The Fab Four's First


I was searching for something else in a 1962 edition of the Melody Maker when I came across this review of the Beatles with Tony Sheridan. It is undoubtedly the first mention of the Fab Four in the mainstream music press - they'd appeared in Merseybeat but that's all. I love the last line....

Fantastic! Do you have the original newspaper? It must be a collector's item.
