1961:Performance at Hambleton Hall in Huyton, Liverpool.

http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/02/01/live-assembly-rooms-tamworth-maney-hall-sutton-coldfield/



Live: Maney Hall, Sutton Coldfield
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/02/01/live-maney-hall-sutton-coldfield/

"Malcolm Scott (Johnny West) also has memories of those days: "I had been inducted into the rock 'n' roll world by my friend the late Terry Wallace from The Vikings. I was heavily influenced by Buddy Holly, Billy Fury, Gene Vincent and Cliff Richard, so we performed much of their material. It was 1963, we had plenty of gigs and one of our regular gigs was St Peter's Church Hall, Maney, Sutton Coldfield known locally as Maney Hall. Like many of the support bands at the time we had no stage suits, a leather jacket and jeans was the norm. Our agent contacted my father who handled our bookings and offered our group a gig at Maney Hall supporting a fairly new recording group, The Beatles. Stage suits were a must and a condition of that gig so as we had no stage suits we lost the gig. We never lost another gig due to the lads visiting a gents outfitters at Aston Cross and getting fitted with the red sparkle suits." http://www.multiplusbooks.com/630201.html


1963: Preparation for first British tour

One thing does not go ignored however: John’s ragged physical appearance, fueling speculation that he was using heroin.

http://www.richieunterberger.com/decca.html

1963: Concert at the Granada, Bedford: Day 3 of the Helen Shapiro tour 





1964: Tickets for The Beatles upcoming performance on the Ed Sullivan Show sell out. 

“For weeks, celebrities were calling in to get tickets for their kids. Walter Cronkite and Jack Paar scored seats for their girls; composer Leonard Bernstein tried but failed; while Richard Nixon’s 15-year old daughter, Julie, became one of the lucky few to get a seat. Even Sullivan himself had trouble getting extra tickets. On his show the week before The Beatles’ debut, Ed asked his audience, ‘Coincidentally, if anyone has a ticket for The Beatles on our show next Sunday, could I please borrow it? We need it very badly.’ ”
http://www.edsullivan.com/artists/the-beatles/

Looks like Walter’s daughter didn’t even use her ticket!
“Collectibles from this show are extremely rare. The extent of items that could be found from this show is limited to tickets and ticket rejection notices. Only one unused ticket is known from this show, and it was formerly the property of Walter Cronkite's daughter. There was no poster made to advertise the show. Fakes have been seen on Internet auction sites.”

February 8th

1961: Performance at Aintree Institute in Aintree, Liverpool and then at Hambleton Hall in Huyton, Liverpool. 

1962: Epstein visited a HMV store in Oxford Street, London, to have the Decca audition tape transferred to disc. A HMV technician named Jim Foy liked the recordings, and suggested that Epstein should contact Parlophone's George Martin. The Beatles were signed by EMI's small Parlophone label after the group had been rejected by almost every other British record company, and without Martin ever having seen them play live. Martin later explained that Epstein's enthusiasm and conviction that one day The Beatles would become internationally famous convinced him to sign them.

1963: Concert at the ABC, Carlisle (Helen Shapiro tour). The Beatles are ejected from a ballroom for wearing leather jackets.

1964: Rehearsal for The Ed Sullivan Show:

John, Paul, Vince and Ringo:


“I remember the picture of Ed Sullivan with The Beatles' wig and his comment, when George was ill, 'He'd better show up tomorrow 'cos I'll be the fourth Beatle!' And he put the wig on.” Vince Calandra








1964: Photo session in Central Park, New York, minus the ailing George.






1965:  Once announced in 1965 as the Beatles third movie, “A Talent For Loving” would have been the Beatles experiment in the genre of the Western film. Richard Condon, the writer of “The Manchurian Candidate”, was the author of the novel “A Talent For Loving”. The script was based on a true-life horse race in the 1870’s in which the prize was a wealthy girl! The Beatles would play pioneers in the old West who had tralleled from Liverpool, so the accent problem was bypassed. The Beatles fascination with the cowboy west was evident when you see the group decked out in cowboy attire in various photo shoots from 1964-65 (and on the back of their RUBBER SOUL album). And Ringo Starr (in his pre-Beatle days) once wrote to the Houston Texas chamber of commerce about possible immigration. Although the rights to film were acquired, they finally rejected the film and “A Talent For Loving” was released by someone else in 1969 .

1969 :`Yellow Submarine' LP, 4th week in the Top 30 (Billboard).

1969: John Lennon: Two Virgins enters the ranking, number 158 (Billboard). 

1972: Paul and Linda McCartney, the band (Wings), wives, girlfriends, children, and even pets, climb into a caravan and head onto the motorway, stopping at whichever university town takes their fancy. Their musical instruments, along with two roadies, follow in a van. Once there, Paul will send in an assistant to ask if they can put on a show for the students the following day. Once agreed, word is spread throughout the campus and posters are put up. This happens today at Nottingham University. The road manager for this tour, Trevor Jones, remembers the historic first concert: “We went into Nottingham University Students Union at about five o’clock and fixed it up for lunchtime the next day. Nottingham was the best because they were so enthusiastic. No hassles. No one quite expected it or believed it.”

