Please Please Me
Description  

Incredibly desirable 1963 UK fourth pressing of their Please Please Me album signed and inscribed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, “To Steve, all the best and a Happy Birthday from the Beatles, George Harrison,” “John Lennon xx,” “Ringo Starr,” and “Paul McCartney.” In very good condition, with scattered light toning, soiling, and dampstaining to back cover, creasing to edges, and some light rippling, creasing, and edge wear to front cover. The record is included.

Signatures were obtained backstage at the Granada Cinema in London on June 1, 1963. Accompanied by a 2014 letter of provenance from the original recipient, which reads, in part: “I was given a signed copy of the Please Please Me album as a birthday present. My brother, Clive, met the Beatles on the Roy Oribison-Gerry and the Pacemakers tour of May 1963. When I asked my brother recently for his memories of his meeting with the Beatles he recalled the following: ‘I saw the Beatles at the Granada Tooting on the 1st June 1963…George and Paul were very chatty and George complained that he had ‘an orrible headache after that’…John and Ringo didn’t say much, just signed the album, which JL threw on the floor.’ George Harrison wrote the dedication…and all four signed their names. The album has been in my possession since 1963.” This particular day was an incredibly busy one for the band: besides two shows at the Granada that day, they also spent eight hours at the BBC Paris Studio in London, filming two episodes of Pop Goes the Beatles. Also on this day, their debut album, Please Please Me, secured its fourth straight week at the top of the British charts. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
