An old recording found in a drawer in the UK might not seem so exciting, until you realise that it is a rare Beatles song stashed away
An early tape of the band has been found of them singing “Some other Guy” at a club in Liverpool in 1962 before their debut single was released has been discovered and everyone is excited about it.
Reports say that the sound quality was so bad on the TV footage that an additional taped sound was captured. “Granada sent a sound engineer back to the Cavern just to record audio, which was to be dubbed onto the film.”
The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein was so impressed with the recording that he asked for five acetate discs to be pressed from the tape to use as promotion. One of these five discs was sold at auction in 1993 for £16,000 to Apple Records, the label set up by The Beatles in 1968.
The tape is to be sold by auctioneer Adam Partridge
