At times, he makes you laugh. At times, he forces you to pause...and reflect on the music and the personalities that emanated from the place where Beatlemania first began.
Sam Leach may have "never found his pot of gold" out there, but fate placed him in a unique and wonderful spot in music history. He writes about it, here, with a genuine fondness for the era, and a certain amount of pride.
Make no mistake about it, as John Lennon once said..... Sam Leach WAS the pulse of the Merseybeat.

It is one of those books that you want to read from cover to cover, again and again. I could not put it down. The local flavor is fantastic. The style in which it was written makes you feel as if you were there. You can touch the buildings, feel the beat, see the groups, and hear the music. You can taste the fish n' chips! The energy jumps off the pages at you. It leaves you wanting for more when you are finished reading it.
Sam deserves much more credit than the world has given him for the early days of the true Merseybeat. I sincerely hope this book is just the start of the recognition for him that he truly deserves. Sam should be included in every discussion, program, documentary, TV show, and movie about the emerging Beatles.
Tell everyone you know to buy this book for the real story of how the Beatles started. They will thank you and you will be doing your part to set history straight.
Thank you Sam, for letting us know how it really was and for writing such a great account of what must have been a great time to witness! Peace.
