It was fifty years ago today…

Gretsch DuoJet GuitarOn a bitterly cold Monday, fifty years ago today, the Beatles entered Abbey Road Studios at 9 a.m. – and left almost at midnight that day having recorded the ten songs they needed for their first album, entitled “Please Please Me.”

It spent 30 weeks as the #1 album on the British charts, and served as the gasoline that fueled the Beatlemania that swept England that fateful year.

Happy Anniversary, Rock ‘n’ Roll!
