The Beatles sign for George's older sister

Meet the Beatles! promotional album signed and inscribed on the back cover in black ballpoint to George Harrison's older sister Louise: "To Lou with love from Brother!! George Harrison," "To Lou many love from John Lennon, x," "To Louise with love from your older brother!! Paul McCartney, xxx," and "To Lou, Lots of love, Ringo Starr, xxx." In very good to fine condition, with light soiling, partial edge separations, and a small area of surface loss to the front. The record is not included. Beatles albums inscribed to one of their family members are virtually nonexistent and hugely desirable.

The eldest Harrison child, Louise emigrated from Britain years before her kid brother George would form a band called the Beatles. She settled in Benton, IL, and by 1963, had become a staunch supporter for her brother’s group, lugging their records to any radio station that would listen. When the Beatles hit international stardom, Louise was there, too, experiencing firsthand the whirlwind of Beatlemania.

From an interview with REBEAT Magazine, Louise explains her relationship with the other members: ‘For me it was like getting three more brothers. We just all blended in as if we’d always known each other. But I’ve always made a point of never pursuing them. There were so many millions of Beatle fans after them, so I never tried to get in touch with them unless I was there the same time as them for some reason.’
