The Beatles On Air Live At The BBC Volume 2 Tracklisting Confirmed

The rumoured new Beatles album featuring previously unreleased BBC performances has been confirmed including a rare Lennon-McCartney song.

‘On Air – Live At The BBC Volume 2’ will be released in November. The album will feature 63 tracks including 37 unreleased performances and 23 previously unreleased in-studio banter and interview.

‘On Air – Live At The BBC Volume 2’ is the sequel to the 1994 ‘The Beatles Live At The BBC’ which sold over 5 million copies within the first six weeks of release.

Ten songs from ‘On Air’ were never recorded by The Beatles for any of their EMI albums. They include Chuck Berry’s ‘I’m Talking About You’ and the standard ‘Beautiful Dreamer’. The rare Lennon-McCartney original ‘I’ll Be On My Way’ will also be included on the album.

In 1980 John Lennon said, “We did a lot of tracks that were never on record for Saturday Club – they were well recorded, too.” Paul remembers, “We’d been raised on the BBC radio programs. One of the big things in our week was Saturday Club – this great show was playing the kind of music we loved, so that was something we really aspired to.”

The Beatles recorded 275 performances and 88 individual songs for the BBC between March 1962 and June 1965. In 1963 alone they performed on 39 radio shows. Their busiest days was July 16, 1963 when they recorded 18 songs in less than seven hours for the BBC. “You tend to forget that we were a working band. It’s that mono sound. There were usually no overdubs. We were in at the count-in and that was it. I get excited listening to them,” Ringo Starr said in 1994. “Everything was done instantly,” remembered George Harrison in an old interview, “But before that, we used to drive 200 miles in an old van down the M1, come into London, try and find the BBC and then set up and do the program. Then we’d probably drive back to Newcastle for a gig in the evening!”
