November speculation now

Rolling Stone has this quote "The new anthology comes as a result of the 2012 Listener's Archive campaign asking the public to donate home-recorded radio and televesion shows to the BBC, which didn't begin archiving its material until the late Seventies. "

Which could leave it open for a wider scope not just the radio programs.... eg. Audio from television appearences,concerts etc

@R.Bone: home-recorded radio and TV? I wonder just how good the audio quality is going to be on these...doesn't sound promising.

It's all just spectulation.....But even if they just release a remastered 'Volume 1' they have the tools to clean up some of the 'worser for ware' recordings far better than they could ever in 1994....

@R.Bone: I hope so. It would be nice if even the original '94 release was cleaned up.

They could have had cleaner/better sounding home recordings sent in ....Who knows what's out there

@R.Bone: I would *assume* that Apple wouldn't release an official new Beatles CD, if the sound quality weren't at least somewhat listenable by modern standards.

In 2012 Apple took possession of a few major upgrades of BBC material, and, so they say, some previously unavailable stuff. All the information from the internet comes from a chain form Rolling Stone via The Manchester Guardian via a Beatles fan site via Universal (Philippines), where the story was up for a day before being taken down. So no firm news, but the date bandied about is now October 10th. I would like to see more songs and better sources but I fear more interviews and the four 'orphaned' BBC tracks (Lend Me Your Comb from Anthology and the 3 new tracks from the 'Baby' It's You' EP) and nothing more. Well, it's going to be an expensive month....

I have heard an early incarnation of the 94 BBC release which is missing much of the chat and adding 'P.S I Love You,Twist and Shout,And I Love Her,I'll Follow The Sun.So those 3 Unreleased ones could still be added

The b**tl*g 'Unsurpassed Broadcasts' from 2010 is the best way to hear all the BBC stuff (hint a certain auction site will sell it to you on MP3 for ten bucks) in best sound quality- some definite upgrades (even Keep Your hands Off My baby sounds a bit better but it's still the same crackly original source), more material (some terrific interviews from 1967/8) and even some of the infamous 'Laughing' I'll follow The Sun session. But of course we're all going to wait for an official release.

My wife got hold of a set of boots from someone at her office which includes all the 'Pop Go The Beatles' radio show material (not the shows themselves, which featured guest artists, just the Beatles songs). The sound quality is terrible and was clearly recorded by putting a mic in front of a radio- lots of hisses, crackles and static. Such a pity that the Beeb didn't keep pristine copies of the original recordings; the shows were pre-recorded, so master copies did exist before being destroyed.

These recordings are better than nothing, but only just. I'd love to get decent copies.

I wonder how many song of the official release are BBC copies and how many were from home recorded source's. Plus there may have been editing done on some of the songs, taken from multiple shows, though these may have come from BBC archives and not home recordings.

R. Bone says:
the BBC would produce LP disks of shows to send overseas,some they have mastered from some of those. The rest were mastered from the 'home recordings', 'Bootlegs' which have been circulating since the 70's.

'Keep Your Hands Off My Baby' had an intro created for 'Live at The BBC'

The site linked above has a good description of the BBC tracks and what work was done to each recording for it's release.

Thanks R. Bone.

Seems a rumor that Rolf Harris's Recent trouble may be causing delay to the BBC Release as 'Tie Me Kangaroo' may have been pulled from the tracklisting.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 11, 2013 8:50:26 AM PDT
Which George - Martin or Harrison? Because if it's George Martin's tie ... I don't like it.
