The Beatles Live At The BBC Volume 3, Upgrades and Additions - 2015 Edition.

I can't find it on discogs.com or amazon, and even googling doesn't find a lot of hits, which tells me something... is this set of two CDs a bootleg, a grey market thing or what?

More importantly, is it worth having?  Anything about it at all is appreciated.  

Thanks!

Without any further information, I am going for this being what you're asking about, @stuartgardner:

It isn't "grey market" but rather a straight bootleg which attempts to deceive by packaging it to look official (with the use of the Apple logo, etc.). That would be the reason you cannot find it on discogs or Amazon.

As to the contents, is it worth having? In my opinion, yes.

Should you pay for the contents, though? No, never.

In 2015, fan Lord Reith made available for free a 24-disc collection, The BBC Archives, of all the known BBC recordings, which is still available for free on the interweb. It includes everything on this set bar one song (A Taste Of Honey  from People and Places, which wasn't done for the BBC but, rather, their commercial rival, ITV - and then only shown in the North of England), plus a whole heap more.

Lord Reith's The BBC Archives, being free, and as complete as possible, is by far the best way to get hold of the surviving BBC material - which is still more unreleased than released.

While we're not meant to link to sites that provide download links, may I suggest you google "Lord Reith Collection", and should you find that it leads you to The BBC Archives and his other Beatles fan-made sets (it was the top entry when I just tried).

But, just for emphasis, don't ever pay for unofficial releases, grey market or bootleg, as all can be found for free on the interweb.

Ron,

Thank you very much, indeed!  I really appreciate the time you took with such a detailed reply... because you just saved me 24 dollars!

Yes, you found the exact image of the item that furrowed my brow.  And the "attempt to decieve by packaging it to look official" works pretty well through these glass screens of the interweb, doesn't it?  Deucedly insidious of them!

I believe eBay is fairly stringent about not allowing the sale of boots - at least, they used to be - but this time they seem to have blinked.  It's listed there now, awaiting anyone unwise enough to buy it without consulting Ron Nasty first.

I'm off now, first to alert eBay to their oversight and then to google "Lord Reith Collection."

Again, many thanks!

You've done your good work for the day.

Thanks Ron!! I have been wondering about these recordings myself for a while now and never got around to looking things up!

I'm just starting to look through it and download, but there are certainly things that were missing I'm hoping have been found.

So far he seems to have updated 13 of the first 14 discs (disc 2 hasn't been done yet).
