I was on my way to order it. The book was 100 USD, but shipping and handling appeared to be 59.10 USD. Total 159.10 USD. That was just one bridge too far. Sorry Brian.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Hullo everyone...

I'm just curious:does ANYONE here have the Recording The Beatles book? I am amazed at how there is no discussion of it around here. I recently got it, and I truly feel this is one of THE most important books ever written on the group. I guess I can't believe everyone's not talking about it.

The website on the book is http://www.recordingthebeatles.com , but I don't think it really does it justice. Judging from the website, you might think it will be all about microphones and speakers and stuff, and there definitely is a lot of technical equipment talk (which is a bit over my head at times). But what the site doesn't really tell you about is the last half of the book, which is all about their songs and how they were recorded. There is so much new information here it's hard to believe. So many new stories and insights from the people that were there and worked with the Beatles. An amazing amount of detail about the songs and sessions and many photos of the group I've never seen anywhere. It feels like every page answers some question I've wondered about for decades. I can't say enough about it.

I think one of the most important things about it is this is one of the few books on the group that presents completely new information, rather than recycling the same old stuff. Yes, it's expensive, but I would encourage everyone here to save up and buy it (there's supposed to be a cheaper version coming some time this year too). It comes in an old tape box with extra goodies, and the whole thing feels like it should cost a few hundred bucks. This book definitely belongs on every Beatles fan's shelf next to the Mark Lewisohn book. It's the perfect companion.

Just curious if anyone else here has it...

Hi DeeMishay and welcome to this forum.  

I haven't read the book yet but I intend to purchase it this summer.  I, too, feel it would be an excellent companion to Mark Lewisohn's book.

Welcome aboard! ;D

As you are now no doubt aware, there have been some discussions about this book and one of the authors even posted here about it at one point!

There are a few VERY interested members here (myself included), however the postal charges to Europe are extremely prohibitive so until it's available via the usual book outlets I'm afraid it wont be selling many copies on this side of the Atlantic.

I don't know if forum members are aware of the re release  of the book "Recording The Beatles" by Curvebender publishing. This book is rather expensive  at $100 but it is worth every penny for the sheer Beatles
information that it contains.  I might  warn that this is not a Beatles novice book and more of a Beatlology  textbook of information regarding  Abbey Road Studios and all of Beatles recording from 1963 to 1970.  If
you have no knowledge of Audio, Electronics and the recording process, this book is not for you. Again, this is for more advanced Beatles fan who want to know about the recording process of  Abbey Road Studios during
the fab four period .

I have the book and it contains  mind blowing information.

I finally got it and read, its the absolute GREATEST for learning at how to do Beatle style recording. I cannot write enough to do it justice. I would like to pursue a career as an engineer, and this is my magic book of spells!

It arrived this week, but I'm not supposed to have a look at it because it's meant to be my birthday present next week.

It is. But I'm pretty sure it's worth it. And with todays exchange rates, it is almost as cheap as you can get.

I'm still waiting for a British bookseller to have this for sale. I'd have liked to have bought it by now but as previously said, shipping costs are prohibative.

Still, with today's exchange rates, it probably won't get cheaper than now. Alternative: come on over and you can read it here.  ;D
