The Beatles! A One-Night Stand in the Heartland brings together strands from many remarkable stories. First, there is the story of the Beatles themselves as phenomenal artists who changed music and culture forever. Second, Bill Carlson tells his own impressive story of how he interacted with the Beatles on that one day. And third, the 25,000 or more screaming, shouting, cheering, swooning, clapping, crying, and singing Minnesotans who were transformed by what they experienced that day.
His images show the public faces of the Beatles at their press conference at the stadium as they expertly pose and trade quips with reporters. They show the fans, who look so young, hardly even teenagers, putting Minnesota youth on the same footing as those in London and New York. They also show the more familiar scenes of Beatlemania, and his long shots of the concert stage recall that security was so strict that even photographers were banned from the field.
There are other books by Beatles photographers. But there is no other book like this that documents one day, one concert, one place. It was a day that brought high fun and high art to the Twin Cities and changed many Beatles fans forever.

This is a fantastic book, especially if you were one of the thousands who saw the Beatles at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minnesota in 1965. As a 13 year old huge fan of the Beatles, the show was very memorable. But over the years I had forgotten some of the details - this book brought it all back to me.Was this review helpful?
