Live At The BBC (1994)

Live At The BBC (Reissue)

Buy Live At The BBC (2013 reissue) on CD, on Vinyl, or on iTunes

A collection of tracks culled from 4 years of performances on various BBC radio programs, Live At The BBC is an excellent look at the lifestyle of the band during this area. Consisting two discs of skits and dialogue as well as unreleased originals and variations, the album also features incredibly detailed linear notes and rare photos. Since the BBC had only two of the many sessions starring the Beatles in its archives (one of which was incomplete), most of the tracks from Live At The BBC were taken from collectors' private collections and previously released bootlegs. The cover photo was a heavily retouched version of the original photo by Dezo Hoffman, with many building signs and markings edited out. Grammy nominated for Best Historical Album.

2013 reissue and extra tracks

The 2013 reissue featured a new cover as well as three new tracks. The cover was a more black and white version of the original cover, which was more of a sepia tone (see below). A new song, From Us To You, closed disc 2. A new speech track, What Is It, George? was placed on disc 1 between Carol and Soldier Of Love. The speech track Ringo? Yep! was added to disc two, replacing Have A Banana! as track 3. Most of Have a Banana! was incorporated into the end of the previous track, A Hard Day's Night, but the phrase itself, from which the original speech track got its title, was removed.
