Mike McCartney's Early Liverpool

PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS

Mike McCartney

'The Fifties and Sixties were a time when us working-class folk all had nothing and little to no chance of getting anything. We were all equal in our nothingness but at least we could dream of escaping our poverty, of winning the pools, or being bigger than Elvis! I trust that some of these images capture that feeling.' Mike McCartney

In his eagerly awaited limited edition book, Mike McCartney's Early Liverpool, Mike McCartney is bringing together all of his finest work including a wealth of previously unseen photographs and treasured drawings. Now, from his original film negatives, Mike McCartney is selecting some of his most historic images to be made available as limited edition archival prints. Each museum-quality print is checked and signed by the photographer and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the publishers.

'Like The Beatles used to experiment with chords, lyrics and keys, I did the same with photography; I was always experimenting.' Mike McCartney

I Saw Her Standing There

Mike McCartney's Early Liverpool

'Paul said this was one of the most important photographs I had ever taken because it showed him and John exactly as they were together. They used to form ideas, write them out and then play them with the band. It shows the camaraderie, the togetherness and the professionalism of what they did.' - Mike McCartney

Paul McCartney and John Lennon writing 'I Saw Her Standing There', Forthlin Road, November 1962. An early version was played to Rory Storm on 22 October 1962. The song was completed a month later at Forthlin Road and first performed in December 1962 at the Star-Club, Hamburg.
