Another Single in the Works

March 5, 1963

Now that the Shapiro Tour is history, recording can begin on the the next single with "From Me to You" (written five days ago) and "Thank You, Girl".  Both songs are deliberately addressed directly to the somewhat young female fan base.  With two sides for the next single in the can, the Beatles use the remainder of their studio time today laying down a couple of future possibilities, "One After 909" and "What Goes On".  Both of those will be revisited later.

Some outstanding photographs of this visit to London here.  I love how they are photographed suiting up for another day at the office.  Also, love the velvet collar on Brian Epstein's coat.  So stylish.  The "ad man" looking guy with the horn rim glasses in the pictures is Dick James, the Beatles music publisher.  And the pics from the Abbey Road canteen - Priceless!  And don't neglect to follow that little "On to the recording session-->" link at the bottom of the page.  Some of the very best pictures of Beatles at work anywhere.

"The Source" is definitely one of my favorite web sites.

On March 7th, Brian tries out a new idea.  He loads all of his best acts (The Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Big Three, Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas onto two chartered buses along with 80 local fans and drives them down to Nottingham for an Epsteinfest show. This is the first of six "Mersey Beat Showcases" he organizes.
