Tapes by Ringo Starr's first band found

BBC News - Tapes by Ringo Starr's first band found: Recordings by Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, Ringo Starr's first band and one of the most popular groups of the early Merseybeat era, have been unearthed after more than 50 years. 

The band were at the forefront of the Liverpool scene but never made it big. 

The tapes were recorded in March 1960, two years before Starr was poached by Brian Epstein to join The Beatles. 

Found in Storm's sister's cellar, the tapes will form the group's first and only album release later this month.
