Product Description

The Beatles Live by Mark Lewisohn, 1986 A very good copy of this 1986 Paperback, complete with free disc. There are Beatles books and Beatles books. This one is indispensable. Mark Lewisohn has made an enormous contribution to the history of British popular music with this volume. In compiling an accurate, detailed and entertaining record of every live Beatles and embryo Beatles performance, from the Quarry Men's audition for Carroll Levis on 9 June 1957 to the final concert in San Francisco just over nine years later, he has produced a document that illustrates the extraordinary pace, excitement and exhaustion of those years better than any ordinary biography or discography has yet done. The Beatles on record, film, television and videotape will always be with us-the Beatles as a live act can never be experienced again. And it is good news indeed that somebody of Lewisohn's integrity and intelligence has written a book like this before the facts, figures and first-hand memories of the world's greatest group of popular musicians on stage fade away. As a rock historian, publisher and Beatles fan, I am delighted to have a modest connection with this remarkable book. Tim Rice, Great Milton, February, 1986 The book has 208 pages with lots of black & white images. ISBN 1851450300

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeline of Live Beatle Magic 18 Dec 2000
By Oky, - Published on Amazon.com
I brought this book and read it from cover to cover a number of years back and I continually pick it up to check the facts. The book has a wealth of information about the live performances of the Beatles from 1957 to the last live performance on the 29th August 1966 at The Candlestick Park San Francisco. It details what songs were played and who sang the lead vocal. A breif history of the period under review. Remember Beatlemaina in Adelaide back in 1964 where more than 300,000 fans lined the streets to see their heros. Its all descibed here. This is a must have book and despite being able to have some of this book reproduced in Mark Lewisohn's The Complete Beatles Chronicles, you still need this book. Its worth the search for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Information overload? 25 Oct 2008
By cynicalgirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I do like this book. BUT a little info can go a long way. I wish that it had not been quite as detailed as odd as that may sound because after a while your head cannot absorb any more! Seriously it is a good book just not quite as good as I was led to believe. And don't worry if you didn't get the "record"--it is one of those flimsy things that I haven't seen since an old DOWNBEAT (I think it was DOWNBEAT) in the 1960's!
