Ça a débuté comme ça #29

Summertime was the first occasion on which John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr recorded music together. They were the backing group for Lu Walters, whose real name was Walter Eymond although everyone knew him as Wally. Walters was the bassist in Rory Storm's band The Hurricanes, which also featured Starr on drums.
Beatles drummer Pete Best wasn't there, so Eymond's bandmate Ringo Starr played. They also recorded "September Song" and "Fever."
The recording was made October 15, 1960, in the small Akustik studio by the railway station at Kirchenallee 57, Hamburg - Germany, where members of the public were able to record messages for family and friends and have them pressed to 78rpm acetate discs. Nine copies of Summertime were pressed onto acetate disc, though none are known to have survived. (
