"The original tape had been crudely recorded on a Grundig home tape recorder, by Ted "Kingsize" Taylor, and was considered as a possible live album "cash-in" release after Beatlemania had begun. The sound quality was so poor, however, that the idea was abandoned, and the tape languished in a Liverpool music office for over a decade. Original Beatles manager Allan Williams stated in his memoirs, The Man Who Gave The Beatles Away, that in the late 1970s he was salvaging materials from condemned buildings due to be torn down; learning of the recording, and with the office they were stored in now abandoned, he obtained permission to enter the building and recover the tape. Lingasong Records bought the rights to the tape, and invested $125,000 in a thorough remix of the recordings." - Wikipedia. These 2 LP's are "High Quality Pressings Made In Germany" in 1977.
