"Please Please Me" Album Being Covered in Entirety for BBC

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Current artists are taking up the challenge to re-record the Beatles' debut album--at the same breakneck pace in which the original was recorded.

Musicians including the Stereophonics and Simply Red's Mick Hucknall will attempt to complete the project in the same space--Abbey Road Studios--the Beatles used in 1963.

The musicians will use the same studio, with all the tracks recorded in the same order for the event, scheduled for Feb. 11. The project will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2, and will be filmed for a BBC Four special called 12 Hours to Please Me, scheduled to air Feb. 15 in the U.K.
