The Complete Beatles Chronicle

by Mark Lewisohn

Picture of the book Notes from the inner flaps:
"Easily the single most authoritative document about the world-famous group ever published, The Complete Beatles Chronicle is the culmination of years of painstaking research in film, TV, radio, newspaper, record-company and recording-studio archives, and the product of hundreds of interviews with those who knew and worked with the Beatles. This book reconstructs each day of their career, encompassing every stage and radio appearance, all their film, video, TV, and radio work, and, of course, every recording session. It details how the Beatles matured, shedding the mop-top image of the Fab Four. They experimented with Eastern philosophy and drugs, and as their own lives changes, so did their music, from somewhat simplistic songs like "Love Me Do " to the LSD-influenced "Strawberry Fields Forever." By 1969 the Beatles could no longer contain its four members' ideas and compositions, so it came as no surprise when John and Yoko formed the Plastic Ono Band. And on April 10, 1970, when Paul openly stated his desire to split from John, George and Ringo, the Beatles was a band no more.

The Complete Beatles Chronicle is the first book to tell the whole story of the Beatles' working lives, from their very first tentative performances in Liverpool social clubs in the 1950s through psychedelia and the band's irrevocable split in 1970. Each working day's events are described in the sort of fascinating detail that made The Beatles: Recording Sessions such a runaway international best-seller. More than five hundred photographs (many previously unpublished), posters, handbills, tickets, letters, and rare documentation combine with Lewisohn's expert text to create a body of work that will never be rivalled.

For every Beatle fan, past, present of future, this is the ultimate record of those remarkable Beatles years."
