Product Description

Review

"This visually enticing look at the solo careers of each of the four Beatles has the feel of a lovingly crafted fan scrapbook. Festooned with a caricature of its subject on the cover, each slim volume is packed with pull-out quotes and photographs. Journalist and author Snow s (former editor, Mojomagazine) genuine enjoyment of these musicians is evident from his wordplay, callbacks to previous songs, and snappy chapter and subheading titles ( A Real Everywhere Man, Dark Hoarse ). However, he isn t blinded by his admiration, allowing himself to be critical of the artists endeavors when necessary. In general, Snow is far more enthusiastic when providing analysis of the quartet s creative output than he is when discussing details of their personal lives. Because these are concise overviews rather than in-depth examinations, fans who want more comprehensive portraits would do better to seek out biographies of the individual Beatles (Philip Norman sJohn Lennon: The Lifeis an especially strong offering).VERDICTAlthough there s no shortage of material on the Fab Four, this charming and attractive title will appeal to pop culture and music fans, particularly those looking for an introduction to John, Paul, George, and Ringo post-Beatles." - "Library Journal " "

About the Author

London-born journalist and author MAT SNOW is the award-winning former editor of the world-renowned music magazine Mojo. A Beatles nut since age four back in 1963, he has interviewed Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as a galaxy of non-Beatles, including The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Kinks and many more. He continues to live in London with a daughter named after a Kinks song and a dog named after Dolly Parton, another favorite interviewee.

Other reviewers say the books are insubstantial, that they have little text, but they miss the point. It is an illustrated chronicle, it's in the title. There are some fantastic pictures of the four in their various solo pursuits. An example is Ringo starr with two pages of his work with his friend Marc Bolan another favourite of mine. Each book has a wealth of pictures which are interesting, not for a read through but as a visual record it is an excellent collection, and at a fiver a hard back book on amazon what's to lose, give it a try.

A lovely presentation with slip case, excellent artwork and design. As with all 'beatle' books, contains odd 'snippets' and pics not seen before. All this for less than £20! Excellent!

If you're a Beatle fan you be dissapointed. There isnt an iota of new info that I wouldn't know from other sources. But looks good on the shelf, all four books are hard-covered, put together in a harcover box hence its a few kilos more on my bookshelf. Plus all the photos are razor sharp, layout is nice, font is a reader-friendly. Well ... its not so bad overall. Minus one star for heaviness.

There is no question that this set of 4 books, presented in a slipcase, is beautifully designed. However, anyone looking for a detailed history of the solo careers of John, Paul, George and Ringo will be disappointed.

Each book is just under 100 pages, so there is little room for detail. Some of the pictures are interesting but many have been seen before. Ultimately, the set looks very attractive and impressive, but the books will probably stay on your shelf gathering dust after you have thumbed through them once or twice. A real missed opportunity to delve in depth into The Beatles solo careers.
