CAPITOL, PRO 2548 / 2549
ISSUED TO RADIO STATIONS: FEBRUARY 1964

PROMOTIONAL "NOT FOR SALE" SLEEVE & COMPACT 33 DISC

(ACTUAL SCANS)

TO ENCOURAGE DISC JOCKEYS TO PROMOTE THE BEATLES, CAPITOL PREPARED OPEN-END INTERVIEW RECORDS THAT ALLOWED A DISC JOCKEY TO GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT HE WAS PERSONALLY CONDUCTING AN IN-STATION INTERVIEW WITH THE GROUP. THE ILLUSION WAS CREATED BY COMBINING A SCRIPT OF STATEMENTS AND QUESTIONS TO ASK THE GROUP WITH A RECORD CONTAINING GAPS OF SILENCE FOR THE DJ TO READ THE SCRIPT BETWEEN THE PRE-RECORDED RESPONSES OF THE BOYS.

AS PART OF ITS BEATLES CAMPAIGN, CAPITOL SENT COPIES OF THE FIRST BEATLES INTERVIEW RECORD TO BROADCASTERS IN FEBRUARY, 1964. IT WAS TITLED "THE BEATLES OPEN-END INTERVIEW".

THIS MOST SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST OPEN-END INTERVIEW SET IS AN ABSOLUTE WINNER INDEED.

  "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.

  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.

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.
