Tapes of Ringo Starr's first band found

Recordings by Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, which was Ringo Starr's first band and one of the most popular groups of the early Merseybeat era, have been unearthed after more than 50 years. The band were at the forefront of the Liverpool scene but never made it big. The tapes were recorded in March 1960, two years before Starr was poached by Brian Epstein to join The Beatles
