Beatles Cd - Radio Years At The BEEB
28 cover versions performed by The Beatles for BBC Radio.

The Radio Years at the Beeb: An interesting collection of 28 cover versions.

Legend has set the date of Wednesday March 7, 1962 as The Beatles' very first live appearance on BBC Radio. The program, which was called 'Teenagers' Turn', was recorded at the Manchester Playhouse and hosted by one long-forgotten Ray Peters. The boys, with Pete Best on drums, recorded a set of four songs: Dream Baby, Memphis Tennessee, Please Mr. Postman and Hello Little Girl. The first three of these were broadcast the following day.

It was to be the first in a long and productive series of successful radio-spots by a young and promising quartet, soon to be nationally announced as the Fab Four. Everything was live, as the Beeb didn't like playing scratchy records. Thanks to that, The Beatles created a rich recorded list of rare and alternative, sometimes one-off, studio performances. In just three years, The Beatles gigged live on fifty two different BBC Radio shows, singing ninety different songs.

Thirty two of these songs were Lennon-McCartney originals, hot hits or new album tracks they wanted to promote, the others being cover-versions of mostly Americam rythm and blues tunes: Too Much Monkey Business, Keep Your Hands Of (sic) My Baby, Soldier of Love, Ooh My Soul, Clarabella, Lonesome Tears In My Eyes, Carol and Don't Ever Change. Thirty six of the songs were never released on any of their commercial discs.

The boy's final BBC live appearance was on Monday June 7, 1965. The programme was called 'The Beatles Invite You To Take A Ticket To Ride', a holiday special broadcast plugging their newly-released single and forthcoming new album 'Help!'. Recorded at London's Piccadilly Theatre, the show was hosted by Denny Piercy, another long-forgotten soul.

From there on, the Fab's unique Beeb career was doomed to go straight down memory lane. Enjoyable shows like 'Saturday Club', 'Easy Beat', 'Side By Side', 'Pop Go The Beatles' and 'From Us To You' disappeared; we would have never heard them again if it had not been for some dedicated home-tapers. Over the years, naughties have thankfully plugged this rich vault of saved BBC broadcast tapes for the release of dozens of quick-selling pirate albums. Don't we all remember legendary vinyl put-outs like 'Yellow Matter Custard', 'The Lost Beebs', 'Youngblood', 'A Parlophone Rehearsal Sessions', 'Wonderful Picture Of You', 'Top Of The Pops' and, more recently, the nine-CD strong boxed set: 'Complete BBC Collection' by the Italy-based Great Dane Records?

On this first disc of box volume three in The Ultimate Collection, Yellow Dog you will hear an interesting collection of 28 coversongs played by The Beatles, and recorded by the BBC during 1963 for "Pop Goes The Beatles". Most songs are from writers and artists they particularly liked themselves, studied to fill the many hours on stage at The Cavern and Hamburg clubs like The Indra, The Kaiserkeller and the Top Ten. The disc also features covers of Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins and Buddy Holly originals, hits in the making and long-forgotten fifties originals. The boys' repertoire seemed limitless. All 28 tracks now available in the best ever sound quality so far.
