Liverpool a Go-Go 1965

49 mins United Kingdom Director. Philip Burton

Dig the sights and sounds of Liverpool at the time of the Beat Boom in this marvellous film. Legendary Cavern Club DJ Bob Wooler takes you on a musical mystery tour inside the famous club, down to the beach and around the city streets on an open-topped bus - with great performances from loads of local acts including the Fourmost, The Mersey Monsters, The Clayton Squares, The Hideaways and the terrific Tiffany.

Legend has it that The Hideaways played the Cavern Club more times than The Beatles - and that Ringo Starr played washboard for an early incarnation of the group that became The Clayton Squares.
