The Beatles: Life and Career
Many names come to mind when you think of rock music in the 60’s, but there’s always one group in that list that have made as big of an impact as The Beatles.

The Beatles made their first studio work for singer Tony Sheridan's recordings for the German Polydor label, however, in the credits the band's name was changed to, The Beat Brothers.
