The Beatles Please Please Me To With The Beatles
This book covers the albums Please Please Me and With The Beatles, and their associated singles, and the American albums Introducing The Beatles and Meet The Beatles! In addition to the usual chapters on the British, American and Canadian perspectives, the book contains chapters on the Decca audition and the EMI artists test session. There are also chapters on the recording sessions and album covers, as well as on the news, music and films of the era to place these albums in their proper context. And, of course, fan recollections.
The Fan Recollections for The Beatles Please Please Me to With The Beatles brought back memories of these two great British albums, along with their American versions, Introducing The Beatles and Meet The Beatles! In addition, fans wrote about the singles “Love Me Do,” “Please Please Me,” “From Me To You,” “She Loves You” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” as well as seeing the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. The first five Fan Recollections represent a sample of ones we received prior to the publication of the book. Those that follow were sent to us afterwards. We look forward to adding additional Fan Recollections from those who were not in the book or the on-line supplement that also appears in the digital edition.
Bruce is not looking for an analysis about these great albums and singles, but rather your reactions to first experiencing them.
He is also looking for photos taken from 1962 through February 1964 of fans and these albums and singles of the era. I you have pictures of you (and your friends) with Beatles records and memorabilia taken back in 1963 and early 1964, we would love to see them.
