    Beatles - Murray the K Memorabilia Group (1964). Legendary New York DJ Murray Kaufman's fame had already made its way to England before the Beatles landed in the US in 1964, and the group was eager to meet Murray the K when they hit New York. Murray showed them New York, the Beatles appeared on the DJ's program, and the group even referred to him as "The Fifth Beatle." Included in this group is a 7" 33 rpm record As It Happened collecting interviews between the deejay and the group, as well as interviews about the group with such insiders as their manager Brian Epstein during the salad days of 1964. It comes with a paper sleeve with photos on both sides (Condition: EX 7/VG 5). Also included is a 1976 reissue autographed by Murray (Condition: NM 8/EX 7). Want more? How about a press kit with releases and photos, plus two programs (Murray the K's Easter Show and Xmas Show) from 1964 offering up an embarrassment of riches in top acts of the day, including the Chiffons, Drifters, Ben E. King, Kingsmen, Righteous Brothers, Johnny Tillotson, Dionne Warwick, the Zombies and many others. A unique slice of Rock history from a milestone year.
