Southern Interest

February, 13, 1962

Brian Epstein travels down to London for a meeting with Parlephone A and R man George Martin which was scheduled last week.  Martins office is at Manchester Square in London.  His listens to the still warm audition disks and likes what he hears.  He starts thinking about who they should bestowed the title "leader" of the band upon.  All these rock outfits have a leader, don't they?  OK, Mr Epstein, lets bring them down for a recording test sometime soon.

What with the busy life of a record man and a trip to Hamburg for the band in the offing, nothing would happen on the recording front for three months.  But the gears have undeniably begun turning, slowly at first like the hour hand on Big Ben.  Epstein returns to Liverpool with some very optimistic news.

Whew!  A lot of Beatle activity this month, just two years before they conquer the USA and the rest of the world.
