The Beatles

Are you a fan of the Beatles? My connection with the Fab Four goes back to the 1960s, as two of my sisters went to see them in Manchester, so our house was regularly filled with their music. Nowadays it seems that lots of people have rekindled their interest in the Betales, often from a purely collecting perspective, I'm quite sure that most Beatles records are now bought for investment and few are ever place on a turntable.

 

We always some some Beatles items for sale, so it makes sense to feature them here, along with some great LPs that we have accumulated over the last couple of years.
