|On January 1st 1962, The Beatles recorded 15 tracks at the Decca studios for their first English record company
audition. In 1976 a series of unofficial singles came out on wonderful coloured vinyl with some very nice picture sleeves.
Above you can see the sleeves of all seven of them, making 14 tracks from the sessions ...
which leaves out one track, "Take Good Care Of My Baby".
Below is one scan showing the vinyl, plus a close-up of the typical label.
Further below are two extra releases in the "Deccagone" series, which are NOT part of the Decca sessions, but are still
very nice parts of the Deccagone set to have !
The first includes :
From Me To You
She Loves You
Till There Was You
Twist And Shout.
... and is a bootleg E.P. of the "Royal Command Performance" of 4th November 1963 which includes John's legendary
"rattle your jewellery" quote.
The second is called, "By Royal Command" ... and has the exact same tracks from the same performance !
It came in a very similar picture sleeve and was on clear vinyl.
Lastly below, is another single that was NOT on Deccagone ... but it came out at the same time, and was in the same style of
pressing, so I have included it here. It was pressed as a special souvenir for those attending the 3rd annual convention of
Beatles fans mystery tour 1976, and came in five different colour vinyls.
So, look out for blue, yellow, green, read and clear vinyl versions.
"How Do You Do It" is on the a-side with "Revolution" on the b-side.
