Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rock journalist Giuliano's (Blackbird: The Life and Times of Paul McCartney) fifth book about the Beatles compiles a series of interviews, spanning 30 years and conducted by Giuliano and others, in which the band members, as well as various colleagues, family members and friends, discuss the group's origins, the reasons for its tremendous success, its breakup, its cultural legacy and the controversies surrounding it. The result is an interesting and complex if somewhat inconclusive portrait. But the book lacks narrative coherence; although roughly chronological, the author's organization of his material often creates abrupt juxtapositions of theme and perspective, and readers not aleady familiar with the band's history aren't provided the necessary background. Although Giuliano intended these interviews to speak for themselves, some editorial commentary would have been helpful. (Dec.)
Library Journal
While Beatle-ographer Giuliano's past works (including Blackbird: The Life and Times of Paul McCartney, LJ 10/1/91, and Dark Horse: The Private Life of George Harrison, LJ 5/1/90) have fallen victim to the author's biases, this hodgepodge of interview and press-release transcripts is largely free of prejudice. Included are transcripts from early Beatle press conferences (in which often-recounted quotes are presented in their larger contexts), individual Beatle interviews from the late 1960s through 1991, and conversations with various Beatle associates, some close (George Martin, Yoko Ono), some peripheral (Jo Jo Laine, Jackie Lomax). The obscure interviews will be of interest mainly to hardcore Beatlemaniacs; casual fans may be better served by Barry Miles's Beatles in Their Own Words (Quick Fox, 1978). Still, this offers a compelling overview of various perspectives on the group and its continuing mystique. Recommended for most popular music collections.-Lloyd Jansen, Stockton-San Joaquin Cty. P.L., Cal.
Gordon Flagg
Although the original Beatles drummer "is" represented in it--a pre-Beatles band mate of John, Paul, and George, too--this isn't a collection of interviews with Pete Best and other lost Beatles. Instead, it's a motley of barrel-bottom scrapings: transcripts of Fab Four press conferences, news clippings, latter-day interviews with individual Beatles, and conversations with the group's inner circle (Yoko Ono, producer George Martin, etc.) and families (e.g., John's sister and his aunt Mimi, who raised him) as well as figures on Beatledom's periphery (Donovan, Ravi Shankar, etc.). Giuliano, who's written four previous Beatles books, couldn't resist going to the well one more time, perhaps to cash in on an upcoming, 10-part TV documentary on the group. Remarkably, he has drawn up plenty of nuggets for the Beatlemaniacs, ranging from backstage trivia to gossip and ax-grindings relayed by the likes of Lennon "concubine" May Pang and a former groupie married to one of McCartney's Wings band mates. Expect demand for this hodgepodge to correspond roughly to that for Giuliano's Beatle bios.
