THE FOURMOST - "Hello Little Girl" / "Just In Case" (Parlophone R 5056) August 1963
"Hello Little Girl" is a jolly little beat number performed by Liverpool group The Fourmost and written by John Lennon when he was a teenager in the late 1950s. The Beatles also recorded "Hello Little Girl" but it remained a demo and was never released by them at the time but it has since surfaced on the "Anthology" set of CDs from the 90s. This single went Top 10 in the charts by the way and was also recorded by Gerry & the Pacemakers.
The B-Side is also good, this time their merseybeat is tinged with latin rhythms. Quite a unique sound going on for 1963. The Fourmost more than likely heard The Everly Brothers performing the song. They cut a version in 1962, check it out on their EP "It's Everly Time"
