Liverpool To Hamburg 1960-1961
For the first six years of their career, the Beatles were essentially a covers band. When they were captured live on tape in two sets at the Star Club in Hamburg in December 1962, they played thirty-two songs, only two of which were their own compositions. Going into 1961, Silver Beatles sees the group broadening out their repertoire to include some of the Latin-influenced ‘uptown R&B’ numbers currently in vogue, along with more rock’n’roll, rockabilly and some gospel-style numbers.
This is an excellent compilation of songs…if you have volumes one and two and enjoyed them, this one is even better.
