Presenting Green Day’s The BBC Sessions Part 1, Limited Edition 7” Vinyl! This badass platinum white vinyl features newly mastered recordings from a live 1994 performance on BBC Radio One in England. We want to make sure you get a chance to get this limited special release, so we are giving first dibs to our awesome Oakland Coffee Club subscribers."

The BBC Sessions Part 1 was recorded live during the Dookie World Tour on June 8, 1994 at Maida Vale Studios in London, England, U.K. for play on BBC Radio One. These recordings have notoriously been included on many bootlegs, but did not recieve an official release until 2021 when Green Day announced they would be remastering them to release as their seventh live album, BBC Sessions.

To promote the album Green Day released two limited edition EPs, each containing two songs from the recordings: The BBC Sessions Part 1 and The BBC Sessions Part 2.
