9780847841059: The Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World. February 1964

Astonishing, richly spontaneous, and almost entirely unpublished images of the Beatles’ historic first trip to the United States, as chronicled by an award-winning photographer given unique access to their tour. Published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles’ first visit to the United States, this rare and mostly unseen collection of photographs marks the beginning of the British Invasion. In February 1964, photographer Bill Eppridge was on assignment for Life magazine to cover the band’s arrival at JFK airport. He was then invited to continue shooting in their room at the Plaza Hotel and during the days that followed, notably at the Ed Sullivan Show rehearsal and historic performance; in Central Park; on a train ride to Washington, D.C., for the concert at the Washington Coliseum; at the British embassy; and at their renowned performance at Carnegie Hall. The book is an intimate fly-on-the-wall account of a visit that introduced the Beatles to America and changed the course of music, internationalizing the industry and opening the door for other artists to achieve global success.

About the Author:

Bill Eppridge was one of the most accomplished photojournalists of the twentieth century. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including National Geographic, Life, and Sports Illustrated. Eppridge received some of the highest honors his profession bestows: the NPPA Joseph A. Sprague Memorial Award (1996), The Missouri School of Journalism Honor Medal (2009), and the Lucie Award for Achievement in Photojournalism (2011). His photographs have been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and in other museums around the world. British fashion photographer, publisher, and filmmaker Rankin attained success after co-founding style bible Dazed & Confused—and subsequently fashion titles AnOther and AnOther Man. After developing a taste for film direction, he established Rankin Film Productions. More recently, he returned to magazine publishing with a fresh biannual glossy The Hunger.

Review:

"This largely unseen collection of photos by award-winning photojournalist Eppridge (on assignment for Life magazine) celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ now famous first American tour... The exuberance and magic of the event shines through in Eppridge’s spontaneous and moving shots of casual moments... The book offers 160 stunning black-and-white images culled from the 90 rolls Eppridge shot during the six days he spent with the band... Organized by day and featuring detailed captions for each image, the book allows readers to relive the excitement of a nation witnessing these four Liverpool lads’ rise to stardom." ~Publishers Weekly

"There is an innocence to the images in The Beatles Six Days That Changed the World... The photographs show a fresh-faced group of musicians, gracious and grateful and not yet jaded by their fame. The world was smaller then, and the foursome appears genuinely enthralled with the United States. Even the fans who followed the band seem virtuous in their headbands and cardigan sweaters. This is, of course, the start of Beatlemania, which would eventually spread across the globe. Luckily Eppridge was there to capture the frenetic energy of a generation enthralled." ~Photo District News

"...the book contains rare and mostly unseen images from the band’s US tour. Eppridge, an eminent photojournalist, expressed a desire to capture the moments of the tour as they occurred, without any of his own orchestration or input. The result is a set of pictures that evoke the excitement, discovery and sheer mania of the Fab Four’s initial contact with America. The band’s Plaza Hotel room, Central Park, the British Embassy, and the Ed Sullivan show are just a few of the locations that are featured in the images." ~Hunger TV

"Eppridge’s Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World is fab." ~Vanity Fair 

"Photographer Bill Eppridge was on assignment for Life magazine to shoot the Beatles as they landed in New York, and he stayed with them as they horsed around, posed with fans and played the concerts that made history. The photos -- most never before published -- are intimate, casual and show the band members having fun in the moments when they launched a new kind of rock 'n' roll stardom." ~Los Angeles Times

“See the intimate fly-on-the-wall images from the six days that transformed the Beatles from an English band to international pop sensations and evoke the excitement and mania of the Fab Four’s first contact with America.” ~Parade
 
“Six Days that Changed the World
takes fans through those first magical days in 1964, helping readers experience them just as Eppridge and The Beatles did through the black-and-white images.” ~CT Post
