HARRISON SISTER'S J50K LP

A rare signed Beatles album belonging to George Harrison's sister is going under the hammer - and is expected to fetch more than J50,000.

Harrison's only sister Louise is parting with her copy of Meet The Beatles, the first album they released in the US.

Louise got it signed on a train to Washington DC on the band's first concert tour of America in 1964.

"I got all of them to sign it for me," said Louise, 75.

For a while, the record - one of only nine signed US albums - was housed in a rock'n'roll display in President Clinton's library in Little Rock, Arkansas.

When Louise, who lives in a trailer in Branson, Missouri, realised how much it was worth, she decided to sell. She said: "It would be best to use it to help my family."

Louise plans to split the cash between her family, charity, and the Liverpool Legends, a Beatles tribute band she manages





On February 11, 1964 just two days after the Beatles historic first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show in New York, the band boarded a train en route to Washington D.C., where they played their first U.S. concert before a paying audience at the Washington Coliseum. On the train with the Beatles were reporters, as well as members of the Beatles entourage including Louise Harrison, George
