Beatles/Orbison tour recording
Someone claims to have made an audio recording of songs from the Roy Orbison and Beatles concerts that took place in Walthamstow on May 24th, 1963. And he still has the tape.
He posted an email to a mailing list for Beatles collectors, asking for advice on how to get a good price for the tape.
This is the first time we've heard of anyone having a recorded portion of a concert from the Beatles/Roy Orbison tour, and people are sceptic about the authenticity of the samples he provided.
The would-be-seller says it's a 15 minute 3" reel-to-reel tape, containing:
Roy Orbison - "Runnin' Scared", "In Dreams".
The Beatles - "Some Other Guy", "Thank You Girl", "Please Please Me", "I Saw Her Standing There", "From Me To You".
"Thank You Girl" was a rare song to have heard in concert, because it was only featured a few times.
