Beatles Crew Tour Jacket 1965                          
Stunning original purple satin jacket worn by the Beatles entourage on their triumphal 1965 American tour is today worth much more than its weight in gold. Indeed, as with anything else touched by Fab Four history, whether worn, played, signed, regurgitated or sat on, the jacket carries considerable influence, as it would set the trend for the essential haute couture in roadie wear, though its simplicity is a stark contrast from the studded, star-spangled, logo and ad-covered jackets seen on roadies and other assorted hangers-on at rock concerts over the last three decades. No lips, tongues or Coca-Cola patches on this beauty. The only departure from the deep purple (good name for a rock band, isn't it?) motif are the profound words "Beatles 1965 American Tour" stitched meticulously in white satin lettering on the back. Neck, cuffs and waistband are cloth. Best of all, the jacket is in great condition, with no pilling or tears anywhere and with only traces of minor water staining and minimal fading. No size or other labels in the neck, but it appears to be around a size-40, medium-to-large. Not surprisingly, a jacket exactly like this is listed among the top ten memorabilia items on display at the Hard Rock Cafe. Beatles collectors with a faint hope of finding one for their own display cases might well describe it as a priceless artifact from what was at the time called the "North American Tour", which coincided with the group's 2nd Ed Sullivan Show appearance on August 15 and kicked off that day at Shea Stadium, running only through August 31 with other dates in Toronto, Altlanta, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, San Diego, LA, and San Francisco    
     
     
John Lennon 'Sgt Pepper' Jacket                          
This Sgt. Pepper's jacket was made for John Lennon to be worn at a 1967 world premiere Sgt. Pepper's party. The bright green long silky jacket with red trim and white flower epaulettes on the right shoulder is a reproduction of the actual jacket that Lennon wore on the cover of the Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album. The jacket is in overall very good condition, with some wear and some light staining on the front at the waist and below, and on the upper back. The epaulette for the left shoulder is missing and the "belt" in the back needs to be stitched back onto the jacket on one side. All of the original buttons and button hooks are intact as well as the "medals" on the left breast and the blue "Coat of Arms" patch on the left arm (the one on the right arm is missing)

John Lennon's Cap                          
John Lennon's Cap from 1963. On November 4, 1963, the Beatles played a Royal Command performance in London for the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret. The group was number seven on a 19-act bill, but were definitely the main event. During the rehearsals in the days leading up to the show, members of the Beatles became friends with many of the other performers, including American singer and pianist Buddy Greco -- so much so that when Greco presented George Harrison and John Lennon with a copy of his most recent recording, Harrison returned the gesture with an autograph and Lennon by giving away his cap. This black wool seaman's cap has the initials "J.L." written on the lining in black ink, and was carefully stored and preserved by Greco for decades before being sold at auction.

Mellotron 'Strawberry Fields'                          
To touch the same keys as the great John Lennon once did is to be closer to the musical genius and phenomena that was the Beatles. This sacred piece of memorabilia was used in the studio recording of the quintessential Mellotron song, "Strawberry Fields" (November, 1966). With that, the Beatles revolutionized the classic Mellotron flute sound and further defined an era of rock and roll. A wondrous instrument in and of itself, a sample replay machine which creates the most unique sounds in all of music. This proved highly effective for the Beatles extended phase of psychedelia. To make it even more desirable, there is still a recording on the Mellotron from their song, "Bungalow Bill" which featured an awesome Spanish guitar riff. The Mellotron was actually in John's home studio in Weybridge, where John and Yoko would later collaborate on the Two Virgins LP, sold for 65,000 dollars in 2003

Vox Organ Shea Stadium 1965                          
Sold at Christies Auction House in November 2008 it fetched 182,000 dollars, This Vox Continental Portable Organ used by John Lennon at the historic August 15, 1965, Shea Stadium concert, as well as the Beatles' August 13, 1965 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and on the studio recording of I'm Down. The organ features a four octave keyboard, wood weighted black and white keys (reversed), detachable Z-shaped chrome frame stand, orange top and accompanying cases. In front of a crowd of 55,000 plus, Lennon closed out the most famous concert in history with a frenzied rendition of I'm Down, in which he wildly pounded on the offered keyboard, resulting in the organ not working properly for the next show in Toronto on August 17. The next day in Atlanta, the organ was traded in for functioning Vox Continental organ from the Thomas Organ Center - The Vox Shoppe, the exchange being completed by a local Atlanta policeman. The organ remained in the possession of the owner of The Vox Shoppe for nearly four decades. The organ itself is distinguished by a non-standard Vox Continental logo adhered to the front of the case, which is clearly visible in pictures and film from the event and from the set of The Ed Sullivan Show two days prior. The organ has been recently repaired keeping all the original parts (which were in pristine condition) and is now fully functiona
