STARTING OVER is a fine, fine book with all sorts of new information and is a fabulous read. Beatles fans have so many book choices, and there's so much repetition throughout the many tomes that keep coming out (I'm thinking of FAB, the new McCartney bio; or last year's John Lennon tome, for instance), that it's really something when a new book appears that is, in fact, full of new information and insight. STARTING OVER is such a book. It's a first-hand account of the DOUBLE FANTASY sessions as told by the participants. Yeah, it's all upbeat and not a bad word is cast, but the reader really gets a sense of what happened. It's absolutely essential for any John Lennon or Beatles aficionado ... and there are less and less new books about those subjects that can make that claim after all this time. And like I said at the top of this post, it's a great read, too.

With a little help from his friends, Ken Sharp digs deep into a treasure trove of never-before-seen or heard stories, images and firsthand accounts of Lennon's final recording sessions. This totally enjoyable read immerses you in the recording studio, alongside one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th Century. Full of humor, behind-the-scenes anecdotes and poignant memories, this book also offers great insights on the inner workings of the recording industry. More than two thumbs up!!

This book is filled with fun and engaging memories from the production crew and musicians fortunate enough to have played on John Lennon's last recorded album. Although remembered through the rosy recollection of people that once worked with a much loved and missed musical icon, the book is nonetheless a great read.
