It was also confirmed by Universal Music Oct. 23 that Best Buy will have the only exclusive version of “On Air: Live at the BBC, Volume 2” available from retailers. You can see the artwork on this page. The Best Buy version will contain five art cards of Beatles pictures from the sessions. Best Buy was also one of those that offered special editions of Paul McCartney's “NEW.” The Best Buy version also came with pictures and an additional album laminate. Best Buy also had a special version of "Wings Over America" that included the Cow Palace concert CD.
Both “On Air: The Beatles Live at the BBC, Volume 2” and the remastered “Live at the BBC” album are available for pre-order on iTunes. “On Air” and the remastered “Live at the BBC” will be released Nov. 11. And notice, by the way, the release date for the albums in the U.S. is on a Monday instead of the normal Tuesday.
