3 October

It will be released along with a new book, "The Beatles: The BBC Archives: 1962-1970,’" written by Kevin Howlett, author of "The Beatles at the Beeb 1962-1965" and "The Beatles at the BBC."  The book is scheduled to be in stores on 10 October.

I knew about the book but I didn't realize there was an album involved. Just when I think I have everything I want! I love the BBC era so I am really looking forward to both items. Then I can stop. Really.

Most of the BBC stuff was released on the previous well known album. My guess is that an new album would consist of a few not officially released things plus other takes on songs The Beatles took from their albums. By the way, the complete radio stuff was once uploaded in the bootleg section.

Yes, I'm quite certain, unless they decide to release "Let it Be" on DVD. I'll make an exception for that.  ;)

Lay's Potato Chips commercial from the late 1960s.

I remember that Barry! It's true, for Lay's potato chips and Beatles stuff. But after I thought about it I did get to wondering what else there might be that I haven't found on YouTube. It's kind of been like a treasure hunt these past few years. Cor, I remember what you said back when I was new here and mentioned "Live at the BBC": "I'm very happy with the set. But somehow it was frustrating too. I had been collecting the songs from the BBC sessions for years, especially the ones that had never been released officially before, like Clarabella and Soldier Of Love. And suddenly it was all released, well, most of it."
Now I understand that better!  :)

The first time I listened to this I had borrowed it from the library. I wasn't sure if I'd like it because I didn't know a lot of the songs. Well, it had me hooked from "I'm Ringo and I play the drums"! I always loved the Beatles but this is what made me want to dig deeper.

I'll get these at some point, as I've only heard the original, which is going to be remastered also.

I prefer to pay for things. Is there much chance of a 3rd volume?

We seem to be getting "new" Beatle music every 3-4 years, there's enough material to expand the Anthology series too...

Ten of On Air’s songs were never recorded by the group for EMI in the 1960s, including two making their debuts with the new release: The Beatles’ direct-to-air performance of Chuck Berry’s “I’m Talking About You” and a rocking cover of the standard “Beautiful Dreamer.” On Air also includes different versions of six rarities heard on the 1994 BBC collection: Little Richard’s “Lucille,” Chuck Berry’s “Memphis, Tennessee,” Chan Romero’s “The Hippy Hippy Shake,” Ray Charles’ “I Got A Woman,” and two songs they learned from records by Carl Perkins, “Glad All Over” and “Sure To Fall.”

The Beatles’ tribute to the BBC’s most important pop show of the early ’60s – “Happy Birthday, Dear Saturday Club” – is another surprise. As John Lennon recalled in 1980, “We did a lot of tracks that were never on record for Saturday Club – they were well recorded, too.” Paul remembers, “We’d been raised on the BBC radio programs. One of the big things in our week was Saturday Club – this great show was playing the kind of music we loved, so that was something we really aspired to.”

Between March 1962 and June 1965, no fewer than 275 unique musical performances by The Beatles were broadcast by the BBC in the U.K. The group played songs on 39 radio shows in 1963 alone. Ringo Starr said in 1994, “You tend to forget that we were a working band. It’s that mono sound. There were usually no overdubs. We were in at the count-in and that was it. I get excited listening to them.” On their busiest BBC day, July 16, 1963, The Beatles recorded 18 songs for three editions of their Pop Go The Beatles series in fewer than seven hours.

The group played 88 distinct songs in their BBC sessions – some were recorded many times; others performed just once. At the time, three national BBC stations provided all daytime radio broadcasting in the U.K. Only the Light Programme network might occasionally play a record. Most broadcast music was live music. Consequently, to promote their releases, The Beatles had to play live at the BBC. “Everything was done instantly,” remembered George Harrison, “But before that, we used to drive 200 miles in an old van down the M1, come into London, try and find the BBC and then set up and do the program. Then we’d probably drive back to Newcastle for a gig in the evening!”

