Reference Library: Great Dane BBC Box Set

Newsgroups: rec.music.beatles
From: kerr@ycc.kodak.com (Jeff Kerr)
Subject: Great Dane BBC Box Set Track List
Date: Tue, 13 Dec 1994 16:05:29 GMT


Lately I've gotten several requests for my track listing of the Great Dane BBC box set.

The Complete BBC Sessions is a bootleg 9 CD box set from Great Dane Records, Italy. Total running time is approximately 10 hrs. 16 min. It is comprised of all the available recordings (from private collectors) of The Beatles appearences on BBC radio from March '62 to June '65. (All of these recordings couldn't have been recorded off the air because a couple from '64 are clearly the working recording sessions.) There were a total of 52 known appearences (not counting interviews), of which this collection has 44 (complete and partial).

I have compiled a track listing of the 9 CDs plus the unavailable performances. Since the source is from the tapes of collectors, the sound quality ranges from very poor to excellent. I've made an attempt to grade each song: P (poor), G (good), VG (very good), E (excellent)

To keep my sanity, I didn't try to be that precise with the grading. I just used my intitial reaction to each song. So some would undoubtably rate some "G"s as "P"s, "VG"s as "E"s, and so on. I just wanted to give an idea of how much the sound quality varies. Of course this reflects just the sound not the performance (which IMO is excellent throughout).

I highly recommend this box set to anyone who wants all the BBC broadcasts (especially if one doesn't already have many BBC bootlegs). Others may find this overwhelming and repetitious. Some may want to seek out a good compilation. And (finally!) there is the new "Live at the BBC" from EMI.

One last note: I have heard that Great Dane is to release a 2 CD update to the box set this coming February.
