CB 2a -
Early Catacombs Recordings
coloured backround to the table below indicates the date of the line-up of the
group for the particular recording.
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.
