Overview

Most people recognized that the Liverpool foursome were something special. But even the Fab Four couldn’t have anticipated that their impact would extend far beyond chart success. The Beatles were synonymous with the Swinging Sixties, defining an era in a way no other band has managed, before or since. Beatle jackets and haircuts went the way of all fashion trends, and the mass hysteria that accompanied their concert performances was consigned to the history books when the group stopped touring in 1966. But the music lives on, as fresh and vibrant as the day it received its first pressing. When other artists have faded from memory, people will still be playing Beatles songs—here, there, and everywhere.

GET IT!!! The book contains about 600 b/w pictures many never before printed. Follows tha fabs from 1963 to 1970 but also contains many pictures from the solo years as well. Some picture are just so good one does not understand why they never went to print before. It is broken into years and each picture has it's own story written beside - usually not just a sentence but a whole small 'article'. The book also contains a short diary dedicated to every year so it can be a delightful reading for anybody not just fans. Only problem is that in the sixties they used to outline some parts of the images with ink and it shows on some shots - this is however not so disturbing and shows that the pix are now really part of history. The price just speaks for itself - once again GET IT!!!

This is a great boook for those just becoming exposed to the genius of what is the Beatles lyrics and music, or those that have known it for some time.

I purchased this book for my son. I found it entertaining and informative. He loves the Beatles and their music. He found it very inspirational. He takes guitar lessons and loves the music from that era. He has read and reread the book several times!
