Vintage Rock Issue 49 (February/March 2021) The Beatles
In the latest issue of Vintage Rock we celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Beatles’ debut at The Cavern Club in Liverpool and hear from those who were in the thick of the action about the raucous rock’n’roll shows that catapulted the band to global fame.
Also, as we mark 60 years since The Supremes signed with Motown, we relive the group’s peak years with memories from Mary Wilson. We catch up with members of The Ventures to hear about their remarkable career as the biggest-selling instrumental band of all time, trace the rockin’ roots of Bond score composer John Barry and delve into the heart-rending story behind the life of Del Shannon.
Elsewhere, we meet rising star Dylan Kirk, the award-winning Tammi Savoy and the good folks behind the UK’s biggest rockabilly label, Foot Tapping Records. Sam Cooke’s Hit Kit is this issue’s Classic Album. We also take a step into the past via Moonshine Records Studio in Germany and hear how one man has recreated Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion in small-town Denmark.
Our packed reviews section includes Crazy Cavan, John Mayall, The Sharks, Elvis and Joe Brown.
