear or Pop Go The Bealtes were treated to exclusive radio performances of both the familiar hits and the more unusual material from the group's eclectic pre-fame repertoire. Taken from the album Live At The BBC , Baby It's You is augmented on this EP by three radio recordings that are released here for the first time.

Baby It's You

Pop Go The Beatles
Trans. 11 June 1963
Recorded BBC Paris Theatre, London, 1 June 1963
Producer Terry Henebery

Great admirers of the American girl-groups of the early sixites, they covered this American Top Ten hit for the Shirelles on their first album Please Please Me . This BBC interpretation has a cute ending rather than the familiar fade-out on the record.

I'll Follow The Sun
(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

Top Gear
Trans. 26 November 1964
Recorded Playhouse Theatre, London, 17 November 1964
Producer Bernie Andrews

Released on Beatles For Sale , I'll Follow The Sun was featured, along with three other songs from the album, during their second appearance with Brain Matthew on his late night show Top Gear .

(There's A) Devil In Her Heart

Pop Go The Beatles
Trans. 20 August 1963
Recorded BBC Paris Theatre, London, 16 July 1963
Producer Terry Henebery

The marathon BBC session of 16 July 1963 - eighteen songs for three programmes - gave an opportunity to try out this song by girl-group The Donays and two days later the EMI version was taped for the second album With The Beatles .


Pop Go The Beatles
Trans. 25 June 1963
Recorded BBC Maida Vale Studios, 17 June 1963
Producer Terry Henebery

The Shirelles' original was on the flip-side of their biggest British hit Will You Love Me Tomorrow . The Beatles' first album includes Boys and this BBC take was selected from the seven occasions they recorded it for the radio.
