On March 22, 1963 the album Please, Please Me was released and a phenomenon was sparked. Now, 50 years later, The Beatles remain one of the most successful and recognizable groups on the planet. In this detail-filled book, musicologist Paul Charles looks at the years The Beatles were writing and recording music together. With an open, and certainly opinionated eye, he explores their music, their cronies, and their stories. This is rock n' roll chronology at its best, from an author who knows a thing or two about the music business. "To share a fan's passion for the music... Single by single, album by album, Charles gushes."-Kirkus Reviews "Very strongly recommended reading for their legions of fans."--The Midwest Book Review, August 2013.
