George Harrison visits Manhattan in September of 1963. The first Beatle to visit America and he did so very leisurely because his visit was a few months before Beatlemania would take America by storm.

"I’d been to America before, being the experienced Beatle that I was. I went to New York and St Louis in 1963, to look around, and to the countryside in Illinois, where my sister was living at the time. I went to record stores. I bought Booker T and the MGs’ first album, Green Onions, and I bought some Bobby Bland, all kind of things."
