    Description

    "Mersey Beat" #38. This awesome copy of the January 3-17, 1963 issue, features a full-page article covering a recording session with the Beatles while they worked on on "Please Please Me." Art Roberts, music director for Chicago radio station WLS, placed "Please Please Me" into rotation in late February 1963 -- possibly the first time a Beatles' record was heard on American radio. There's also an ad from Parlophone Records congratulating them on the success of their first single, "Love Me Do," coincidentally released through the record company. In Very Fine condition with light spine and edge wear, a fold crease, and fairly mild tanning. An excellent and very rare back issue.
