I think you're right MMM. We know they had the song from Mike McCartney's Forthlin Road photos, but I don't think it was a regular part of their live set in June 1962 (I may be wrong). The only setlist I'm aware of from that era was from a Manchester show in February 1962, and they were still mostly doing cover versions: The Hippy Hippy Shake, Sweet Little Sixteen, The Sheik Of Araby, September In The Rain, Dizzy Miss Lizzy, Take Good Care Of My Baby, Till There Was You, Memphis, Tennessee, What A Crazy World We Live In, Like Dreamers Do, Money (That's What I Want), Young Blood, The Honeymoon Song, Hello Little Girl, So How Come (No One Loves Me), Ooh! My Soul, To Know Her Is To Love Her, Roll Over Beethoven, The Love Of The Loved, Dance/Twist In The Streets, Dream, and Searchin'.
Perhaps when it looked more likely that they were going to get a recording contract, they had a proper think about what sort of band they wanted to be, decided to improve the songwriting and brush up the existing numbers, and by the end of the year they were playing I Saw Her Standing There in Hamburg (it's on the Star-Club album).

Did anyone order the 50th anniversary rerereleased Love Me Do single (release date scheduled for today), just got word that its been "delayed" yet amazon say its in stock. Have sent an email to thebeatles store to find out if delayed means shelved or at a later date but was wondering if anyone knew anything.
