THE BEATLES – with Tony Sheridan. Beatles Bop – Hamburg Days
“Then one evening, somebody said to us: Bert Kaempfert’s here in
the ‘Top Ten’.
Who on earth is that? – You don’t know
Bert Kaempfert? Wonderland By Night.
He’s a record producer and on the
lookout for new talent. – Oh, damn, we’d better
give it all we’ve
got” (Paul Mc Cartney)
This high-quality box in LP format not only includes a CD with 38 versions
from the “Polydor Years”. On the inspiration of the Hamburg journalist
and novelist Bernd Matheja and in cooperation with the Swedish Beatles specialist
Hans Olof Gottfridsson, a very comprehensive and well-compiled book with numerous
photos and illustrations was also produced. It documents how Bert Kaempfert
discovered the Beatles in Hamburg at that time and recorded the first records
with them. So it is not only a “must” for Beatles fans (# BCD 16447
