did you know?

A manager shopped his rock group's demo tape to 3 record labels & all turned it down. At the 4th, the producer listens to the demo, but isn't impressed by the collection of oldies & uninspired originals. But, the unusual vocal arrangements & the band's potential convinced him to invite the group for a recording test. Although he thought the drummer needed replacing & the songs needed work, George Martin liked the group's enthusiasm. He signed them to a 5 year contract within a month of the audition. Martin's suggested changes to John Lennon's arrangement of "Please Please Me" made it an early hit. The band he saved from obscurity: The Beatles & that was the beginning of a 7 year collaboration.
