beatles20082013 Update: The Beatles Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963 back on iTunes

Earlier this morning, fast-acting Beatles fans might’ve gotten ahold of The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963, a rare 59-song collection that was briefly released on iTunes. The $40 set, which has since been pulled, featured over two hours of previously unreleased (but often bootlegged) material, including demos, album outtakes, and BBC performances.

The release was purchasable for only a few hours and only in a few select countries. It’s believed that The Beatles and their label, Apple Corps, made the collection available in order to extend its tracks’ 50-year copyright. Because the songs were published (even for a short time), they will be protected for up to 70 years, according to the newest iteration of European Union copyright laws which favors officially released material.

Update: At the time of the original article’s publishing, the album was not on iTunes. As of today (12/20), however, the collection appears to be available for purchase.

The collection included various takes of “There’s A Place”, “Misery”, and “Thank You Girl”, as well as recordings of “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Roll Over Beethoven”, and “Love Me Do”, taken from BBC sessions circa 1963.
