at Liverpool's Parr Street Studios in April 2016, the new CD
was a result of the Quarrymen's trip to Japan in September
2015 when they were invited to appear in Tokyo and Osaka with
one of Japan's top bands, the High-Lows. Sakito Shirabe, the
High-Lows bass player who performed with the Quarrymen in
Japan, appears with the Quarrymen on bass on the CD.
Pianist Mike Neary also guests on some of the numbers.
The CD features 15 tracks, many of
them of particular significance in the history of the
Quarrymen, including "Twenty Flight Rock" - the song
which got Paul McCartney into the Quarrymen; "Come go
with me" - the song the Quarrymen were singing on stage
in 1957 when Paul first saw John perform; "Puttin' on the
Style" and "Baby, Let's play house", recorded
by Bob Molyneux at the St Peter's Church Dance that same day;
"In spite of all the Danger" and "That'll be
the day" recorded at Percy Phillip's studio in 1958
and John's "In my Life".
The 12 page CD booklet boasts an
introduction by Beatle Biographer (and Quarrymen Biographer)
Hunter Davies, some great photos of the band in Liverpool by
Kozo Fukuoka and the words to all the songs.
