While visuals of the Beatles at the height of their popularity abound, there’s very little chronicling their pre-fame days. A new volume, out now from ACC Art Books with text by music historian Tony Barrell, unlocks the archives of master photographers Derek Bayes, Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson, and Michael Ward, collecting nearly 200 rare and unseen images of the band in the years of 1963 to 1965. Ward photographed the Beatles when their fame was still confined to their home city of Liverpool. A young O’Neill shot them as newly established stars at EMI’s Abbey Road recording studio, just after they’d recorded what would become their first million-selling single, “She Loves You.” Next up was Parkinson, who photographed the band—in that same studio—at work on their second U.K. album, With the Beatles. Finally, Bayes. His candid shots of the Beatles running around the streets of Mayfair, filming their second feature film, Help!, have never before been published. Together, the images tell the story of the early days of the band, steady in its trajectory until seismic success carried it up and away. —Julia Vitale
