John Lennon (vocals, guitar) with Pete Shotten (washboard), Eric Griffiths (guitar), Len Garry (tea-chest bass), Rodney Davis (banjo) and Colin Hanton (drums). Paul McCartney met John this day for the first time. This was originally an Elvis Presley hit. The source recording was taped by amateur recording enthusiast Bob Molyneux on his portable Grundig TK8 reel-to-reel machine. The complete recording contained performances by the George Edwards Band and their support act, The Quarrymen. In 1963 after the Beatles made it to national fame Bob discovered he still had two of the Quarrymen songs on tape. This one, and part of Lonnie Donegan's Puttin' On The Style. Bob attempted to contact John to see if he was interested in the tape but never received a reply. Bob's tape and the recorder were auctioned to Sotheby's in September 1994. On the 50th anniversary of the recording, this recording along with the first verse of Puttin' On The Style were broadcasted on a BBC Radio 2 documentary called The Day John Met Paul. Track 2 on this CD.
