"AN EXCITING, ENTERTAINING BLAST OF THE PAST OF THE SIXTIES!" 3 Nov 2013
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are certain things in life we never forget. As I read through the remarkable pages of my era, the first thing that came to mind was one of the most exciting days of my life, Shea Stadium, and the Beatles in live concert. I remember at age 63, as if it were yesterday, August 15, 1965. It was the day after my fifteenth birthday, when I visited my cousins that summer in Brooklyn, New York. They had tickets to see the Beatles in live concert, and from the moment I found out, I was in a state of shock. I rode the trains from South Brooklyn to Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets, where we attended the incredible concert. There was over 55,000 fans there, people screaming and passing out, and police officers everywhere. I was mesmerized the entire day, and have never seen a crowd that big in my life. One of the best memories I will ever have was to be fortunate enough to attend that groovy, amazing concert!

Terry Burrows delivers an exciting portrait of the sixties, not only about the Beatles, but includes many famous people, and the fond memories of that era. The author also chronicles insight about: The Ed Sullivan Show; The Temptations; The 4 Seasons; The Byrds; The Chiffons; Jimi Hendrix; and more. In Addition, Terry Burrows includes information on the peace protests, and years of glowing nostalgia as we read about Brian Epstein, and many other famous artists.

This fascinating book tells it like it was through dated concerts, personal lives,events, and amazing special performances. The colorful photos, along with inspiring stories, bring back wonderful memories of 'those oldies but goodies!' Enjoyable, and entertaining. Highly recommended!
A Panoramic Look At The Beatles' Lives 21 July 2014
By Nathan Albright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book happened to be a birthday present from my mother, and she did so just knowing my love of books, the Beatles, and historical chronology. By chance, it happens to mirror the class I took on Coursera about the Beatles, which spent a lot of time talking about songs and music (interests which this particular book mirrors), while examining the course of the Beatles along a very clear career track. First, the Beatles had to learn their craft through hard work and lots of covers and paying their dues in Liverpool and Hamburg. Here they opened and did backup duties for more established acts and developed the rudiments of their songwriting after working with a lot of acts in genres like skiffle, comedy, and R&B. After this, the Beatles developed their songwriting, first John and Paul and then George, albeit belatedly, while they became more and more popular within Great Britain. Then, of course, came Beatlemania within the United States, and then the gradual distance that grew between their ambitious studio sound and their increasingly difficult live performances, followed by their period as increasingly distinct singer-songwriters with less and less collaboration between them.

This book is organized in a chronological fashion, going back to the marriages of the Beatles’ parents, and the births of the Beatles and the key people in their lives. The book covers the important concerts, recording incidents, personal incidents, business affairs, studio work, and travels of the Beatles, the early revolving lineup, and includes sidebars to important cultural events that were related to the Beatles. Of particular interest is the way that the author manages to subtly cover many of the complicated elements that influenced the Beatles, including girl groups as well as the music of the Beach Boys and Bob Dylan. There is, of course, a lot of discussion about drugs, including how it divided the Beatles, how different members of the Beatles had visa problems later on with the United States because of drug convictions, and how the Beatles actually sponsored an advertisement in the 1960′s seeking for the legalization of marijuana, which they all smoked, among other things.

This particular book is about two hundred pages long, and constructed like a diary, with brief but informative entries that show the complex tangle between the personal and professional lives of the Beatles. The book also continues to basically the present day, looking at the ups and downs of the individual Beatles. It does not cover their inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but it does cover their significant solo albums, their last hit records, and the deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison. For a Beatles fan, even one who is critical about their personal relationship drama, their rampant drug use, and their general role in encouraging and mirroring cultural decline, this is a worthwhile book and an honest book that does not whitewash the history but rather seeks to present it honestly, even where there are differences in accounts between multiple people. This sort of open and fair-minded approach makes this a valuable work of history about very familiar subjects.

oh those fab liverpool mopheads! 22 Oct 2013
By Donald Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Even if you somewhat remember the sixties this is a good memory jogger. It brings back the excitement for all things Beatles all the time. It is a well laid out book with significant dates and happenings in the lives and art of the Fab Four. My sister was (and is) a rabid Beatles fan. She and her man are also trivia buffs to the max so this book will doubly entertain.It's also chock full o' photos! All in all,a good blast of nostalgia.
