THE BEATLES - The Days In Their Life




THE BEATLES: The Days In Their Life

A thirty-hour chronology tracing the life of four musicians who had a dramatic effect on directions taken by others. The group that inspired and redefined the boundaries of contemporary music.

Below is the press release accompanying the set from TM Productions at the time of release in 1981:

"The Beatles: The Days In Their Life" is a 30-hour chronological study of the band that did more to change the scope of popular music than any other force of the 1960's.
During the first 24 hours of the special, every song ever recorded by The Beatles is played, including several numbers never released. Because the producers have gained access to the original EMI masters, some songs previously heard only in mono are now in stereo.

The final 6 hours of the show trace the direction each of The Beatles took after the band dis-banded in December 1970. All information is completely up-to-date as of the date of release in 1981.

"The Beatles: The Days In Their Life" includes hundreds of interviews with The Beatles themselves and their associates, many of which have never been heard.
While "The Beatles: The Days In Their Life" is 30 hours long and is designed to run as a blockbuster, the show may also be stripped into one-hour segments if so desired.
This twenty-one volume set contains the entire Days In Their Life program as it was originally broadcast in the early Eighties. The Days In Their Life was originally pressed onto thirty vinyl LP records. It was these vinyl LPs that radio stations used as a source for their broadcasts. The collection presented here is sourced from one of these original broadcast vinyl LP sets.

  1. I THANK YOU AS I'M SURE MILLIONS DO ALSO. I COULD NEVER GATHER ALL THIS AND SO MUCH MORE YOU OFFER. BEING BORN IN 1946 WHEN I BECAME AWARE OF AND LISTENING TO MUSIC, I HAVE ENJOYED SO MANY STYLES. MUSIC WOULD IN TEN OR SO YEARS BE CHANGING INTO DIFFERENT TYPES AND KINES OF STYLES.I WAS FORTUNATE TO STILL BE IN THE TIMES OF THE CROONERS, BIG BANDS, AND GROUPS STILL RECORDING AND PREFORMING A SOFT AND SWEET APPROACH TO THE OPPOSITE SEX. I CONSIDER MY SELF BLESSED TO HAVE ALL THESE STYLES IN MY LISTENING OF MUSIC, OVER THE DECKADES, THAT WAS ALWAYS CHANGING.

  2. Thank you very much for these. I had volumes 1-6 for a year but could never find the rest. Now I have the whole set. Volumes 3 and 4 for some reason were a different bit rate. They had been downsampled to 112 from the original 192. Luckily I had my copies of those in the higher bit rate. If you would you like to replace your 112's with the 192's let me know and I would be happy to let you have them.
    Thanks again

    1. Would be happy to replace, I think the Vols' in the ones I have on the external storage are better encodes. The ones to sample from this page are lower quality than the set on the external storage. VOL 1-8 on the external page are higher quality is what I mean. You can contact me from the link at top left of side bar.

  5. So glad to have found these! I remember the weekend this aired: Memorial Day weekend, 1981. The Summer after Lennon was taken from us. As a brand new Beatles fan, I was thrilled to get a 30 hour preview of all the albums I didn't own yet.
    The humorous thing about that weekend: While this was airing, uninterrupted, in Oklahoma City on KATT-FM, the rival rock station, KXXY-96X had switched to a Country format that same weekend. To let everyone know that there was a change, it played the same song, "You're the reason God made Oklahoma" on continuous loop for the entire three day weekend. So, if you were a rock listener who didn't particularly care for the Beatles, you didn't have a choice for other Rock and Roll that weekend.
