Gary Barlow’s pre-Take That tapes up for auction

Friday October 4, 2013

Several cassettes made by a 16-year-old Gary Barlow have come to light. The nine cassettes feature many unheard songs written and recorded by the Mancunian.

The tapes introduce unknown songs titled: My Kind of Girl, Suddenly and Your Power to Me and also include well-known Take That hits: A Million Love Songs, Nobody Else, Another Track in my Heart and You are the One.

For the past 20 years the cassettes have been owned by a private collector, who has now decided to put them up for sale at auction. The items are expected to reach £2,000 in the sale at Bellmans Auctioneers in Billingshurst, West Sussex.

Simon Garner, auctioneer at Bellmans said: "Take That are huge so I think there is definitely a collector or someone out there who would be interested in buying these cassettes."
