Some examples from the 2012 Carlton Books Limited edition.
Page 25: ‘The February 11, 1963, the day of the album session, was cold.’
Page 41: ‘Between 1963 and 1965, they released at least three singles a year and two albums, an large output for a group who were at the same time touring, filming and meeting the press.’
Page 42: ‘The rapid expansion of the hysteria around the group from can be dated to their appearance on Sunday Night At the London Palladium’.
P 128: ‘Its eventual title was a Ringo-ism which John decided the use because it added some deceptive levity to what otherwise might have sounded like a bleak journey in nothingness.’
P 193: ‘ Julian was standing her whistling to them.’
There’s more as well. Very disappointing!
