    Wonderfully Indepth and Masterfully Researched

    I happened along a hardcover version of The Beatles Solo on Apple. Bought it on the spot. When I found out that Mr. Spizer had written not one but two books I ordered the book you see before you now. I learned things about the Beatles recordings of singles and albums I didn't know before. Which for me, a huge Beatles fan{know-it-all some would say} was enlightening. For example there are a dozen pages in the book that flesh out everything you'd want to know about the numbers stamped on the front cover of the "White Album". Research that helps one determine where your copy was likely pressed and when. Whether it is a first pressing or not. Those few pages alone are worth the price of this coffee table quality book to me. Then you learn that "Her Majesty" the little throwaway track at the end of side two of the "Abbey Road" album actually was supposed to fit between John's two compositions {Mean Mr. Mustard and Polythene Pam} originally. Or take the newer version of the Yellow Submarine Songbook released 1999. If you read and go back and listen to the CD again you'll find that the songs are remastered ten years before the 2009 remasters, and for me are as good if not better than the 2009 versions. The vocals are clearer and placed to the front of the mix. If you see a copy of this book somewhere grab it up. They are out of stock as of present on this website.

    Mr. Spizer has another winner!

    The Beatles' records on their own Apple label are some of their best recordings. In particular, I was tremendously impressed with a review of 'The White Album', which is the very best Beatles album of all time! There are also great reviews on 'Abbey Road', 'Let It Be', 'Yellow Submarine', and even 'The Beatles 1'. All in all, it does not get any better than this one. Bruce Spizer continues to do a remarkable job.
