TJR says

The Beatles recorded an amazing number of exclusives for the BBC, albeit mainly cover versions reflecting their rock n roll roots of the 50s and early 60s. Many fans will be fascinated by over 2 hours of listening here, but, as interesting as it is, it's largely rather ho-hum, very much missing the studio trickery which enhanced their core albums.
