Are there likely to be further official Live At The BBC releases I wonder? Certainly seems like the material's there.

I suspect not. It feels like they're already doubling up on too many songs on Vol 2, and a third volume would be really scraping the barrel. Personally I'd rather see a fourth Anthology, as there must be masses of good-quality stuff in the vaults that nobody's ever heard.

Btw, here's a hastily-cobbled-together page on the Vol 2 album. I'll add to it as more info emerges. I'll also update the list of The Beatles' radio recordings when I know precisely what's on the album.

I'm mainly interested in this: I Feel Fine (studio outtake)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAIK they only recorded I Feel Fine once, but the same version was broadcast twice, on 26 November and 26 December 1964. So is this completely new, not even on the bootlegs? I don't have the complete BBC set, so I don't know what's in circulation.

The "Top Gear" studio tape emerged a few years back containing I Feel Fine and She's A Woman, including some interesting chat between them and the control room (especially John). So while the take is the same, I should imagine it'll include some of the studio dialogue.

I believe I have those...yep, just checked. I have 2 versions of I Feel Fine and 3 of She's A Woman on my set.

A 17 second fragment from the Top Gear (show #20) recording sessions of I'll Follow The Sun was put online a couple of years ago, recorded on the 17th November 1964 (same sessions as I Feel Fine and She's A Woman) so we know more of that session exists. We also have the From Us To You #4 recording session tapes which gave us clean versions of the broadcast tracks along with an I Should Have Known Better false start and single tracked vocal, the backing track for I'm Happy Just To Dance With You and a From Us To You outtake.

It should be noted that the I Feel Fine outtake on the bootlegs is not complete, fading at 1:26, and has a single-tracked vocal (it was aired in 1988 on The Beebs Lost Beatles Tapes as was a false start and some studio chat). I guess the outtake on Volume 2 will be complete.

There is next to no chance of a BBC Volume 3, the only possibility would be another kind of archive release which touched on these like when Anthology 1 included Lend Me Your Comb.

Spot the difference. The rumoured cover:

The actual cover:
The official cover for "On Air: Live at the BBC, Volume 2" features a shorter tie for George Harrison than the version rumored. Image Enlarger

George's neck tie is shorter.

 

Interesting. I wonder if the photoshop artist had been told to lengthen the tie from the original or had taken some creative license. I can only imagine the kind of intense official discussions that went into such details.

Yeah, a fourth Anthology, or something similar, would be terrific.

Seriously, they felt the need to lengthen George's tie? :roll:

I'd guess that they were attempting to match George's tie with John and Ringo's in the earlier version of the cover, and then one of those who have to clear these things objected so they reverted to the original photograph.

Yip. When I look at it its even more disappointing. No The Night Before or Im Happy Just To Dance With You either (swap Im Happy... in place of Roll Over Beethoven and it makes it slightly better). Why the hell is Lend Me Your Comb included when we have already have it on Anthology 1 (and even remastered on iTunes)?

I'm peeved.
Will Apple ever get a new release right?

MMM just for you- once I hopefully get a degree in Commerce and German and a diploma in French, I'll try and get a job in Apple- build my way up i.e get a say in the company and try and make some proper decisions that the fans actually want 😛 It's either working at Apple or at Dark Horse Records (I'm not picky a-hard-days-night-george-10 )

Am I the only one who goes "blah". No Pete, nothing truly new and more versions of I Saw Her Standing There, BoysKansas City, Roll Over Beethoven, Long Tall Sally. Whoppee doo. Where is the Pop Goes The Beatles theme or even I Call Your Name? Is the latter not allowed because John messed up the ending? Its not a hard job doing a better job.

So this goes to the pick up when reduced section.

No - I am "blahing" with you :)

I'll probably still buy it seeing as I'm in the middle of a very enjoyable roll just now (or add it to my Christmas list for someone else to get me); but I really wish someone from these forums could get a job at Apple and sort them out.

Amusing bit from Hey Dullblog on why the writer looks forward to the collection:

So again, why? For the packaging. That’s it. New photos, new graphics, new liner notes (unamazing though those are bound to be, and probably unamusing too, with Derek Taylor no longer around to spin his webby weavings of wordings). We want to hold the slick, shining, dreamy thing in our hands, smell the newness, feel the cream of luxe surfaces, ogle the pix and go to bed dreaming of Beatle teeth.

That’s why, that’s it, and that’s a lot. The look, feel, entire physical reality of Beatle-ness has always been a big part of the joy of owning their product, of buying it freshly minted, living with it, having it unto old age. Beauty and novelty are wonderful, sustaining things, and there was never anything so beautiful and novel as You Know Whom.

Ha ha - you may well be :)

I am usually against colorisation of anything, but that pic looks fresh and clean, rather than the usual drab mess most of them turn out to be.

I have been thinking about this over the last few hours and sad as it is and despite every feeling of this being such a let down I know i'm going to give in and buy the damn thing for the same old reason - its the Beatles. And Apple know this. They know idiots such as me will bitch and moan and blacken their name but do they give a fig? Of course not. They know fine will they will get my money and that is all they care about. 

Its like loving a gold digger. You know fine well they are after you for only your cash, they don't truly give a fig about you, but still you keep coming back and splashing the cash and remain wrapped around their finger. And you feel so pathetic about it at times you despise that part of you.

Was looking at the tracklist details over at Wogblog and noticed that Devil In Her Heart is down as being from Pop Go The Beatles #15 not PGTB #10 which is the performance included on the Baby Its You EP.

Devil In Her Heart (Drapkin)

Pop Go The Beatles
Trans: 24 September 1963 Rec: 3 September 1963 Studio Two, Aeolian Hall, London Producer: Ian Grant
This is the second BBC performance of ‘Devil In Her Heart’. The first version, recorded on 20 August 1963, was released on the Baby It's You EP in 1995. ‘Devil In His Heart’ was the B-side of ‘Bad Boy’ - the only record made by four Detroit school girls called The Donays. Their American single on Brent was picked up by the British label Oriole for release in September 1962.
Boys is the same performance as on the Baby Its You EP despite having six alternates available for selection . Only one I'll Follow The Sun was broadcast.
