This is one in a series of TEN C.D.'s bringing you the entire BBC sessions output, that The Beatles recorded between 1962 and 1965. Every effort has been made to carefully restore every single radio programme including original Beatle dialogue between the songs.
The result is this amazing 10 CD-series which brings you many of the songs in upgraded and updated sound quality. There are many treasures to be found, many great live radio versions of album tracks to be heard, which surpass the official releases, as well as many unknown cover versions.

Here are The Beatles full of energy, full of youthful brashness, ready to take over the world .... and YOU !!

My Comments :
An essential purchase, which adds some performances not included on previous "Complete" BBC box sets.
Presented in order of recording.

Each C.D. is housed in a colourful digi-pak with full transmission details. Plenty of spelling mistakes though !

All sleeve errors are corrected in the tracklistings below.
All track times are the full time of the C.D. track, including any chat or introductions.
