EMI Studios canteen: 24th June, 1967.

On June 24, 1967 (a Saturday, fact fans), ver lads assembled before the equally assembled press in order to proclaim the "message" du jour, via the medium of...errr...sandwich board: Love Is You Need (errr..someone clearly hasn't thought this through).
Thus manfully boarded did they strut, both in studio 1, where preparations for the following day's Our World broadcast continued apace, and just outside.
A Beatle eye view of the grunters:

At some point, they de-sandwiched and headed downstairs to the canteen; here are 3 lesser seen photos (lesser seen by me, at any rate):

Hard evidence of tea drinking:
This, possibly, the high water mark of their cultural reach and group gestalt (not the tea drinking in the canteen, but Our World), just post-Pepper, Brian still alive, and the four seeming very together, for the time being, at least:
To change the subject, the new Blogger interface is bloody awful. Anyone know how to get the old one back (or even how to manage the new one)?


  1. Great pictures. So true that they were at this point still very much a group, the "four-headed monster" that Jagger spoke about. Two months later Brian was dead, and things were never the same again.

  2. it's too bad that there is nothing from this day on film. maybe some fab fan out there knows of some film footage.

  3. they didn't use to come to the studios on weekends, so my friend and i had the brilliant idea of going to a double feature of a hard day's night and help and missed seeing them! but some of our friends did, and got great photos.

  4. I do notice this particular style of chair being clearly evident at EMI, both in the studio and in the canteen, and that they were all red as well, so I was wondering if any of these chairs still exist at the studios??? Just curious. Beatle chairs...
