In 1994, The Beatles’ Live at the BBC was released to worldwide acclaim – hitting number one in the U.K., number three in the U.S. and selling more than five million copies within six weeks.

On Air will be released on Monday, November 11; the Mastered for iTunes LP includes a 48-page booklet.

Newly remastered, The Beatles’ Live at the BBC will also make its global digital debut on November 11 exclusively on iTunes. Sounding and looking better than ever, Live at the BBC’s Mastered for iTunes LP is also available now for pre-order exclusively on iTunes (www.iTunes.com/TheBeatles). This first collection of the group’s BBC sessions mixed versions of their hits with a treasure trove of 30 songs The Beatles performed on air but never released on record in the 1960s. The compelling track list ranges from a rare performance of the little known Lennon-McCartney original “I’ll Be On My Way” to covers of classic rock ‘n’ roll and contemporary rhythm and blues songs. At the time of its original release, Live at the BBC was hailed by Rolling Stone as “an exhilarating portrait of a band in the process of shaping its own voice and vision.” It earned a GRAMMY ® Award nomination for Best Historical Album.
