Bill Kenwright presents a two hour journey through many of the Beatles songs and interviews recorded at the BBC during the 60’s.
The Beatles played on 53 different radio shows between March 1962 and June 1965, giving no less than 275 performances of 88 different songs. Remarkably 36 of those songs were never issued on record while the group was in existence.
With the exception of Lennon/McCartney’s “I’ll Be On My Way”, these unreleased tracks were cover versions ranging from familiar rock ‘n’ roll numbers to some fairly obscure oddities.
Have fun !
The new release on the HMC / Copy Cat Chronicles label is “Reminiscing” – a copy of the Bill Kenwright documentary that was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on the August Bank Holiday weekend of 2009.
The programme’s highlights were archive recordings, some not heard for more than 40 years. But it’s pleasures were also to be found in the more ordinary moments of banter and Kenwright linked it all smoothly with an excitement (“we’ve only had a 30 second intro and already I’m in heaven” !) that felt genuine. He extended a hand to the listener: “You and I are going to hear some gems from the BBC archive”, he promised.
We can hear 60’s presenters trying to sound groovy with their quirky questions.
Brian Matthew came in for constant ribbing from the band: “their aim”, he said, “was to put me down in as good-natured way as possible”.
Producers spoke of barley controlled mayhem and sounded terrified, “they’s come to the studio and horse about”, we learned, “people getting locked in toilets, fooling about, lye on the floor.” It all sounded like sweet innocent japery.
Rather than just give you the broadcast as it was HMC have remixed and produced these tracks with their ‘Ambient Stereo’ feature and also added a couple of additional tracks of their own (extra tracks highlighted in blue below – hardly “a couple of tracks” !)
