Not that the song selection mattered very much--the screaming had become so loud that no one could hear much more than a few notes of music, not even The Beatles themselves.

Wednesday, November 2, 1960: The Beatles perform at the Kaiserkeller Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.

Friday, November 2, 1962: The Beatles perform at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany.

Saturday, November 2, 1963: On the second night of a tour of Britain, The Beatles perform for two "houses" at City Hall in Sheffield.

Monday, November 2, 1964: The Beatles, performing this one night in Northern Ireland during their tour of Britain, perform two shows at King's Hall, Balmoral, Belfast.

Tuesday, November 2, 1965: The second and final day of filming for the Granada TV television special "The Music of Lennon & McCartney". See Nov. 1, 1965, for details.

Thursday, November 2, 1967: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Three, EMI Studios, London). Recording the final overdub for "Hello Goodbye" (a second Paul McCartney bass line). "Hello Goodbye" is then mixed into mono for the last time. It has been selected for the A-side of The Beatles' next single, the flip side to be John's "I Am the Walrus" (released on November 24 in the UK and November 27 in the US). John was quite irritated that his complex song was being stuck onto the B-side of the single, while Paul's song (which he considered to be somewhat inane) was made the A-side. While John's feelings are easily understood from an artistic point of view, there can't be much doubt that "Hello Goodbye" possessed a greater commercial potential than "I Am the Walrus" did.

Saturday, November 2, 1968: "Hey Jude" is the #1 single in the US for the sixth week in a row.

Wednesday, November 2, 1988: UK release of yet another re-packaging of the 30 tracks from the Star-Club tape recorded Dec. 31, 1962: a box set of 15 singles (Baktabak). Not satisfied with this, Baktabak also issued a CD containing all 30 tracks (and a double LP too!) on Nov.21.

Monday, November 2, 1992: UK release of Beatles 5-inch CD singles box set "The Beatles Singles Collection" (Parlophone). Box set of 22 5-inch CDs of the 22 original Beatles singles released in the UK. Pretty much the same as the earlier 3-inch CD singles box set except for the size of the CDs. Each CD single enclosed in a different picture sleeve.

Saturday, November 2, 1963: Release in Sweden of Beatles single "I Want to Hold Your Hand/This Boy" (Parlophone). Eight weeks in the Swedish charts; highest position #1.

Monday, November 4, 1963: The Beatles perform their legendary Royal Command Performance at the Prince of Wales Theatre, London, before the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret. Technically The Beatles were 7th on a 19-act bill, but there was no doubt that they were, in fact, the main attraction. The Beatles called upon their masterful showmanship to put on a stunning four-song performance. They began playing their first song, "From Me to You", before the curtain opened. John and Paul, at the end of the first song, moved their microphones nearer to the audience. After playing their second song, "She Loves You", The Beatles bowed to the audience. A nervous Paul cracked a joke about Sophie Tucker being The Beatles' favorite American group, then they performed "Till There Was You". At the end of that song, Paul and John moved their microphone stands back to their original position. After waiting for the applause to die down, John introduced "Twist and Shout", requesting that persons in the cheaper seats join in by clapping their hands, while everyone else should just "rattle your jewelry". At the end of "Twist and Shout", Ringo came down from his drum kit and joined the others; as the curtain closed behind them, they bowed to the audience, then they bowed to the royal box, and then they ran off the stage to thunderous applause. The show was taped for later broadcast on both television and radio. Their entire performance was broadcast on television, by ATV, on November 10. BBC radio broadcast all but "She Loves You", also on November 10. The Beatles were a sensation all across Britain, the Royal Command Performance being a huge triumph for them. The Beatles were the entertainment kings in the UK; soon they would be ready to tackle America and the rest of the world. Three of the performances ("She Loves You", "Till There Was You", and "Twist and Shout") are included on "The Beatles Anthology 1" (Disc 2, Tracks 1-3).

Wednesday, November 4, 1964: UK release of Beatles EP "Extracts from the Film A Hard Day's Night" (Parlophone). Songs: "I Should Have Known Better", "If I Fell", "Tell Me Why" and "And I Love Her". Highest chart position: #1.

Wednesday, November 4, 1964: The Beatles, on a tour of Britain, perform two shows at the Ritz Cinema, Luton, Bedfordshire.

