  "LOVE ME DO" B/W "P.S. I LOVE YOU"
PARLOPHONE 45-R 4949
RELEASED OCTOBER 5, 1962
EARLIEST POSSIBLE FIRST ISSUE STOCK COPY WITH 'JR' DEMO STAMPER

Fully-Signed "LOVE ME DO" A-SIDE LABEL From The BEATLES' Dawson's Music Shop SIGNING session of October 6, 1962

for only thirty minutes beginning at 4pm on the afternoon of saturday, october 6, 1962 - the day following the release of their debut single - the beatles stepped nervously into a new world, giving them the briefest taste of just how the world had changed for them, and how it would never be the same again. it was a small-scale, relatively inauspicious signing session at dawson's music store at 29 Albert Road in Widnes, Cheshire, a satellite town, 15 miles  southeast of liverpool.

FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES IS MOST PROUD TO OFFER a sensational EARLY first pressing of The Beatles' DEBUT single, signed at Dawson's, obtained by a local Liverpool fan named robert Edwards, WHO HAD ATTENDED THE SIGNING. All four Beatles have signed their full names beautifully in ballpoint pen on the a-side  "Love Me Do" label.

due to the fact that the signing session lasted just over thirty minutes, to own a copy of the silver and red label "love me do" single bearing all four signatures of the beatles is very valuable property.

this small scale, relatively trivial event on church street in widnes at dawson's on october 6, 1962 was a fleeting glimpse of the madness which awaited the beatles.

ACCOMPANIED BY LETTER OF AUTHENTICITY FROM FRANK CAIAZZO.

  LIMITED EDITION "BUTCHER COVER" PHOTO SESSION
ARCHIVAL 17" X 15" DIGITAL CONTACT SHEET
SIGNED BY PHOTOGRAPHER ROBERT WHITAKER
ISSUED EXCLUSIVELY BY MORRISON HOTEL GALLERY, 2007
ONLY 25 PRODUCED. THIS IS NUMBER 6/25.

Robert Whitaker happened to meet the Beatles on their 1964 Australian tour when he accompanied one of his journalist friends to an interview with the band’s manager, Brian Epstein. The photo he took during that meeting resulted in Epstein offering him the position of staff photographer at NEMS, where he worked with all of the artists. During his time working with the Beatles, Whitaker became extremely close with the band, photographing them onstage, as well as in quiet moments at homE.

Whitaker's most celebrated work is the 1966 photo which was appropriated for The Beatles' infamous "Yesterday and Today" album cover, which was briefly released in the U.S. in JUNE 1966 but hastily PULLED OFF THE SHELVES AND RECALLED BY CAPITOL RECORDS.

On March 25, 1966, The Beatles went to Whitaker's Chelsea studio for a photo session, intending to take photos for the cover of (and/or to promote) their forthcoming single "Paperback Writer". The band and their photographer were determined to create something more than the run-of-the-mill publicity shots, and among the resulting images was one which has since become known as the "butcher" photo, in which The Beatles are depicted wearing white coats, draped with dismembered doll parts, AND slabs of meat.

WITH ONLY 25 PRODUCED IN 2007, AND SIGNED BY THE LATE ROBERT WHITAKER (1939-2011) IN BRIGHT WHITE THIN MARKER, IS AN EIGHT FRAME DIGITAL 17" X 15" CONTACT SHEET. THESE ORIGINAL NEGATIVES FROM THE "BUTCHER" PHOTO SESSION WERE EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED AND ISSUED BY MORRISON HOTEL GALLERY FOR A VERY LIMITED TIME. THIS ONE IS NUMBER 6 OF 25.

PRESENTED PROFESSIONALLY MATTED AND FRAMED, THIS RARE ITEM HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER "BUTCHER" RELATED COLLECTIBLES.

Bruno Koschmider Betriebe Kaiserkeller stationery.

originally from the private collection of
astrid
KirchherR

STUART SUTCLIFFE, The bEATLES' original bassist still holds a spot as the “fifth Beatle” and, in his own right, has secured acclaim as an artist and poet before his untimely passing - he was only 21 when he died in 1962 from bleeding in the brain.

