Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Decca tape from 1983

You may have read a news item regarding a Beatles Decca audition tape which is up for sale at the Fame Bureau auction in London's Mayfair on November 27. The main stream media has picked up on this (as examplified here by The Telegraph). You may have noticed that only ten of the 15 tracks from the original Decca audition are listed on the tape. That's probably because this is just the master tape for the 1983 albums from Backstage Records.
As with all publicly circulating versions of the Decca audition recordings, these are also derived from the old Joe Pope Deccagone singles of the seventies, or from the same tape.

There's a clip of Pete Best on the Letterman show promoting the Decca LP, presumably the Backstage release.
