On August 18th 1964, one week after A Hard Day's Night hit theatres, The Beatles left London for their first full tour of the USA and Canada. Beatlemania had touched down in America, and the Fab Four were in for a frantic ride.

Although Brian Epstein wanted no photographers to accompany The Beatles, Derek Taylor persuaded him to let Curt Gunther join the touring party, granting him unprecedented access to the band.

In MANIA DAYS, Gunther's photographs and text from Derek Taylor come together, giving an intimate insiders view into the beginnings of Beatlemania.

'Mania Days is a gift of a Beatles book. Its contents are as gilt-edged as its gold-leafed pages. It's something to treat yourself to and to treasure.' - Record Collector

To celebrate 50 years of The Beatles in the USA, Genesis have created a special anniversary solander box.
