BBC Radio 2 'Please Please Me' special
« on: January 22, 2013, 01:26:08 PM »

Hi - just read this:
Mick Hucknall and Stereophonics join forces to cover the Beatles
Artists set to re-record Beatles debut Please Please Me at Abbey Road studios for the BBC

Quote
Mick Hucknall and Stereophonics are among a group of artists who have announced plans to cover the Beatles' debut album. On 11 February, a gang of jamming musicians will revisit all 14 songs on Please Please Me, with the results airing on BBC Radio 2.

Recording will take place at Abbey Road, the same studios where the Beatles worked in 1963. Throughout the 12-hour project, Radio 2's Jo Whiley will check in with fellow DJ Stuart Maconie, discussing the process, listening to samples, and talking to some of the original Please Please Me contributors, including engineer Richard Langham and former Beatles press officer Tony Barrow.

This new session will take place exactly 50 years after John, Paul, George and Ringo went into studio with George Martin...
