JOHN LENNON LETTER ON EARLY BEATLES
1975
A typed letter written and signed by John Lennon sent to Robert Weinstein, who was writing an article about the early days of The Beatles, along with the magazine article itself and Weinstein's notes and correspondence while working on the piece. In the letter Lennon sets the record straight on the group's time in Germany and the earliest Beatles recording, which reads in part: (sic) "We cut a few tracks for Kaemfort. . . My Bonnie . . . was one in which The Beatles backed a London singer, who was 'big' in Hamburg, Tony Sheridan. . . Bert K et al thought the Beatles were TOO BLUESY!" The letter is printed on Lennon Music letterhead, and is signed by Lennon in black fountain pen with his signature face doodle. The entire letter was photographed as a full page in Weinstein's article, which centered on The Beatles' relationship with Bert Kaempfert and Hal Fein, as well as Brian Epstein. Also present is a copy of the finished magazine (Modern Hi-Fi & Music, September 1975), a copy of the letter Weinstein sent to Neil Aspinall at Apple Records, and eight pages of handwritten notes Weinstein made while researching the Beatles story.
