Its hard to imagine a music world without The Beatles. They were, arguably, the most influential band of all time, and haven written some of the best pure pop songs. There was nothing too flashy about the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, but it was new, original, and spoke to a generation in a way that it would stay with them for the rest of their lives.
To this day, The Beatles are one of the most collectable bands, continually making new fans that are in search of rare vinyl and memorabilia. You can see just a small selection of the highlights we currently have in stock below, and browse our full catalogue at eil.com.
