The Beatles: Day-by-Day, Song-by-Song, Record-by-Record contains all you need to know about the world’s greatest band in a single volume. The day-by-day diary covers their entire career from the Quarrymen days in ’57 right up to their eventual break-up in April 1970. Learn fascinating facts about the music industry and the Beatles’ private lives.
The song-by-song section tells you the story behind every song they ever made—with full recording history and session details. And the record-by-record section covers every single, EP, and album released in Britain and the United States—including their Christmas fan-club discs!
The book also contains five useful appendices covering everything from chart records and awards to tour dates. With its meticulous research and easy-to-understand approach, this is the only Beatles book that you’ll ever need.
A nearly exhaustive chronicle of the Fab Four. Ostensibly the "only Beatles book that you'll ever need,” Mercifully, however, only the first third is devoted to a diary of daily events; the remainder is an alphabetized song list and chronological discography. Cross's hip, lively narrative—"August 7, 1957: The Quarrymen's debut at the Cavern Club. Paul couldn't make it because he was away at scout camp (not very rock 'n' roll!)..." As for the beginning of the end, signs of strain began well before 1970— Yoko Ono's conquest of Lennon, McCartney's bossiness, Lennon's heroin addiction, business conflicts with manager Allen Klein—but Cross wisely refrains from passing judgment on the definitive cause of the breakup. Not the only Beatles book you'll ever need, but entertaining nonetheless.-Kirkus Discoveries
