Hard as it might be to believe, apparently there are still enough unreleased Beatles recordings to fill yet another compilation.

Multiple sources are reporting that Apple has set Oct. 3 as the release date for ‘Live at the BBC, Vol. 2,’ which arrives nearly 20 years after ‘Vol. 1.’ And like its predecessor, it compiles live performances that the Fab Four delivered within the walls of the U.K. radio giant’s studios.

The first volume, released in 1994, filled two CDs with 69 songs from appearances the band made between 1962-65. It’s unknown at this time how many tracks or discs ‘Vol. 2′ will boast, but it will focus on performances previously thought to be lost due to the BBC’s policy of erasing and reusing tapes after shows.

Between listeners who recorded the shows at home and syndicated stations that aired the broadcasts in other markets, Apple has apparently compiled enough rarities to round out a new album. The new volume may include some of the bonus tracks issued as B-sides on the ‘Baby It’s You’ single from ‘Vol. 1′ (‘I’ll Follow The Sun,’ ‘Devil In Her Heart’ and ‘Boys’)

‘Live at the BBC, Vol. 2′ will be released alongside a new book, titled ‘The Beatles: The BBC Archives: 1962-1970,’ written by Kevin Howlett, author of ‘The Beatles at the Beeb 1962-1965′ and ‘The Beatles at the BBC.’ It’s set to arrive in stores on Oct. 10.
