Rare, vintage classic rock & roll music teen magazine with The Beatles from the 60's.
This is the Spring, 1967 edition of the great Datebook Magazine.
What is in this Datebook?
An article written by the wonderful Derek Taylor called "Beach Boys VS Beatles". Derek was very close to both groups and writes a great piece underscoring the appreciation and influence each group has for the other. Includes quotes from members of each group, including Brian Wilson talking about the upcoming 'Smile' album. A terrific feature.
"Limo To Weybridge and Esher" - another fantastic piece. 4 pages all about 2 Beatles fans who visited the Beatles' homes, including their personal photos. Do they meet any Beatles? Why, of course!! Truly exclusive photos and feature.
"In His Own Words - George On Religion" - 2 pages with George talking about his favorite subject. Really great stuff.
"The Beatles Are Not Splitting" - more photos and coverage of the group's pre-Pepper activity, written in that strange period when they had virtually disappeared from the world stage and engendered all kinds of puzzlement and speculation.
The great Ian Stewart, Rolling Stones road manager and phantom keyboardist, writes about the controversies surrounding the group. Terrific Stones feature!
Paul Revere and The Raiders on the Road - 8 pages of exclusive photos, including one of a shirtless Mark Lindsay. Also, a separate Lindsay article , 4 pages, with full page black and white pinup
The Monkees - lots of Monkees stuff here!
"Teens Interview The Stars" - The Dave Clark Five, Mitch Ryder, The Cyrkle, Ravi Shankar, and The Mamas and The Papas.

Datebook was a great publication and with its extensive Beatles coverage, articles on the top pop artists of the day, fashion features, news and gossip and period advertisements, it’s like getting in a time machine and going back to the greatest era ever for pop music. Treat yourself to this tremendous magazine. You will not be disappointed!
