1) Ain't She Sweet History

Another of the Hamburg recordings of 1961, but this time there was no input from Tony Sheridan. This one is all Beatles! Ain't She Sweet was probably recorded on June 24, 1961 at Studio Rahlstedt, in Hamburg. This was the second part of the Tony Sheridan / Beatles recording sessions for Polydor (Deutsche Grammophon). Pete Best plays the drums on this track. This Beatles' version was probably inspired by Gene Vincent's 1956 release.
