SOLD: THE CON­TRACT THAT LET IT ALL BE

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE BEA­TLES’ first con­tract — signed by their Jewish man­ager, Brian Ep­stein — has sold at auc­tion for £365,000.

Signed 53 years ago, shortly be­fore the group’s de­but

was re­leased, it was the only doc­u­ment ever com­pleted be­tween the Fab Four and their man­ager.

Ex­perts see it as one of the most im­por­tant doc­u­ments in mu­sic history and had ex­pected it to fetch around £500,000 at Sotheby’s in Lon­don.
