Two more updated volumes. The main change is the addition of three "Everett Is Here" interviews from 1969 (tracks 7, 8 and 10) that are not listed in Howlett's book, which is what I used to compile the set. There is some confusion over the dating but the George interview at least was almost certainly broadcast on the 26th of July because the parade he gives a plug to took place on Sunday the 27th according to a newspaper report. Paul's interview seems likely to be from the same day. Thanks to John Winn for clearing that up. Buy his books - you'll not regret it! http://www.multiplusbooks.com/

Here's part 7 of the dvd (only one more to go):

Remember: you need all eight parts to unzip it.

Tomorrow: we say goodbye to The BBC Archives with V17 - but we go out with a bang! Get out yer old Beatle wigs as we party with the Bootlegzone World Premiere of a lost performance of Love Me Do from Side By Side.

Another updated volume - but one with a difference! In this case I have been able to acquire a near-complete tape of the Side By Side broadcast of 24th June 1963. Previously only four of the five Beatles songs have ever been available, plus the opening theme and one Karl Denver track. Now we have all the songs heard in this show. All that is missing is some of the announcer's introductions towards the end.

These new tracks were not actually captured by a Beatles fan, but rather a Karl Denver fan who simply left the tape running. At the end of When Day Is Done he stopped recording The Beatles and just turned on the recorder for KD's songs. Luckily, among the Beatles tracks he recorded was Love Me Do, which has not been heard ever since. It's a great, funky version and is the only studio performance of this song to ever include a proper full ending. Previously the only other instance we had of the group playing the ending is during the live Easybeat in October 1963 (though recorded in a studio I don't consider it as a "studio recording" as such owing to the constant screams of the audience). Oddly enough it sounds for a moment as though the engineer is starting to fade out the track when The Beatles suddenly come to a halt. It could be the studio personel were expecting the track to fade out like on the record.

Also of use on this new tape is the missing section of the opening theme. Previously there was an interruption just after John Dunn says "We're knee-deep in the four Beatles once again this afternoon". Now you can hear the complete introduction. Although the tape also includes alternate source for Too Much Monkey Business and Boys, there wasn't any improvement over the old source so I have not used those. All of the KDT songs however are from the new tape. The two final tracks, Wimoweh and Side by Side (closing theme) are not on the cd but have been included in an extra folder. If you want to listen on an Ipod or similar, just paste these two tracks into the main folder. Side By Side is identical to the opening theme without the addition of Ringo's drums and John, Paul and George's vocals.

The format of this show was different to Pop Go The Beatles. In PGTB, The Beatles would play two numbers first, followed by two from the guest, two more from The Beatles, two from the guest, one from The Beatles, one from the guest and one final song from The Beatles (on occasions this varied slightly with The Beatles performing two songs at the end or in their second last spot). In SBS, the guest played the first song and then simply alternated one song at a time with The Karl Denver Trio.

The choice of songs performed by The Karl Denver Trio is eclectic to say the least. Ja Der Willy sounds like a German beer drinking song, complete with yodelling and laughter. :beer: When Day Is Done and If I Had My Way are both old time standards, the former boasting some beautiful guitar work. Wimoweh is actually the traditional version of the chant which most people know as The Lion Sleeps Tonight, much later a big chart hit in the UK. By far the strangest track though is "Zub", in which the yodelling Scotsman and his chums manage to sound uncannily like Yoko Ono and The Plastic Ono Band some six years before their inception. :lol:

Also new to this disc is a brief interview (thanks to the contributor!) where Paul talks about Pop Go The Beatles. It's always amazed me that, in all the interviews they did throughout the seven subsequent years, they never once to my knowledge ever mentioned that they'd had a national radio series. Perhaps, if Paul's comments are anything to go by, they were so embarassed by the title that they chose not to remember?

Thanks again to the collector who made this update possible. A splendid chap I think.

Tomorrow or possibly Monday will be the final volume 17 - including an endorsement from Paul McCartney himself. :wink:

And here's the final part (8) of the dvd:

http://www.dereferer.org/?http%3A%2F%2Fwe%2Etl%2FpPPXKDtSKU

Once you have all 8 zips, right click on V24 (DVD).zip.001 and choose "open with Winrar" or whatever archiver you use. Then just select where you want it to go and unzip and it will all unfold magically. For those who don't know what to do with a dvd folder, instructions are included. I hope you all enjoy the dvd. Not all of it is brilliant quality but there's a couple of nice things in there which should please even the most jaded collector.

If you just want to watch the dvd on your computer, install VLC freeware (google it) and under the MEDIA tab click OPEN FOLDER then choose the VIDEO_TS folder. You should then see the dvd menu. VLC will not display the opening clip, but you can access it through the PLAYBACK > TITLE tabs.

An extra thing. Volume 17 and a MP4 (which is like the dvd, but with some extra things) will be coming shortly.







