Beatles Live at BBC Volume 2

Live At The BBC Volume 2
On November 30, 1994 BBC released a compilation album from the various Beatles performances at the BBC between March of 1962 to June of 1964. The Live At BBC album reached charts when released in 1994 having a sale price of about five million copies sold world wide in six weeks.
Previously it was released that The Beatles Live At BBC Volume 2 will be released this November 11.
The Beatles played a huge catalougue of songs across 275 performances in the varying four years they preformed at the BBC. The new album will consist of early hits and covers (including takes from Pop Go The Beatles series in 1963 where they're recorded 18 songs for three editions in one day- session lasting less than seven hours; "Lucille" and "The Hippy Hippy Shake"), it will also include some new versions of songs from Volume 1 and interviews from November of 1965 and May 1966 for the BBC Pop Profile series. Paul McCartney remembers the performances at the BBC as,
“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.”
 Volume 2 will have a total of 63 tracks on 2 CDs including 37 unreleased song performances and 23 unreleased tracks.
“Everything was done instantly,” George Harrison recalls,
 “But before that, we used to drive 200 miles in an old van down the M1 [highway], 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!”
The album will feature 40 performances of BBC Radio Broadcast of  The Beatles and will be issued at the same day as Volume 1 is due to be released with a remastered version. You can pre-order your copy of Volume 2 at any of the following;

 “You tend to forget that we were a working band…. There were usually no overdubs.  We were in at the count-in and that was it. I get excited listening to them.” -Ringo Starr
