Product Description

Product Description

A live set by Rory Storm & The Hurricanes professionally recorded at the Jive Hive Liverpool, 5th March 1960. Ringo Starr was his drummer back then. Although the history of Merseybeat & the growth of the Beatles have been examined in forensic detail there are still discoveries to be made & sometimes something special comes along that is both unexpected and exciting. How come over 50 years on we now have a full set from Rory Storm & The Hurricanes in 1960? They are on great form and whats more the set has been professionally recorded. As someone who has followed every niche of Merseybeat I have never come across anything like this & I am delighted to be telling you about it. Although up to 125 Liverpool beat groups were performing at any one time over the city and it's suburbs precious few live recordings were made & this is the first time that a full set from a Merseyside group recorded before 1963 has been released. The fact that this dates from the early times, March 1960 (that is before anyone had gone to Hamburg) makes it even more thrilling. At that time there were only 30 rock & roll groups operationally on Merseyside. This is also likely to be the only recordings we have of Rory Storm with his then drummer Ringo Starr.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rory Days 23 Sep 2012
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Discovered by the sister of the late singer Irene Caldwell on a reel to reel tape this is more important as a musical document than of some underrated singer who tried to sound like Cliff Richard sounding like Elvis.
The fact will always remain that because Ringo Starr was the drummer the Liverpool group known as Rory Storm & the Hurricanes will always have a degree of fame in spite of less than 10 recorded tracks most of which were on a Various Artists LP called Merseybeat with a single one produced by Brian Epstein of a song from West Side Story.But imagine the chosen song had been Now Is The Hour which ends this session.It had been revived by Gene Vincent same as You'll Never Walk Alone and cut have easily hit (the song had first hit in the States by Gracie Fields in the late 40s)
Irene Caldwell was married for a time to one Bernard Jewry who became Shane Fenton and later Alvin Stardust
The name also meant that 2 lots of Hurricanes would play in Hamburg the others being former hitmakers Johnny & the Hurricanes.
And with the Hurricanes'version of Honey Don't here it would mean that Ringo Starr had played on it BEFORE the Beatles

4.0 out of 5 stars What's the Story (Warning: Rory) 19 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Forgetting the groups of which everyone has heard, for students of Merseybeat, the best things to be released in the past decade or so is the three CD series from Viper. Of those 60 tracks, just 17 were from the pre Klondike era (that is pre-1963) and many of those were poorly recorded on rather primitive home equipment. Unfortunately, as no-one had any reason to keep anything in those days the tapes were more often than not re-used, a fate that also befell anything that was recorded on stage, which is why there's next to nothing around from this period. Many thought the well had run dry until someone recently discovered something rather exciting; a complete 45 minute live show by Rory Storm and the Hurricanes.

Taped on 5th March 1960 at the Liverpool Hall (known as the Jive Hive), Crosby, 15 live songs, top and tailed by so-brief-you'll-miss-it stage announcements, are augmented by four home recordings. What makes this find historically important is twofold; this is the only known performance of a complete show by a Merseybeat artist before Christmas 1962 to have surfaced, and it's the earliest known recording to feature one Ringo Starr. This month (September) is also the 40th Anniversary of Rory Storm's death.

Due to the archaic nature of the recordings (one mic was taped to the singer's microphone; the other hung over the stage) the vocals are far more prominent and the backing does seem rather out of time. Despite the best efforts of everyone, including Rory trying to sound as American as possible even during song introductions and failing miserably, the audience doesn't appear too enthusiastic. The Hurricanes get their turn on two instrumentals and `Bye Bye Love', complete with stressed "baibee", all three of which has the drums overpowering the guitars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Important historical item 13 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
For a performance recorded at a club, the sound is remarkably good. The CD is a valuable item for any Beatles fan because, of course, Ringo's playing drums. The CD sounds like the band is having fun, although the skill of the musicians is a bit basic. All in all for an historical piece this CD is worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rory Stormed 24 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I always wanted to hear what the beat groups of Liverpool sounded like before Beatlemania and this is a fair appraisal yes there are bum notes and out of tune guitars at times but this is excellent sound for 1960 and very raw and crisp music. Rory Storms vocals are better on some songs than others but nevertheless i would of liked to have seen them live judging by this CD!!!
