Used to like the Litherland I thought it was 'Dead Posh'
One the other hand I went the Star Club Hamburg in 1968 and it was like the 'Wince' 'Wintergardens flee pit

Really enjoying this thread. I remember all of the groups, fantastic music. Strangely I never went to the Litherland Town Hall and I actually only lived minutes away on Church Road. I used to go into Liverpool and see many of these groups on various venues. I also went to the Orrel Park Ballroom, however only went once and a fight broke out...….never went again...…….. I was fortunate to see the Beatles twice at the Empire, could not hear a thing but had a great time :D I remember the Escorts, the Dennisons Earl Prestons Realms, Rory Storm, Clayton Squares and so many more. Some of the very best music was produced in the 60`s, what a fantastic era
