New Release, Haymans Green
The autobiographical CD reflects Petes thoughts and feelings
as he takes us from the time he was a Beatle (which included the
famous Hamburg, Germany tour dates, and the BBC, Polydor, Decca,
and EMI recordings), before mysteriously getting fired, to the anguish
of losing the gig and then finding his own way as The Beatles went
on to superstardom.
The eleven tracks recorded by The Pete Best Band are, in essence,
a musical documentary encapsulating Petes mind-set and reflections
about those now famous days.
CD will be available September 16th on the Casbah Club label, released
through Lightyear Entertainment and distributed by Caroline/EMI.
For more information, the official Pete Best Band website is www.petebest.com.
