There were a lot of people who used to belong to the 'inner circle' of The Beatles, like Freda Kelly, but also Rory Storm's sister

Iris Caldwell who, in cooperation with some people who also love the music (Tony Barrett, Spencer Leigh, Dave 'The Rave') officially released the newly found recordings 'LIVE ATH THE JIVE HIVE' (March 1960)

of Rory Storm & The Hurricanes, featuring Ringo Starr on drums, on CD! 
Although the history of Merseybeat & the growth of the Beatles have been examined in forensic detail there are still discoveries to be made & sometimes something special comes along that is both unexpected and exciting.

How come that over 50 years later we now have a full set from Rory Storm & The Hurricanes from 1960? They are on great form and what's more, the set has been professionally recorded.
As someone who has followed every niche of Merseybeat I have never come across anything like this & I am delighted to be telling you about it. Although up to 125 Liverpool beat groups were performing at any one time over the city and it's suburbs precious few live recordings were made & this is the first time that a full set from a Merseyside group recorded before 1963 has been released. 
The fact that this dates from the early times, March 1960 (that is before anyone had gone to Hamburg) makes it even more thrilling. At that time there were only 30 rock & roll groups operationally on Merseyside. This is also likely to be the only recordings we have of Rory Storm with his then drummer Ringo Starr.
And guess what! Beatles International got the right to be the official allowed distributor for Europe. Yes you can order your original silver pressed copy of this CD here at Beatles International. (see our 'releases' section).

The new Magical Mystery Tour will be preceded by a TV screening in the UK by the BBC on 2 October, a week before it's release date. Also screened will be a behind-the-scenes Arena documentary.
