Fuego Entertainment Acquires 15 "Lost", Never Before Released, Recordings by The Beatles

Fuego Entertainment, Inc. (OTCBB: FUGO) today announced it has acquired 15 tracks of previously unreleased music by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, "The Beatles." The recordings were made in 1962, a short time before their signing with E.M.I., during the FAB FOUR'S first live appearance together at the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany playing before a small audience of about twenty to thirty people. The original tape of this live recording was "lost" for over 33 years in the record and tape collection of legendary music producer and promoter Mr. Jeffrey Collins.

The Star Club Hamburg recorded most groups that appeared at their club in the late 50s and early 60s under a performance contract that included payment in full for any live recordings made at their club. Many of these recordings were released by Polydor (West Germany). However this particular tape was sold along with several others to Jeffrey Collins, of the Collins Organization, a booking agency in London, England. The original idea was that the tapes would be used to promote the Star Club as a venue and the groups to other clubs that the Collins Organization used. The tapes were in fact not touched until 1994 when, with the release of the B.B.C. tapes and a renewed interest in The Beatles, Mr. Jeffrey Collins decided to search for the lost tapes.

This 15 track set was recorded at the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany a short while after the Ted Taylor recordings and boast different and perhaps better takes of "A Taste of Honey" and "Hippy Hippy Shake" (using Tony Sheridan as a 5th Beatle). These are the only two songs found on the original Star Club releases with which this recording should not be confused.

This is an historical recording because it was the very first time that Ringo Starr actually played with The Beatles "live" after replacing Pete Best on the drums.

Other tracks make good use of Kingsize Taylor's Band "The Dominoes" who utilize their piano on such Beatles favorites as "Money," "Twist and Shout" and "I Saw Her Standing There" all of which were subsequently used on The Beatles' first studio recordings for E.M.I.

What makes this album truly unique are the eight songs not available on any previously released L.P.s or singles -- which include Paul McCartney singing Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues" and George Harrison vocalizing Maurice Williams' "Do You Believe." One of the most outstanding tracks on this album must be "Ask Me Why" showing just how John Lennon and Paul McCartney became such a winning combination.

The complete list of all the tracks, the complete story of how this "lost" tape from The Beatles came into the possession of Mr. Jeffrey Collins and sound clips from several of the recordings from this album will soon be available on our Fuego Entertainment, Inc. web site at http://www.FuegoEntertainment.net.

"I am delighted to be given the opportunity to work with such professional businessmen within the Fuego Entertainment Organization and I am truly looking forward to running the new joint venture and achieving the goals that we will set for ourselves," said Jeffrey Collins.

"Our previously announced Joint Venture with Mr. Collins's Echo Vista Group, incorporates into our exciting music library an extraordinary, diverse, valuable catalog of music. In some cases, never released recorded music, The Beatles is only one example. I'm extremely excited about this acquisition and the future release of this historical Beatles album. They are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed music groups in the history of popular music," stated Hugo Cancio, President & CEO of Fuego Entertainment.

This one of a kind historical album will be released under the Echo-Fuego joint venture, a majority control music division of Fuego Entertainment. A release date will be announced in the near future.

Although historically very important, a few facts just don't add up here. For example, The first time The Beatles played The Star Club with Ringo was Nov 1962, after their signing with EMI and not before as stated.

If these tapes were made before, then they would be from the first appearance in April 1962 with Pete Best on drums.

Also the Ted Taylor tapes were made during The Beatles last engagement in December 1962, therefore how could these have been made afterwards.

I am always weary of such stories as these which usually end up to be nothing new and just the same old thing as before but repackaged. There is just no mention of any other Hamburg recordings ever having been made in any books I've read and if someone had known I'm sure just one book would have pointed this out.

I'm afraid I'll remain scepticle until I actually hear these recordings, until then......

Ringo filled in once in a while which is how he got so friendly with The Beatles. Maybe this is one of those gigs he sat in for Pete ?

Could well be, but according to Mark Lewisohn's "Beatles Live" book, The Beatles never performed "Lovesick Blues" or "Do You Believe" during 1962 or any other year for that matter. I haven't actually heard any clips yet but I suspect this isn't even The Beatles at all.

I've yet to this date know of a single person that heard of this recording much less heard it's content. When there are some samples I guess we'll know then. One thing I have learned over the years about Beatle Collecting is, There are more rumors about existing recordings than the actual recordings themselves. Lots of Beatle impersonators out there trying to take advantage of legit collectors but If you have been in the mix awhile it's easier to pin out a fake sound recording than a reprint of a record label or jacket. Somehow I believe this will never materialize into anything more than what it is right now. Just rumor..

Dear Paul--

At this point you have no choice- you simply MUST record a song titled God Damn Rock n Roll. You MUST.

Haven't checked this link out yet but there was a "Lost" Beatles Tapes Interview aired on NBC Today Show on February 2, 2008.
You can view the interview by clicking on the following link. Several clips from the tapes were aired during the interview.
