The Story Behind Every Beatles Song

This is the book that analyzes every song released by the Beatles, from Please, Please Me (1963) to The Long And Winding Road (1970). Music historians Jean-Michel Guesdon and Phillippe Margotin have compiled the fascinating—and sometimes surprising—stories surrounding the Fab Four’s music into one engaging coffee-table tome. Arranged chronologically by album, the authors document, dissect, and discuss each song, providing basic information (songwriter, track length, number of takes, etc.), a brief discussion of how it was written and recorded, and an overall assessment. Adding depth and color to the stories, the book includes enough trivia to impress even die-hard Beatlemaniacs and over 600 photographs. With a preface by Patti Smith. Hardcover. 672 pages. 11" H x 8 3/4" W x 2" D. (5 lbs.)
