Default My mad day with Fab Four

My mad day with Fab Four

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

by Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liver...0252-19998672/


One of Tom Murray's 'mad day out' Beatles' photos.

See them here:
http://www.nemsworld.com/beatles/md/md.htm

A PHOTOGRAPHER who captured the Beatles’ “mad day out” on camera brings the images to Liverpool tomorrow.

Tom Murray spent a day messing around in London with the Fab Four in July 1968.

The band, who were recording the White Album, decided to stage a photo-shoot with a difference.

Murray, a Sunday Times photographer, was roped in by veteran war photographer Don McCullin, but had no idea who he was due to picture until he arrived.

He said: “We arrived at this old church which was a rehearsal studio.

“I walked in and there was Paul McCartney playing at the piano. George and Ringo were at one side drinking tea and in the other corner were John and Yoko.

"It really was a mad day rushing around London. We’d get half-an-hour, maybe 45 minutes at the most in any one place before too many people arrived.”

The 65-year-old photographed the Beatles on a small Nikon camera he still has today, but says no one paid him any attention.

Now a number of the 23 vivid colour images, which were stored unseen for three decades until 1998, are being brought to Liverpool.

While the originals are locked in a New York bank vault, people visiting Rennies art gallery in Bold Street tomorrow will have the chance to talk to Murray and buy limited edition giclée prints of eight of the originals.

I've got a couple of these signed prints - I'd recommend them as an investment as well as something good to look at.
Tom has given a lot away to charities and made hundreds of thousands for charities - unfortunately not so for himself.

Nice collection, most of them were already familiar but it's cool to know the origin.

Thanks! I really like the pics of them in the flowers and the one in black and white with John's head on the ground.
