Bob Harris and Colin Hall – The Songs The Beatles Gave Away

19th April at 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

BBC’s Bob Harris and author/music journalist Colin Hall’s intimate speaking tour based around their mutual love and appreciation of The Beatles, including a rare archive from Bob Harris’ collection of interviews with Lennon & McCartney.

By 1963 the pair had written so many songs they simply couldn’t all be accommodated on just their own Beatles releases, so it made artistic and economic good sense to be offered to other artists for recording and the Merseybeat boom of 1963 & 1964 gave them a tailor-made outlet in artists such as Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer and Tommy Quickly.

This is the story behind those songs, the hits, the misses and the demos that the group never released: ‘The Songs The Beatles Gave Away’
