The Quarrymen - 1957 to 1960 (Part One).

This is another selection of material from The Quarrymen dating back to 1957.

Some of this material is a duplication on the first Quarryman bootleg featured on Beehive Candy, however this is from an alternative CD source and the sound quality is much cleaner.

With the amount of interest generated by John Lennon's first band (joined by Paul McCartney & George Harrison along the way) it is not surprising that many versions of the same material have surfaced down the years. The obvious historical nature of the recordings continues to fascinate fans over four decades on.

This is the first of three features and inevitably the sound quality is average (but quite listenable) and their will be some more duplication of material.

Art work from the CD boots is included in the download files.

Source: Live, studio and home (reel tapes).
