CB 2a - Early Catacombs Recordings

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

These songs were recorded live at the Catacombs Coffee Bar in Manchester, and the tapes leant to me by Alan Taylor.  This recording was probably made by Edwin Brain, a helper at the Catacombs.  Although the original tape is probably from multiple sessions at the Catacombs (and for use as background music - most songs are not linked by introductions), it would appear, from the songs included, that they are from early in 1965.  The tape recorder speed may have been a little fast as these songs are a little on the slow (and low) side.

Songs in green itlaics were NOT written by the group - which at this stage means most of them.  An MP3 download is available for each song. The words of all the songs on this CD are available on this web site, and there is also a page of the chords used.
