The Beatles : It Was 50 Years Ago Today by Terry Burrows (2013, Hardcover / Mixed Media)
We love them, do! It was 50 years ago today that the Fab Four had their first chart-topping hit with “Please, Please Me.” Beatlemania had begun—and this treasure-packed set celebrates the occasion with 30 fantastic pieces of memorabilia. In addition to five previously unseen photos and a half-hour DVD of thrilling archival footage, the facsimiles include an extremely rare handbill for a show at the legendary Cavern; a sought-after poster of the band’s appearance at the Tower Ballroom; a ticket to the world premiere of Help!; and a Magical Mystery Tour party invite. No true fan will want to be without this!
“The impact of the Beatles – not only on rock & roll but on all of Western culture – is simply incalculable.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)”
