Beatle fans (aka Epiphone fans) can stream the new release Live at the BBC Volume 2 today. Check it out below. The double cd and multi-LP collection has 63 tracks and includes over 30 unreleased performances. "There's a lot of energy and spirit," said Paul McCartney in a statement about the release. "We are going for it, not holding back at all, trying to put in the best performance of our lifetimes."
For longtime Beatle bootleg collectors, Live at the BBC Volume 2 introduces superior versions of long-loved tracks like Chuck Berry's "I'm Talking About You" and a rollicking take on "Beautiful Dreamer." But all the great music aside, what really comes through is what a great band The Beatles were. There's a lot of love in these recordings and in this current age of studio trickery and eye winking, a lot of eyebrows will go up at the sound of this raw quartet, blasting away. This is the real deal, folks. Take out your Casinos
at work today and listen in and play along.