Thursday, November 4, 1965: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). With the deadline for their next album looming large, The Beatles start working well past midnight during recording sessions, and they begin looking for previously discarded songs that can be used. One such song is "What Goes On", which The Beatles record in one take and then add vocal overdubs. Then The Beatles try recording an instrumental number, "12-Bar Original". Take one breaks down, but take two is completed, its length 6 mins 36 secs. No overdubs are recorded. George Harrison plays tone-pedal lead guitar, George Martin harmonium, John Lennon lead guitar, Paul McCartney bass, and Ringo Starr drums. "The Beatles Anthology 2" includes a 2 mins 54 secs portion of the 6 mins 36 secs take 2 of "12-Bar Original" (Disc one, Track 16).

Monday, November 6, 1967: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Three, EMI Studios, London).

Thursday, November 7, 1957: The Quarry Men perform at Wilson Hall, Garston, Liverpool.

Monday, November 7, 1960: The Beatles perform at the Kaiserkeller Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.

Tuesday, November 7, 1961: The Beatles perform a lunchtime show at the Cavern Club, Liverpool. That night they perform at the Merseyside Civil Service Club, Liverpool, after which they return to the Cavern Club for a night appearance.

Wednesday, November 7, 1962: The Beatles perform at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany.

Thursday, November 7, 1963: The Beatles hop over to Ireland during their British tour to make their only two appearances in Eire. They are interviewed upon their arrival at the airport in Dublin, the interview being broadcast that evening on the RTE television news program "In Town". With The Beatles is screenwriter Alun Owen, who has been appointed to write the screenplay for The Beatles' first (as yet untitled) motion picture. Owen spends three days with The Beatles observing their hectic, chaotic lifestyle. That night, The Beatles perform two shows at the Adelphi Cinema, Dublin, Eire.

Saturday, November 7, 1964: The Beatles, on a tour of Britain, perform two shows at the Capitol Cinema in Cardiff.

Tuesday, November 7, 1967: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio One, EMI Studios, London). Final mixing of "Blue Jay Way" and "Flying". Paul McCartney adds vocal and sound effects overdubs to both the mono and stereo mixes of "Magical Mystery Tour". This marks the completion of "Magical Mystery Tour". But The Beatles have only six songs--too few for an album and too many for an EP. The Beatles and EMI resolve the situation by deciding to issue a double-EP, with a gatefold sleeve and a 28-page booklet. This will be released in the UK on December 8, 1967. Capitol Records, however, doesn't think the double-EP format would be acceptable for the US market, so they decide to put out an album instead. The six "Magical Mystery Tour" songs will go on side one and five of the six songs from The Beatles' 1967 singles will go on side two ("I Am the Walrus", the sixth song from their singles, appears on side one of the album as a "Magical Mystery Tour" film track). Whereas the "Magical Mystery Tour" film will be a major failure for The Beatles, the vinyl releases (the UK double-EP and the US album) will be major successes. The "Magical Mystery Tour" album will not be issued in the UK until November 1976; the double-EP UK format will never be issued in the US.

Wednesday, November 8, 1961: The Beatles perform at the Cavern Club - a night show.

Thursday, November 8, 1962: The Beatles perform at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany.

Friday, November 8, 1963: The Beatles tape two interviews for Irish television. The first, recorded at a spot between Dublin and Belfast, is for Ulster Television's "Ulster News". The second, recorded at the BBC's Broadcasting House in Belfast, is for the BBC's news magazine program "Six Ten". Both are broadcast that evening.

Friday, November 8, 1963: The Beatles, their British tour extending into Ireland, perform two shows at the Ritz Cinema in Belfast.

Sunday, November 8, 1964: The Beatles, on a tour of Britain, perform at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool, their first home-town concert since December 22, 1963.

Monday, November 8, 1965: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). With time rapidly running out for the completion of "Rubber Soul" and the need to record a Christmas record for The Beatles' fan club members, George Martin deliberately records The Beatles as they rehearse George Harrison's song "Think For Yourself". Martin had hoped they would say something witty that would be suitable for the Christmas record, but it didn't turn out that way. Nonetheless, the recording is kept anyway, and it did come into use during the production of the film "Yellow Submarine", when a six-second snippet of John, Paul, and George practicing the vocal harmonies for "Think For Yourself" is used in the movie. The Beatles, at this session, work on "Think For Yourself" (originally titled "Won't Be There With You"). After rehearsal, one take is all that is required to get down the basic instrumental track, and overdubs are recorded. Around 3:00 am The Beatles record a bunch of unrehearsed material for their Christmas record, leaving it up to George Martin to make some sense of it all.

