Teenager's Turn - Here We Go !!

The first BBC live appearance for the Beatles (with Pete Best) was on March 07 1962 recorded at the Playhouse Theatre in Manchester, England.
The Beatles taped three songs for the broadcast (which was conducted the next day). The three songs were all covers: "Dream Baby" by Roy Orbison sung on this broadcast by Paul, "Memphis, Tennesee" by Chuck Berry sung by John and "Please Mr. Postman" by the Marvelettes also sung by John.
This particular broadcast can be heard on the "Wonderful Picture of You" bootleg LP or on the first CD in the Great Dane CD Box set "The Beatles; The Complete BBC Sessions".


  1. I'm surprised y'all missed one of the rarest sales of a Beatles box in existence.

    I was doing a search for Beatles cassettes, and I landed here..
    You might want to check that out.. since there's only 10 known to exist, i doubt I'll ever get to bid on another. anyways $1377 for 3 cassettes in a box was a little steep for me ;-)

    Like this blog!~ Doc

  2. Hi Doc:
    Very rare set indeed ! Looking at the latest Perry Cox/Frank Daniels 6th edition of the price guide and it states this first US Beatles box set; hinged LP size containing 3 tapes: "Meet", "Yesterday...and Today" and "MMT". Only 12 copies ever made !! A mint set is listed at $2,000 bucks. Issued September 1969. Nice work !! Maybe next time.