On Air also features BBC recordings of 30 well-loved songs from The Beatles’ catalogue, including five number on¬es and other favorites such as: “I Saw Her Standing There,” “Twist And Shout,” “Do You Want To Know A Secret,” “Boys,” “Please Mister Postman,” “Money,” “And I Love Her,” and “If I Fell.”

Like its critically acclaimed predecessor, On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2 includes audio of The Beatles talking to DJs Brian Matthew and Alan Freeman and Pop Go The Beatles hosts Lee Peters and Rodney Burke. When first broadcast, pop fans were amazed to hear such witty irreverence on the rather formal BBC and it is great fun to hear these extracts now. In addition, On Air releases, for the first time, the group’s candid interviews for the Pop Profile series recorded in November 1965 and May 1966.

Newly remastered for reissue on November 11, The Beatles’ first Live at the BBC album sounds and looks better than ever. This collection of the group’s BBC sessions mixed versions of their hits with a treasure trove of 30 songs The Beatles performed on air but never released on record in the 1960s. The compelling track list ranged from a rare performance of the little known Lennon-McCartney original “I’ll Be On My Way” to covers of classic rock ’n’ roll and contemporary rhythm and blues songs. At the time of its release, Live at the BBC was hailed by Rolling Stone as “an exhilarating portrait of a band in the process of shaping its own voice and vision.” It earned a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Historical Album.

Live at the BBC was assembled by George Martin in 1994 and On Air - Live at the BBC Volume Two was compiled and researched by producers Kevin Howlett and Mike Heatley. Both albums have been meticulously mastered by engineers Guy Massey and Alex Wharton at Abbey Road Studios. The booklets for both collections include Kevin Howlett’s essays on the history of The Beatles’ BBC radio sessions and his detailed commentaries on all of the tracks.

Details on the tracklist:

