The People’s Beatles 1963-69

This is a very difficult book to find and/or locate for one’s collection. The people that put the book together solicited fan photos taken between 1963 and 1969. The book was published by Photobox and long-time Beatles associate, Barry Miles, provided much of the narration for the book.

The title was only available to purchase for a very short time and then was no longer being offered for sale. Apparently, the reason it was no longer available was administrative reasons and several people who had contributed photos for the book had not been properly credited.

I was able to find a copy of the book by contacting a gentleman who had contributed photos to the book and had not been credited for their use. Always will be grateful to you, Mr. R. Kern!

There are many wonderful photos of the Beatles in this book capturing the personal nature of fan photography, not being posed for! It is in my opinion, a shame that the book was not allowed to have a much wider circulation.

  1. This is so interesting! Thank you very much! I look forward to your column…a great addition to The Beatles Bookstore!

  2. Would love to see this book! I met R. Kern irl on the roof of the Shankly Hotel during the recent Beatleweek. We had been FB friends for several years.

    1. As stated in the book description, Angie, the book is extremely difficult to find as it ceased publication soon after being released. However, if I happen to spot a copy for you in the Beatle collecting circles, I will certainly let you know! Best Wishes to you and your family!

      1. Hello John,
        I would be very interested in a copy of this book, please contact me if you find a copy.

        1. Hello Lesley and thank you for your comment. Just letting you know that the book is extremely difficult to find. A copy will occasionally turn up on Ebay or a book service such as Abe Books. Sometimes you will also hear about someone getting rid of a collection and the book may be a part of the collection, but that situation is rare. Your best bet in my opinion is to keep a close watch on Ebay! However, if I do see a copy being offered somewhere, I will try to put a note up on the blog to inform people. The trouble with that scenario is the book will be gone very quickly following that announcement. Since there are quite a few people looking for the book, many will be disappointed!
