This month, “A Tale of Four Beatles” continues, up to new year 1963. There are a few photos from the two Fan Club events the previous December and there’s a report on “Their Spectacular Christmas Show” in December by Frederick James.
Centre: Ringo on stage at Wimbledon Palais, 14 December 1963.
In February, they finish the Paris shows, then they fly to America for the first time. An estimated 5,000 screaming fans greet them at JFK Airport. In between live performances, they appear twice on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Not easy to tell from the cover, although there are small shifts in the position of some text. Easy way to check, open the centre pages. In an original book the background was darkened to hide three people in the shadows behind Ringo, but they are clearly visible in the reprint.