 Tracklisting CD1

        And Here We Are Again
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 23 July 1963
        Rec: 24 May 1963
        Studio Two, Aeolian Hall, London
        Producer: Terry Henebery
        During the summer of 1963, fifteen editions of Pop Go The Beatles were broadcast on Tuesday evenings at five o’ clock. Rodney Burke presented the series from July to September. Having gained experience as an actor in Canada for two years, he auditioned for the BBC in July 1957. Credited as Rodney Bunker, he was seen in the TV series Hawkeye And The Last Of The Mohicans.
        Words Of Love (Holly)
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 20 August 1963
        Rec: 16 July 1963
        BBC Paris Theatre, London
        Producer: Terry Henebery
        ‘Words Of Love’ was released in the UK on an album called Buddy Holly in July 1958. This BBC recording was broadcast fifteen months before the song’s inclusion on Beatles For Sale. John and Paul sang the two-part harmony which, through primitive but effective overdubbing, Buddy had sung with himself.
        How About It, Gorgeous?
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 30 July 1963
        Rec: 10 July 19633
        Studio Two, Aeolian Hall, London 3
        Producer: Terry Henebery3
        The Pop Go The Beatles format included The Beatles reading some of the many letters sent to the BBC. George reads one referring to The Flowerpot Men. This was a puppet show for children broadcast from 1952 on the BBC’s television service. The lead characters, whose bodies were formed from flowerpots, were Bill and Ben. Many generations of British children have deciphered the ‘flobalobalob’ sounds of the Flowerpot Men. After adventures in the garden, Bill and Ben returned to slumber inside flowerpots on either side of their friend and protector Little Weed.
        Do You Want To Know A Secret (Lennon-McCartney)
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 30 July 1963
        Rec: 10 July 1963
        Studio Two, Aeolian Hall, London
        Producer: Terry Henebery
        This is the last of six radio performances of a song from The Beatles’ debut album Please Please Me. At the time of the broadcast, ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret’ was at the top of the British EP chart as one of the four tracks on Twist And Shout. A version recorded by Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas reached number one in several British music papers’ charts in June. In America, as the A-side of a Beatles single on the Vee-Jay label, ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret’ peaked at number two behind Louis Armstrong’s ‘Hello, Dolly’ in May 1964.
        Lucille (Collins-Penniman)
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 17 September 1963
        Rec: 3 September 1963
        Studio Two, Aeolian Hall, London
        Producer: Ian Grant
        Little Richard’s rocker made the UK Top Ten during the summer of 1957. This is the first recording The Beatles made for the BBC. Their other broadcast version of ‘Lucille’, taped four days later for Saturday Club, was included in the first volume of Live At The BBC.
        Hey, Paul...
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 25 June 1963
        Rec: 17 June 1963
        Studio Five, BBC Maida Vale, London
        Producer: Terry Henebery
        For the initial four-week run of Pop Go The Beatles, the presenter was Lee Peters (or ‘Pee Litres’, as The Beatles liked to call him). His was a familiar voice on the network. He played the character of David Owen in the daily soap opera The Dales, first broadcast in January 1948 as Mrs Dale’s Diary. Here, he encourages Paul to talk about his birthday party in a session recorded the day before it was due to happen. ‘Harry and His Box’ was an enigmatic topic raised during several Beatles radio appearances in 1963.
        Anna (Go To Him) (Alexander)
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 27 August 1963
        Rec: 1 August 1963
        BBC Playhouse Theatre, Manchester
        Producer: Ian Grant
        Written and recorded by country-soul singer Arthur Alexander, ‘Anna’ was an American Top Ten R&B hit at the end of 1962. Following the single’s UK release in December 1962, The Beatles taped the song a couple of months later at Abbey Road for their debut album Please Please Me.
        Hello!
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 25 June 1963
        Rec: 17 June 1963
        Studio Five, BBC Maida Vale, London
        Producer: Terry Henebery
        For Pop Go The Beatles, Lee Peters acted the role of a posh BBC straight man apparently struggling to keep order amongst the send-ups and antics of the cheeky Liverpudlians.
        Please Please Me (Lennon-McCartney)
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 13 August 1963
        Rec: 16 July 1963
        BBC Paris Theatre, London
        Producer: Ian Grant
        This is the eleventh of twelve BBC radio performances of their first UK number one (on most charts, including that used by the BBC). None of the broadcast versions has John playing harmonica as heard on the Parlophone single.
        Misery (Lennon-McCartney)
        Here We Go
        Trans: 12 March 1963
        Rec: 6 March 1963
        BBC Playhouse Theatre, Manchester
        Producer: Peter Pilbeam
        The Beatles recorded this song from their debut album seven times at the BBC. All of the broadcast performances lack the descending piano runs overdubbed by George Martin onto the version made at EMI for Please Please Me.
        I’m Talking About You (Berry)
        Saturday Club
        Trans: 16 March 1963 Live
        Studio 3A, Broadcasting House, London
        Producers: Jimmy Grant and Bernie Andrews
        Chess Records released Chuck Berry’s song in February 1961. It arrived on a single in the UK seven months later and was then featured on the LP Juke Box Hits in June 1962. This BBC version was performed live from the Saturday Club on-air studio. Their songs for the show could not be pre-recorded as usual, because a heavy cold had made it impossible for John to sing.
        A Real Treat
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 25 June 1963
        Rec: 17 June 1963
        Studio Five, BBC Maida Vale, London
        Producer: Terry Henebery
        Although he always mispronounced Ringo’s name as ‘Ring-oh’, The Beatles responded well to the corny links of Lee Peters. Paul is heard pointing out that the request was for pupils at the sister school to the establishment he attended - the Liverpool Institute.
        Boys (Dixon-Farrell)
        Pop Go The Beatles
        Trans: 25 June 1963
        Rec: 17 June 1963

        The Shirelles’ original was the flip-side of the biggest of their three British hits - ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’. The single topped the American charts - one of 22 pop hits scored by The Shirelles in the States. This Pop Go The Beatles recording was released in 1995 on an EP of four BBC performances called Baby It’s You.

