I just came across this and found it very interesting since I grew up listening to this station. It would have been pretty cool if The Beatles first US concert had been here in my area instead of Washington!

The title of the album only appears on the spine.  I bought the LP the day it was released and so my record is labeled The Beatles Again.

February 27

1963: Live: Rialto Theatre, York
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/02/27/live-rialto-theatre-york/


Copyright John Hattersley-Colson

This picture shows the moments before a legendary York performance by The Beatles. Taken shortly before their performance at York’s Rialto concert hall in February 1963, a fresh-faced Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are seen alongside co-manager of the Rialto John Hattersley-Colson in the never-before published photograph.

The Beatles were just beginning to create the buzz which would later turn into full-blown Beatlemania and took to the stage of the Rialto in Fishergate to a rapturous reception. Mr Hattersley-Colson, who turned 80 yesterday, was 29 at the time and remembers the band as being friendly and polite. He recalls they arrived by a big Austin Princess car, and stopped for a drink at the Edinburgh Arms.

He said: “They were nice young lads, there were no airs and graces with them. They were ordinary Lancashire lads like me. The show was fantastic, it went very well indeed. People who went never forgot it. When they became really famous I thought ‘I had a mug of tea with those lads and a laugh and a joke and a giggle with them’.”

The night saw fans disappointed when Helen Shapiro cancelled her performance due to flu. The Evening Press from February 28, however, told how the Fab Four went down a storm with the crowd.

Our reviewer at the time wrote: “Screams of delight greeted The Beatles – a Liverpool quartet who obliged with the songs they wrote themselves and which have taken them into the Hit Parade – Love Me Do and Please Please Me.”York Beatles Appreciation Society Published April 23, 2013

1964: Recording: And I Love Her, Tell Me Why, If I Fell
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1964/02/27/recording-and-i-love-her-tell-me-why-if-i-fell/

1965: Filming: Help!, the Bahamas
On the fifth day of filming Help! in the Bahamas, The Beatles appeared in scenes on Balmoral Island, including the famous sequence for Another Girl. BeatlesBible

This looks fantastic in full-screen.


1965: `Beatles For Sale' number 1, 1st and last week, replacing `Rolling Stones II' (UK Record Retailer chart).

In early 1964, as the Beatles were gaining popularity, the record company Polydor decided to release it, with "Why" changed to the b-side. "Cry for a Shadow"'s original title was "Beatle Bop".

"Cry for a Shadow" was the only officially released Beatles single to feature Pete Best on drums. Wikipedia

March 4th

1961:  Performance at Aintree Institute in Aintree, Liverpool. 

1962: Performance at the Casbah Coffee Club

1963: Live: Plaza Ballroom, St Helens
This was The Beatles' fifth and final appearance at the Plaza Ballroom in St Helens, Lancashire. They had first performed there on 25 June 1962. This was the first time The Beatles were paid £100 for a performance. As an indication of how far they had come in less than a year, they were paid just £25 for their first show at the venue. Beatles Bible



1964:  Mixing: I Call Your Name
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1964/03/04/mixing-i-call-your-name/

1964: `Please Please Me' LP, 50th week in the Top 10 (UK New Musical Express chart). `With The Beatles' number 1, 15th week (UK New Musical Express chart). 

1964: Filming: A Hard Day's Night
As on the previous day, The Beatles travelled between Acton, in west London, and Minehead in the west of England, filming more of the train sequences in their debut film A Hard Day's Night. The train stopped briefly at Crowcombe Heathfield Station in Somerset, where The Beatles ran and cycled alongside the slow-moving train to taunt a fellow passenger, played by Richard Vernon.

Maureen Cleave Remembers John Lennon
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/the-beatles/6769205/Nowhere-Boy-Maureen-Cleave-remembers-John-Lennon.html



1967: Michael Bullock is reinstated by Brian as Saville Theatre house manager.  He was fired after the February 19th incident at the Chuck Berry concert.

