This Is Mersey Beat!

Presented for your reading pleasure - a classic article on Mersey Beat from one of the greatest magazines ever, Record Collector. This segment is part of a larger 20 page section on the Mersey Beat phenomenon of the Sixties. Liverpool produced some amazing bands and songwriters, most of whom never reached the level of fame and respect that the Beatles attained. I am also sharing a YouTube posting (by Sids60sSounds) of The Big Three's first single. The Big Three were considered the best live band in Liverpool with a wild, raucous sound pre-dating the power trios of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream!

Enjoy this journey down the Cavern!
