Could The Beatles Release A Second Dose Of BBC Material?

Fan speculation mounts...
The Beatles - Live At The BBC

The Beatles could be set to release a series of BBC recordings later this year.

During the early years of British pop music, fans had only a few outlets for the music they loved. Broadcasting was restricted to the BBC, who employed a system known as 'needle time' - essentially limiting the amount of times a recording could be played.

As a result, broadcasting house fostered a culture of recording artists live in session. The Beatles recorded countless BBC sessions, often unveiling new material or even throwing in a few covers from their Cavern days.

Much bootlegged, 1994's doubt set 'The Beatles At The BBC' appeared to be the final word on this era - until now. Beatles fans have picked up on a message sent by MCA Music in the Philippines.

In it, the agency appeared to suggest that a second instalment of live sessions was on the way, with Beatles blog WogBlog picking up on the news.

The blog have managed to uncover potential cover art, even going as far as to track down the original photographer. As yet, no one from Universal's UK and US wings have commented on the story.
