Beatles fans have discovered that a new anthology of previously unreleased recordings of the band from mid-1960s appearances on BBC radio is due out this fall, The Guardian reports. MCA Music in the Philippines, a division of Universal Music, is releasing On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 in November.
The first volume was released in 1994 and featured 56 songs and 13 dialogue tracks from Beatles' appearances on the BBC.
The new anthology comes as a result of the 2012 Listener's Archive campaign asking the public to donate home-recorded radio and televesion shows to the BBC, which didn't begin archiving its material until the late Seventies.
The BBC will also be releasing a book, The Beatles – The Archives: 1962-1970, by Beatles scholar Kevin Howlett in October. The volume will includes detailed accounts of the Beatles' BBC appearances during that time.
