The Beatles Years
ANTHEM PUBLISHING LIMITED
The Beatles Years is a brand new four-part series that celebrates the life, music and legacy of the Fab Four.
In this first volume, From Skiffle Boom To The Birth Of Beatlemania, we chart the band's early years, from their formative time as skiffle outfit The Quarrymen through to their gruelling apprenticeship in Hamburg and the screaming hysteria-fuelled height of Beatlemania at the close of 1963. By then, John, Paul, George and Ringo were household names. Within weeks, they would be taking America by storm.
Across this 132-page collector's edition, recollections from Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr are interwoven with comments from friends, writers and experts, which bring fresh context to the story of the greatest group of all time.
At the heart of it all is the music. This first volume charts the development of the band's raw, innovative sound, the blossoming of Lennon and McCartney's songwriting partnership and the prolific creation of the classic early songs, all of which are assessed here on a track by track basis.
The Beatles Years is rich in anecdotes, bringing new insight to the story of the Fab Four. It is an enthralling and indispensable addition to any serious fan's collection.
