Small, but nonetheless fun, the exhibit focuses on the band's early years, directly before and after they became famous and performed in the U.S. There's a short video of several women who saw the Beatles live on the Ed Sullivan Show, plus interviews with a handful of men who helped produce the show. Seeing the Beatles in-person and working with them, that unforgettable night on Sullivan, remains an obvious high point of all their lives.
There's also lots of memorabilia from the Beatles' heydays—posters, a lunchbox, and even candy bars—some of which I remember, but some I'd never seen. The exhibit is a nice overview for non-fans, who may not know all that much about early Beatlemania. Still, even old veterans, like Tim and me, learned at least a couple of new things.
I wouldn't fly into L.A. just to see the exhibit. But if you already live here, there's no excuse, especially if you've never been to the Grammy Museum. Recommended!
