I received this book by accident about 6 months ago; it was given to me by a friend of a friend, along with many others. This book was, by every means, spectacular...Robert Freeman trailed the Beatles for several years throughout their career as a band, and then going on to chronicle the solo artists as well. His writing style keeps the reader's eyes glued to the pages, not only because of it's pictorial wonderments, but also because the author has an amazing talent for writing. I am the daughter of a 60's female Beatles die-hard, and listening to her stories, combined with the perspectives and views within these pages, brought it all to life for me. I recommend this book to ANYONE that is a fan of the Beatles, no matter the generation; although FIRST GENERATION BEATLES FANS...this book is A MUST!! Being that it is an out of print book, even more reason to own it; it will definitely be a platinum collector's item someday, mark these words...
This book is a treat anybody would love. There are a plethora of delightful photographs that will make readers, from the inveterate fans to those just becoming familiar with the Fab 4 feel as if they are "meeting" the Beatles.This author has a real flair for natural expression and the writing style is crisp and fresh. This is a book with something to offer everyone and I cannot recommend it highly enough. As the only Beatles' fan in my family, I've "introduced" many relatives to the wonderful phenomenon that was the Beatles!This one gets a stellar endorsement and an enthusiastic "YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!" from me! I love it!
For anyone who thinks this is just a re-issue of the the previous book, think again. There are something like 30 "new" pictures. I just loved the new look on some of the older one's like Lennon with the Panda that's now in color and the pic of The Beatles with Mick Jagger really brings you back. This book was such a delight, I purchased the collector's edition that includes a limited edition print for my husband. At the price listed here on , you will not be disappointed by this book.
This book makes you feel like you really met the Beatles! The NEW book has a revised text that is great and many new pictures I never saw before! This book is a winner and a must for every Beatles fan.
This book is fabulous! You really feel like you are there, back in the 1960s, part of the magic that was Beatlemania!This is a different book than the original! first quality and great new pictures!
Much quicker delivery than anticipated.Book arrived in very good condition! High quality book.Love the Beatles! I was familiar with many of the pictures already.Many were new to me also.
Freeman really doesn;t have a lot to say about either the Beatles or the photos he took of them...no professional insights on photography and no intriguing thoughts on the Beatles in the context of the British pop culture scene in the 1960's. Photos are nothing new beyond the album covers, nothing we haven't scene in Hoffman's, Gunther's, Benson's and even Beatle Biographies from Davies, Schaffner and Norman, etc.Don't waste your money - by Hoffman's or Lewisohn's chronicles book if you want nice photos, and more insightful text.
