I've really enjoyed reading this book it not only gives you a great insight into the gear the Beatles used right down to the early fX pedals to their amps and guitars and other vocal fx in the studio but it almost tells the life story of each Beatle and lots of info on who they met along the way, how others influenced them etc etc. As a massive Beatles fan I've read quite a few books but this beats them all and if you play in a Beatles tribute band you will love this its a valuable asset.

Lewisohn's 'Sessions' gave us a great insight into the Beatles recording history, but too much was left unanswered. Not any longer because Andy Babiuk's book does much to fill in the gaps. Here is the definitive guide to how the Beatles got their sound. All the instruments used, some dating back to the mid fifties, have been tracked down & photographed with relevant details given. The photographs are perfect eye candy for anyone who loves old music gear and the text is well written with attention to detail. It is laid out in chronological order which is effective & has it's merits, though my only quibble would be the lack of a definitive chapter on HOW the Beatles were recorded. By this I mean the types of microphones, mixing desks & tape machines they used. These details can be found, though you have to do some sifting through the pages to get what you want about the studio gear itself. However, this is a superb book and essential reading for anyone who takes the Beatles music seriously.

The "Beatles Gear" book is well written, informative and has excellent photographs of the musical instruments used by "The Beatles". It is a hard book to put down and I fully recommend this book to anyone interested in the musical evolution of this exceptional band.
The hardback book was delivered promptly and well packaged.
Thanks JJ Ridley
