A preview of the second volume of The Beatles 'Live At The BBC' collection is being streamed online – The original collection of recordings was released in 1994, hitting Number One in the UK charts and selling more than five million copies worldwide within its first six weeks of release. Its follow-up, 'On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2' will be released on Monday, November 11.
The double album contains 63 tracks in total – none of which appear on the original collection. Some 37 previously unreleased performances will feature, as well as 23 previously unreleased recordings of in-studio chat between the band and BBC radio hosts. Commenting on the release, Paul McCartney said in a statement: "There's a lot of energy and spirit. We are going for it, not holding back at all, trying to put in the best performance of our lifetimes." Between March 1962 and June 1965, 275 Beatles performances were broadcast by the BBC in the UK.
