Brian's Original Signed Autograph
on his "A Cellarful Of Noise"
Seller says: "This book was given to my mum by Brian Epstein
as she worked with his brother in Liverpool and is completely original."

What backbreaking working hours
our young master Brian endured!
Holding the boys who, to his family's
initial despair, ended his oh-so-promising
career as ...errmmm... a record salesman!?

And now, all we've got left is the
NEMS "wall of records" exhibit at
The Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool.
Wow. How did this simple eBay auction spawn such a melange of NEMS trivia?
Fer Pete's sake! I obsessively labored over 4 hours on this post.
Oh yeah, the seller's mum worked for the Epsteins. With Clive. Lucky mum.
I'd love to meet the lady ~ she was some anonymous clerk, most likely. Probably couldn't give me much insight, other than a general idea of how it felt to work for the Epsteins. A few simple stories would be nice, though. I'd eat up that info :)
Speaking of eating up, Dale's due to be home from cleaning the church, and we're going somewhere.
