    Apparently, a lot of fans were pissed off that Pete got booted from the band. Some fan actually punched George in the face over it. There’s a documentary “Best of the Beatles” that goes into the story from Pete’s view. Very enlightening.

    You can plainly see George's shiner in photos taken at the "Love Me Do" recording session.

    He wasn't punched, he was head-butted! Liverpool was rough town in them days.

    Even early on, Paul knew to look straight into the camera and smile.

    Always reminded me of a young Christopher Walken or Chris Elliott

    The TV appearance this was taken from was even mentioned by Lennon in later years... as being an example of how good they were as a live band

    The audio was available as a bootleg at the time, and apparently he had gotten ahold of a copy

    Yep, I first heard it on a bootleg LP in 1978. It wasn't until 1985 that I first saw the video at the short-lived Beatle City museum in Liverpool.

    It wasn't until recently that we got to see/hear the TWO takes that were shot!

    Yes! One of my favorite early Beatle footage. Too bad George's guitar is barely audible in the mix. But the cool thing is you can hear John's guitar clearly which didn't happen much live. His solo in Long Tall Sally is nasty in a good way.

    Ringo is kicking ass at 10:50.

    Only because Epstein told him to.

    yeah, the double handed snare/cymbal roll...….that's tricky, easy for him being a lefty!
    He's even jamming along to the theme song.

    He knew way before Epstein came along how to connect with an audience! :)

    In that pic, he's giving the eye to John's wife (then girlfriend) Cynthia – and she appears to be reciprocating :D

    That was great....

    I noticed the chords changes to Saw her Standing there in the chorus were different that what has been recorded.

    Ringo is the best!

    I like all those pretty 1960's girls in the audience! I'd sing and play my best for them too...

    If they'd have been playing in England, the audience would all be clapping on the one and three.

    Too bad guitar music was on the way out.

    I always played a C instead of the Am they played in that middle "Woah" part...C sounded better to me.

    I also noticed that George seldom played that solo like the one on the record. There were also a few out take versions I heard of that solo and some were pretty horrid...but they picked the right one for the record. I never worked that solo out note for note but I think I will for the fun of it next time I'm in the man cave;).

    Funny how the audience is mostly 10 year olds.

    Great clip, amazing performance!!
    But for peak form I'll submit this tune. Imagine this is your new original tune at the time and your band lays it down like this. 1964?
