beatles-bootleg-recordings-1963Con la segunda parte de “Live at the BBC” todavía fresca en los estantes de las tiendas, ha sido publicado “The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963 via iTunes, una explotación excesiva del legado de uno de los grupos más importantes, si no el que más, de la historia de la música pop. ¿Por qué tanto nuevo material del grupo en tan poco tiempo?

Muchos están especulando con la posibilidad de que estas últimas rarezas de los Beatles hayan sido publicadas para restablecer los copyrights de las grabaciones de los Beatles. Las nuevas leyes de derechos de autor de la Unión Europea estipulan que los Beatles y su sello discográfico pueden poseer el material durante un periodo de hasta 70 años si este es oficialmente publicado.

Se trata de 59 canciones de primera época del grupo, del año en que publicaron los excelentes “Please Please Me” y “With ”. Las cosas por entonces iban así, los Beatles publicaron un par de LPs al año en 1963, 1964 y 1965, además de un buen puñado de brillantes singles y extended plays.

Canciones frescas como “I Saw Her Standing There”, “There´s a Place” o “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, en tomas demo de studio y en directo en la BBC, que nos retrotraen a sus orígenes de rock and roll y rhythm and blues. Una pasada, al margen de otro tipo de consideraciones.

Destacan las dos últimas canciones “I´m In Love” y “Bad To Me” (abajo vídeo), dos de aquellas composiciones que Lennon y McCartney cedieron a otros grupos al ir totalmente sobrados de ideas y de repertorio.

Otros artistas han adoptado un enfoque similar a los Beatles a remolque de las nuevas leyes europeas de derechos de autor (Beach Boys, Motown, Bob Dylan). Han publicado a toda prisa grabaciones raras en los últimos meses sin apenas publicidad.

Se ha sabido que representantes de Apple (la empresa de informática) y Capitol Records no han querido comentar nada, y un publicista de Apple Corps (la discográfica de toda la vida de los Beatles) no ha querido contestar a llamadas telefónicas.
