    Classic pic. To put in the “one more photo I wish there was a poster of” list.

    Ooohh… way cool that one! Thanks for putting it up.

    I always thought there was a natural, organic progression between Beatles circa ’62 ’63 ’64 & ’65. But everything was on the brink of changing forever in 1966 and I find it shows in photographs from that year. I love it.

    Beatles at their Prime…………..
    Nothing better, still kicking ass playing live.
    Nothing better then Lennon/Mc Cartney at a microphone.

  4. ALEX OF BRONX says:

    What would they be playing ?
    Paperback Writer /Rain ?
    Nowhere Man or something else from Rubber Soul ?
    Day Triiper ?

  5. Pete F. says:

    @alex… good question, here’s the setlist for that show

    I Feel Fine
    Nowhere Man
    Day Tripper
    If I Needed Someone
    I’m Down.

    If I was a betting man, I would pick Nowhere Man

    Thanks mate.

    Talk about being on top of your game.
    What a playlist.
    No one was better

    My bet is that they are playing “Day Tripper”. “Nowhere Man” has Paul and George sharing a microphone for the backup vocals. The same on “I Feel Fine” and Paul & John share one on “If I Needed Someone”. “I’m Down” would have John and George sharing a mic if John wasn’t on the keyboard.

    One more question , what guitar would George be playing @ this point,
    The Epihone or the Gibson SG ?
    Curious in Da Bronx

  11. Michael says:

    Alex, in all pix that I’ve seen from this gig, George is playing the SG.
    Don’t know if he would have changed guitars. I don’t think he even changed for “If I Needed Someone” as I’ve seen pix of him singing lead with the capo affixed. Not based on fact, just evidence.

  12. ALEX OF BRONX says:

    As always thanks. Mike you and the rest are all a wealth of info.