        When the fourth show of the Pop Go The Beatles series was broadcast, the BBC’s weekly magazine Radio Times reported that ‘two days after the first broadcast, the producer Terry Henebery received over one hundred cards from listeners all over the country expressing their delight that this remarkable group now have their own programme’. The production team were swamped with many more letters as the weeks went by. Here ‘Gorgeous George’ steps up to the microphone to read one.

        The original by The Cookies - female backing singers on many other Gerry Goffin and Carole King hits on the Dimension label - was in the US Top 40 when The Beatles first tried ‘Chains’ in a BBC studio in January 1963. George had bought The Cookies’ single at NEMS, the Liverpool record store run by the group’s manager Brian Epstein. This is The Beatles’ third BBC performance of a song included on their LP Please Please Me.

        Paul was inspired to sing this highlight from The Music Man by Peggy Lee’s UK Top Thirty hit from April 1961. Meredith Willson’s Broadway show had a long run on stage from 1957 and was then adapted for a movie version released in 1962. Having been part of the group’s stage act for two years, ‘Till There Was You’ was released on With The Beatles in November 1963. A later recording made for the radio show From Us To You was included on the first volume of Live At The BBC.

        Although not a hit, ‘The Hippy Hippy Shake’ by Chan Romero became popular in Liverpool when DJ Bob Wooler played it at The Cavern Club. He recalled lending his copy of the UK Columbia single to Paul so the group could learn it. When The Beatles appeared on the BBC TV programme Juke Box Jury in December 1963, they reviewed ‘The Hippy Shake’ by their Mersey mates The Swinging Blue Jeans. Their unanimous judgement that it would be a hit proved to be true, both in the UK and America. Chan Romero had recorded his song in 1959 at Gold Star studio in Los Angeles with the same musicians who played on ‘La Bamba’ by his hero Ritchie Valens.

        In December 1961, The Marvelettes’ record on the Tamla label was the first American pop number one for Berry Gordy’s Motown company. American hits issued on Tamla and Motown struggled to be heard on the BBC in the early sixties. When The Beatles became successful, they were tireless champions of the labels’ artists, particularly Marvin Gaye, The Miracles and Mary Wells.

        The song was written in the mid-nineteenth century by American writer Stephen Foster. Recordings by crooners Bing Crosby and Al Jolson ensured ‘Beautiful Dreamer’ remained a popular standard in the next century. In the late fifties, there was a trend for reviving ‘oldies’ by adding a faster rhythm. Tony Orlando’s ‘Beautiful Dreamer’, updated by songwriters Gerry Goffin and Jack Keller, was released in the UK at the end of 1962. A few weeks later The Beatles’ cover of his single, including all the changes to the original lyric and its added ‘hully-gully’ beat, was recorded for Saturday Club.

        ‘Twist And Shout’ made its initial impact through a single by The Isley Brothers. The Beatles’ characteristic falsetto whoops had been sparked by Little Richard, but the vocal gymnastics on the Isleys’ ‘Twist And Shout’ and their earlier American hit ‘Shout’ also influenced the group’s sound in 1963. The Beatles used ‘Twist And Shout’ as the rousing closer of their debut album and many live shows. They performed it nine times in BBC radio studios. This version was recorded on a day when, in less than seven hours, they recorded eighteen songs for three Pop Go The Beatles programmes.

Their first BBC version was included on the first collection of radio songs in 1994. This is the other recording made two weeks later. The Beatles all loved the music of Carl Perkins and each of them sang one of his songs at the BBC.

Just joined the site, principally to see and hear the build up and reaction to Mark Lewisohn's book (currently on Amazon at a considerably reduced price) and Live at the BBC Volume 2.
As my favourite post-'Let It Be' release under the group's name was Volume 1, I'll be one of the first in the queue for Volume 2.

