CB 0 - Early Get-together Recordings (secular)

The coloured backround to the table below indicates the date of the line-up of the group for the particular recording.
1963 1966 1968 1968 1975

The songs on this CD were recorded on a home tape recorder (Grundig TK20) probably in and around 1962, some time after St Leonard's youth holiday to Scotland (summer 1962).  This is the earliest recording of the crossBeaTs.  It was around the time when we were experimenting with 'current' secular songs and playing what Christian songs were around - for pleasure (our own, nobody else's!).  Tracks 6-9 of this CD were recorded at St Leonard's church hall, when we were asked to "do a turn" at the Harvest Festival Social (1962).

Clearly none of these songs were written by the group.
