One thought on “The Star-Club tapes – Mark Lewisohn

  1. Fantastic – thanks so much for this. One thing I didn’t follow is Lewisohn’s idea that the tapes represent Ringo’s “first take” (meaning, it was the first time he’d played these songs with the Beatles) on some of the songs. Unless I’ve missed something, there’s no suggestion that they hadn’t played all of these songs many times (with Ringo) in the four months leading up to when the sets that were taped. Can you clarify?
