1961 - The Beatles perform a lunchtime show at the Cavern Club, Liverpool. That night they appear at Village Hall in Knotty Ash, Liverpool.
1962 - The Beatles perform at the Majestic Ballroom, Witham, Hull, Yorkshire.
1963 - The Beatles tape an appearance for the ABC Television program "Thank Your Lucky Stars". They perform lip-sync to their songs "All My Loving", "Money", and "She Loves You". Since "With the Beatles" would not be released until almost four weeks after this show's broadcast (on October 26), the first two songs had not been previously heard by fans. Recorded at Alpha Television Studios, Birmingham.
1964 - The Beatles, on a tour of Britain, perform two shows at Caird Hall in Dundee.
1965 - The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). Recording a second song for their next single, "We Can Work It Out". Getting the basic track down in just two takes, the rest of the session is spent recording overdubs, including the distinctive harmonium part played by John Lennon. A few more overdubs will be added on Oct. 29, but the song is essentially finished by the end of this session.
1967 - The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Three, EMI Studios, London). Recording three flute parts for "The Fool on the Hill". Then two viola players record the string arrangement for "Hello Goodbye".

1969 - US release of John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band single "Cold Turkey/Don't Worry Kyoko" (Apple). The flip side is a Yoko Ono song. Paul McCartney having refused to play on "Cold Turkey", Lennon did not give him songwriting credit -- a first. 12 weeks on Billboard chart; highest position #30.