Welcome

tbh Im not excited about the Lewisham books, but cant wait for the BBC CD, I liked the Recording sessions book as that was informative about the music but I dont need to know where they were or what time George took a crap on 3rd June 1965 :D

I'm probably more excited about Volume One of Lewisohn's book than the other two.  I was fascinated by the chapter intros in his "The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-by-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career" for the years through 1962.  Information like when they couldn't stay in Manchester to see if they won a battle of the bands because they couldn't afford a hotel room and had to catch a train back to Liverpool is great stuff and transports me to a whole new world in late 50s/early 60s Britain regarding the Beatles.

That won't come until the next volume Kev.  ;) Seriously though, I went on Amazon today to preorder the Lewisohn book and of course they thought it would be a good idea for me to preorder the BBC book too. I started thinking about how much I love anything to do with the Beatles and the BBC. I debated my entire lunch hour about which one to order, should I order both, what if my dishwasher finally dies before Amazon charges my debit card and on and on. I ended up ordering nothing! I'm not usually this indecisive.  roll:)

It's the first volume that I'm most looking forward to and, if it's as good as I'm hoping it'll be, it will be as much a history of Britain from war-time through the 50s as it will be about The Beatles themselves.

1957-1962 is, for me, the most interesting period of the group and when the huge manuscript arrives in November, Lonnie, Gene, Carl, Chuck, Elvis, Larry, Ricky and Buddy go on the CD player 24/7, and it's head down for a week (or will it need a fortnight?).

I only ever had Vol. 1 on vinyl and (strangely) cassette so, as both volumes are £15, I might just get the two on the same day. Of course, HMV and/or someone on the internet will probably be selling off the old versions for much less.
Can the 1994 version really be that much improved?

I believe it will be minor improvements. Until I'm proven wrong, I'm not going to pick it up. For me the song itself and the energy The Beatles put into it are the main things, not a slight improvement of the quality of the recording.

I recognise that the record industry is a very different place to what it was in 1994, but has there been mention anywhere of a 'trailer' single for the BBC CD, in the way 'Baby It's You' was for the first volume?

So 'Volume 2' is finally out on Monday, I feel as though I've been waiting for these CDs forever. I'm sure it wasn't like this years ago! Then it would be, 'It's out next week, mate.'
It's a special journey into 'that there London' for me on Monday - the last time I bought a record on day of release was 'SMiLE' two years ago, which was, coincidentally, the last 'new' (no pun on McCartney) record I actually bought.

Just started playing the most important record release of the 21st Century - sorry, 'Live at the BBC, Volume 2' - and, already 'Do You Want To Know A Secret' is stronger than the studio version.

Two things.
1. If the two-for-one purchase had been pitched at, the more logical, £25, Apple would now have ten more pounds, and,
2. How hard is it to actually buy a physical record in 2013?!
I looked in two supermarkets before getting on a five mile round trip on a London bus to get mine!

On 'Lucille' now.....fabulous.....and Paul's just had his 21st birthday.....and now 'Anna'.....

As my fave LP by the Fabs is 'Please, Please, Me' I accept that this release (and Volume 1) was virtually tailor made for me, but it is absolutely fantastic.
Their version of 'I'm Talking About You' is sensational. Almost as much of a revelation as 'Bathroom Window' was on Anthology 3.

Love the sheer effortlessness and mid-60s cool of 'Revolver', the eclecticism of 'The White Album' and the genius Side 2 of 'Abbey Road' but, if I was granted two Beatles' releases to take to a mythical tropical island, I'd plump for 'Live at the BBC' Volumes 1 and 2.

Absolutely essential and I genuinely can't understand why anyone wouldn't (for £15!) want a copy.

But in 1977 we had no internet or bootleg CDs.  The release of Live! at the Star Club was a big event and our first chance to hear the Pre-fab Four.  I couldn't resist purchasing the double LP!  Sure, it was recorded on a home tape recorder, but we didn't care.  This was a major event back then.

Right, Kev.  There's always the secondary market.

