Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beatles Memorabilia: The Julian Lennon Collection (Hardcover)
Any Beatles fan will like this book: it contains superb photographs of memorabilia that were collected by John Lennon's son Julian or given to him by his father, such as gold records (all USA discs), song lyrics, guitars, objects, postcards, clothes etc. Also there are many previously unseen photographs, mainly of Julian as a boy together with John or Paul. Personally I would have loved to see more text by Julian himself. Most text now is by Brian Southall and basically tells "the same old fab4 story", but this is possibly because the book is aimed at a broader public rather than hard-core Beatles fans only. Still it is great to read some personal stories by Julian, like his relationship with Paul McCartney or his experience of drumming on a song on Lennon's Walls and Bridges LP.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in the Beatles or in 60's music. It is a great quality hardback book with excellent value for money. Finally, the book's sales support the White Feather Foundation.