I'm sure many of you remember this radio special from March 1982, which was the first time (certainly mine) we had ever even heard of this stuff. Even though many of the recordings have been superseded in the intervening years, this is still a fun listen and a trip down memory lane for many.

Though you probably recorded it at home just like the original fans in the sixties, here it is in pristine quality, complete with a detailed history of the show and how it was put together.

Assuming there's enough interest I can also upload the revised version from boxing day 1982.

http://www.dereferer.org/?http%3A%2F%2Fwe%2Etl%2FJXUulKo0hF

Tomorrow: the final instalment of this saga in 24 parts, the elusive V17 along with the upgrade patch for the dvd and an mp4 version with three bonus videos including Follow The Beatles and The World Of John And Yoko. Also included with V17 is a package of extras including:

This is an upgrade patch for V24, the dvd The Beatles On Television. To use it you must already have downloaded the original dvd. My links are gone but someone else has re-upped it here:

V24: http://www.dereferer.org/?https%3A%2F%2Fdrive%2Egoogle%2Ecom%2Ffile%2Fd%2F0B6EPlL%5FT0w0TWS1LZ1JMMk5ZQ3M%2Fview%3Fusp%3Dsharing

Instructions are included. This will upgrade three items: the Peter Woods interview, Grandstand and A Degree Of Frost. The originals were quite blocky, but these are much nicer.

This is an mp4 (h264) version of V24 The Beatles On Television. The files can be played on your computer, tablet or phone with Itunes or VLC Player. Alternatively, just put them on a usb stick and plug it into your tv, media player or bluray player.

http://www.dereferer.org/?http%3A%2F%2Fwe%2Etl%2FgLfK6RDdRl

This includes three items not included on the dvd: the Follow The Beatles documentary from 1964 which goes behind the scenes of the first feature film; The World Of John And Yoko from 1969; and an alternate print of She Loves You from The Mersey Sound.

Well, all good things come to an end... at least for now. So here are the last handfull of Beatles BBC interviews before the breakup. Scene And Heard continued to document the state of play until the very end, probing deeper than any Beatles interviews had ever done before. Conspicuous in his absence is Paul, who seems to have been growing ever more estranged from the public and the other three at this time. Not long after Ringo's Open House appearance, Paul would finally bring down the curtain on The Beatles for good.

As usual these interviews have been reconstructed where possible using new improved sources. Before anyone asks, there was another BBC special in 1970 about Let It Be, but this merely repackaged Scene And Heard interviews along with music from the lp. Since it was broadcast after the breakup and includes nothing new, it falls outside the scope of this set.

Also included with this volume are some extras:

A Taste Of Honey (People And Places 2nd Nov 1962) (audio)
Abilene (Tony Rivers And The Castaways) Pop Go The Beatles 24th Sept 1963
Cilla - TV Show with Ringo 6th Feb 1968 (audio)
Frankly Speaking Brian Epstein 23rd March 1964
How It Is - TV Show 17 July 68 (audio)
Memphis, Tennesee (Splice Version PGTB 18th June 1963) (thanks to Qwazi)
Pops And Lenny feature
Ringo on Juke Box Jury 1st Aug 1964 (audio)
The Beatles 1964 Christmas Show Interview 1
The Beatles 1964 Christmas Show Interview 2
Tom Lodge Interview - Radio Caroline 25th March 1966
From Us To You - TS Version
The Trad Lads (Here We Go)
Kenny Everett 9th June '68 complete show (fix)

The final track on V17 documents the occasion when Paul McCartney gave his blessing for this set. Though it has been over 40 years since that day, The Beatles BBC Archives is now proudly presented here as a historical and cultural artifact. Thank you Paul... and John, George and Ringo.

http://www.dereferer.org/?http%3A%2F%2Fwe%2Etl%2FQBpJL527kX

NOTE to uploaders: please keep the extras folders bundled with V17 or they will become lost over time, like happened with Purple Chick's set.

You're welcome. But all I did was a matter of copy-paste. It was a member called Lord Reith on the forum of bootlegzone that posted all this incredible stuff. It was his intention to spread the thing and that's what I did.

It already boggles my mind to see the scope of material that Lord Reith has brought together. I can't wait to dig in; I'm sure I'll be even more amazed.

Jose, One of our administrators, Bobber, will be able to tell you more about this when he is here. Don't worry about your English; you are doing just fine!

Hi José, welcome aboard.

Apparently all the links to the files have expired by now. What I can do is upload them all into my own public dropbox and post the links here. As these are large files, it will take some time. So you will have to come back every now and then at least to pick them up. In the meantime, there's plenty to read and learn in here of course.  glassesslip

Thank you very much "Bobber" and "In My Life". My knowledge of English are going very slowly. I often pass by here. I have to hire a personal cloud to climb all packages of music that I have and offer them to friends. With patience and discipline is achieved almost everything. Again thank you very much for everything. The Beatles always

You're welcome.
By the way, I made a mistake. There was an updated version of disc 2. Here it is:
