Songs That Influenced The Early Beatles
« on: July 16, 2017, 02:31:49 AM »

Ive been interested in listening to songs they did by their original artists, some really good songs, that the boys enjoyed playing and singing.
Joe Brown & The Bruvvers had chart success before The Beatles and I think "A Picture Of You" was their only No 1
They obviously liked it and George sang it well.

This is a great topic, Kev! It's also an interest of mine, one that got ignited the first time I listened to Live at the BBC. What a joy it's been to discover a previously unknown body of work.

Famous Yodeller Frank Ifield had a huge British hit with his song "I Remember You" in 1962 .The Beatles actually toured with him, Paul also sang it, a very catchy song.

I love this one by Arthur Alexander. It's probably my favorite.

I really wish The Beatles had done a proper recording of this.

I'm not sure why Ringo's picture was put in there. Oh well!

This was a B side that Paul discovered by The Lafayettes, but I cant find a Beatle recording of it
