On 1 January 1962, before they reached international stardom, the Beatles auditioned for Decca Records at Decca Studios in West Hampstead, north London. In what is considered one of the biggest mistakes in music industry history, Decca rejected the band, selecting instead Brian Poole and the Tremeloes. After being available only on "bootleg" recordings, some of the songs recorded for the audition were officially released on the Beatles rarities compilation Anthology 1 in 1995.
