BIG BEAT was a classic 1960’s music magazine with a very small circulation. The fact that any remain is a small miracle! This is issue number 8, from 1964. This is an ultra rare ADVANCE ROUGH COPY ONLY stamped lightly on the cover, for press use in advance of publication. Very special and even rarer than standard editions. Often these would have entirely different content as features were sometimes changed after feedback from the editor and / or advertisers! There is a great 2 page Rolling Stones feature inside about their debut LP and it includes an interview with Andrew Loog Oldham, still only 20, about recording with The Stones. Classic with photographs of the band recording too. 1 extra Stones page of them in a full colour poster performing on TV. 4 pages of The Beatles including a full page colour image of Ringo having a drink and a cigarette backstage. One of the pages shows a Timex watch ad for’Timex at the Cavern’! 3 page ELVIS PRESLEY Hollywood exclusive with Yvonne Craig & Elvis.
