An unusual gift for the Beatles fan
If there’s a Beatles fan on your gift list, the chances are that he or she has lots of CDs, recordings, books and more. So what on earth can you buy for them that will be fascinating and truly appreciated? Here’s a wonderful idea at a very attractive low price, too.
This site offers a compilation pack of over sixty newspaper pages from the New York Times (replicas) that showcase Beatles news starting with the first time they performed in America right through until the assassination of John Lennon. This is absolutely fascinating. As you can see from the images,the articles include photographs and this gives the fan the unusual opportunity of seeing the group in a contemporary setting. So many books have been written, and will continue to be, but these historical newspaper reprints show us how the group was perceived at the time.
Interestingly, the Beatles are as popular today as they were before the group split up – whole new generations are discovering their music – and realizing what an amazing phenomenon they were in their day. Now, we can see them in a truly historical perspective. What a truly fascinating gift this will be.
