the photo was snapped at russell square, bloomsbury, london on july 2, 1963. this location was one of many that day, as dezo had named the day's shoot as "a day in the life of the beatles".

WHEN THESE PUBLICITY PHOTOS DO SURFACE AND ARE SIGNED, THE SIGNATURES ARE USUALLY THOSE OF EITHER BEATLES ROAD MANAGER NEIL ASPINALL OR BEATLES ASSISTANT MAL EVANS.

THE BEATLES HAVE SIGNED IN BLUE BALLPOINT NEAR THEIR RESPECTIVE IMAGE, AND ARE EXCELLENT EXAMPLES FROM THIS PERIOD.

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".
