When it rains it pours and Beatles fans have reason to celebrate today.
After several weeks of rumors concerning a new Beatles album, amazon.com is now taking orders for it.
The album, titled ‘On Air – Live At the BBC Volume 2, is a two disc set and will be released on November 11.
And there’s more.
Pete Howlett is a well respected researcher of The Beatles and has just completed a new book on the group, especially their recordings made for the BBC. His involvement with the new release was indispensable, as is his new book”The Beatles: The BBC Archives 1962-1970″.
Another Beatles researcher, Mark Lewisohn, who cataloged the group’s studio recordings in an earlier book, also has a new trilogy of Beatles books starting with “Tune In” hitting stores on October 29, the same day as Pete Howlett’s book.
I pre-ordered my copy of the books and album earlier today.
It’s a good time to be a Beatles fan.
