Picture Disc Vinyl LP!
Recorded by the Beatles and Tony Sheridan in Hamburg 1961. This disc contains
music sung by Tony Sheridan backed by the pre-Ringo Starr line-up of The Beatles
of George Harrison, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney with Pete Best on drums.
Riding the wave of the German beat craze of the early sixties, British singer
Tony Sheridan became a regular on the Hamburg club circuit, recruiting an
ever-changing roster of back-up musicians that included, in 1961, a nascent
Beatles featuring John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best.
Although still very much on the scene, bassist Stu Sutcliffe did not appear on
these sessions. While most of the songs here are covers sung by Sheridan, Lennon
and Harrison did write the instrumental "Cry For A Shadow". Hamburg is also
where the Beatles first picked up the mop-top.
