/MUSEWIRE – Music News/ — Music collectors take note. Fifty-seven years ago, on February 9, 1964, The Beatles made history with their first live American television appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” It had one of the largest viewing audiences ever, changed the course of music and influenced generations to follow. Today, Rockaway Records is proud to present a rare, one-of-a-kind artifact from that historic debut – a fully-signed piece of that stage’s backdrop.
Each Beatle penned his autograph on the back of the wall, accompanied by a playful caricature that each drew next to their signature.
“We’re thrilled to offer this museum-worthy piece of music history,” Wayne Johnson, co-owner of Rockaway Records, says. “In over 40 years in business, this is the most exciting item to cross our path. Music was truly changed forever that day, making this one of the most important pieces of Rock and Roll history.”
