Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This “Bible of the Beatles” captures the iconic band's magical and mysterious journey from adorable teenagers to revered cultural emissaries. In this fully updated version, each of their 241 tracks is assessed chronologically from their first amateur recordings in 1957 to their final “reunion” recording in 1995. It also incorporates new information from the Anthology series and recent interviews with Paul McCartney. This comprehensive guide offers fascinating details about the Beatles' lives, music, and era, never losing sight of what made the band so important, unique, and enjoyable.

Revolution in the Head isn't merely the best book ever written on The Beatles (and still so good as to be light years ahead of anything else currently on the shelves), it's one of the best books ever written about music, the sixties and English social history.

Even if you have only a passing interest in The Beatles I can't recommend it enough.
