Beatles - Beatles First Recordings To Be Released In Pre-Christmas Package
Fans of the Beatles are set for an early Christmas present - the group's earliest recordings with singer Tony Sheridan have been collected for a new double album package to mark the Fab Four's 50th anniversary.
The Beatles With Tony Sheridan: First Recordings features tracks the band performed with Sheridan as Polydor artists after bandleader and music executive Bert Kaempfert discovered them performing in a German nightclub in 1961.
The CD will be accompanied by a booklet full of rarely seen photographs, taken by one-time Beatles guitarist Stuart Sutcliffe's fiancee Astrid Kirchherr, band contracts, poster art for early shows and handwritten biographies by each member of the group.
The package will be released on 8 November (11).
