This appears to be a cdr with with a home made cover (no liner notes - blank inside) and a home printed cd tray liner (which seems to be hand trimmed). The company is "Berne Convention Records" with copyright apparently assigned to King Size Taylor (and "Made in Hamburg").

The track listing is essentially that of the original Japanese cd ("Overseas Records") with some shuffling of the order and minus "Hully Gully" and identical to that of the Lingasong 2 cd set (this "new" set has the extra songs found on the Japanese cd:"Where have you been..." and "I remember you").

UPDATE:
The sound quality is the same as both of the cds listed above (listenable given the circumstances of the original recording). My cdr had a problem with "crackling" noises on track 10 ("Besame Mucho").
Still it is a fascinating part of Beatles history.

Certainly this is one for the fans, as the sound is scrappy, the quality of the recording poor and the Beatles at times seem little interested in being there. Anyone who buys this will know the background dispute to the tapes well, the circumstances of the recording well and likely heard better versions of most of the songs on studio albums or at the BBC. But this is perhaps the only precious remnant which provides those of us too young to have heard the Beatles in their gig days something close to the experience. The flavour of a live gig in a pub or club is replicated surprisingly well, very rough and ready. Within a year of their Christmas 1962 stint in Hamburg they would be off conquering the world and these days must have seem a quaint and distant memory. These days, even pub bands will record endless hours of rehearsals and performances, storage on digital files being as simple as it is - the rarity of these recordings is a glimpse back in time to how unlikely it once was to record the moment in that pre-selfie era. Were it not the Beatles, then this recording would have sunk without a trace - but it is the Beatles so it is a slice of history.

Although the sound quality is rough (to say the least), it is far, far, far better to hear the gems as they were before they effectively 'took the world by storm' than those who nowadays spend hours on professional equipment. Only to come up with in comparison complete rubbish AND get paid a fortune for doing it.

The Beatles did the music because they loved the music, not because of what they thought they could get out of it.

Format: Audio CD
Sales of this original recording (from which all bootlegs are derived) have only ever been small in quantity. The constant legal disputes created by George Harrison and Eversheds have stopped it being produced and released on the High Street. The material is out of copyright, providing the distributor has access to the original 1962 tapes (we have) and not later Lingasong copies from 1974. It never came under English Copyright Law at any time anyway.
The CD is individually produced in small quantities and is of excellent quality. We have recently added further sleeve notes by Kingsize Taylor and more pictures. This is a piece of musical history - the only 'live' gig of The Beatles ever recorded. The banter between them and the audience was always a great part of their appeal and you can hear that here. Listen closely and you will see why George was the only one to want it banned.

absolutely fantastic to have this cd. thank you so much for making it available to beatle fans. the way they performed all the tracks at such a time at such an age and in such conditions always totally overwhelms me. in my opinion their unique performances never have and never will be beaten. these raw but powerful energetic performances even now today are just stunning to hear. oh to be back in time to see and hear them again just once.. this cd takes you there and what an experience it is. Thank you again.

Beatles Bootleg from Hamburg concerts in 1962 is a legend. I had 80's that 2LP but lost is same way.
But no now when it's in CD it's very good overview what Beatles sang in Hamburg those days.

I also visited Hamburg's Beatles museum couple years ago containing stuff on those days but unfortunately the museum is closed nowadays.
