The Silkie Sounds Of Lennon And McCartney
On 9th August 1965, 3 days after releasing You've Got Hide Your Love Away, The Beatles were back in the studio (IBC in London) re-recording it.
The Silkie were a folk group in the 'Peter, Paul And Mary' style, formed at Hull University with a wealth of Beatles connections. They were signed by Brian Epstein after a gig at the Cavern Club and managed by Alastair Taylor. This naturally paved the way for covering The Beatles but their session had the added bonus of being produced by John and featuring Paul on guitar and George on Tambourine. The record went to no.10 in the States.
