Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Signed Beatles Albums

Someone just brought to my attention an excellent article by Steve Cyrkin about genuine and fake Beatles autographs. Using the only two known copies of real autographed Abbey Road albums, the ones from Cathy Sarver and Lizzie Bravo's (both well known "Apple Scruffs") collections as examples, Cyrkin exposes a sleuth of forged autographs on this album. Cathy Sarver's autographed Abbey Road is depicted above.
Another fascinating feature in the article, is that Cyrkin gives an estimate as to how many genuine autographed Beatles album covers he knows of. There are only about a dozen US label Beatles albums known, signed by the full band. UK ones, around 50-75 "Please Please Me" albums, 15-20 "With The Beatles" albums and around 20 later albums with real signatures! Guess they were more eager in the beginning...

Here's the article
