Indispensible to Collectors of Beatle Recordings
This is the best, and in fact, only, resource for collecting Beatles' recordings, official and unofficial. Sulpy painstakingly organizes authorized releases, alternate takes, different mixes and live recordings of Beatles's performances. The book serves as a comprehensive and annotated checklist for the serious collector. The only reason that I did not rate it with 5 stars is that it is already a bit out of date! A new edition is necessary given recent authorized releases specifically mixed with CDs in mind, newly discovered Get Back session recordings and mixes, upgraded White Album demos, etc. Improvements suggested for the next edition include: (1) supply recommended second best sources for entries; (2) re-instate pre-break-up home recordings that were relegated to a Beatles solo recording guide; and (3) direct readers to CD sources, not just original vinyl sources, for alternate mixes. None of this should detract from the tremendous accomplishment that this book represents even in its present form!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
