George ended up really looking like his dad. Just add long hair

His dad even grew his long in later years! I'll post a photo over in George's picture forum when I get on my computer.

I think all the BBC stuff released in the recent years was never meant to attract new Beatlesfans. And why should it?

I wasn't planning to burn this total thing on disc at all by the way. What I will be doing is put it all on the mp3-player and listen to it all when I'm working out. I don't care what Apples plans are. A volume 3 or 4 or 5? It really doesn't matter to me, I won't be buying it when I can have all this for free. Yes, it is a lot, but I hope to be alive for some more time to listen to it all.

It's really quite simple Bobber.

The official pickings over the years HAVE been measly.....who on earth wouldn't agree with that?
'1', 'Love', 'Let It Be...Naked', 'Yellow Submarine', 'Reel Music', '20 Greatest Hits'.....yikes!
I'd say there have been only two wholly successful releases since 1970, namely the two BBC sets.
 
And yet having absolutely everything in one huge splurge IS too much, in the way that sitting at home devouring ten 'seasons' of a cop show in one sitting is too much. Way too much. I doubt anyone will listen to any one of these CDs more than twice.

But actually the great pity is that Apple haven't released all of this over a 'sustained' period of time (see the Dylan Bootleg Series model - THAT'S how to do it - they've got it down to a fine art).....bearing in mind that CDs have been around for over 30 years now.

If they'd done that, they'd have cultivated new fans rather than just the existing ones (a small number I suspect) who'll like this.

One positive is that it might prompt Apple to release a 'Live at the BBC' Volume 3 though.

Pictures by Mike McCartney, taken on June 11 1962, when The Beatles second BBC performance was recorded. As seen on beatlesource.com

Wow this is great Bobber. I was just reading about the Beatles very first BBC appearance which was also the first time they wore suits on stage. I didn't know the recording existed.

I'm hoping to get all of this set.

When the BBC released Live at The BBC 1 & 2 a few years ago I assumed perhaps naively that was pretty much everything worth listening to. This is a massive addition.

First you say that the pickings over the years have been measly. Then you say this is too much music. I don't get your point.

Of course this is only going to appeal to existing fans. Nothing in this that is interesting for new fans to discover. The question is: is that important? There are thousands of existing Beatlesfans all over the world. I'd like to give the existing Beatlesfans of this forum, member or not, the opportunity to get their hands on a series they might like. And it's free: now there's your value for money.
