The Only Ones is the debut studio album by English power pop band The Only Ones, released in 1978 by Columbia Records. It was produced by the Only Ones themselves, with the assistance of Robert Ash and was mixed at Basing S. Escape and CBS. The album was re-released in Europe in 2009 on Sony Music Entertainment, featuring rare bonus content. The reissue was a CD which comprises 13-tracks. It includes the original album digitally remastered from the original 1/2" mix tapes; alongside three bonus tracks.
The BBC has deemed many records unfit for air since it began radio transmissions in the 1920s. Songs have been considered unbroadcastable for countless reasons, though offenders have frequently breached rules on religious grounds, and because of drug references, profanity and attacks on the monarchy. The fact it was so topical actually worked against the song that would became the singer's first big hit - for a few weeks anyway - when the BBC refused to play it until Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins had landed safely back down to earth.
The strength of the BBC was that it was able to manage change and their welcome to the Beatles was magnanimous and the Beatles’ willingness to put a girdle round the earth to get on the air was almost selfless. They worked like dogs – once recording eighteen songs in one day (16 July 1963). At first, knowing the value of radio they were glad and proud to use it. In the end, they did it as a duty but nonetheless, long after grabbing world fame, they continued to talk to Britain with a good spirit for, I presume, scale fees
From 1962 to 1965, the Beatles made 52 appearances on the BBC, recording live-in-the-studio performances of both their official releases and several dozen songs that they never issued on disc. This magnificent two-disc compilation features 56 of these tracks, including 29 covers of early rock, R&B, soul, and pop tunes that never appeared on their official releases, as well as the Lennon-McCartney original "I'll Be on My Way," which they gave in 1963 to Billy J. Kramer rather than record it themselves.

Live at the BBC is not particularly notable as a collection of rarities, though 30 of these songs were never recorded by the Beatles for their own record label, EMI, and one previously unreleased Lennon-McCartney song (the sweet I’ll Be on My Way, tossed to Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas for a B side back in the day) is included. Completists probably have all of this stuff in (sonically inferior) bootleg form anyway, and enough equally worthy material from the BBC sessions exists that a third disc would have been well justified
