Fotos raras dos Beatles vão a leilão e não há uma “Estrela (Starr)” entre elas!

A reportagem é do Mirror/UK e saiu hoje, dia 11 de agosto de 2014.

Foto de John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison e Pete Best tiradas no Cavern Club em Liverpool no início da carreira deles pode atingir cerca de £1,000.

Uma das fotos mais antigas dos Beatles no Cavern Club em Liverpool será leiloada ainda este mês juntamente com uma série de outras passagens descobertas sobre a banda no começo de sua carreira.

A foto, tirada em 1961, mostra Paul McCartney na frente do palco e Pete Best na bateria – um ano antes de ser substituído por Ringo Starr.

Stephen Bailey, o administrador da Loja dos Beatles em Liverpool, disse que a venda das peças inclui uma série de negativos trazidos na loja da Mathey Street por um homem que casualmente disse a ele: “Meu pai era um fotógrafo profissional e estes negativos devem ser de seu interesse.”

Mr. Bailey disse que o homem manuseava uma série de envelopes cujo conteúdo parecia estar em perfeitas condições.
Uma outra foto que apareceu na hora mostrou George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney e Pete Best posando com seis garotas.

Beatles e as 6 garotas

Mr. Bailey disse que fez um trabalho investigativo sobre as fotografias e descobriu que elas foram tiradas em 14 de junho de 1961, em St. John’s Hall, Tuebrook, Liverpool – na primeira vez que a banda tocou depois de retornar de Hamburgo.
Ele também rastreou duas das garotas da foto. Uma delas já faleceu, ele soube, mas ele ainda está procurando pelas outras três.

“É uma fotografia muito simpática e demonstra o relacionamento que os Beatles tinham com suas primeiras fãs,” disse Mr. Bailey.

“Estou muito entusiasmado com este leilão. Ele se torna maior e melhor a cada ano.”

Mr. Bailey, que administrou a Loja dos Beatles por 28 anos, disse que haverá 330 lotes no leilão incluindo exemplares da primeira, segunda e terceira edições da lendária revista Merseybeat, publicada em 1961.

Disse ele que estes exemplares apareceram recentemente quando um outro cliente calmamente caminhou até a loja e disse: “Penso que você vai gostar de dar uma olhada nisso.”

Disse ainda que achava que as fotos do Cavern Club poderiam atingir £1,500 e as revistas Merseybeat poderiam atingir entre £2,500 e £3,000.

O Leilão Anual em Liverpool de material sobre os Beatles acontecerá no Auditório Paul McCartney do Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts no sábado, 23 de agosto de 2014.

O jornal Liverpool Echo lançou uma campanha para procurar descobrir quem são as fãs na com os Beatles e duas das moças já foram encontradas.

Como podemos notar na foto, a banda parece bem à vontade enquanto posa com as seis fãs durante uma apresentação em St. John’s Hall, em 1961. O concerto foi o primeiro a ser realizado pelos Fab Four após retornarem de Hamburgo, onde tocavam no The Star Club e os shows incluíam Pete Best.

Sandra Swift, de Kirkby, disse que sua cunhada apontou a foto no papel e identificou como sendo ela a garota que está no meio, abaixo de John Lennon.

Disse ela: “Eu não pude acreditar quando vi isso… me trouxe muitas recordações do passado.
Eu tinha somente 15 anos na foto e agora estou com 68.”

Sandra, que cresceu em Seaforth e cujo nome de solteira era Thomson, acrescentou: “Eu comprei uma foto de George Harrison quando eles estavam em Litherland, e pedi pra ele autografar.
Eu comprei por seis pences e a vendi poucos anos depois for £600!”

Wendy Riley contatou o ECHO identificando a mulher à esquerda da fotografia como sendo sua falecida mãe Yvonne Leigh.
