Beatles Audition Tape up For Auction
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.23.2012



According to The Telegraph, a Beatles' demo tape, famously rejected by Decca Records in 1962, is up for auction. Ted Owen, of auctioneers the Fame Bureau has the following to say about the quality of the tape…

"It is totally unique and the sound quality is crystal clear. They are copying the American style, the style of artists like Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry. Those were the days of Rock and Roll and everybody who was trying to make a name for themselves were trying to replicate that style."

The band was refused a contract by the Decca label when executive Dick Rowe decided that guitar music was "on the way out". He told the band they had "no future in show business". Months later they signed with EMI, and the rest was history.

The tape was actually sold back in 2002 to a buyer of music memorabilia for Hard Rock Cafe, who has now put the tape up for auction with a pre-sale estimate of $47,798. Some of the tracks included on the tape are…

* 'Money (That's What I Want)'
* 'Like Dreamers Do'
* 'Take Good Care of My Baby'
* 'Three Cool Cats'
* 'Love of the Loved'
* 'Memphis'
* 'Crying Waiting Hoping'
