Good Day Sunshine - Issue #80

Good Day Sunshine #80 This is the most comprehensive issue ever - 172 pages! And it's also the first issue in a while: Matt Hurwitz took over the magazine from GDS founder Charles F. Rosenay!!!, and it's been a big jump for him to make from writer to publisher.

GDS of course covers all Beatles related events, appearances and releases in great detail. What makes it so special is the best in-depth coverage and expanded stories of Beatle news around. For me, GDS is an invaliable source of information. Only in GDS I can find all the detailed background information (e.g. in-depth interviews with recording engineers like the detailed process of preparing Free As A Bird; how the Anthology covers were developed; etc.) which I always wanted to read about! Don't miss the current issue ("special edition"), it's absolutely worth it (and it's 172 pages - more than twice as much as the usual 80 pages)!
