STARR, RINGO - You're Sixteen


The Beatles - George Harrison, autogragh/ signature, a very nice and clear signature from about 1963/64, the heyday of Beatlemania. George has signed his name in full, in blue ink on an inner white/ die-cut poly LP sleeve. The vendor had a chance meeting with the Beatle at a hotel, in the South West of England, and the only piece of paper that was availble for signing was an inner sleeve from a LP record which the vendor was carrying. Which according to the vendor George was happy to sign, although they joked about it not being a Beatles record that he was carrying. The overall size of the sleeve is 300mm x 300mm, and could be trimmed to about 80mm x 60mm for mounting with a good period photo of George.

The B side is a really good fuzzy psych track and it has only recently become clear that The Pleasure Garden was in fact The Iveys moonlighting for the sake of a session fee. The song is not an undiscovered Pete Ham gem, but was written by Jeremy Cox and John Sidey
