If anyone has ever imagined being in singing the songs recording an album with their favorite singers and in the same condition in which it was made, Mick Hucknall and Stereophonic, along with other artists re-recorded the first album by The Beatles in the same way they did it.
It sounds crazy and it really is, but it is. If The Beatles could record their first album in 1963, recording studios in London's Abbey Road and in just 12 hours, making it a success worldwide and number one in the charts for 30 weeks.
The BBC, combining radio and television, is willing to take this risk 50 years later with the likes of Mick Hucknall, the former leader the group Simply Red, and Welsh rock band, Stereophonic.
The BBC Radio 2 is responsible for organizing this challenge as part of the celebration "The Golden Age of the Album" that will last two weeks and it will be aired on BBC Four, Radio 2 and 6 Music.También be filmed for a BBC Four special entitled "12 Hours to Please Me".
This challenge will be on February 11 the very day on which they reach 50 years of recording the first album of The Beatles "Please Please Me" in which a marathon workday could top ten songs recorded of a total of fourteen included as "Love me Do" and "PS I Love you" was recorded in September 1962.
Richard Klein, manager of BBC Four, said: "I am delighted to celebrate the golden era of music on TV and radio". And no wonder since it will go over, in addition to the first Beatles album, other albums from such legendary artists as Bob Dylan, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and many others. A very special event to be recorded in musical notes in gold and platinum.
