Frank Comments was a magazine published by Frank Hessys Ltd. Hessy's was one of the music shops close to Mathew Street where members of various local bands including The Beatles bought their equipment.
Three copies of this magazine are for sale in our auction in August. They feature covers illustrated by Bill Harry. He also wrote articles and poems for the magazine. This is before he went on to launch the famous Mersey Beat magazine which documented the local group scene in the 1960s.
Each magazine features adverts for The Cavern Club which was a Jazz club back then.
This lot of three magazines carries an estimate of £50-£60.

Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you
