The Rocking City - UK Edition
The Rocking City - UK Edition
The Rocking City by Sam Leach, the explosive birth of the Beatles. If you ever WONDERED about the origins of Merseybeat and just how the BEATLES exploded onto the LIVERPOOL scene before Brian Epstein cleaned them up to CONQUER the world, then THE ROCKING CITY has the answers for you !

Sam Leach TELLS it like it really was and succeeds in encapsulating all the ENERGY, humour, GENEROSITY and unconventional ways which are so CHARACTERISTIC of Liverpool.

He not only puts his finger on the exact moment when MERSEYBEAT was born, he lived and BREATHED it as one of its leading promoters.

Sam's BARN-STORMING bills not only featured the Beatles, whose sheer POWER and ENERGY in their early days ROCKED the city to its foundations, but also groups such as Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Searchers, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes and Kingsize Taylor and the Dominoes.

And Sam was almost certainly directly RESPONSIBLE for Brian Epstein's fateful visit to the CAVERN one Friday lunchtime to watch a performance by the group he was to make the BIGGEST ever.

JOHN LENNON once said "Sam Leach was the pulse of Merseybeat. What he did the rest copied"

PAUL McCARTNEY on BBC Radio Merseyside in 1984 called those early days . "The Sam Leach Era"

THE ROCKING CITY is definitely NOT 'just another Beatles book' - Were the Beatles just another pop group ? Many who thought and even said as much at the time could not have been proved more wrong.

To all those not fortunate enough to have been born in Liverpool - THE ROCKING CITY- Read and weep !
