The Early Beatles

Gets heavy play this week!

The Early Beatles Fun Facts

The Early Beatles is the Beatles' sixth release on Capitol Records, and their eighth album for the American market.

1     Love Me Do     
2     Twist and Shout     
3     Anna     
4     Chains     
5     Boys     
6     Ask Me Why     
7     Please Please Me

9     Baby It's You     
10    A Taste of Honey

Movie Facts:

In late 1966, John Lennon took time off to play a supporting character, Gripweed, in a film called How I Won the War, also directed by Lester. It was a satire of World War II films, and its dry, ironic British humour was not well received by American audiences. He would later produce avant-garde films with his second wife Yoko Ono, such as Rape which was produced for the Austrian television network ORF.



 

 John Lennon Quote of the week

"I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong."

John Lennon


   
 

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Sunday, September 1, 1963

A Sunday TV taping for ABC Television, but not this time for "Thank your lucky stars" - this appearance was on the variety show "Big Night Out", hosted by Mike and Bernie Winters. (It was the first of four Beatles TV engagements with the comedian brothers)

Fellow guests in this edition included Billy Dainty, Patsy Ann Noble and Lionel Blair. Following daytime rehearsals, the show was taped during the evening on the main stage at ABC's Manchester Studio, before an audience of 600, the Beatles miming to three songs "From me to you", "She loves you", and "Twist and Shout". It was transmitted across most of the ITV network, 7:40 to 8:30 pm. on Saturday, September 7th.

Note: The Beatles had originally been requested to tape their "Big Night Out" debut on Sunday, August 18th, for Saturday, August 24th transmission, but their diary could not accommodate this.
