Between 1963 and 2003, the Beatles Book chronicled the group’s remarkable career as it happened. During the Golden era of Beatlemania in the 1960s, the Beatles Book was the only officially authorised magazine and this gave them unique and unparalleled access to the band, visiting them backstage, in the recording studio, on the film set, in their homes and during all the other events that marked the Beatles’ extraordinary progress from the Casbah Club in the backstreets of Liverpool to the biggest stadiums in the world!
Among the contributors to the Beatles Book were many of their closest friend and associates, who were able to provide their private, personal insights into the group. This volume was compiled by Johnny Dean who edited every edition over the past forty years, forming his own special relationship with the band.
This fabulous volume contains 40 years worth of the best photos features and letters from the Official Beatles magazine. Every aspect of the Beatles is addressed, uncovered and explored in detail from their childhoods and early origins to the after years, the other bands and the deaths of John and George. The combination of on-the-spot reporting, in-depth analysis and spectacular photos from the magazine’s unique archive makes The Best Of The Beatles Book the perfect souvenir for every fan of the Fab Four, from the original Beatles People of the 1960s to those who are just discovering the group’s magic for the first time.
The Beatles Book is still the most widely read fan magazine ever published, with a worldwide readership that ran into millions. This is a phenomenal compendium of the finest stories, candid revelations and poignant articles from this inimitable and important publication, containing a vast number of magnificent photographs, which help reveal all facets of this most famous group.
