Journalist, broadcaster and Beatles authority Spencer Leigh analyses and discusses the Beatles and their records with the help of his vast archive of recorded interviews about the Beatles – more than anyone in the world. Leigh has been interviewing musicians, roadies, fellow broadcasters and many others on his BBC Radio Merseyside programmes for over 30 years. This book draws upon that resource and the plethora of books about the Beatles that have preceded it. Each chapter is prefaced by the cultural or historic events of the times to put the music into context. This book will take you on an enjoyable musical journey and you will be thoroughly entertained by it and will be listening with fresh ears to the Beatles back catalogue.
