There’ll be an ebook version available soon too, but it’s 6 O’Clock in the morning now, I’ve pulled an all-nighter, the conversion to .epub hasn’t worked properly and there’s no way I’m hand-hacking XML when I’m this tired, so you’ll have to wait a while for that.
The book contains:
Expanded versions of my Beatles In Mono reviews, now with every single song analysed.
Five longer analyses – of Hey Jude, Strawberry Fields, A Day In The Life, A Hard Day’s Night and Tomorrow Never Knows
Shorter (but still multi-page) looks at the two stereo-only albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be, plus the Ballad Of John & Yoko/Old Brown Shoe single.
And brief (one page at most) reviews of Love, Let It Be… Naked, Live At The BBC, The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl, Liverpool Sound Collage and the three Anthology double-discs.
I go die now. And you go buy books, so my sacrifice isn’t in vain. Hardback and paperback. The paperback will also shortly be available through (US) Amazon, but the hardback will only be available through that site.
I haven’t received my proof copies, so I apologise in advance for any typos or printing errors. I’ve done everything here from writing it to typesetting to proofreading to cover design, so some errors are bound to have crept in – but hopefully not enough to stop it being worth your while.
