The Beatles - The Decca Tapes Deluxe Gatefold Edition VINYL LP DOL930HG
"Guitar groups are on their way out,” was what the biggest fool in rock & roll history wrote to Brian Epstein when he rejected the Beatles after listening to this audition tape, recorded at Decca Studios on New Year’s Day, 1962. Although the boys (with Pete Best on drums) were admittedly still finding their footing here, and the three Lennon-McCartney originals may be no match for “Love Me Do” (recorded just 10 months later), these 15 songs still have all the makings of a band whose stardom would soon obscure the sun.
