Product Description

About the Artist

Skiffle was the impetus, exploding onto the scene in January 1956 with Lonnie Donegan s Rock Island Line. Rocknroll had hit the British charts in late 1955 with Bill Haley's Rock Around The Clock, but to play rock, you had to be accomplished on proper instruments. Skiffle was more democratic. Raw, amateurish and derivative, its use of found and homemade instruments such as tea chests, box basses, washboards and kazoos meant that any scruffy bunch of enthusiastic teenagers with just a guitar between them could have a go and make a half decent sound. It has been estimated that no less than 250,000 guitars were imported into the UK during 1957. But there was more to the early Beatles than skiffle and rocknroll. Paul was encouraged by his father to listen to jazz and dance bands. Julia, John's mother taught him to play George Formby songs on her banjo. And on the radio, there was a constant diet of light music. All this contributed to make the Beatles musical tastes more eclectic than their contemporaries. Between 1957 and 1962, the band established a repertoire of over 600 songs for their live set, enabling them to perform in many different settings jazz clubs, strip clubs, folk clubs, working men s clubs, church dances, rocknroll joints. Music had to be tailored to the occasion and the Beatles great enthusiasm for popular music of all forms enabled them to do this. The popular mythology behind how they managed to hear all the great obscure records coming out of the USA relies on the fact that Liverpool was a major port and suggests that sailors were constantly bringing suitcases full of discs home with them from trips to America. In fact there is very little evidence for this to be the case. The idea that the teenage Beatles would hang around the docks waiting to meet up with stray sailors clutching handfuls of shellac records sounds rather amusing but is highly implausible. Most of the songs the Beatles learned were released in the UK and from 1957 onwards, they were avidly following the weekly music charts, keeping up to date with everything that was coming out.

Format:Audio CD
There are several CD collections available of original recordings of songs by various artists of which The Rolling Stones later recorded cover versions of and made their own. This is by far the best quality collection of the genre available at this time. (Where is volume two?) The sound quality on the transfers is excellent considering the age and sources of the original recordings. Also the colour booklet is excellent with well written notes about the music. As the new EU copyright law on public domain recordings is pushed back to 70 years, collections such as this may become difficult to find. Get it while you can!
