Posted over at Bootlegzone, dated as 5th August 1961 and from ‘Tune In’. The first known picture of Ringo with another Beatle.

Is it just me or did Ringo look older before he was a Beatle?

No question. The bangs of the moptop hair definitely made him look younger. He also had that streak of gray hair that was covered up soon after he joined.

The Beatles; All These Years, Volume 1

“Tune In”

by Mark Lewisohn

Year 4, 1961: The Rock Years

Chapter 19, “Piedels on Prellies” (April-June 1961)

…(paraphrasing) Astrid Kirchher shot some superlative photos of the Beatles in 1960, but not in 1961.  Jürgen Vollmer made up for it.

Early in the sceond visit, he asked George to go out with him for a few hours for a solo (photo) session…

…his bandmates’ envy over missing out quickly dissapated when Jürgen suggested a group photo session in the Top Ten.

…here the, is the definitive leather-jacket Lennon at 20, leaning into the brick of a Hamburg doorway.  His old Woolton gang and Quarry Bank pals are home in England, studying hard and hoping to pass, slipping into careers, getting married, settling down… but he’s out and about, causing a bit of havoc, drinking and getting pilled, upsetting people, singing for his supper, having a laff and a shout with the lads…

“I made him stand still, then I got the other three (Paul, George and Stu) to pass by.”

~ Jürgen Vollmer

There’s a few more pics at this photobucket page.

Posted at beatlesource, heads-up from wogblog. Quite possibly the only picture with Ringo, Pete, John, Paul and George. Details of the photo are that its thought to be at the Liverpool Tower Ballroom on the 8th December 1961.

Note: Interesting that the spelling of Beatles is incorrect on the poster to the right hand side of Paul, its the double “ee”.

And right below that, it says Rory Storm.  I think they appeared together on 3 dates in December (1st, 8th and 26).

At first, I thought those first 2 were of a-couple-of-decades-older Paul.

Paul looks adorable. It’s a fantastic photo. I wonder what he is holding in his right hand.
