This is a copy of their Decca audition in 1962, minus the three Lennon/McCartney originals (‘Like Dreamers Do’, ‘Hello Little Girl’ and ‘Love Of The Loved’).

The Beatles sued the company shortly after this came out, and if you look at the ‘Anthology 1’ sleevenotes then you’ll notice that the songs are now owned by Apple.

It is interesting to wonder whether anyone else would have signed The Beatles on this performance. It’s easy to knock Dick Rowe in hindsight, but can you really hear anything special here?

Can you spot the mistake on the sleeve? Think about it… it contains songs from their Decca session, and the album is called The Complete ‘Silver’ Beatles – a name they dropped in 1960!
