Because of this thread I listened to the album last night for the first time in probably ten years last night. It's not an easy listen but there's some great performances there.

  

Performances are fantastic audio quality is abysmal

  '

'Be Bop A Lula'? I think that was the Club's owner or bar man or something, Horst somebody? Apparently it was his favourite song, so liked to sing it and always got a raucous response from the audience. The details should be online somewhere and if I find them again, I'll add them to this post. 

I'm sure others here know anyway and may have posted about it before?

It was Horst Fascher's brother, Fred, a waiter at the club, who performed the vocals on Be-Bop-a-Lula; bouncer Horst took over the mike for Hallelujah, I Love Her So.

Though track 1, "Intro", could refer to the spoken introduction, or maybe the short warm-up of Junior Walker's (I'm a) Road Runner. Without more precise details it's difficult to know as the Star Club recordings have appeared in various different configurations over the years making.

Thanks @Ron Nasty 

I bought the double live Star Club album back in the late 70s, maybe very early 80s? I think The Beatles tried to stop it being released due to the sound quality, which was pretty poor. The new cleaned up version is really good though!

I appear to have forgotten the end half of the second sentence.

You can now move along. Nothing to see here.

I was referring to that track ENTITLED Intro.

when I looked it up on youtube, it showed some pretty interesting lyrics (Wilson, Wilson,/Castle)

unfortunately, I could not hear it, as instead, the lyrics were linked to the Beatles: Rockband intro.

I am not right, I am right.
