The Birth of The Beatles

The Percy Phillips Studio marks The Birth of The Beatles

Throughout the 1950s and 60s, hundreds of Merseyside singers and groups visited the studio and made recordings, including Billy Fury; Ken Dodd; The Quarrymen; The Swinging Blue Jeans; Johnny Guitar and Pete Goodall.

Many of Liverpool’s other famous sons such as Alan Williams, Bob Wooler and Brian Epstein would visit the studio too. In particular, Brian Epstein, who also had a record shop in Liverpool, would ask Percy to record radio appearances by his new group, ‘The Beatles’ and transfer them to disc for him to listen to later in his office or at home.
Little did he know it at the time but Percy Phillips was recording the development of Liverpool’s incredible musical legacy to the World.
