On Air - On Vinyl

Looks like it's a triple album, folks!

It's £29.99 and the first 1000 copies of the vinyl ordered from the official Beatles store will come with a FREE 14 Track Promotional Album CD. Another reason for purchasing this on LP is that the accompanying 48-page booklet will also look much nicer in the 12" format. Just like the old "Magical Mystery Tour" booklet looked better in 12" (USA) than in 7" (UK), prompting EMI to release it as an album in the U.K. back in 1976.

In 1994, The Beatles’ Live at the BBC was released to worldwide acclaim - hitting number one in the U.K. and number three in the U.S. and selling more than five million copies within six weeks.
A new companion to The Beatles’ first BBC collection, On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2, will now be released on 11 November.

On Air’s 63 tracks, none of which overlaps with The Beatles’ first BBC release, include 37 previously unreleased performances and 23 previously unreleased recordings of in-studio banter and conversation between the band’s members and their BBC radio hosts.

In the studios of the British Broadcasting Corporation, The Beatles performed music for a variety of radio shows. On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2 presents the sound of The Beatles seizing their moment to play for the nation. Thrilled to hear these exciting recordings again, Paul McCartney said, “There’s a lot of energy and spirit. We are going for it, not holding back at all, trying to put in the best performance of our lifetimes.”

Is it confirmed that this will include the book? I hope so. Also, is this the first Beatles triple vinyl release?

Ordered! :)

No no, the Anthologies appeared on tripple vinyl (unless I'm very much mistaken)

Did anybody got the 14 track sampler when ordering from The Beatles Store?
