About Beatles

Beatles

THE BEATLES. English rock band first formed in Liverpool in 1960. The most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their cultural impact during the 1960s (along with their enormous popularity) helped coin the term "Beatlemania" for the hysteria that was generated at concerts and public appearances. Originally they had an early five-piece line-up of John Lennon / Paul McCartney / George Harrison / Stuart Sutcliffe (bass) and Pete Best (drums), The Beatles built their reputation in Liverpool at The Cavern and Hamburg clubs over a three-year period from 1960. Sutcliffe left the group in 1961 and Pete Best was replaced by Ringo Starr the following year. They were then moulded into a professional outfit by music store owner Brian Epstein after he offered to act as the group's manager. John Lennon and Paul McCartney developed into pop musics most successful ever song-writing partnership and the groups musical potential was further enhanced by the hands-on creativity of production genius George Martin. The group achieved UK mainstream success in late 1962 with their first single "Love Me Do", then gaining international popularity over the course of the next year with a succession of brilliant innovative hit singles and LPs. They toured extensively until 1966, then retreated to the recording studio until their breakup in 1970. During these studio years, The Beatles produced what critics consider some of their finest material including the album ; "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Band" (1967)widely regarded as a masterpiece. Each group member then found future success in their own independent musical careers. Cultural icon John Lennon was sadly shot dead (aged just 40) in New York in 1980 by madman Mark Chapman and George Harrison lost his battle with cancer in 2001. As of  2010, Paul McCartney is still releasing new music and touring regularily and Ringo Starr remains much in the public eye. Incredibly four decades after their breakup, The Beatles remain household names and their influential music portfolio continues to be popular worldwide, a trend that is likely to continue for the decades to come. To date it is estimated that they have sold over One Billion records...............

Of historical significance and an extremely desirable "treasure" to a serious Beatles collector because of the autographs being linked with the iconic TV Show Ready Steady Go.

 

Certification:

The 20th March 1964 show featured the second appearance of The Beatles and became the highest ranked of any of the Ready Steady Go programmes ever. The show was filmed / broadcast live from Television House Holborn London between 6.15-7pm and the group mimed to three songs ; "It Wont Be Long" / "You Cant Do That" and "Cant Buy Me Love" which was actually released the same day. Also on the show were The Animals and Bobby Vee ; The Beatles took part in a mock fashion parade and were also interviewed receiving a US Award by host Cathy McGowan. The two signatures were obtained as The Beatles took to the stage on the evening by an 18 year old D Flett , who on arrival at the venue had been picked by the producer to be a studio floor dancer (his unused dancer badge is included).

The opposite (attached) page to Harrison & Starr is signed by Colin Anthony (adding Combo). The Beatles were supported only once by The Colin Anthony Combo along with Chet & The Triumphs and this was when they played at The Bath Pavilion on 10th June 1963. This is therefore very likely to be the actual signing date for this set of autographs. This was the only time The Beatles ever played a concert in Bath and was the night after they had finished their highly succesful UK tour with Roy Orbison. There is a Bry Martin autograph on the reverse of the John Lennon page. This tour / period marked the start of "Beatlemania" for the group. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.

Certification:

The autographs were obtained by teenager Christine Wilkinson at The Odeon Leeds on 5th June 1963. The Beatles were at the time on tour supporting Roy Orbison and Gerry and The Pacemakers , however the audience response to them became so huge that they headlined at some venues during this May-June 1963 tour. Christine actually left her brand new autograph book at the stage door as her parents would not allow her to go to the concert and she then collected it several days afterwards. She was over the moon to find her book had been signed by both The Beatles and Gerry and The Pacemakers (also included in the same book). Generally the groups management signed the autograph books left at stage doors but these are very rarely genuinely signed. This has been checked and confirmed by two of the UKs leading Beatles authenticators. Also included is a letter from Christine detailing the history of the book. Beatles specialists Tracks of Chorley COA included.

Certification:

The autographs were obtained purely-by-chance in person by a young Dorothy Hall, when she saw the group entering a hotel in Newcastle where she was delivering business cards. She had nothing to get signed and this Airmail envelope she remembers was actually given to her by George as he signed it. There is a letter included from her, further detailing the history. Recent memory suggests they were appearing with Roy Orbison. If this is correct we can date the signatures to 8th June 1963 when they appeared at The Newcastle City Hall. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.

Certification:

Following extensive research we have concluded that these autographs must have been obtained at The Tower Ballroom New Brighton on June 21st 1962 during Bruce Channels tour of the UK. Channel toured England in June 1962 on the strength of his No1 hit single "Hey Baby" with musician and harmonica player Delbert McClinton in support. Brian Epstein booked them to top a NEMS Enterprises promotion at the Tower Ballroom in New Brighton (close to Liverpool) on June 21 , placing his virtually unknown group The Beatles a prestigious second on the bill. The group had already signed with Parlophone, but had not yet recorded for the label. It is known that McClinton and John Lennon spent about fifteen minutes backstage in deep conversation. John was impressed with McClinton's harmonica style and asked Delbert to show him how to play the harmonica introduction to "Hey! Baby". In September 1962, the Beatles recorded "Love Me Do", with a harmonica solo no doubt inspired by "Hey! Baby" and McClintons influence can also be heard on later Beatles recordings including "Please Please Me" in 1963. The history of these particular autographed pages between 1962 and 1980 is unknown. The recent vendor who works in the entertainment industry was given them by a musician in 1980 in lieu of a bad debt. The autographs have since been confirmed as genuine by all the specialist Beatles authenticators we have contacted.
