The day The Beatles conquered America

On Saturday April 4, 1964 The Beatles made history in America, occupying the top five positions of the US singles chart. 'Can't Be Me Love', 'Twist And Shout', 'I Want To Hold Your Hand', 'She Loves You' and 'Please Please Me' saw off all competition. This shot is from a new book, 'Mania Days', which documents that crazy period. Photo: 'Mania Days' is available from Genesis Publications/
