"Saturday Club" anniversary show

On September 07 1963, The Beatles recorded a live performance of various songs for the fifth anniversary of the BBC radio show "Saturday Club". The recording took place at the Playhouse Theater in London. The show would be transmitted almost a month later on October 5. The host for this show was Brian Matthew.
The songs performed on the show are as follows: the first song is the original first track from the first LP: "I Saw Her Standing There" with Paul on vocal. This is followed by a cover of "Memphis, Tennessee" sung by John. After this tune, The Beatles attempt to sing and play "Happy Birthday" in a rockabilly style. Quite good, actually. Next up is the current single starting with the B-side "I'll Get You" followed by the A-side of the single "She Loves You". The line up of songs ends with a cover of Little Richard's "Lucille" sung by Paul McCartney.
All of this can be found on the vinyl bootleg "The Beatles At the Beeb, Volume Seven" as well as on the Great Dane box set: "The Complete BBC sessions - disc 5". The last song ("Lucille") has been commercially released by Apple on the 2-LP/2-CD set "Live At the BBC".
