Exclusive New Beatles Images

A new Beatles release is always cause for celebration, with this one more than most.

In 1994, Live at the BBC was unleashed; a double album featuring a whole series of never-before-heard recordings and between-song chats made for the BBC which captured the band honing their sound and vision whilst entertaining the nation via the Corporation's airwaves. It sold 5 million copies worldwide and garnered huge critical acclaim everywhere, particularly for the insight it gave into the band's characters via the unscripted, light-hearted chats between takes.

Now, nearly 20 years on, a second volume is being released, featuring 37 previously unreleased music tracks, and 23 newly available spoken tracks - including 10 songs that were never recorded for EMI. On Air - Live at the BBC Volume Two includes recordings of five number ones, plus a raft of rock 'n' roll and rhythm and blues covers performed by the fab four.

To celebrate this release, we're delighted to share two exclusive never-before-seen images of the group below - both capture them in their youthful era, together with their distinctive style, copied the nation over.

In fact, we're off now to get a moptop haircut, some round-framed glasses and a left-handed bass. We'll be huge, just watch.

On Air - Live at the BBC Volume Two is released November 11. Click here to preorder the album

Live at the BBC Volume 1 is also remastered and reissued on November 11. Click here to preorder the album