Monday, November 8, 1976: US release of Beatles single "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da/Julia" (Capitol). 6 weeks on Billboard chart; highest position #49.

Wednesday, November 8, 1989: A long-standing suit (20 years) between The Beatles and EMI/Capitol is resolved. Although details are not revealed, it is widely reported that EMI/Capitol will pay The Beatles approximately 100 million pounds sterling in back royalties. The Beatles also obtain greater control over the use of their recordings, including record cover artwork.

Wednesday, November 9, 1960: The Beatles perform at the Kaiserkeller Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.

Thursday, November 9, 1961: The Beatles perform at the Cavern Club at lunchtime. That night they appear at Litherland Town Hall, Liverpool (their final performance at that venue). This is a major day for The Beatles, although they are unaware of it at the time--in the audience at the Cavern Club show is Brian Epstein, dressed in his pin-stripe suit and seeing The Beatles for the first time. Accompanying Epstein is his assistant Alistair Taylor. Epstein will recall his first impressions in a 1964 interview: "They were fresh and they were honest, and they had:star quality. Whatever that is, they had it, or I sensed that they had it." Over the next few weeks, Epstein becomes more and more interested in possibly managing The Beatles, and he does a lot of research into just exactly what that would entail. When he speaks with the group's embittered ex-manager Allan Williams, he is told, "Brian, don't touch 'em with a fucking bargepole." Nonetheless, Epstein invites The Beatles to a meeting at his record store on December 3.

Friday, November 9, 1962: The Beatles perform at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany.

This will, in fact, occur, the first time in the UK that a record notched up sales of over one million copies in advance of its release.

Monday, November 9, 1964: The Beatles, on a tour of Britain, perform at City Hall in Sheffield.

Saturday, November 9, 1968: "Hey Jude" is the #1 single in the US for the seventh week in a row.

Thursday, November 10, 1960: The Beatles perform at the Kaiserkeller Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.

Friday, November 10, 1961: A busy night of live performances for The Beatles. They start off the evening playing the first of two sets at promoter Sam Leach's "Operation Big Beat" at the Tower Ballroom, New Brighton, which draws attendance of over 3,000. The other four groups participating are Gerry & the Pacemakers, Rory Storm & the Hurricanes, The Remo Four, and Kingsize Taylor & the Dominoes. After their first spot, The Beatles rush over to Village Hall in Knotty Ash for a live performance. Following that, they hurry back to the Tower Ballroom to perform again. On the way back to the Tower Ballroom, The Beatles race with Rory Storm and his group, the Hurricanes, who narrowly avoid crashing their automobile.

Saturday, November 10, 1962: The Beatles perform at the Star-Club, Hamburg, West Germany.

Sunday, November 10, 1963: The Beatles, touring Britain, perform for two "houses" at the Hippodrome Theatre in Birmingham. The Beatles later leave the theatre disguised as policemen.

Tuesday, November 10, 1964: The Beatles, on the last night of their British tour, perform at Colston Hall in Bristol.

Wednesday, November 10, 1965: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). The song "The Word" is recorded, from start to finish, in three takes (plus overdubs). Then, for the third time, The Beatles work on Paul's "I'm Looking Through You", laying down another new instrumental track. Overdubs will be added later.

