^^^
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.”

1970: John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band ( Yoko, Klaus Voorman, Alan White and Mal Evans) recorded two live performances of “Instant Karma”
for the BBC’s “Top of the Pops”. One version was aired the following night and the other on February 19th. Earlier, on February 5th, the program featured the song along with a silent 16mm film of John and Yoko. (ML)

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

February 20th

1962:  Brian writes to Bert Kaempfert, asking him to release The Beatles from their contract. 
“Brian and George Martin must have hit it off quite well, for Brian felt sufficiently boosted to send a letter on February 20 to Bert Kaempfert, the Hamburg producer, asking that The Beatles be released from their commitment to record again with Tony Sheridan1, and it would seem unlikely that a chance with Polydor Records should be dismissed so easily if Brian's faith in George Martin was not strong. Nevertheless, Martin later wrote that he most certainly would not have offered The Beatles a recording contract before an audition2. Therefore, it seems that Brian was continuing his boldness, believing firmly that, once Martin heard the lads live, a contract was forthcoming.” http://comprehensivebeatles.blogspot.com/2010/10/1962-june-6.html
