Description by OLDIES.com:

The Beatles: It's impossible to overestimate the influence of this four-man band of humble beginnings on both the music and culture of the 20th Century. They were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century-and this, accomplished within only the decade that the band existed!

The Beatles! A One-Night Stand adds a new chapter to the Beatle's story. In this unique look into the early culture of the band, photographer Bill Carlson brings to Beatles fans, photography aficionados, and history buffs more than 100 never-before-published photographs that document one day in the life of the Beatles on tour.

As a high-school student and aspiring photographer, Carlson apprenticed in the studio of renowned photographer Merle Morris in Minneapolis, Minnesota. When the press passes came for the Beatles concert in Minneapolis, Carlson grabbed one, picked up his Hasselblad and Nikon cameras, and headed out to Metropolitan Stadium. He went not so much as a Beatles fan-though he came to love them later-but as a photography-hungry youth determined to seize every opportunity to learn and perfect his art.

The Beatles! A One-Night Stand brings together strands from several remarkable stories. First, there is the story of John, Paul, George, and Ringo themselves, who in 1965 were at the height of their popularity. Second, Carlson tells his own story of how he interacted with the Beatles that day. And third, Carlson's photos document the 25,000 or more screaming, shouting, cheering, swooning, clapping, crying, and singing Minnesotans who were transformed by what they experienced that day?even though most of them probably couldn't hear a single note.
