Treasures of the Beatles (book with pull-out reproduced items)
« on: December 19, 2009, 09:24:31 AM »

Treasures of the Beatles by Terry Burrows:

http://www.amazon.com/Treasures-Beatles-Music-Sales-America/dp/1402773455/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1261214091&sr=8-1

Does anyone own this book? What do you think of it? I browsed through it quickly today at a bookstore and it looked pretty cool. It has lots of reproduced items like posters and postcards which are neat to look at, especially for Beatlemaniacs. Quite similar--though probably not as thorough--to the Lennon Legend book, IMO.

I don't have that particular book, but I do have the Bob Dylan Scrapbook which is the same idea. I think it's awesome and just adore it. I get the feeling that the Beatles version wouldn't be as cool, though.

I have this, and I love the stuff it comes with. The two posters it came with are on my wall, although, as said previously, Ringo is blurry in one of the posters, but the other makes up for it, I think.

I have it as well and made a neat sort of collage on my wall with the stuff it came with. My walls were terribly bare before that. =)

As a book I really enjoyed it, as well. A fast read but it's got pages on each Beatle's early life as well as short little descriptions as to why the Beatles wrote or recorded each song on each album. Some nice photos as well.

Here's a photo of all the pull-outs, as well as bits of the posters. =D I'm proud of this.



The only exception is the colorful postcards, which came with Beatles Rock Band (as I'm sure many of you are aware).

^ Did the postcards come with the box set of the game?

Yes. Lol maybe they thought they ought to throw in some extra goodies to make up for the extortionate price.  :D

Grr, I didn't buy the box set, I just bought the game. *sigh* I guess it's time to go searching to see if I can buy them separately.  ha2ha

Hey, who knows, maybe you can find scanned versions online and print them out!  :P

See, I just kept renting the game until I could get the boxed set.  ;D

Really? I bought the game the day it came out, but it just so happened that I had Rock Band 1 and 2 already, so I figured it wouldn't be worth it to buy all new instruments.

I might search ebay. They usually have awesome stuff for cheap. I'll report back tomorrow with my findings.  :P

I went to England very shortly after it came out and never got a chance to buy it. Heh. And all our Rock Band/Guitar Hero instruments were shot to hell anyway, sooo we figured why not.

Ebay is always a good idea!

Why thank you! And yes, the picture of Paul is a poster of the four of them at the Sgt. Pepper's release party and it came with the book.

And yes - he does look gorgeous in it.  :P

That's what I said!  :) Especially since they put a poster of them on Sully's show at the beginning of the book, and then everything else went in chronological order. Sooo the two big posters make nice bookends.  ;D
