Hasn't this been done already?  How much more suck can we endure?

Actually the Live at the BBC album was pretty interesting ... if you're a hard core Beatles fan.

I love the BBC Sessions albums. The Hendrix one is great.

It would great if the Beatles got back together.

I'm sure they could find a 20 minute recording of Ringo farting on a snare drum and these folks would buy it when it was released. Then again when it was re-released 3 times in the next 2 years.

They will be reunited in 20 years. They'll get there.

Love the Hendrix one. Also, the one for Led Zeppelin is excellent.

alternate Beatles takes are far more interesting than most groups 'hits'

Even though it was a long time ago, The Beatles changed popular culture in a lot of ways. They didn't just change popular music - they altered popular culture. Even Kings wanted to meet them, not just the King's daughters. Their music changed significantly in just a few short years and THEIR AUDIENCE DEVELOPED WITH THEM. Try that, NStink or Justin Poopypants. The Beatles had seven-minute-long songs on the radio; songs that start A Capella; they had the first use of feedback to start a pop song; first song with a string quartet on the radio, songs way beyond the old I-IV-V, and many many more innovations. They wrote their OWN SONGS, fer Kryssake. The Beatles did it all first. OK, so they don't rock like Metallica or something... so what? It's a long way from "Love Me Do" to "Eleanor Rigby", especially in a year or two.

When you guys get a little older you'll be able to put things in a historical perspective. Popular music right before the Beatles was Pat Boone blandly ripping off RnB. It's not unreasonable to say the Beatles SAVED Pop Music.

Now where can I buy that "20 minute recording of Ringo farting on a snare drum"?

I don't care for Live at the BBC but the anthologies were awesome.

Cream's BBC sessions were also good

The BBC record everything that comes within a 200 mile radius of it, they have recordings of your dreams from next week.

CWeinerWV: I don't care for Live at the BBC but the anthologies were awesome.


I loved them both. I hope Live at the BBC Volume 2 is great too.

The remixes and studio chatter used in Cirque du Soleil "Love" is about as close as you can get to a reunion show.

It's not uncommon for people that age to drool, it may have nothing to do with this Beatles release.

Yeah Subby, how dare they like something you don't like!

And then there's this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueBUFUWSXHs
Before Black Sabbath, before Led Zeppelin. Without this song, there might not be any Metallica. And it was written by the cute, poppy one.

On the one hand, they are outtakes for a reason.

On the other, well why not?
 
2013-09-15 09:30:39 PM  
So the BBC can find dreck like this, but they're POSITIVE there's absolutely no trace of the early Doctor Who episodes...

There is slash fanfiction of the beatles out there. Just letting you know.

Depends on how many more albums Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift release.

Did they capture a discussion by the boys, as they contemplated the meaning of the lyrics of "Rocky Raccoon"?

Never understood what was the big deal, and I lived through the whole thing.  I guess I never will.
 
2013-09-16 09:59:52 AM  
I eat this stuff up, I love studio chatter.  I'd love to hear the same kind of stuff from CCR, the Stones, the Who, Ramones, Pistols, REM, Replacements, everyone basically.
 
2013-09-16 10:04:34 AM  
These aren't "outtakes", they're live in-studio performances broadcast by the BBC.  The first set was awesome and I'm really looking forward to this one.

There's a nine- or ten-CD compilation bootleg floating around out there that a lot of this stuff has appeared on, but hopefully the cleaned-up audio on this one will be worth the price of admission.

Now where's that farting snare drum boot?

BIngo.  Bad then, the BBC was expected to play live music, not records, so they could get around it by having bands rerecord stuff aive-in-the-studio.  The sad thing is the BBC though recycling audio (and video) tape was more important than saving performances for posterity, so all the stuff on this album and the previous BBC collection comes from home recorders who are actually being given amnesty if they turn their tapes in, as what they did was illegal!

I also recommend the David Bowie and Kinks Live at the BBC discs, both of which were partially assembled the same way.
