1 stars Shock, horror, chopper gives one star to Beatles album!

Well, you certainly get the feel and the atmosphere of the early Hamburg days of the Beatles on this record but be warned, these songs were recorded by a fellow musician ("Kingsize" Taylor) on a handheld tape recorder and it took a lot of work to get them to a sufficient quality to release, and even then they're extremely rough.

These recordings are of interest to Beatle fanatics such as myself but they're really only the sort of thing you'd listen to once or twice. There are a few tracks that resurfaced on the early studio albums (A Taste of Honey, Mr Moonlight, I Saw Her Standing There and of course Twist and Shout) but most are cover versions which The Beatles used to fill their sets up to the required 12 hours!

It is said that "When I'm 64" was written around this time but there's no sign of anything like that here. Strictly for Beatle fanatics only.
