I wondered about the Best guy and why he was replaced...May well have been a complete misunderstanding...Don't think he'd have been married for 50 years to the 
same lady had he stayed in the group.

The Norman Smith mentioned below also did a lot of work with Pink Floyd and The Pretty Things.  He was also known as "Hurricane Smith" and had a minor (if not bizarre) hit record in the early '70s.

It's the exposure...That's the important thing.{#Wink}

Soon after the recording contract was signed, the Beatles performed a "commercial test", which is for contracted artists (not an "artists test", which is an audition) on 6 June 1962 in studio two at the Abbey Road studios.<60> Assistant producer Ron Richards and his engineer Norman Smith recorded four songs: "Bésame Mucho", "P.S. I Love You", "Ask Me Why" and "Love Me Do".<61> The last three songs were the Beatles' own compositions, which was very unusual for bands new to recording. Martin was in the building but not in the studio. Martin was called into the studio by Norman Smith when he heard the band play "Love Me Do".<62> At the end of the session Martin asked the individual Beatles if there was anything they personally did not like, to which George Harrison replied, "Well, there's your tie, for a start." That was the turning point, according to Smith, as John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Best joined in with jokes and comic wordplay.

"We gave them a long lecture about their equipment and what would have to be done about it if they were to become recording artists. They didn't say a word back, not a word, they didn't even nod their heads in agreement. When he finished, George said 'Look, I've laid into you for quite a time, you haven't responded. Is there anything you don't like?' I remember they all looked at each other for a long while, shuffling their feet, then George Harrison took a long look at George and said 'Yeah, I don't like your tie!' That cracked the ice for us and for the next 15-20 minutes they were pure entertainment. When they left to go home George and I just sat there saying 'Phew! What do you think of that lot then?' I had tears running down my face."
- Norman Smith<63>

Many historians over the years had written that the first recording session on 6 June 1962 was an "artists test", an audition. Research by the author Mark Lewisohn proved that the recording contract was signed previous to the 6 June 1962 recording session, by uncovering EMI's "red form", proving that the first session was not an "artists test" which is an audition.<64>

"Now, there was quite a bit of controversy that came about after that, as to whether they were actually signed before the artist test. A lot of it that came out did make sense as to why, in my view, George Martin turned up himself for an artist test, when no other producer ever did that. As I said, it was always their assistants. For the artist test, it was George Martin himself. And there was no question of them being signed at that time. But, later I began to wonder, 'Were they already signed? Is this why George Martin himself turned up? Was it because this was the first time that he'd seen them? Was there something more attached to the whole thing?"
- Norman Smith<65>

The Beatles were not new to studio recording with Best's drumming found to be acceptable by Polydor in Hamburg. However, Martin was alerted by Richards of the acceptability of Best's drumming for British studio work. Martin wanted to substitute Best with an experienced studio session drummer for the recordings. This was not unusual being common practice at the time in British recording studios.<68> When Lennon, McCartney and Harrison learned that Martin and the engineers preferred replacing Best with a session drummer for their upcoming recording session on 4 September 1962, they considered using it as a pretext to permanently sack Best from the group. Eventually, after a very long delay, they asked Epstein to dismiss Best from the band.<69> Epstein agonised over the decision. As he wrote in his autobiography, A Cellarful of Noise, he "wasn't sure" about Martin's assessment of Best's drumming and "was not anxious to change the membership of the Beatles at a time when they were developing as personalities … I asked the Beatles to leave the group as it was".<70> Epstein also asked Liverpool DJ Bob Wooler, who knew the Beatles intimately, for advice to which Wooler replied that it was not a good idea as Best was very popular with the fans.<71> Ultimately, Epstein decided that "If the group was to remain happy, Pete Best must go".<70> Epstein summoned Best to his office and dismissed him on Thursday 16 August 1962, ten weeks and one day after the first recording session. Epstein asked Best to continue to play with the band until Ringo joined on Saturday 18 August 1962.<13><41> Best played his last two gigs with the Beatles on 15 August 1962 at the Cavern Club, Liverpool. He was due to play his last show on 16 August 1962 at the Riverpark Ballroom, Chester; however, Best never turned up and Johnny Hutchinson of the Big Three was rushed in to drum on this occasion.<29> Best had been with the group for two years and four days.

Here's the Spotify link to the Box Set. Got it on random play.

Strong recommendation for the Mark Lewishon book "Tune In." It makes all these tune sound so different, in a good way.
