The only time Brian produced a record ~ and SANG on it, too!
(Even though you can't hear him ~or can you?~ read track 4's info...)
Click to hear "America" (YouTube audio)
October 20, 1964 ~ Brian produces his first and only record, for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, at IBC Studios, London. Both Brian and Ringo sing background harmonies!
Did Brian Epstein really sing backup on America by Rory Storm, the below-referenced record?
Well, before the site was taken down for so-called "copyright infringement," the claim was made [ HERE ], along with a boot download of the entire LP.
Apparently this was Brian's only attempt at producing a record. And singing on one!
Details on what happened that same busy, busy day
## OCT 20 1964 - Before his clients, The Beatles, give two performances at the Caird Hall, Dundee, England, their manager, Brian Epstein, produces his first recording session.
IBC Studios, London
The session, held at IBC Studios, London, England, is for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, whose drummer had been Ringo Starr before he joined The Beatles (Ringo is at this session but doesn't play on it). Rory (aka Alan Caldwell)'s sister Iris had been George Harrison's first girlfriend when they were 14. The group recorded the tracks "America" from the U.S. musical "West Side Story" (which would be the A-Side of the group's only released single), a cover of The Everly Brothers' "Since You Broke My Heart" (which would be the single's flip side), as well as "Ubangi Stomp" and "I'll Be There".
