THE BEATLES: The BBC Archives 1962-1970

KEVIN HOWLETT    Book Number: 82466    Product format: Hardback

The Beatles arrived at the BBC for a radio audition in February 1962, and none of the four lads from Liverpool was older than 21. Pretty soon they were acting like they owned the place! No fewer than 275 unique musical performances by the Beatles were broadcast of which 36 of the songs were never issued on record while the group was in existence. Many of the original tapes and unreleased tracks and cover versions on tape were lost until 1982. Pop Goes The Beatles had been a treasure trove of unreleased songs. Among the collectable paraphernalia in the box set is a lovely 9" square publicity photographic print of the fab four on quality paper, a BBC Audience Research Report and an extraordinary letter to the Chairman of EMI explaining 'most courteously' why the BBC had decided not to play the track 'A Day In The Life' because of the words 'I'd love to turn you on'. The 336 page hardcover book draws on rare photographs and previously unpublished BBC interviews, transcripts from exclusive access to archival material. From the excitement of Beatlemania to the mature reflections of the last interviews, it was all seen and heard on the BBC. A luxury production, 10" square, boxed with facsimile of historic archival documents.
