Is it out yet? I didnt think it was out till this week or next. In any case, whether the track listing makes it 'worth it' or not, I'd still like to listen to it

When first broadcast, pop fans were amazed to hear such witty irreverence on the rather formal BBC and it is great fun to hear these extracts now.

I recall these broadcasts live from the BBC. John Lennon constantly coming out with off-the-cuff quips and the others joining in, in the background, was a revelation to us. In those days the UK was still run like it was war time. They never lost the grip. The upper middle classes ran the BBC and put out what they liked or what they thought the masses ought to like, which was not popular music for sure. They spoke in accents that sounded rather silly us.

The only pop music broadcast by the BBC was on Saturday club that went from I think 9.00 am to either noon or 1 pm on the BBC Light channel (Light meant light music). Most was live broadcasts because of musicians union agreements. They rightly feared their jobs would be a risk if only recorded sound were broadcast. On Saturday afternoon there was the Jack Jackson show (he was the UKs first real proper DJ with semi-jingles and the likes), who would be ordered to play a mix of songs, some popish - DJs in the BBC never chose the songs. The first DJ to choose his own songs and did until he died, was John Peel from 1967 when the BBC changed for good (he came from Heswall near Liverpool). On Sunday the BBC would have family Favourites, which played some pop songs. This show was requests from family members aboard, like in Hong Kong, Australia, NZ, Canada and many in the forces as the British empire was still quite large then and the forces were scattered all over the globe. Later in the 60s they had live link ups with Australian and Canadian DJs. That was it. Local radio stations were unheard of. Private stations were unheard of. We had to tune into Radio Luxemburg (Luxie to us), which had such a weak signal you could hardly hear it and only when the sun went down.

Then in 1963 the pirate radio stations emerged, broadcasting from anchored ships just outside of the 3 mile limit. The first was Radio Caroline and within months they were all around the coast. It was heaven! 24/7 they broadcast all the records we wanted to hear. The DJs were snappier and far better than anything the BBC could give us with their jingles. They even had news bulletins (with content ripped off from the BBC), and adds of course, which the BBC never had.

In 1967 the pirate stations were made illegal, by I think provisioning them from the UK. The BBC was forced to change for good introducing channels: Radio's 1, 2, 3, 4 and later 5 and recently 6. The top DJs on the pirate ships were hired by the BBC, who even took their jingles with them. The BBC had to join them kicking and screaming. But the BBC's Radio 1 does play some untried and new bands and music as it does not have to be dictated to by advertisers. So from initially holding popular music back, the BBC now does exactly the reverse.

Any meaty, controversial conversation is stamped out. "I love George" is what is wanted here and they've finally got what they want - a bland,sickly sweet fan site.

I think it's a nice sounding set with plenty of songs that weren't on the first volume. Yes it's a shame that a song like "Dream baby" wasn't included.
Which I will take care off now.

02 Dream Baby.mp3

Still only a few more songs and all the songs peformed on the BBC would have been included. While the sound quality is not that good I think something still could be done. It's not that much worse then some of the other peformances.
Still it's nice to have "I am talking about you" and "Beatiful Dreamer" officially released on this set. And like I said still plenty of songs not included on the first volume, while the others are ofcourse different peformances.

I think it's a nice selection for the casual fans. Fans who want it all already will have one of the many bootleg sets out there.

I also got the remastered first volume. While not an huge improvement over the originall release there is apparently a whole lot less use of noise reduction, with a slightly improved sound overall. Some missing photo's in the rearanged booklet. And while John could be seen holding a BBC microphone on page 5 of the original release, looking very faked we can now see the original photo.

Nice to have them both, I only should not have ordered them seperatly but together in the box, but that's my faulth.

It's a bit more then about Paul's latest album!

What has surprised me enormously is that there are differences in the musical content, too! And I'm not talking about better sound. The second track on CD 1, 'From Us to You', has received a superimposed voice announcing the Beatles that is not in the 1994 CD and that, as far as I recall, is not in the original broadcast of 28th February 1964. I don't know where it has been taken from. Also, a speech snippet has been added as track 17 ('What Is It, George?'), as an introduction to 'Soldier of Love'. As for CD 2, 'Have a Banana!' has been removed, and replaced by 'Ringo? Yep!'. And a second 'From Us to You' has been added at the end.
