Note: All of the songs are unique BBC recordings except “Beatle Bones” which is rough mix of the “Plain Brown Wrapper” version. Both sessions are not in the BBC archives anymore, so this has been sourced from various off-air recordings. The lofi quality fits the music very well and this is the best these tapes have ever sounded (plus finally in the correct speed!). These were two seminal sessions and it is important that they are once again made available. Nothing sounded like this before, and nothing ever will.