The Beatles Complete BBC Sessions 9 Disc Box Set was released in 1993 by Great Dane, an Italian label.  I bought this set when it was released.  It has most of The Beatles BBC recordings.  My sister bought me Live At The BBC for my birthday in 1994.  I recently bought the remastered version.  There's a noticeable improvement in the audio quality of the 1994 release over the 1993 Great Dane discs.  The 2013 remastered set's audio is slightly improved over the 1994 release.

But there are still a lot of recordings on the Great Dane set which haven't been put out by EMI.  Here's the track listing:

But in 1977 we had no internet or bootleg CDs.  The release of Live! at the Star Club was a big event and our first chance to hear the Pre-fab Four.  I couldn't resist purchasing the double LP!  Sure, it was recorded on a home tape recorder, but we didn't care.  This was a major event back then.

 

Of course it was. Still it doesn't mean that the quality or our demand for quality is up to modern standards. I don't believe that remastering can make the album much better than it is.

But there was something about the "vibe" of that home tape recording that added something special to the sound of the Star Club LP, Cor.  It was as though we were looking back in time when The Beatles were still in black leather and rough around the edges.  Perhaps, even if those tapes could be remastered, it's best that the album stay just the way it is.

One thing is for sure, we can never rule out that we won't get something new.  According to Kevin Howlett, the source tapes for the On Air set are NOT the same as those used for either the Great Dane set or the Purple Chick Unsurpassed Broadcasts set.  "Things We Said Today" no longer has Brian Matthew's intro spoken over the start and there's one or two bits that I've never heard at all.

It keeps us interested (and poor, lol)!

The Beatles were very prolific in their BBC performances.  Brian Epstein made sure of that.  So there is much material which can be digitally remastered and released.  And I believe there will be a market for this well into the future. 

The Beatles themselves didn't think they had much of a future in 1964...

That was the life of a "Beat" group, 3 years and then back to the clubs or split, hopefully with a few bob in the bank.

It's hard now to go back to, say, 1963 and forget about breaking the U.S., the films, Revolver and Pepper and everything else that followed and just see it as it was then.  It all seems so obvious now, their music is streets ahead of whatever else was going on but I guess then, they were just a group, without all the heavy importance we put on them now.

There's deffo gonna be volume 3.  It's tempting to make one up yourself, then to see if you can stretch the idea to volume 4!  :)  I think that "Twist and Shout" was recorded over 10 times for the Beeb.  Then there's the "specials" that were made by the BBC, such as "The Beatles Abroad"....let's just hope that it comes out sooner than volume 2 did after volume 1!!!

Post by: oldbrownshoe on November 21, 2013, 01:09:16 PM
I don't agree that The Beatles were 'streets ahead of whatever else was going on' in the 60s.
Is 'Day Tripper' streets ahead of 'Like A Rolling Stone'?
'Revolver' streets ahead of 'Pet Sounds'?
'Sgt. Pepper's' streets ahead of 'Piper At The Gates Of Dawn'?

However, I do think that The Beatles and the 60s are streets ahead (no, light years ahead) of all the decades that followed.....though not the 50s.

Got this for Christmas and finally got a crack at it today. I just grabbed one of the CD's and threw it in the car player on my way to work and it happened to be Disc 2. Not impressed so far. Just crappier versions of old popular tunes. I'm digging the Lennon interview, but i'm only partially through it so far. I'm pretty sure i'll enjoy the other stuff better then this disc.

I wanted to like this as much as the first one but I still like the first one best. When I heard the first one I was totally blown away but maybe it was just the fact that I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know a thing about the BBC recordings then. I borrowed it from the library and fell in love with it. I bought the remastered discs so now I'm all set.

I agree.  The first one is my preference. Lots of covers I'd never heard them do before (except maybe on the Star Club record which hardly counts). And there were some terrific performances.

Most of the stuff on the second were done in the studio and have definitive versions that these don't add much too.
