Fab Four fanatics, better start clearing off some more shelf space: According to Ultimate Classic Rock (via various Beatles fan sites), Apple will release Live at the BBC, Vol. 2 on October 3rd. This new BBC set follows the 1994 original and includes unreleased tracks recorded by The Beatles at the legendary U.K. studio.
Details about the set are still scarce, so it’s unclear if this release will prove as expansive as the original, which featured 69 tracks across two CDs. UCR theorizes that the set could feature B-sides from the “Baby It’s You” single (“I’ll Follow the Sun,” “Boys,” and “Devil in Her Heart”), among other tracks that were previously assumed to be destroyed.
The timing does seem appropriate for the new release: Beatles historian/author Kevin Howlett’s new book, The Beatles: The BBC Archives: 1962-1970, is dropping on October 10th.
