The Police Lost BBC Studio Tapes 78-79 Covers





This is a great compilation of what amounts to a very small number of tracks. The Police blew up so fast, the BBC was lucky to get them into what few sessions they held for the band as they emerged in London during the late 1970s. What's missing are the shows, obviously. Why their actual BBC concerts are still in the vaults is one of the great omissions.

The Police played several shows on the BBC that could be remastered into live albums of incredible quality--that is, if the tapes are any good. If not, spend the money to repair them and put this stuff out.

Their sessions, captured here, are not as spotty as they could have been. The covers? Ugh. Thanks for being as unoriginal as possible. But the music is more vital than ever.
