Limited edition offers plaque with early photo and ticket reproduction

(6/11/03) Recording Artists - a new Beatles limited edition - is offering fans the chance to buy a framed print of one of the first official photographs ever taken of The Beatles - the first ever to feature the bass drum bearing the band's name, together with a reproduction ticket for the St. Paul's Presbyterian Church Youth Club appearance of March 1962.

The significance of the term 'Recording Artists' is based upon the Polydor recordings made by The Beatles in Hamburg; recordings that had a profound affect upon their fortunes and destiny. There were two parts to The Beatles story, pre-fame - 1960 to 1962 and the fame years - 1963 to 1970. This package epitomizes those pre-fame years by combining an important photograph, taken only a week after Brian Epstein became The Beatles' manager, with a reproduction ticket for an appearance that was made only a few days before they abandoned their leathers in favour of suits.

This was a period in The Beatles story that saw them at their most raw. It was the end of an era and the beginning of something huge, summed up by the ticket itself, which bears the prophetic term 'Recording Artists'.
