The Beatles’ first Abbey Road recording session was booked for 6 June 1962, and the group needed to prepare material.
Having failed the Decca audition they were taking no chances. On this and the following day they rehearsed at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, making sure they were tight enough to convince EMI to give them a full recording contract.
On this day they rehearsed at the Cavern from 3-6.30pm.
