This is a guaranteed original (printed before the concert) concert program featuring a series of six amazing concerts. FOREST HILLS MUSIC FESTIVAL. BARBRA STREISAND – July 12, 1964. Trini Lopez, Count Basie, Woody Allen – July 25. Harry Belafonte, Miriam Makeba, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee – July 31-August 2. JOAN BAEZ with BOB DYLAN (unannounced) – August 8. Johnny Mathis – August 15. THE BEATLES – August 28 & 29. All appearing as part of the 1964 Forest Hills Music Festival, an annual series of concerts in Forest Hills, Queens, New York City. They would produce a program for each year and for the particular concert you were attending there would be a special centerfold page inserted (usually stapled) into the middle of the program. That’s how you know which concert the program was from. The 1964 program, becuase it was the year that The Beatles played this festival is the rarest of the FOrest Hills Festival programs. In 40+ years or searching I have only ever found one copy that had The Beatles as the special insert page. This program, which I have owned since I obtained it from the person that attended this show is from the August 8, 1964 Joan Baez show where Joan brought out her special guest (and boyfriend at the time) BOB DYLAN to perform with her and they performed: 1 Mama, You Been On My Mind; 2 It Ain’t Me, Babe; and 3 With God On Our Side. It is well documented. An exceptionally rare item, indeed. I have only seen a handful of the program from this year and, As I said, only one copy with The Beatles center insert, and only this one copy with the Joan Baez center insert. Very, very rare, especially in this condition! It is completely intact with no splits, no staple rust, as is common on programs of this era, no tears, folded pages, writing or significant waer other than some minor foxing on the front and back cover (visible in my photos) and some foxing on the page preceding and after the center insert, as well. It measures 9 x 12 inches and is 60 pages plus the covers and plus the center insert. THIS IS AN ULTRA RARE ITEM! You will not be disappointed with this item in your collection.

1962 The Beatles original concert poster. On June 30th 1962 The Beatles performed for the second of three times at the Heswall Jazz Club. The concert actually took place at the Barnston Women’s Institute on Barnston Road, Heswall. The Fab Four appeared together with The Big Three and the still relatively unknown boys were announced as “Parlophone Recording Artists”, having JUST been signed to EMI’s small spin off label by George Martin. Martin’s first recording session with the Beatles took place at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London on the 6th June 1962. Martin immediately complained to Brian Epstein about Pete Best’s poor drumming and suggested they use a session drummer in his place. Already contemplating Best’s dismissal, the Beatles replaced him in mid-August with Ringo Starr, who left Rory Storm and the Hurricanes to join them. And as the saying goes, the rest is history! Offered here is an exceptionally rare original poster advertising the performance at the Barnston Women’s Institute on June 30th. The pale blue poster measures 20 x 30 inches and has been stored folded (several times each way) for many years. Bold black and red print announces “An All Star Show – Merseyside’s Joy – The Fabulous Beatles”. Printed by Arthurs Press Ltd. The condition can be described as fair/good. There are multiple tears, creasing throughout, soiling and age related toning to the paper. All the paper is present in it’s original form. No restoration or alterations have been made. This second Heswall Jaz Club outing came at a pivotal time in the Beatles history. They had just signed the recording contract which would lead them to chart topping success, a wave of Beatlemania and subsequent worldwide fame. Within days of the Heswall performance Pete Best was fired from the group and replaced by Ringo Starr, forming the Beatles line up that will forever be remembered.
