This is the second in a two-volume set. Both books consist of a compilation of the information about the interviews, press conferences and press stories the Beatles gave during their career. The first volume comprises the years of 1957 through 1965. The second volume consists of the years 1966 through 1970. Information is given for every year before the break-up of the Beatles.
Like the first volume, this volume traces the sometimes dizzying series of encounters with the press. For example, in mid-1968 John and Paul were in New York City to plug their new business/record label, Apple. In May 13, 1968, they gave a TV interview at the St. Regis Hotel, NYC. Later, in the early afternoon, at the Americana Hotel, NYC, they gave a press conference. Later that afternoon they were interviewed on air at WNDT, Channel 13, NYC, and gave a TV interview. That evening they appeared at the Tonight Show. They returned to England on May 16, 1968, in front of newsreel cameras.
For every interview, every press conference, every recording session, the authors give the date, time, and location of the encounter, the length of the interview or recording session, for studio recording sessions, what songs were recorded, and the titles of the unauthorized CDs or DVDs where the recording may be found.
These books are highly recommended!
For the Beatles completist, this book expands Lewisohn's remarkable foundation of work, bringing up to date the day-by-day events as they were documented. Winn also corrects some of the minor errors from Lewisohn's recording time line, fixing the location of Beatles in or out of London, and the studio, through other, documented data, principally brief interviews. Nothing will displace Lewisohn from the apex of Beatles research. Winn serves here to amplify it with further data, some unknown until the last few years.
It is not meant as an introductory history of the Beatles and their recording and touring era. Davies' biography is the better place to begin such a study, but it is the facts of the times, from the Revolver sessions to the end of the band. For example, the development of Strawberry Fields Forever, from a simple song to a lasting work of depth made from two complete mixes in two different keys, is a fairly brief note in Davies. Winn takes it start to finish, and most importantly, lists where to find the various takes and mixes. This is true whether it is included in the official EMI canon, or from another source entirely.
Winn has removed the need for Belmo in the Beatles library, as a reference for the group's work and where to find it all. This is the definitive source for all Beatles recordings and where to find them, boots on or off.
