The definitive book on the solo recordings of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, two of popular music's greatest writers and performers. The story is told chronologically, starting with their first work outside The Beatles: McCartney's soundtrack for The Family Way and Lennon's Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins with Yoko Ono. The book details Lennon and McCartney's creative highs and lows in an authoritative, complete, and engagingly critical fashion. Information for collectors includes release dates, catalogue numbers, composer credits, recording personnel, recording studio, and producer credits, and there is a keyed index to help trace each song and the albums it appears on. Blaney's perceptive style makes this a fascinating read as well as a work of reference, and the book includes illuminating archive quotes from Lennon, McCartney, and others. Together Alone tells the stories behind the songs of two giants of modern music.
