An online Beatles fan club for and about Beatle fans
Unusual gold record. The label looks American but maybe it is Canadian? Anyone know what this record presentation is?(MarkZapp)
I believe this photo was taken between shows when the Beatles played Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto on September 7, 1964. The gold record would have been for either Capitol of Canada's "Beatlemania!" or "Twist and Shout" album, and Paul White was the man who signed the band to Canadian Capitol in 1963. Here is footage of that, um, press conference... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWcqgU03EUQ
Yes you are right---I spotted a photo like this in the Beatles in Canada book.
