  • What ever happened to Because I Know You Love Me So?
    It's surprising there is no mention of it in any reference books.
    Can it not be issued on iTunes as a download track?
    Was it a recent 1969 Lennon/McCartney tune or one from the late fifties/early sixties?

      To me, it does not sound like a Lennon/McCartney song from 1969. It is likely a part of the pre-fame repertoire of the band. But it would be a great release.

          Thanks for the update.

          Sales on 10/1/10 were 2,867,152. So that's 31,083 sales in 80 weeks, or only 388 per week.
          1 needs to be re-promoted if it is ever to reach 3 million UK sales!
          Maybe the 2011 release of 1 in September will do it.

              Like every book that Bruce Spizer has done,this will no doubt be a great read and a must have.Sales figures will be included for each disc just like he did for all the American issues,I'm sure.

                                          • Beatles Gold in U.K. Customs' Trove

                                            Britain’s Customs and Excise department is still holding 10 gold discs seized from The Beatles 36 years ago, media reported.

                                            Documents released by the Public Records Office revealed that when the band failed to pay import duty on the collection in the 1960s, Customs decided against selling the discs because they would be worthless.

                                            The discs were awarded in 1964 to each of the Fab Four — Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr — and their manager Brian Epstein by record company Capitol to mark huge sales of “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Something New” in the United States.

                                            After taking America by storm, the band flew back to England but the discs went sent to London by sea.

                                            No Art Exemption

                                            The Times newspaper printed extracts from the documents showing that British Customs officials refused to recognize the discs as qualifying for exemption under the category of awards for “art.”

                                            For three years, the department tried to extract import duty from the band’s representatives but no amount could be agreed upon. By 1967, Customs had given up all hope of receiving payment and discussed a possible sale of the discs.

                                            “I have no idea of the price we could expect to realize, but I understand The Beatles are on the way out (result of quick market research on teenage neighbors),” one customs officer wrote to his superior.

                                            End of the Beatles Craze?

                                            His boss replied: “If we are to realize anything on these golden discs, it means immediate action — when The Beatles craze is ended, the discs will be valueless.’

                                            Customs eventually dropped the idea of a sale because there were fears of unwelcome publicity which would prove embarrassing for the department, The Times reported.

                                            The documents show a valuation of the discs, made of a base metal and painted gold, concluded they had “no commercial value.”

                                            The Sun tabloid quoted Steve Maycock, an expert on rock memorabilia with auction house Sothebys, as saying the discs would be very collectible today.

                                            Sothebys sold a Beatles gold disc in 1999 for 10,000 ($14,095), Maycock was quoted as saying.

                                            The discs remained in storage until 1994 when they were given to the newly-opened Customs and Excise National Museum in Liverpool.

                                              That should read "...47 years ago". Or this news report is actually 11 years old?

                                                This was a release of September 2000. It was my fault that I didn't include this date.

                                                    There are family reunions, and then there are “family reunions” with your friends George, Paul, Ringo and John. The latter is something like a surrogate family — a relationship through lyrics and song, at times spanning the 47 years since the Fab Four arrived in the United States and began a musical revolution.

                                                    When the annual Fest for Beatles Fans returns to the Chicago area Aug. 5-7, Beatles lovers will flock to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare hotel in Rosemont to see old friends, make new ones and celebrate the band that changed music forever.

                                                    “For me, it’s like summer camp for Beatles fans and I feel like the camp counselor,” says Terri Hemmert, host of WXRT radio’s “Breakfast with the Beatles” and Chicago’s Fest for Beatles Fans emcee for the last 34 years.

                                                    Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the festival will feature a slew of Beatles-centric activities. A ’60s dance party, a memorabilia marketplace and auction, impromptu sing-alongs, a sound-alike contest, a Beatles recording studio and a trivia contest, among others, will be featured.

                                                    “It’s just good, clean fun for parents and kids alike,” Hemmert says.

                                                    Attendance at the fest varies year by year, sometimes depending on what’s happening in the Beatle-sphere. When George Harrison died in 2001, attendees rallied to celebrate his life the best way they knew how — by celebrating the music, lyrics, movies and photos he left behind. Likewise, when John Lennon was killed in 1980, the festival served as a space where fans could grieve together.

                                                    “The year after John was shot wasn’t depressing or anything, but there really was a different mood there,” Hemmert remembers. “We all went through the emotional wringer, so it was a good thing for us to be together— it was a healing weekend.”

                                                    This year, more than 5,000 people are expected to attend over the three-day weekend, with many of the attendees coming off a “Beatles high” after Paul McCartney’s two Wrigley Field shows earlier in the week.

                                                    By far the biggest Beatles festival in the United States, the annual gathering is by no means limited to Chicago. Though the Windy City was one of the first places the fest came to, it has since catered to Beatles fans in San Francisco, Houston, Boston, Orlando, Seattle and New York, the city where both the festival and the Beatles began their rise to fame in this country.

                                                    “I was always a big Beatles fan, and in 1973 I thought someone should celebrate their arrival to America,” says Mark Lapidos, Fest for Beatles Fans founder. “I had a vision of a fans’ convention in a hotel, and I said, ‘Why not do it?’”

                                                    Lapidos recalls the exact time and place he first met Lennon and approached him about his seedling idea for a Beatles fan festival . It was April 28, 1974, in New York’s Central Park.

                                                    “He was in the park and he said, ‘I’m all for it. I’m a Beatles fan, too,’” Lapidos says.

                                                    Lennon later got autographs from all four band members for the festival’s first year, beginning a tradition of rare and one-of-a-kind items that can be won or purchased during the event.

                                                    Despite a generation gap nearly 50 years wide since the Beatles’ American introduction, regular attendees say people of all ages come for the same reason: their love of the band and the music.

                                                    “People always ask me, ‘Who comes to these shows?,’ and I say it goes from very young teens and tweens, plus the people that have grown up [with the Beatles],” says Wally Podrazik, panel moderator since the festival’s first year in Chicago. “The young kids want to do Beatles [songs], too, even if the music is decades old, because the songs still resonate with them. Each generation of fans brings their own intensity to it.”

                                                    Podrazik moderates the festival’s annual game show, where esoteric Beatles trivia is tackled.

                                                    “This is a place where people can come together,” Podrazik says. “It’s a shared experience.”

                                                    Hemmert agrees that the festival is about more than just a love for the Beatles.

                                                    “It’s amazing how connected we all feel during that weekend,” she says. “I’ve got all these pictures of kids year after year, and now they’re in college and bringing their kids.”

                                                    But, according to Hemmert, the fest isn’t limited to Beatles fanatics — even the uninitiated can find a place.

                                                    “In fact,” she says, “I think you’ll be a Beatles geek by the time you leave.”
