About this item

Perhaps the best one-off magazine entirely about The Beatles that you will ever read. It is packed full of supremely interesting articles about The Beatles – the Twist and Shout EP cover, the Benefit of Mr Kite poster, The Beatles 1964 visit to Amsterdam, the photoshoot on the beach at Weston-Super-Mare, Beatles autographs, the making of the poster for the White Album, jobs held by J, P, G and R before they became famous, they are described in more detail below. The level of research on each of these articles is incredible and all are accompanied by rare and unseen photographs. It is 116 pages and measures 21cm x 29.75cm (8.75 inches x 11.75 inches). This is the second printing of the issue.

The January 2019 issue of FURORE magazine is a true collector’s edition, with 116 pages in full colour, entirely devoted to The Beatles.

WHERE THEY JUMPED — The EP Twist and Shout’, rush-released in July 1963, had a revolutionary cover picture: four fashionably dressed lads, ready to take on the world, seem to emerge from the bricks and rubble of all our yesterdays. It was their defining shot of 1963 and a prophetic glimpse at the future of pop. For more than 55 years any questions of ‘who, when and where’ were obscured by a smokescreen of wild guesses and near misses. Andre Barreau takes up the challenge and finally solves the ‘JUMP’ puzzle. His 22-page article is illustrated with Fiona Adams’ original photos and contact sheets, historic photos, maps and diagrams.

SO THEY CANAL SEE US — In June 1964 the Beatles toured Amsterdam by boat – a sensational spectacle allowing thousands of fans to see them. The trip through the canals also gave them a rare opportunity to actually see something of a city they were visiting. It was an unparalleled media event, causing a veritable explosion of photographs and film footage. Although most of this material is well known, some aspects of the canal tour remain obscure: who was the organiser, who jumped into the water, and who landed on the Beatles’ boat during the tour’s dramatic apotheosis? A 22-page article, illustrated with many unseen photographs.

KITE: THE ORIGINAL POSTER — It must be the Holy Grail of Pepper periphery: the nineteenth-century poster inspiring John Lennon to write ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!’ Only a few photographs of it have ever seen the light of day. Finally, after all these years, the actual item is on display at an exhibition in Liverpool.

THE BEATLES ON THE BEACH — A visit to Weston-super-Mare, the location of not one but four historic photo locations. A minute-by-minute examination of Dezo Hoffmann’s Beatles sessions involving historic bathing suits, Go-Karts, donkeys and tea-cups.
