EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS - JOHN LENNON AND THE BEATLES AT THE MIRROR OF MAN'S DESTINY, with the help of the author, will take you on a journey THEN [The Sixties], NOW, and into the TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY.
THE BEATLES have affected mankind. The total Trilogy work will expose the real story - the life and times [THEN & NOW] of THE BEATLES' legacy, and of their history - and how it is woven into the fabric of what is being reported by media, newsgroups, government, universities, internet and discussed by world citizens.
While all the other BEATLES books TALK about the parties, TALK about the drugs and TALK about the band's life backstage and on the road, Richard Warren Lipack's THE LAST CONCERTS, the first installment in THE BEATLES' TRILOGY - SHOWS IT - with no holds barred!
EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS is drawn from the single most important extant photograph collection on THE BEATLES in the world. Many of the incredible photographs in this book are reproduced for the first time ever. There are well over 150 photos alone - all BEHIND-THE-SCENES - of THE BEATLES during the last days of their live performing career - up to that moment they retired from the concert stage, in August of 1966.
It is significant to note that comprised within the monumental 367 page coffee-table book: THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY, released by THE BEATLES and APPLE in the year 2000, only a scant TWO (2) photographs are reproduced treating the period of the band's 1966 last concert. These consisted of previously published images by San Francisco lensman, the late Jim Marshall.
Within the present realm and scope of THE BEATLES own vast and mighty resources, it is absolutely amazing that so little treating the time of the band's last concert came to be gathered and reproduced in THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY - in an effort to tell this part of the story of what is obviously the epitome of their live performing career!
The Trilogy work however makes the reader witness to the odyssey of a major pivotal event in history as it ACTUALLY unfolds! This is done through the painstaking state-of-the-art digitally enhanced reproduction of action photographs arranged in sequential order according to the sequence of the negative film frames - all as they had been clicked-off by the roving camera - over the tour period. The methods employed to reproduce these images include the rare and lost art of maintaining the halftone dot in the shadow area comprised within the black and white photographs found in EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS.
As well, a special "Quadtone Process" is used to make black and white images into those of striking colors and hues. This is all in an effort to re-create for the reader's eye the vividness of like what THE BEATLES themselves saw during this historic vector-point in time - as they found themselves heading towards destiny and their last live stage show ever - while under the influence of the illicit drug L.S.D. 25.
There are some 35 out of 45 FULL COLOR images reproduced in EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS that show THE BEATLES during the period of their last concerts, while THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY only shows but one!
The text to THE LAST CONCERTS segment of EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS has been researched and executed over a span of nineteen years. And with this, no stone has been left unturned. Here for the first time, the reader and devotee of THE BEATLES can begin to understand their effect on modern society.
Two decades have now passed since EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS was first published in 1996. Today the book can be found in university libraries the world over, including in America’s Cornell University and Harvard University. EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS 1996 discussion concerning the drug use by the Beatles in the 1960’s also included an extensive history of the use of marijuana since its discovery in 1839 by Western civilization and its many benefits, together with Dr. Albert Hoffman’s synthesis of Lysergic Acid or L.S.D. in 1938 are covered in the book, which at the time in 1996, when published, was considered still a taboo topic. Today however, now twenty years later, EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS is considered a pioneer in bringing forward the truth. Now in 2017 - in the TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, marijuana has become legal medicinally in 28 states in the United States of America, including Washington, D.C. and legal on a recreational basis in eight states of the Union. L.S.D. is now being used with positive applications and results in psychiatry.
The globalist agenda and how the Beatles, as a cultural icon dovetailed into this is also revealed in EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS, and today, what has been witnessed in England with BREXIT and also in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election - all acting as a meter bringing about a rise of populism against such an agenda - all which has become widespread the world over.
In commemoration of EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS continued viable placement in the realm of publishing in an ever changing world, AUTHOR SIGNED AUTOGRAPH COPIES are available at this time.

Richard Warren Lipack has been producing and gathering definitive documentation on the band THE BEATLES since 1969. Born in 1954, author Lipack ultimately by happenstance 23 years later, stumbled upon the genesis to what has become EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS, and the beginning of THE BEATLES TRILOGY.
It is this 'genesis' that actually began in autumn of 1977, when Richard Warren Lipack came to discover the original 'last concert' 35mm half-frame negatives during one of his visits to New York City. A small No. 10 envelope containing the precious strips of film came out of a basement file cabinet at Ken Galente's SILVER SCREEN movie memorabilia shop, at the time when the store was located in uptown Manhattan on the corner of Lexington Avenue and 72nd Street.
The negatives originally came from the files of the long defunct DATEBOOK MAGAZINE (ironically the very same publication that fueled the furor behind the widespread 'BEATLES BAN' just prior to the band's 1966 tour - when it published for the first time in the US - JOHN LENNON'S statement that 'The Beatles were more popular than Jesus').
In April of 1978, the author began working with the estate of the late Beatles' manager - Brian Epstein. An initial meeting in New York City between Clive Epstein and Richard Warren Lipack took place in October of 1978. In September of 1979, the Epsteins arranged for the author to be flown to England, where he stayed with the family in Liverpool. The topic of an extensive book publishing project was discussed, with prime intentions of drawing upon the author's exhaustive document and photograph collection.
The author was guest in the home of Queenie Epstein, mother of the manager. During many a breakfast at "Beech Cottage" on Calderstones Road, Richard Warren Lipack heard Queenie Epstein talk of some of the most fascinating Beatles stories from the early days that one could ever imagine!
Richard Warren Lipack is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts, New York City. The author is a photographer, writer and international historical document, art and antiques dealer - with his latter interest embodying a specialty in the realm of technological artifacts and photographic art.Review:
