  1. As I understand the story, Brian Epstein’s folks owned a music shop, and customers kept coming to their store seeking an album from a small band that they knew little about. Growing increasingly curious, Epstein and another employee, Alistair Taylor, decided to catch a performance by The Beatles during their lunch break on the afternoon of November 9, 1961 at the Cavern Club in Liverpool. Epstein initially thought their performance was a little rough, but he had the four-sight to sign them anyway!

    We’ve seen all of the clue words before, but three of today’s anagrams are coming up as new. A couple of extra glances to solve TIRADE was all that David would get out of me! My biggest surprise was noticing that all of the solved words were arranged in alphabetical order.

    Our cartoon brings us to the Cavern Club and perfectly captures the moment when Epstein and Taylor first set eyes on the up-and-coming band. On the stage, and from left to right are George, Paul, Pete and John. In front of them are 13 folks enjoying the performance. My favorite detail was definitely the brick arches. From what I’ve read online, the arches messed with the acoustics and The Beatles weren’t fans of them either.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 9-letters. It had three vowels and six consonants. Having solved numerous Beatles-themed Jumbles in the past, I had an inkling that FOUR would be somewhere in the answer. With those letters crossed out, SIGHT was a breeze to decipher for the finish.

    I decided to skip the 10 Fun Facts this morning and created a Beatles quiz instead. Let me know if it’s something you’d like to see more of. Have a terrific Thursday, and keep Jumbling!

  2. Good morning. I was able to get both words and cartoon answer without much trouble. Knowing the answer was in quotation marks made it a little easier to come up with the solution. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  3. Another quickie before breakfast. Now a host of Beatles songs are swimming about in my head.

  4. Well maybe he had SOUR FIGHT or FISH GROUT, or maybe FITS ROUGH; he had fits that were rough, but he still had FOUR SIGHT.

    • FISH GROUT sounds awfully bizarre! And I’m sure the fact that the final solve was only nine letters limited your findings. 🙂

  5. I was a big Elvis fan so resented the Beetles invasion on the then Ed Sullivan show.Anagrams were a snap,and given the obvious ‘four’ being part of the cartoon solution,four sight was also a quick solve.

  6. The whole Beatles vs Stones thing was entertaining also. Not many problems with this one. Loved the quiz, Mike, let’s do more of those! I was working as an usher at the Hollywood Bowl for the three Beatles performances there during the first American concert tour. Wow!

  7. Paused at tirade but other than that everything fell into place nicely including the cartoon solution. Like Chuck, I was a huge Elvis fan. One of my cousins was an absolutely crazed Beatles fan. The highlight of her teenage life was seeing the Beatles at Candlestick Park the first time they came to San Francisco. Great quiz, Mike, I’ll be humming some of those Beatles tunes all days.

  8. Good Afternoon Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🎸🙋🏻‍♀️

    🥁 You gotta wonder how he felt, I mean it’s only HUMAN,
    He could have been that number 4…one of the famous crewman
    ‘Twas GRAFT at the beginning, still MOSTLY they had fun,
    And as their hit song later said…Ah, now “Here Comes The Sun”…
    A TIRADE in his solitude, regret for old Pete Best?
    At Epstein’s doing he was gone…he didn’t pass the test
    But how we loved our Ringo, Paul’s suggestion turned out right…
    And history went on to prove in business, it’s “FOUR-SIGHT”..🥁

  9. Hi all – Got the words with TIRADE taking an extra look. I saw FIRST in the letters, but that left HUGO FIRST which didn’t make a lot of sense. Another look showed SIGHT, leaving the FOUR.

    Loved the quiz Mike, but I didn’t pass! 50%, missed 1,3,6,7 and 10.

    I presume that the ‘few changes’ included moving Paul to the far left and having him share a mic with George. The Beatle haircuts came later, and swapping out Pete Best for Ringo wasn’t Brian’s idea as far as I know (probably George Martin’s at the London recording sessions). If that’s really John’s Rickenbacker guitar, it’s a nice touch.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “You can go on a TIRADE about finding GRAFT where there’s money and/or power, but it’s MOSTLY HUMAN nature and will always be around.”

    • My brother and I were also huge Elvis fans, but I had no problem at all loving the Beatles as well. The Beatles themselves were also Elvis fans, but felt a bit sorry for him being so alone unlike their tight-knit group.

    • Well, you did better than me! I think my limited knowledge of the Beatles made it difficult to choose interesing questions.

      Awesome sentence as always! 🙂

      • Thanks Mike. Looking into it further, I think I’ll have to chalk up my comment about Pete Best as another question I missed! 😂

        • I didn’t do well on the Beatles quiz but enjoyed it a lot. Writing questions that are fair is not an easy task! I used to do that for med tech quizzes and found it to be hard…..

  10. 39 people have taken the quiz so far, and only 4 have passed! It’s not looking too good….. 😂

    Update/1439: 49 participants/5 passed. 3 got 80% and 2 got 90%.
    Update/1606: 61 participants/6 passed. 3 got 80% and 3 got 90%.

  11. In July 1964, I was waiting in London, England for my passage back to New York on The Aurelia, an Italian ship. I saw that The Beatles were performing, so grabbed a single ticket and heard some great music. Ann
