50 Years Ago: The Beatles Release ‘With the Beatles’

‘With the Beatles’ was a hit before it was even released. By November 1963, Beatlemania was raging across the U.K..

48 Years Ago: The Beatles Finish ‘Rubber Soul’

On Nov. 11, 1965, the Beatles convened to finish recording their sixth album, 'Rubber Soul.' Entering the studio at around 6PM, they realized they were a couple songs short of the 14 tracks slotted for the new record. Believe it or not, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were having trouble writing enough material for the album. So they "tossed off" a few new songs and resurrected a cast-off from the 'Help!' sessions.

48 Years Ago: ‘The Beatles’ Animated Series Premieres

48 years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play . . .

Actually, that's not true, but it was 48 years ago -- on Sept. 25, 1965 -- that ABC first broadcast 'The Beatles,' a 30-minute Saturday morning cartoon that became an instant ratings smash for the network.
