This was my first real introduction to music, which has been a motivating force in my life ever since. My "obsession" with the Beatles as many of my friends call it has come to include, not only owning and studying every Beatles song ever made, but analyzing every book and website written to find out as much as I can about the Beatles music. While many publications and websites include all the intimate details about the Beatles childhood, married life, drug use, business affairs and controversial opinions, my interest always stayed within the bounds of why we all were attracted to the Beatles in the first place; their MUSIC! As interesting as all of these facets of their lives are, they all seemed secondary to me. That's where this website comes in. I always had to dig and dig and dig to find out the information that I wanted to learn about a certain song the Beatles recorded.
A vibrant and exhaustive factual and emotional picture of John, Paul, George, and Ringo's early life and times It actually adds some new information--or at least a fresh analysis--to this often-told story The lads's schoolboy years are told in captivating detail Engagingly written, meticulously researched and documented, and tremendously insightful. The Beatles respects its subjects without canonizing them Best of all, at the end of the long and winding road, it sends us back home to the music.
His encyclopedic grasp pervades every page. Spitz's genius is how he stitches together available Beatles knowledge with the artistry of a fine novelist.
What makes Spitz's book a standout is his attention to visual detail He has a knack for description and for cliffhangers. Every chapter of The Beatles promises more misery for the lads, more pleasure, more surprise. The Beatles comes as close to being a quick read as any page book has a right to be Spitz also does a remarkable job capturing the distinct qualities of each Beatle.
Packed with details and anecdotes that bring the Fab Four to life Spitz's group portrait should now be considered the definitive Beatles biography. The first third of this opus is a treasure chest of revelation Spitz demonstrates his deep research and writing chops by transporting us to the place where it all began This book reminds us--in generous detail--that the Fab Four were just people.
The early chapters are irresistible; they have the hypnotic effect of a film clip run backward. Startlingly well-reported and consistently engaging Even though the Beatles story is well known, Spitz has fleshed it out fully, revealing the flawed, singularly creative human beings behind the lovable moptop image What Spitz does exceptionally well is contextualize. A deep, serious, and accomplished account worthy of the most important band in the world A book that, although exceptionally lengthy, is actually the perfect size Spitz expertly captures the sense of time and place to frame his story.
The Beatles amplifies and corrects some of what is known about the band's formative years. It shapes a particularly vivid picture of the young, surly John Lennon It powerfully evokes both the excitement and the price of such a sudden rise A captivating picture that hasn't been seen before.

Capitol Records desired to record the group live for release as a US-only album, since George Martin vetoed the idea for the British market. The second day of taped rehearsals in Twickenham Studios on January 3rd, , saw The Beatles go over the song again after nearly four and a half years of it not being touched.
From this, he produced a magnificent version of the song to be used as a bonus track on the long-awaited re-release of "Live At The Hollywood Bowl.
A guitar solo section is included following the verse structure, followed by an additional bridge and verse before the song closes. The same riff is then repeated for the remaining two measures of the introduction joined by the rest of the band, cowbell and bongos included.
We then enter into the first 12 measure verse, highlighted by a melody line emphasizing the quarter notes of the measures. The twelfth measure takes us back to the D chord, which is a perfect segue into another verse.
The second verse contains some subtle but interesting changes, one being the melody line now focusing on eighth notes instead of quarter notes. The second change is the appearance of answering backing vocals from Paul and George starting from the sixth measure.
The verse ends identically as the first did except for staying on the G chord to propel them into the bridge.
The unpredictable chord changes in this eight measure bridge snake along with the bluesy melody line and background vocals to generate an engaging vibe.
The seventh and eighth measure display the jabbing staccato eighth notes heard in the verses, which move the song nicely back to the third and final verse of the pattern. This third verse reverts back to ending in a D chord to segue into the solo section of the song, which is performed over the complete set of verse chords.
Lennon himself steps out for the first time on record playing lead guitar, creating tension while the background vocals chant along the title of the song.
John was quite proud of the conclusion to this song. Like a piano. He does not express these feelings in an apologetic way, but aggressively and in a justifiably demanding way. Therefore he fears being laughed at by onlookers if the appearance shows she might be interested in someone else.
In hindsight, Paul himself recognized this to be true. Lennon definitely shines on this track, especially as lead guitarist. John nails it vocally as well, performing a rough but convincing bluesy growl deserving of being the standout vocal track on the album. George Harrison's new string is heard prominently in the main riff of the song, which is performed to perfection.
Ringo rides primarily on the hi-hat throughout while not providing any variance from his rock beat apart from his accents at the end of each verse. The Beatles as a whole produce an unpolished masterpiece. Capitol was so anxious to release this album that they decided not to wait for a stereo mix of the song. All they had was the mono mix that was used for the single.
