A link to (supposedly rare ~ but not!) Beatles photos from 1964 U.S. tour

Really quickly, here's a link to some photos taken by Curt Gunther during the Beatles 1964 tour including the one with Brian wearing a cowboy hat on his 30th birthday talking on a fancy telephone the boys gave him as a present.

Beatles 1964 Tour Photo Exhibit

I am befuddled as to why the author is claiming these are somehow "newly unearthed after 45 years" with all this blah-blah about the negatives having been stored away until now?

Perhaps it's because they're promoting the big exhibit of these pics at New York's Morrison Hotel Gallery, and want it to seem more important than it really is. The article stops short of saying "never before seen" ~ perhaps because they know all big Beatle fans have seen every one of these for many years, and might just call them on that claim! I know the members of beatlepics have seen 'em.

Hype sells to the ignorant, I guess. *shrugs*

But the pics are nice.
