The Beatles
 Apple Core Ltd.

The Beatles are releasing a massive collection of songs and studio banter from the band's widely heralded BBC sessions in 1963-64, including 37 performances of early classics and rare covers. "On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2" will be released Nov. 11 and includes over 60 tracks.

For many fans, the highlight of the collection will be the 23 previously unreleased recordings of conversation between Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr and the BBC hosts.

"There's a lot of energy and spirit," McCartney says of the tracks. "We are going for it, not holding back at all, trying to put in the best performance of our lifetimes."

"On Air" includes many of the band's early hits, including "Please Please Me," "Till There Was You" and "I Saw Her Standing There," as well as numerous covers of tracks by the likes of Chuck Berry and The Marvelettes. It will be released in 2-CD and 180-gram vinyl packages with a 48-page booklet containing essays on the history of The Beatles' BBC radio sessions and detailed commentaries on all of the tracks.

The collection is a follow-up to the multi-platinum "Live at the BBC" album released in 1994. A re-mastered version of that set will also be released in November.
