BRUCE SPIZER IS LOOKING FOR YOUR
One of the key components of the Beatles Album Series books is the fan recollections section. This has been the case from the very start. After all, the first book in the series is titled “The Beatles and Sgt. Pepper, a Fans’ Perspective.”
Although Bruce has not reached a final decision on his next book project, he wants to begin accumulating fan recollections on other Beatles albums at this time, while memories are still intact. As he is looking for your HELP!, he decided to begin the process with HELP!
Please send your recollections of the Help! film and/or the album and/or the single. If you were introduced to HELP! through the Capitol soundtrack LP, please send your recollections of that album. Only write about the Parlophone LP if that was the disc you grew up with.
Because he wants to print as many recollections as possible, please do not provide a detailed analysis of the album or film. Our readers will be more interested in initial reactions and how each affected you and your friends.
If you have pictures from 1965 of yourself with the album or going to the film, please send them.
We will not be able to include all of the fan memories submitted in the book when it eventually comes out, but we plan to post them on our website upon the book’s publication. Due to space limitations, we may need to edit your recollections, but we will try to keep the essence of your comments.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION FOR HELP! RECOLLECTIONS:
February 15, 2021
200 word maximum.
Shorter comments are fine.
SUBMIT YOUR MEMORIES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION ON THE WEBSITE – BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME, along with where and when you first encountered the album or saw the film. By submitting, you give your permission for Bruce Spizer and 498 Productions LLC to use your submission in part or full in any print, digital, marketing or any other use.