The Beatles' first Ed Sullivan Show

Just a correction to the information in the above link: the advertisement after “She Loves You” was for Anacin, a headache remedy that had rather dramatic commercials at the time. Perhaps the sponsor was targeting the older generation who weren’t used to rock and roll. ;)
anacin pain 18 times 1964.

“Candace Cushing’s reaction to The Beatles’ first appearance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ …..is immortalized in a newspaper photograph subsequently used in a special edition of Life magazine. Cushing, now a college counselor at King & Low-Heywood Thomas School in Stamford, said, ‘I just fell right into the hysteria.’ ”  http://boomersint.com/memory/beatlemania.htm


I was disappointed when I read this but I still think there was something special going on during that hour: http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/tv/beatles.asp

The Beatles - After the Show



Clips of this very cool part of The Beatles First US Visit are difficult to find on YouTube. I highly recommend buying this excellent DVD.


1966:`We Can Work It Out', 10th and last week in the Top 30 (UK New Musical Express chart). `Rubber Soul' number 1, 10th week (UK New Musical Express chart).

1967: Transmission of `Penny Lane'/`Strawberry Fields Forever' clips on BBC-TV's `Top of the Pops'. 

1982: George Harrison presented UNICEF with a check for $9 million, 10 years after the fund-raising concert for Bangladesh. He is presented with the UNICEF award by Hugh Downes, the chairman of the US committee for UNICEF. George makes this statement at a press conference: “It’s nice to know you can achieve these sort of things. Even though the concert was over 10 years ago and the public has probably forgotten about the problems of Bangladesh, the children still probably need help and the money will have significant impact.” http://history.absoluteelsewhere.net/February/february9.html

1990: Paul's concert in Worcester (`Get Back Tour').

“It’s February, 1964 and WIBG jocks Hyski & Joe Niagara are knocking back complimentary beverages at a swanky “Meet the Beatles” cocktail party at the Plaza in New York . Hyski staggers out of the cocktail party with one thing on his mind: getting the Beatles to Philadelphia. The next day, Lit calls William Morris, the Beatles booking agency, and asks what it will take. “Twenty-five thousand dollars,” they say. Hy doesn’t even blink. He’ll be there tomorrow with a certified check. The Beatles will be on his doorstep on September 2nd.”

Now that's more like it.  :) I am noticing that a lot of the candids from this time period are of John and Cynthia. One of them taken at Heathrow  when they were about to leave was said to be the first media picture of them together. I guess the media really wanted to prove that "Sorry girls he's married" was true.

February 11th

1961: The Beatles had three performances today: at Latham Hall in Seaforth, Liverpool, then evening performances at the Cassanova Club in Sampson and Barlow's New Ballroom in Liverpool. 

1962: Performance at the Casbah Coffee Club

1963: Recording: Please Please Me LP
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/02/11/recording-please-please-me-lp/




The blog linked below states that the above pictures were taken by Dezo Hoffman on March 5, 1963 instead of February 11 and that he had mislabeled them. Is this true and if so, was he even at the Please Please Me recording sessions?
http://www.dograt.com/index.php?s=%22norman+smith%22&searchbutton=Go

 I do know for sure that these were there:



“One of the great stories surrounding this legendary date in Beatles history is that John and Paul were both suffering from severe colds, and had to rely upon tea, milk, 'a big glass jar of Zubes throat sweets on top of the piano, rather like the ones you see in a sweet shop.' Paradoxically, by the side of that, was a big carton of Peter Stuyvesant cigarettes which they smoked incessantly.”

February 19th : I don’t know why Yoko was blindfolded but I suspect it was so she wouldn’t see them turning off her microphone. (:59)  ;D

1962: The Beatles auditioned for Peter Pilbeam, BBC producer of teen radio programs. The audition consisted of four songs: Paul singing his composition “Like Dreamers Do” and “Till There Was You” and John singing “Memphis, Tennesee” and his own song “Hello Little Girl”. John was given a “yes” in Pilbeam’s notes and Paul a “no” but they still all ended up being booked for “Teenager’s Turn” on March 7th. Mark Lewisohn, The Complete Beatles Chronicle and Kevin Howlett, The Beatles at the Beeb

1963: Concerts at the Azena Ballroom, Sheffield?? and Astoria Ballroom, Oldham Lancashire
This concert (Azena Ballroom) was initially thought to have taken place on 12 February 1963; however, later evidence suggests it was, in fact, 2 April of that year. Additionally, a poster featuring The Beatles' 'drop-T' logo, and the 12 February date, is known to be a fake. BeatlesBible.com