THIS Amazing and MOST heartfelt original drawing by Sutcliffe IS on the reverse of an off-white 8" x 4" sheet of imprinted Bruno Koschmider Betriebe Kaiserkeller stationery. The composite ink sketch shows a self-portrait of Sutcliffe and a portrait of his girlfriend Astrid Kirchherr inside a heart, with a silhouette of the couple walking hand in hand apparently on a beach, with Sutcliffe writing at the top, “I love you Astrid, with all my heart and soul. Stuart.” On the reverse of the sketch, Sutcliffe has written, “Melancholy me.”

THIS PRESENTATION IS Archivally double glass matted and framed (both sides visible) with a signed photo of Kirchherr, as well as a portrait of Sutcliffe, taken and printed by Kirchherr from her original circa 1960-61 negative, and signed on the reverse in pencil by KirchherR.

  SEPTEMBER 1963 UK "THE Official Beatles Fan Club" Promotional Photo CARD
AUTOGRAPHED ON THE PHOTO SIDE BY THE BEATLES
CIRCA LATE 1963

measuring 5½" X 4¼", THE CARD features THE fabulous black and white Dezo Hoffmann shot from that infamous JULY 1963 photo session, SIGNED BEAUTIFULLY BY ALL FOUR BEATLES IN BLUE BALLPOINT PEN CIRCA LATE 1963.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE CARDS FEATURING the classic "seated collarless suit pose" were signed by the fan club secretaries and sent through the mail to members. The Beatles' road manager Neil Aspinall ALSO signed a good number of these cards while the band was on tour in late 1963 and throughout 1964. However, some cards have turned up which have been authentically signed by John, Paul George and Ringo - but they are quite rare.

ThE 'FAN CLUB' PHOTOCARD was the final promotional card issued AND AUTHENTICALLY Signed EXAMPLES are VERY desirable. THIS ONE IS A BEAUTY INDEED.

WITHOUT QUESTION, THIS IS THE LP THAT IS AMONG THE RAREST OF ALL COMMERCIALLY ISSUED U.S. BEATLES ALBUMS - THE FIRST NEAR MINT EXAMPLE TO HAVE SURFACED - MAKING IT ONE OF, IF NOT, THE VERY BEST CONDITION EXAMPLE KNOWN TO EXIST.

OF ALL THE BEATLES VEE-JAY ALBUMS AND ANY OTHER U.S. COMMERCIAL ISSUED ALBUM, THIS PARTICULAR VERSION OF "INTRODUCING THE BEATLES" IS THE RAREST VARIATION. IT IS THE EARLY 1964 VERSION ONE STEREOPHONIC PRESSING FEATURING THE "TITLES ON BACK" COVER.

WITH APPROXIMATELY FIFTEEN TO TWENTY OF THIS COVER VARIATION HAVING BEEN VERIFIED TO EXIST AT ALL - IT MAKES IT MUCH RARER AND SCARCER THAN BOTH THE VEE-JAY "AD BACK" STEREO ALBUM, AND "THE BEATLES AND FRANK IFIELD" STEREO "PORTRAIT COVER" ALBUM.

THE COVER HAS THE "SEARS & ROEBUCK" LOOSE STYLE BAGGY- WRAPPING STILL RETAINED. THE BAGGY HAS DONE ITS JOB IN PRESERVING THE COVER IN ITS 'AS NEW' NEW NEAR MINT CONDITION. THE RECORD IS THE VERY FIRST LABEL VERSION ONE STEREO VARIATION - AND IS AMONG THE BEST EXAMPLES OF THIS DISC WE HAVE SEEN. THE VINYL IS TRULY 'AS NEW' NEAR MINT WITH NEAR MINT LABELS. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF BEING PLAYED.

THIS IS INDEED A WORLD CLASS EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE ALL TIME RAREST BEATLES ALBUMS IN THE WORLD. THIS IS OUR FIRST OFFERING OF THIS MEGA-RARITY, AND UNLESS SEALED PERFECT, IT CANNOT BE UPGRADED.
