Uncommon 5.75 x 4.5 EMI Records invitation for a lunchtime cocktail party "to be given in honour of Britain's top recording group The Beatles" at the EMI House in London on November 18, 1963, signed neatly on the reverse in blue ballpoint by John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr. The invitation is numbered "27" and is issued to "Mrs. B. LeHoine." In fine condition, with a few light stains on the invitation side. Just prior to this cocktail reception, the Beatles attended a special ceremony at EMI House at which EMI chairman Joseph Lockwood presented the band with silver discs to mark the 250,000-plus sales of Please Please Me and the soon-to-be-released With the Beatles. Legendary producer George Martin then gave each of them smaller discs to mark the sales of the Twist and Shout EP, and music editor Gerald Marks presented them with silver discs for the Twist and Shout EP and 'She Loves You' single. A fantastic fully signed piece from this historic event in Beatles history.
