Puttin' on the Style
YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS ONE!!! This clip was recorded at the Woolton Village Fete in 1957 on THE EXACT DAY JOHN FIRST MET PAUL! The entire tape was recently sold at auction. The sound quality isn't wonderful, but it's of extreme historical importance. This is also the earliest known recording of John Lennon.
