"That'll Be The Day"/ "In Spite Of All The Danger"

The first "professional" recordings by the upcoming young lads from the 'Pool. Various members of the "Quarrymen" including John, Paul and George along with John Lowe on piano and Colin Hanton on drums. The year was 1958. The exact date is unknown to me.
The "studio" was owned by a certain Mr. Percy Phillips who would (for a fee) record the lads direct onto a 10 inch 78 rpm shellac disc.
The two songs chosen for the occasion consisted of a Buddy Holly cover and an original. The Buddy Holly cover was "That'll Be The Day" sung by John. The other side of the 78 consisted of the original McCartney/Harrison composition "In Spite Of All The Danger" which - oddly enough - also sounds like John.
Once the recording was completed, the 78 was passed around from band member to band member and finally rested in John Lowe's dresser drawer for 23 years until mid 1981. The disc was to be auctioned off but instead was bought by Paul McCartney who currently owns the original disc.
Both songs are available with a lot of noise reduction on the "Anthology 1" 3 LP/2CD set.


  1. In the 1990s John Lowe sold framed reproductions of the record. They look more than nice!
