The Beatles performed at the Oxford Street Odeon, Manchester. This gig became famous because it was the first one attended by Derek Taylor – Apple’s future press man. He had a column in the Northern edition of the ‘Daily Express’ and wrote, “[the concert] was as beneficial and invigorating as a week on a beach at the pier head overlooking the Mersey. Their stage manner has little polish but limitless energy, and they have in abundance and fundamental rough good humour of their native city. It was marvellous, meaningless, impertinent, exhilarating stuff.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
