Roots Of The Beatles


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.
