If you're a bit of a Beatles recordings obsessive this is one of three essential books. It's a thorough and well-researched guide to all the musical equipment The Beatles used during their amazing career, with many good pictures, and is largely free of error.
The other two books you'll need to compliment it are Mark Lewisohn's 'The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions' and 'Recording The Beatles' by Kevin Ryan & Brian Kehew [Curvebender Publishing ISBN 978-0-9785200-0-7].
The latter is wonderful, subtitled 'The Studio Equipment and Techniques Used to Create Their Classic Albums' it not only lists all the recording equipment the band used for their recordings, but includes exceptional photos, often of the actual equipment. Additionally there are sections on the studios (Abbey Road predominantly obviously) and breakdowns of some songs' recording processes.
Buy all three books!
