An audio tour of Liverpool's musical heritage has been made available to download free of charge.
The Sound City tour takes in important sights
The Sound City tour, narrated by Pete Wylie of 1980s band The Mighty Wah!, explores the city's music scene from the 1960s to the present day.
It takes in sights such as the Cavern Club, the Liverpool Wall of Fame, Jacaranda, Cream, the Philharmonic Hall and Sir Paul McCartney's LIPA school.
The tour can be downloaded as an MP3 file from www.liverpool08.com.
A downloadable map accompanies the tour.
The route also passes NEMS Music store, which was once owned by Brian Epstein, and the iconic 70's club Eric's.
Thousands of tourists visit the Cavern Club each year
Pete Wylie said: "I was honoured to be the voice of this tour - Liverpool and music means so much to me.
"I had great fun reading the script. It brought back a lot of memories for me, so I've ad-libbed a bit to give people a real feel for the passion we have for music in this city."
The free guide, produced by the Liverpool Culture Company, is expected to draw in thousands of tourists from around the world.
Councillor Warren Bradley, leader of Liverpool City Council, said: "Music - be it pop, dance or classical - has made Liverpool a household name all over the world.
"This MP3 guide is a fitting tribute to all those who helped put the city on the map - and continue to.
"It's fantastic that we can use the internet to offer visitors and music lovers a stroll through places which hold so many magical memories and tales.
"It gives people a new way of looking at the city and hopefully will attract them to take the tour themselves."
