The title of this album is a little misleading, because not a single song from this set was recorded in 1960. Although The Beatles certainly arrived in Hamburg during that year, the Tony Sheridan sessions were not recorded until June 1961 and April 1962. Half of the songs don’t even feature The Beatles at all – but were later additions from Tony’s German album.

It is interesting to note that this LP was released during the same month as their last studio album, ‘Let It Be’ – a couple of bookends to their career.
