Maggie May was a musical by Lionel Bart & Alun Owen (who also wrote the screenplay to A Hard Day's Night) "It’s a completely fictitious story all about contemporary Liverpool and a lot of the music has been based on old Liverpool and Irish folk songs. There is a beat club scene in the show, with a group who perform two beat numbers – they are going to augment the orchestra" - Alun Owen*. The Nocturns were the resident group at The Blue Angel in Liverpool and were hired to appear in the show. This is their only release and the tracks do not feature on the cast album of the show which previewed at the Palace Theatre, Manchester and opened in the West End at the Adelphi Theatre on 22nd September 1964. *http://www.sixtiescity.com/Mbeat/mbfilms75.htm

Maggie May" (or "Maggie Mae") (Roud 1757) is a traditional Liverpool folk song about a prostitute who robbed a "homeward bounder": a sailor coming home from a round trip. John Manifold, in his Penguin Australian Song Book, described it as "A foc'sle song of Liverpool origin apparently, but immensely popular among seamen all over the world". It became widely circulated in a skiffle version from the late 1950s.

The name "Maggie May" does not occur in the song; Rod borrowed the title from "Maggie Mae," a Liverpool folk song about a Lime Street prostitute which the Beatles included on their Let It Be album. Stewart liked the play on words the title created, sometimes introducing the song by saying, "This is 'Maggie May' - sometimes she did, sometimes she didn't. In his memoir Rod: The Autobiography, Stewart provided details of the experience that led to this song. Wrote Stewart: "At 16, I went to the Beaulieu Jazz Festival in the New Forest.

Maggie May is a 1964 musical conceived by Lionel Bart, who was familiar with the legendary tale and folk song about the title character; The story of an ex-sailor, a prostitute and a wildcat strike. Bart, as usual, has brilliantly written both music and lyrics. As with his former shows, Fings Aint Wot They Used T'be, Lock Up Your Daughters, Oliver! and Blitz!, we are charmed by the strong British characters.
