"One of the most important documentaries on rock music ever published, this is EMI Records' official diary-format history of every Beatles recording session, from the first in 1962, when the group was auditioned, to the last recordings in 1970 shortly before the Beatles split.

Introduced by a rare and exclusive interview with Paul McCartney.

Researched from hundreds of unreleased Abbey Road archive tapes, thousands of previously unpublished studio documents and interviews with scores of the key recording personnel.

Over 350 colour and black-and-white photographs and illustrations, including rare photos by Linda McCartney and the first facsimile reproductions of Abbey Road recording sheets, tape boxes, album sleeve roughs, memos, contracts, press releases and much more."
