7th January 1971

The three members - Peter McDonald, Sam Whitby, and Torquil Dohrn - of the new rock and roll band Cherry Beat gathered in the studio for their first official recording session. Tellingly the band's lineup was incomplete as they didn't have a drummer yet. But since the band's formation had barely begun, having just the core group members in the studio with no drummer mattered little to the trio. Their future drummer could always add drumming overdubs to the initial recordings once they became part of the group. And the same for the session musicians, not to mention that Torquil was capable of playing multiple instruments of multiple instrument families.

On the 7th January 1971, the three core members gathered together in the Dohrn recording studio that belonged to Torquil's grandfather, and recorded some rock and roll covers from the 1950's and 1960's. This was intended to help the band practice for the recording sessions of their debut album. Of course, they needed a drummer, a producer, and some session musicians first. But this session was just so the band could improve their already near-professional guitar playing.
