Product Description

Product Description

The two years The Beatles spent playing covers in clubs on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg, Germany taught them the basics of their beloved music and that immersion in all things rock 'n' roll and RnB made them the most prolific hitmakers ever. These 23 songs from such greats as The Coasters, Carl Perkins and even Nat King Cole illustrate just where they got it from. The collection was compiled by Dave Henderson (Mojo) who also provides the sleevenotes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Roots of the Beatles 25 Feb 2010
By Rachel
This compilation is a lot better than the Beatles jukebox but not as good as the Quarrymen Skiffle and Quarrymen Rock'n'roll CDs. They've picked the wrong version of Cryin Waitin Hopin here. George learned his guitar solo from the Jack Hansen recording - not the Picks. Why Wilbert Harrison's version of Kansas City and not Little Richards? And why Nat King Cole rather than Emil Ford?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the first nor the last 13 Oct 2010
By Richard
A little more research is needed for these sort of comps-the first of which was LOVE 'EM DO and this repeats the same mistake re Kansas City-that the Little Richard version was the model for the Beatles' version and NOT Wilbert Harrison whose No 1 success no doubt inspired the idea of Little Richard's cover.
As for Red Sails in the Sunset-the obvious model for this was the Tab Hunter version which has been the B side of the No I hit Young love.
The 2 CDs on Rhythm and Blues Records-Beatles Beginnings- are nearer the mark and should serve as the yardstick for all future CDs of this kind
