Have you seen that the Beatles’ demo tape they produced for Decca has sold for £35,000 ($56,394)?
As missed opportunities go it was a pretty sizable one – although it did enable us to enjoy the “delights” of Brian Poole and the Tremeloes – who Decca chose instead on that day in 1962.
Decca did learn its lesson, however, managing to see the potential of a young group known as the Rolling Stones, who they signed later the same year.
And Brian Poole and his pals? You can pick up an autograph on eBay for a tenner.
