The video here is THE BEATLES featuring Jimmy Nicol on drums performing live in Blokker, the Netherlands on Saturday 6th June 1964.
I’ve upscaled and colourised the film.
“Prior to performing two concerts in the village of Blokker in the Netherlands – their only two shows on Dutch soil – The Beatles and Jimmie Nicol toured the canals of Amsterdam in a glass-topped tourist boat,” states The Beatles Bible.
“50,000 people turned out to see them in Amsterdam, and police leave was cancelled so all 15,000 officers were on duty. Some fans dived into the canals to try to reach the group, but were quickly dealt with by police.”
Hello, and a warm welcome to everyone who has joined COLOURING THE PAST.
The page is my attempt to add a little colour to the cheeks of the past. It’s not intended to offer anything ‘better’ than the original black & white footage; just a different take.
Running the page is a one-man operation. I write and research the articles, and edit the videos which involves several hours of work – upscaling, colourising and tweaking in various software.
This takes about half a day of unpaid work. If you could see fit to make a small donation then I would be genuinely grateful.
Thank you and best wishes, Paul 🙂
