It’s been a while since we had an instalment of The Beatles With Records.
For those unfamiliar with the idea, this is about the Beatles being photographed actually holding or nearby the things they sold so many of – LP and single records.
Since the last post (Part 18 back in March) quite a few more photos have come into the Beatles Blog.
First up a couple of shots featuring a young Ringo Starr signing LP’s: Those two albums above look like 1) Please Please Me, and 2) A Hard Day’s Night:
These air hostesses also have copies of AHDN – this time they are hopeful that Paul McCartney might sign:Back to Ringo again and a female fan seeking an autograph for her autograph book is flanked by a young man holding a copy of Yellow Submarine (you can see the rear cover art here): Below, a copy of a US Sgt Pepper is held out at a concert event starring Harry Nilsson (front, leaning forward) and Ringo (behind him). Doesn’t look like the fan got that one signed….:Next, a solitary George Harrison gets ready to sign a copy of the inner sleeve of his 1975 solo album Extra Texture – Read All About It:
If there’s a theme emerging here it’s the Beatles, either as a band or solo, signing copies of their albums for fans. Here’s John and Yoko – but which record? Any ideas?
This next one rang a bell when I saw it. It looks like it is on a train, possibly during the Beatles first tour of the USA: It reminded me very much of this colour photograph of John Lennon (from Part 3), which looks to have been taken in the same place and on the same day:
While we’re on the subject of the US version of Meet the Beatles, this happy fan also seems to have scored a signed copy:
And lastly for this instalment yet another signing of a copy of Sgt Pepper, this time on the inside of the gatefold cover:
