august 1965


In August ‘65, the Beatles were having their last fling as a top shelf live band. 
They had uncorked fine sets on both The Ed Sullivan Show,
in their last appearance there, and on Blackpool Night Out

The end of the month would find them tearing it up at the Hollywood Bowl,
and on their best musical behavior, more or less, on account of
George Martin hoping to get a releasable performance from the gig.
