Beatlefan magazine reaches a special landmark this week with the publication of their 200th issue, with a special front and back cover designs by Steven Prazak.
Inside Beatlefan issue #200 is Bruce Spizer’s in-depth 50th anniversary look back at the “Please Please Me” album and The Beatles’ first U.S. single. Also included is the story of the creation of the “Please Please Me” cover, which took a lot longer to come together than the album itself did, and some 200th issue retrospectives by longtime contributors Al Sussman, Rick Glover, Kit O’Toole and Wally Podrazik.
The Beatlefan reviews section in issue #200 includes reports on Jim Berkenstadt’s “The Beatle Who Vanished,” the 12.12.12 concert, the Los Angeles production of “Backbeat” and more. Issue #200 also has exclusive news of the upcoming “Wings Over America” reissue, an on-the-scene report from the Ravi Shankar memorial, a look at Beatles apps for Android phones, and discussion of some mystery photos with Norm & Shake.