1969: “It was now almost five weeks since the Get Back recording sessions, in which time, it seems, the Beatles had decided to all but wash their hands of the entire project. One day in early March John and Paul called Glyn Johns into EMI, pointed to a pile of eight-track tapes-the result of those ten January days at Apple- and offered Johns free rein in preparing a finished album. Glyn duly booked time at his favourite venue, Olympic Sound Studios, and set to work.” The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 316

Lewisohn goes on to say that new records uncovered at EMI in 1991 contain different and, he feels, more reliable information about Glyn John’s work on this project than he had offered in his 1988 book The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions. He also comments on the thoroughness of EMI’s records of all The Beatles recording sessions.

1969: Visitors on the set of “The Magic Christian”:
“On Tuesday, March 4, 1969, Princess Margaret made an unscheduled visit to Twickenham Film Studios to watch Ringo Starr and Peter Sellers during the filming of “The Magic Christian”. She remained on the set from 11am until 5pm. Other visitors to the set that day were Paul and Linda McCartney and Mary Hopkin”. ©Bill Harry/Mersey Beat Ltd.
(This was actually a week before their wedding so she was still Linda Eastman.)

1969: Paul and Linda attended the London premiere of the film "Isadora at the Odeon Theatre, London.

March 5th

1961: Performance at the Casbah Coffee Club in West Derby, Liverpool. 

1962: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern Club
Night performance at the Kingsway Club, Southport

1963: It was very confusing trying to find the correct date on which Angus McBean captured the photo that graced the cover of “Please Please Me”. Some sources said it happened in February, some say today and some don’t even venture a guess. I think the confusion stems from the fact that there were two sessions with different photographers in and around EMI in February and March. Both involved stairs.

March 6th

1961: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern Club.
Night performance at the Liverpool Jazz Society, Temple St., Liverpool

“The LJS date marked the Beatles’ first appearance at what had previously been and would eventually re-emerge as the famous Iron Door Club”
The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 41

1963: Radio: Here We Go

1964: Filming: A Hard Day's Night
Day five of the filming for A Hard Day's Night, The Beatles' debut feature film. As on the previous three days, the group boarded a train at Acton Main Line in west London, to film railway scenes for the early part of the film. On this day their train travelled between London and Newton Abbot in the county of Devon. BeatlesBible

1966: Paul McCartney and Jane Asher began a skiing vacation today, during which Paul composed “For No One”.
During March 1966, Paul McCartney took a two week ski vacation in Klosters, Switzerland, with his girlfriend, Jane Asher. It was there that he wrote one of his greatest, yet somewhat overlooked, compositions. The evocative lyrics are descriptive of the end of a relationship and the melody, although simple, fits perfectly with the baroque pop style that was coming into play about this time. In The Beatles Anthology book, John Lennon is quoted as saying it was a nice piece of work and called it one of his favorites of Paul’s.

1961: Performance at the Casanova Club, Sampson and Barlow's New Ballroom in Liverpool. 

1962: “On March 7 1962 the Beatles entered a BBC studio for the first time. It was the beginning of a long and productive relationship between the group and BBC radio.
Between March 1962 and June 1965 the Beatles appeared on over fifty radio shows and progressed from a group without a record contract to a group with the world at their feet.
In the three years of regular broadcasts for the Beeb, the Beatles performed eighty-eight different songs. Thirty-two of those songs were Lennon-McCartney originals; the others were cover versions-mostly American rhythm and blues songs. Thirty-six  of the songs were never issued on disc by the Beatles.” The Beatles at the Beeb, Kevin Howlett, page 10

http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/03/07/live-mersey-beat-showcase-nottingham/



“In the audience that night was local lad Rob Taylor, then in his twenties. He reminisced about enjoying the show, but it was an event afterwards that stands out in his mind above everything else:

"When the show had ended I nipped off quickly to the loo before me and my mates left for home. After a while wandering around, I realized I was lost. One of the doors I randomly tried led into a sitting area where I could see some people chatting. When they heard the door open they turned around and I could see that it was the Beatles. It could have been very awkward, me walking in on them like that, but they were very nice about it. They directed me to the toilet and I went on my way." multiplusbooks.com
