    "Mersey Beat" #12. Although "Mersey Beat" featured great writing on the local Merseyside music scene, the advertising in this issue cover dated December 14, 1961-January 4, 1962, is of particular note. The front page features a small ad for NEMS Music Store, owned by the family of Brian Epstein, who would eventually write a column for "Mersey Beat" and -- more importantly -- become the manager of the Beatles. The back of the eight-page tabloid features a full-page ad for The Cavern touting performances by the Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and others. In Very Fine condition with light wear and mild tanning. These back issues are ultra rare in the U. K., even rarer here in the States.
