TOP 500 REVIEWERon 30 September 2012
Paolo Hewitt has grasped the opportunity, as no doubt others, to assemble a portfolio of the Beatles. The take on this is a bullet-point production of 50 key-Beatles' moments. Entertaining enough although skating over the nitty-gritty of the group and their individual histories. There are a plethora of these available, Philip Norman, Hunter Davies, Beatles' Anthology, Michael Braun and Lennon's infamous revelations in his interview with Jann Wenner in 'Rolling Stone magazine', still sitting on my shelf, have done this. What does this bring that is new? Not a lot to the 60's generation. It does categorise the chapters in their evolution and emphasise the impact they also had socially in a rapid change in lifestyle, not just in Britain, but globally, cracking the American scene and opening the floodgates for their largely outcast music (apologies to Acker Bilk).

This may be entry level to many. Hopefully it will encompass the time and effect the period had. Each generation has the 'I was there and remember what and where' factor. This is mine and many others. I suspect it will be in your collection as a thumb-through, maybe picked up at a cheaper price later (no means extravagant now). Well-illustrated. 'Love Me Do' gets a vote.
