I‘m about to buy a few new Beatles books and would really appreciate any suggestions. I currently own Paul‘s Many Years From Now, Lennon- biography by Ray Coleman, Can‘t Buy Me Love, MOJO‘s 10 Years That Shook The World, a picture book 365 days and Hunter Davies‘s Biography. I am especially interested in book about George as I don‘t have one yet. But I really want it to be a quality book with correct information and no silly mistakes...
Any suggestions are much appreciated
Peace and Love
After reading Peter Doggett
's book You Never Give Me Yr Money
, I wanted to get my hands on every quality Beatles related solo book I could find. Here's my advice
1) I Me Mine
by George Harrison
To me, you have to start off at the source and since Olivia just re-released this in paperback it's a must for all Beatle-fans
2) While My Guitar Gently Weeps: The Music of George Harrison
by Simon Leng
This one just came out and Simon writes about every solo song George has written, performed and played on. Kind of like a Revolution in the Head for Harrison. Most Excellent.
3) The George Harrison Encyclopedia
by Bill Harry
I stumbled upon the collection of these fab four individual encyclopedia for John and Paul. I bought both and loved them, The George and Ringo volumes aren't as comprehensive but are still essential.
I say if you have these three books, y're set for now. I have a feeling with the release of Martin Scorsese's Harrison documentary there will be a flood of Harrison books, official and/or otherwise, coming out in the next six months.
I hope this helps, I read most, if not, all of the customer reviews on Amazon and BN.com before purchasing. Good Luck,
Happy hunting and eventually reading,
