Product Description


Stunning...Keith [Badman] has a way with words and, as many of our readers will know from his past BEATLES works, an eye for detail that is second to none. (BEATLESDAYS.COM)

...[a] fascinating book. Dip in, and you'll find pictures of John as a sweet-faced schoolboy and Ringo as a Butlins Redcoat; from cheesy shots taken on tour in Sunderland, Blackpool and Dundee...This vivid portrait is completed by a clutch of previously unseen pictures - some taken by fans - including holiday snaps of the boys and their wives. Full of youth, hope and life, it is a genuinely poignant documentary in light of how messily it all ended. (YOU MAGAZINE, MAIL ON SUNDAY (30.10.05))

There is... much worth poring over... these photographs speak volumes. (Q MAGAZINE (December issue))

Dipping into select moments of the band's lives, recording moments on and off duty - many of which are often awkward, unprepared and with varying levels of competence - only adds to the compelling nature of the book. It does actually feel like you're gaining a real insider's peep and THE BEATLES UNSEEN offers probably the only view of the quarter hitherto unviewed. And whether you're a fanatic, a collector or a curious voyeur, it is well worth a look. (Mark Robertson THE LIST (3.11.05))

...a touching collection of previously unpublished photos taken mainly by fans, family and friends...they offer a fresh perspective on a familiary tale. This is a lavishly-produced 360 pager which completists and casual fans alike will be happy to find on their coffee tables this Christmas. (Alan Lewis RECORD COLLECTOR (January 2006))

Book Description

A major collection of Beatles photographs, from every stage of their career, seen for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beatle Treasure Chest, Yeah, Yeah, YEAH! 15 Nov 2005
By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This is an excellent book that will no doubt bring endless delight to Beatle fans and those just becoming familiar with the Beatles. Many previously unpublished photographs are included as well as delightful anecdotes about the Beatles and their meteoric rise to fame.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. As much as I love the Beatles Unseen Archives, I enjoyed this book even more. Fans will revel in the photographs and the stories. This book will spark an even greater interest in the World's Number One band. I give this one a hearty recommendation and an equally hearty yeah, yeah, YEAH! I love it!

Not the photos have something to say, but you can appreciate the freshness of the black and white (still actual). Anyway is a book about the greatest band in the world, is a very nice bokk and that's enough (for me)
