CAVERN CLUB: Rise of the Beatles and Merseybeat

SPENCER LEIGH    Book Number: 90095    Product format: Paperback

A companion to Best of the Beatles and by the respected music journalist and BBC Radio Merseyside broadcaster Spencer Leigh, with a little help from Sir Paul McCartney who provides the Foreword, this is the story of the Cavern Club, the most famous club in the world. This is history as told by talking to the owners, hundreds of musicians who played there, the backroom staff and fans from its days as a jazz club through the Beatles years to the present. 'When we got into the Cavern, we were hit by that fabulous, intoxicating smell of cheap perfume, disinfectant and rotting fruit, which was very heady for fourteen year olds. The Beatles kicked into 'Some Other Guy' and that was like the end of life for me, and a whole new life began from that very moment.' - Willie Russell. 'The Cavern was the breeding ground for what would become the Beatles' early repertoire, and I will always think of the place with great affection for the day spent with my pals in its sweaty, damp atmosphere.' - Sir Paul McCartney. 250pp, paperback.