Friday, November 10, 1967: The Beatles film three color promotional films for their new single "Hello Goodbye". Shooting takes place at the Saville Theatre in London, directed by Paul McCartney. Each of the three film clips features different costumes, backgrounds, and Beatle antics. In the first film, The Beatles wear their "Sgt. Pepper" uniforms in front of a psychedelic background. John isn't wearing his glasses and Ringo's bass drum does not have The Beatles' logo. This film clip also contains inserts of The Beatles in collarless suits (like they wore in 1963), waving at the camera inanely. Also featured in this first film are women dancers, dressed Hawaiian-style, who join The Beatles onstage for the "Maori Finale" ending. For the second promo film, The Beatles are wearing everyday clothes and the background is a pastoral scene. Ringo's bass drum has The Beatles' logo this time, and the grass-skirted dancers again come on stage during the song's finale. The third film clip features shots from the first two films, plus additional shots of The Beatles (especially John) doing the twist in front of a backdrop design of red and yellow geometric shapes. Once the promo films have been edited and completed, Neil Aspinall flies to New York to deliver them for broadcast in the US. Version one is broadcast on "The Ed Sullivan Show" on November 26 and on "Hollywood Palace" on November 27. But The Beatles run into problems with their new film clips in the UK. A Musician's Union ban on lip-sync broadcasts has been imposed, and none of the film clips can be used on British television to promote "Hello Goodbye". Videos such as the one for "Penny Lane" are acceptable, because they don't show The Beatles pretending to perform the song. But "Hello Goodbye" clearly utilizes the lip-sync format. The Beatles will try remixing "Hello Goodbye" to remove the overdubbed violas, hoping to fool the censors, but it is not very effective. In the end, the "Hello Goodbye" film clips will not be broadcast in the UK. Instead, "Hello Goodbye" will be telecast in the UK with different video accompaniment, ranging from scenes from "A Hard Day's Night" to scenes from "Magical Mystery Tour" to stock BBC footage taken from a moving train.

Monday, November 11, 1963: Release in Sweden of Beatles LP "With The Beatles" (Parlophone).

Thursday, November 11, 1965: The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). The final recording session for the "Rubber Soul" album, The Beatles working for 13 hours straight. They need three new songs. The previously-recorded "Wait" is pulled off the shelf for one of the needed songs, and after a few overdubs it is ready to go. They overdub vocals onto the previous night's rhythm track of "I'm Looking Through You". Then they record, from start to finish, Paul's "You Won't See Me" and John's "Girl", the basic tracks for both songs being completed in two takes. "Rubber Soul" is completed, and finished copies of the album are in the shops by December 3 (December 6 in the US). "Rubber Soul" is hailed as a breakthrough album for The Beatles, their lyrics more introspective than ever before, the range of instruments employed greatly expanded, and new recording techniques having been developed and utilized effectively.

Thursday, November 11, 1999: The Recording Industry Association of America names The Beatles "Band of the Century".

Sunday, November 15, 1959: Johnny and the Moondogs (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison) perform in the final round of auditions for Carroll Levis' "TV Star Search", at the Hippodrome Theatre, Ardwick, Manchester, Lancashire. Judging is done by the volume of applause garnered by each group when it is called back onto stage at the end of the night. Since the Moondogs had no money to stay overnight in Manchester, they were forced to head back to Liverpool before they were called back onto stage.

The reports showed up on American television on the nights of November 16, 19, and 21, and also on December 7. The US coverage was quite condescending, with reporter Alexander Kendrick trying to be acidly witty by saying of The Beatles, "They symbolise the 20th century non-hero, as they make non-music, wear non-haircuts and give none-mersey" (Lewisohn).

Monday, November 16, 1964: The Beatles, at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, London, record a television appearance for the BBC TV program "Top of the Pops". They lip-sync to their songs "I Feel Fine" and "She's a Woman". Broadcast on December 3.

Friday, November 23, 1962: The Beatles travel to St. James' Church Hall, London, for a ten-minute audition with BBC Television. The audition came about when a Beatles fan, David Smith of Preston, wrote to the BBC and asked that The Beatles be featured on BBC television. Assuming that Smith was The Beatles' manager, BBC wrote back to him, offering The Beatles an audition on November 6. Smith brought this letter to NEMS Enterprises, and Clive Epstein (Brian's brother) arranged for the Nov. 23 audition. Four days later, Brian Epstein received a polite "thumbs-down" letter from the BBC, and he realized that The Beatles would need to score a #1 hit before they had a real chance of making their BBC television debut. After the audition, The Beatles had to hurry home for their scheduled performance that night.

Monday, November 23, 1964: US release of Beatles single "I Feel Fine/She's a Woman" (Capitol). 11 weeks on Billboard chart; highest position #1.

Monday, November 23, 1964: The Beatles tape an appearance for the television program "Ready, Steady, Go!" They lip-sync to their songs "I Feel Fine", "She's a Woman", "Baby's in Black", and "Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey Hey". They also give an interview with host Keith Fordyce. Recorded at Wembley Studios, Wembley. Broadcast on November 27.

