    Meet the Beatles Two-Page Trade Publication Ad (January 1964). A beautiful Capitol Records double-page ad introducing the Beatles to a wider American audience, thanks to the huge success of Capitol's release of the group's first single for the label, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and repackaging of With The Beatles, their second UK album. The impact this first major American hit song had was phenomenal, and everyone wanted more, more, more from the "yeah, yeah, yeah" boys. The ad (probably from Billboard) has a combined image area of 19.5" x 13.75"; the paper has been mounted and professionally retouched to appear as one continuous page. It's ready to display, matted to an overall 24" x 18", and appears in Excellent condition. The Meet the Beatles trade publication ad is professionally matted using all acid-free materials.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
