Artists To Record Beatles Debut In 12 Hours
Could you record The Beatles' debut album in 12 hours? That's what Stereophonics and other bands plan to do as part of BBC Radio 2's "The Golden Age Of The Album" celebrations this February. They'll join Simply Red frontman Mick Hucknall, young songwriter Gabrielle Aplin and others to record songs from The Beatles' album "Please Please Me". If 12 hours sounds impossible, just remember that it's been done once before - by The Beatles themselves in 1963. The BBC will broadcast the event live from studios around the world as musicians and bands take part in the event. "The re-creation of 'Please Please Me' promises to be one of Radio 2's stand-out moments of 2013," said BBC Radio 2's Bob Shennan. "Hearing those tracks brought to life again with a contemporary twist will have the network buzzing as much as the original did. It's one album that changed the world of pop music and I think the 50th anniversary is a timely moment to remind everyone why." A TV tribute to "Please Please Me" will coincide with the event on BBC Four. Another show to air during the "Golden Age Of The Album" season will be "The Great Album Showdown", which pits celebrities and musicians against each other in deciding the best pop and rock records of all time. Have you ever set yourself a musical challenge? Should we arrange something equally ambitious on UG? Share your ideas in the comments.
