14th July 1961 – Seeing The Beatles at The Cavern
Debbie sees The Beatles at The Cavern
The Beatles had just returned from their second trip to Hamburg and were guests of The Swinging Blue Genes at the Cavern for their welcome home appearance. They were already by far the best group in Liverpool. Everything about them was exciting and intoxicating. They seemed to be infused with even more vigour and passion than before. The transformation was unbelievable, with their gyrating hips, humorous banter on stage and sexy outfits- clad in tight black leather with Cuban heeled boots.
Their repertoire was now wide-ranging making them stand out from other bands. The Beatles sound was unique and addictive their energy palpable. Liverpool had never seen or heard anything quite like them before. We couldn’t get enough of them.
