Dear Xose, Many thanks. I have some good Beatle friends living in Spain and I am trying to get as much information as possible about their Spanish appearances.

Dear Xose, Thanks for that. Here is a piece about Spain, although you probably know about it:
When the Beatles appeared in Spain in August 1963 they had casks of sherry dedicated to them by the Duke of Primo de Rivera, Lord Mayor of the ancient sherry city of Jerez de la Frontera. Due to their hectic schedule they couldn

Aha... Thank you!! ;)

How could I get a copy?? Are they easily available??

What I'm interested in is in the news devoted to calypso and Latin rock at the very beginning. (=about 60-62), as they are the ones which PM could be mentioning about in that interview...

Best!! ;)

I think I've corrected most of my mistakes, but it would be interesting if someone found any that I'd missed. Yes, it would be much appreciated to have images of posters for the various concerts, plus clippings of any information. The sort of thing Mark was requesting for his project.
I have conducted lots more interviews by e-mail since the last revised edition. It's also interesting to note that in the last decade, more people associated with the Beatles have published their biographies than in all the previous decades.

I always thought the encyclopedia was very complete, but I missed one thing. You're being too modest Bill, you should include yourself in the book as well, not just on the back cover.

Bill, the dates regarding The Family Way are not correct in my edition. The book says that Paul was asked to write the score in 1967, while the movie premiered in 1966.

Plus in my version it is stated that A Hard Day's Night flipside was I Should Have Known Better. It was Things We Said Today.
