Editorial Reviews

Malcolm Abram
Fan recollections and personal interactions with the Beatles. Gives a good sense of the excitement and unbridled hysteria the band of longhaired liverpudians fueled in teens, and the confusion and apprehension toward the establishment that would soon turn to fear and hippie dread. The backstage moments offer insights on the band being in the eye of a huge storm they didn't fully understand, and how their marketed personalities, (the Quiet One, the Cute One, etc.), were not too far off the mark.
Thomas Mulready
Dave Schwensen has put together not only a memory-filled tale of the two Cleveland Beatles concerts in 1964 & 1966, he has created the most microscopically detailed account of any period in Beatles history.
Jeff Robinson
The meat of the book comes from Schwensen's research. He spent three years interviewing those who interacted with the group during its trips to Cleveland, and his sleuthing helped him dig up vivid details. This book likely will impress even die-hard Beatles fans, who are sure to learn a few more details about what the author calls "the most influential group in the history of popular music." But it's a fun read for Beatle novices too.
Joan Rubenking
An accessible, fast paced read. We hear the first hand memories of the people who were there and their voices are evocative of the time and will pull a reader directly into the full force of Beatlemania. Goes behind the scenes and lets us into the trailer at Cleveland Stadium where the group prepared for the show and then fled to when overzealous fans trampled the flimsy snow fence barrier and stormed the stage. The immediacy brings the era fully to life and recaptures musical history being made
