The Unreleased Beatles: Music & Film

The Unreleased Beatles fills in vital gaps in the Beatles story while solving long-standing mysteries surrounding recordings of the most influential band ever. The book covers the entire Beatles career from the first recording of the Quarrymen in 1957 to the outtakes of the final session of Let It Be in 1970. Not only does the book feature 378 pages of text, it includes more than 100 photographs that detail unreleased studio outtakes, BBC recordings, live concert recordings, home demo recordings, fan-club Christmas recordings and other informal demos done outside of EMI Studios. Unreleased video footage from 1961 to 1970 and outtakes from 1990s interviews filmed for Anthology, plus a general overview of Beatles bootlegs and never-recorded material fill up this must-have resource for Beatles collectors. Not to mention there are very entertaining reports of recording sessions gone wrong, avant-garde dabbling from the other Beatles, alternate and unused lyrics—all this and more put into chronological order for easy reference.
