I actually had to buy a 2015 calendar.  A local bank donated them to work every year, and then I retired and was out in the wilderness!

Well, that's it George. You gotta come out of retirement! My son always gets me a Beatles calendar but this year he got me another Beatles item.

That looks like a great one, Kelley! I'll be waiting for your review.   ;)

The pictures are great; there's many I haven't seen before. I was going to qualify that with a comment about inaccuracies but I decided to do a little research elsewhere and it's not really bad...so far. I am confused on one thing though. He quotes Paul as expressing concern about their reception in America and wondering what they could give us that we didn't already have. I always thought George said that and searching gives me variations on the quote, mostly attributed to Paul but sometimes not attributed to any particular Beatle. I dunno!

Interesting! It's frustrating to read a book that contains a statement that directly contradicts another book. Whom to believe? With my recent book purchases (with Christmas money -- thanks, Dad!) I realized that I can vet ocean liner authors much more accurately than I can Beatles authors. And it's disturbing that some poorly regarded authors (in the case of ocean liners, at least) get 4-star+ ratings on Amazon. I'm much more confident shopping for books on ships than I am for the Beatles. Maybe that's why I'm more hesitant to shell out for Beatles books -- except for the Lewisohn ones, of course.

I guess the fact that there are so many Beatles books ups the odds of finding not-so-great ones. Now that I have several Mark Lewisohn books for reference I'm more focused on the books with pictures. I'm glad you've been able to treat yourself to some new books since Christmas. :)

It's always a good idea to check things out in the book thread before you buy anything.   glassesslip

Indeed. Not sure if there's anything in that thread on The Guitar's All Right, but it just arrived, and I learned it was written by a Beatles fan who met Mimi in 1973. Doesn't bode well but I'm trying to keep an open mind.

I'm ashamed to say I still need to see that. It's been on the shelf for a long time.