Tuesday, November 23, 1965: The Beatles, at Twickenham Film Studios, shoot 10 black and white promo films for 5 songs (9 of which will eventually be broadcast on television), miming to "We Can Work It Out", "Day Tripper", "Help!", "Ticket to Ride", and "I Feel Fine". Three versions of "We Can Work It Out" are filmed, all featuring John sitting at an organ, one opening with a photo of John with a sunflower over one eye, and one with The Beatles wearing their "Shea Stadium" suits. Three versions of "Day Tripper" are shot, while one version each of "Help!" and "Ticket to Ride" are filmed. Two versions of "I Feel Fine" are done. Many of the promo clips will be broadcast on "Top of the Pops" and "Thank Your Lucky Stars" in the UK, and one film each of "We Can Work It Out" and "Day Tripper" will be shown on the US television program "Hullabaloo" (January 3, 1966).

Thursday, November 23, 1967: The British television show "Top of the Pops" broadcasts The Beatles' "Hello Goodbye". However, since the UK Musician's Union had instituted a ban on lip-sync performances, the "Hello Goodbye" film promos that The Beatles had recorded at the Saville Theatre on November 10 could not be used. So "Top of the Pops" broadcasts a film clip from "A Hard Day's Night" as the song "Hello Goodbye" is played. To put it mildly, The Beatles are annoyed.

Saturday, November 23, 1968: "Hey Jude" is the #1 single in the US for the ninth week in a row. This is its last week at #1.

Monday, November 23, 1987: UK re-release of Beatles single "Hello Goodbye/I Am the Walrus" (Parlophone). 20th anniversary reissue. Released as a regular single and also as a picture disc.

Thursday, November 23, 2000: The Beatles' compilation album "1" hits number one on the music charts of 19 countries in its first week of release. Included among those countries are the UK, US, Japan, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, and Venezuela. This beats The Beatles' previous record of topping the charts in 10 countries within the first week of release of their November 1995 album "The Beatles Anthology 1". During the past week 750,000 copies of "1" were sold in Japan; 595,000 copies were sold in the US (second to the 855,500 copies of "Anthology 1" sold during its first week); and 313,000 copies were sold in the UK, making "1" the fastest-selling album of the year. This degree of success was somewhat unexpected since the album consists of a collection of The Beatles' number one singles, all originally released between 1962 and 1970. US sales were more than double initial projections; "1" becomes The Beatles' 19th album to top US charts. US sales were undoubtedly boosted by the November 17 broadcast of a television special covering The Beatles' career, "The Beatles Revolution", which was shown on ABC-TV and which attracted an estimated 8.7 million viewers. The album "1" was advertised heavily during the broadcast. The TV special, a joint production of ABC-TV and the cable channel VH1, will be re-broadcast this evening on VH1. Additional interest was generated by the opening of The Beatles' first official website, "www.thebeatles.com", on November 13 and the release of the book "The Beatles Anthology" on October 5. The surviving Beatles' reaction to the success of "1"? According to a spokesman, they are "dead chuffed".

Thursday, November 23, 2000: US cable channel VH1 re-broadcasts a 2-hour television special, "The Beatles Revolution", about the career of The Beatles and their impact upon world music and culture. Among those who were interviewed for the special and whose comments are included are Eric Idle, Keith Richards, Pete Townshend, Lenny Kravitz, Sting, and Mike Meyers. The show, a joint production between VH1 and ABC-TV, was originally broadcast by ABC on November 17. VH1 is scheduled to broadcast "The Beatles Revolution" again on November 25. Following tonight's showing is a one-hour installment in VH1's "Legend" series about John Lennon, and that is followed by a one-hour installment in VH1's "Behind the Music" series about Julian Lennon.

This day's session is devoted entirely to "Strawberry Fields Forever", a song which evokes memories from John's childhood, mixed with the mind-expanding elements of LSD. One of the most complex of all Beatles' songs, it will undergo numerous changes in the studio from this first day's recording, which ends with a completed track that is only 2 mins 34 secs long. Take 1 of "Strawberry Fields Forever" was released on "The Beatles Anthology 2" (Disc two, Track 2).
