Fuego Entertainment Begins Digital Re-Mastering of Lost Beatles Tapes

(Wireless News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
Fuego Entertainment announced that its majority owned joint venture
Echo-Fuego has commenced the digital re-mastering and enhancement
process to improve the quality of the historic Beatles lost tapes in
preparation for its future release.

The process will take a few months. Once finished the recordings will
be part of an historic double CD featuring the 15 original recordings
from 1963 and the 15 digitally enhanced recordings. The title of this
historical collector's item is "Jamming with Beatles and Friends, Star
Club, Hamburg, 1962".

The recording is the first time that Ringo Starr actually played with
the group "live" after replacing Pete Best on the drums. Seven of the
songs on this tape were later studio recorded and released by the group
through E.M.I. but the remaining eight tracks were never released.

The recordings were made in 1962, a short time before their signing
with E.M.I., during the Fab Four's first live appearance together at
the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany playing before a small audience of
about twenty to thirty people. The original tape of this live recording
was "lost" for over 33 years in the record and tape collection of
legendary music producer and promoter Jeffrey Collins.
