Setlist 1960

This list of songs was on display at the recent Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans. It's in Stu Sutcliffe's handwriting, and was compiled by Stu shortly after he joined The Beatles in early 1960 as their bass player. It is part of Jeff Augsburger's collection, and a great document showing which songs the band used to play back then.
