Without music, life woud be a mistake (Friedrich Nietzsche)

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree

Searchers - Sweets For My Sweat - The Searchers At Starclub Hamburg (1963)
The Searchers are a British rock band who emerged as part of the 1960s merseybeat scene along with The Beatles, The Swinging Blues Jeans and Gerry and the Pacemakers.

The band´s hits included a remake of The Drifter´ 1961 hit "Sweets For My Sweet", remakes of Jackie DeShannon´s "Needley And Pins" and "When You Walk In The Room", "Sugar And Spice", "Don´t Throw Your Love Away" and a remake of The Clovers´ "Love Potion No. 9". They were the second group after the Beatles to have a hit in America when "Needles And Pins" chartet during the first week of March 1964.

Like many similar acts they would do as many as three shows at different venues in one night. They negotiated a contract with the Star Club in the St. Pauli distric Hamburg for 128 days, with three one-hour performances a night, starting in July 1962.

Of all the British bands that recorded at the Star Club in 1962/63, the Searchers gave the best performance -- polished, exciting, and utterly professional, lacking the finely honed 12-string guitar sound that their subsequent hits would display but still a fine testament to their early work and history. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
