Beatles Cavern Club Recording Unearthed

A tape reel containing a recording of the Beatles performing at the Cavern Club in Liverpool has been found after 53 years and the tape is set to be auctioned next month.

Classic Rock reports: The recording of Some Other Guy was made in September 1962 - just four weeks before the Fab Four's debut single Love Me Do was released.

TV producer Johnnie Hamp found the reel in a desk drawer, and plans to auction it for charity next month. It was made because a crew had filmed the Beatles in the Cavern for an appearance on Granada TV's Know The North - but the sound quality was so poor that an overdub was required.

The show was never aired due to legal issues, but band manager Brian Epstein asked for five acetates to be made because he was so pleased with the tape. Read more here.
