Primary location in my collectionCD: Strong Before Our Birth
Recorded at Paul McCartney's house at 20 Forthlin Row Allerton, Liverpool with Stu Sutcliffe recently added on bass. Since the group was drummerless at the time, occasional percussion can be heard by Paul's younger brother Mike. George Harrison does not appear to be present on the recording. Paul recalls this as part of a collection of recordings made in his bathroom over Easter vacation in 1960, so the estimated recording date listed here is around April 1960 at a time when they were calling themselves 'The Beatals'. A version of this track that has been artificially lengthened by a looping edit appears on disc 1 track 17 of the Wild Cat bootleg CD, also in this collection. There it is titled 'Improvisation #1'. This version is a better speed-corrected, unlooped version. Track 7 on disc 1 of this CD set. Estimated release date known to be in 2007.
