In 1994, The Beatles’ Live at the BBC was released to worldwide acclaim – hitting number one in the U.K. and number three in the U.S. and selling more than five million copies within six weeks. Now comes a new companion to The Beatles’ first BBC collection, On Air Live at the BBC Volume 2. On Air’s 63 tracks, none of which overlaps with The Beatles’ first BBC release, include 37 previously unreleased performances and 23 previously unreleased recordings of in-studio banter and conversation between the band’s members and their BBC radio hostsRead More

The Guess Who always seemed a bit like the Canadian predecessor/counterpart to Grand Funk Railroad, but they typically fared far better with the critics because of the versatility that they possessed. That trait is very evident on this collection of hits and great songs. From the opening “These Eyes,” with its orchestral strings and Zombies-like baroque pop feel to the classic AOR crunge of “American Woman,” The Guess Who played a wide variety of musicRead More

The Beatles always stood apart from their peers, a self-evident statement that sadly extended to the treatment of their catalog in the digital age. Where all their peers, from the Byrds to the Who, have had their catalogs remastered and reissued in deluxe editions, sometimes several times, the Beatles remained stuck in the early days of digital, their 14 albums plus Past Masters singles collection remaining untouched since 1987. Anniversaries came and went, but no remasters arrived until the release of the video game The Beatles Rockband pushed a long-overdue revamping of the band’s entire catalog into the stores on 9-9-09. This reissue campaign corrects almost all the problems of the original 1987 CDsRead More

An impressive and delightfully exhausting 50 tracks capture the spirit of the Beatles’ music on this double-CD compilation that imitates The White Album in look, just as the immaculate Boston Does the Beatles double LP from 1988 did. There are so many highlights in the over 150 minutes of music (almost an hour more than the approximately 97-minute aforementioned Boston Does the Beatles) that it is hard to be fair to all involved by leaving out names, when so much of this is so very good. Jeremy Morris submits an authentic “It’s All Too Much,” while Al Kooper dramatically revises “Eleanor Rigby” to wonderful effectRead More
