The best sounding Decca audition I have heard :-)

Definitive. Loud bass and clearer than the previous "New Year's Day" release. Each track sounds full, but not artificially so. The guitar is particularly improved from previous releases, as shown in songs like To Know Her Is to Love Her, Three Cool Cats, and The Sheik of Araby. The only song not sourced from the "Deccagone singles" is Take Good Care of My Baby, and that still sounds better than ever.

The artwork is also great, with well-chosen images. Coolest is definitely the new thermal printing system, with the closed Apple logo looking almost holographic on the disc.

HIGHLY recommended.

Some stuff is MUCH better than previous releases! "To Know her Is To Love Her" is a great example. Finally no dropouts and the drums are clearer. It's worth getting just for that song, but, "Love of the Loved", "September In The Rain", "Sheik Of Araby", and "Searchin" all also sound significantly better.

BEST DEFINITIVE DECCA AUDITION NEVER BEFORE LISTEN THE SOUND
IS INCREDIBLE
Review by: fillapillowgOn 03 Jun 2008 at 19:28 CET
I'm pretty sure this is an exact duplicate of the SILVER BEATLES disc on the Orange label. I hear no differences nor a sound improvement, since the Orange cd was fantastic to begin with. Better graphics on the Ebbetts one, that all.

To fillapillowg:

Doc used the Deccagone 45s to assemble this collection. The only track that was never pressed on Deccagone 45 was the song "Take Good Care Of My Baby" and Doc took that one from a high quality source. Here's a description from his annoucement:

"This release will not count as an upgrade to the “New Year’s Day” CD in this catalogue, although on the surface, it probably should. As per my last mass-mailer, this will be one of those titles that should, by all reasonable interpretations of the Ebbetts project’s rules and regulations, count as an upgrade … but it isn’t. I do apologize for that, but as I explained at the time, I do need to exercise SOME financial smarts here. (These free upgrades are a touch taxing). Therefore, this NEW interpretation of the Beatles’ audition for Decca Records on January 1, 1962 is here!



What makes this so different from the original “New Year’s Day” compilation? Well, 14 out of the 15 songs on this CD are sourced directly from the highly touted Deccagone 45 singles - widely considered to be not only the best sounding versions of these songs, but the most complete. I was fortunate enough to secure the complete seven record set of these colored-vinyl singles last year, in marvelous condition. Indeed, they sound better than any other versions of the songs I have ever heard – better even than Anthology. For those Beatle folks deeply into minutae, these recordings are “complete” – meaning they have the fractions of seconds of extra “chatter” and studio noise “absent” from most other versions.



While the inside artwork is essentially the same as the “New Year’s Day” compilation, I have created brand new front artwork for this title. It is on the “Apple” label.



By the way, the 15th song not included in the Deccagone collection – “Take Good Care Of My baby” - was sourced from a bootleg vinyl source I have that has the best and closest sound to the other 14."

Dick Rowe was being polite to Epstein when he said that "guitar groups are on their way out".
What he meant to say was: "That band of yours is really a joke. What a waste of valuable studio time".

All kidding aside, this collection gives an idea what a huge leap the Beatles have taken in 1962.
It shows how awful they were at the beginning of the year.
The Shadows & Fabian seem to be the groups biggest influences at this point.
There is really nothing here that hints to the enourmous potential that the group had.

But fidelitywise, this is a stunner.
This is really a lot better than those first EMI recordings. A true labor of love.

The disc print is wrong, it says "Like Dreamers So". Where can I find a right scan of it...
Anyway it is a shocking issue.

Stoning noise, the bass is brilliant, I didn't know that a mono mix would sound so marvelous... 20!

The legendary Decca Audition tapes in superb quality.

Sound is excellent, probably the best yet for these historic tracks.

This rates on par with Elvis at Sun Records in 1954-1955, and the Rolling Stones March-1963 IBC Studio demo's.

If for nothing else, the historic significance is tremendous.

As noted by other reviewers, they had jumped light-years ahead of everyone during the year previous.

The absolute birth of Beatlemania and a benchmark in the early history of Rock and Roll.

The 1960's and Rock and Roll would never be the same after this.

In less than a year, Pete Best would be out, Ringo would be in, and they would be elevated to God-like status....and rightly so.

A little more than a year after these recordings were made, they would headline the Ed Sullivan Show and become one of the defining moments in television and Rock and Roll history.

The significance of these recordings cannot be over stated.

Amazing and astounding considering they were only 20-22 years of age at this point.

Sound fidelity is superb, obviously mastered from the original session master tapes.

Highly recommended.....
