@Joe Did you ever get this book? Did you enjoy it? Do you recommend it?

@Oyster Black Pearl Have you ever read this book? If so, do you have any thoughts on it for us?

Alas, no. Too many books, so little time. Will have a look out for it, although if I'm being honest my eyes do tend to glaze over when faced with books about Beatles' Liverpool.

Yes, I did get it. David Bedford did a thorough job.

I have too many Beatles books so I tend to take what I need from them, rather than read them cover-to-cover. In this case the most useful thing was the locations of venues around Liverpool that The Beatles played in, which helped when writing my historical blog posts and maps. Quite a lot of the venues no longer exist and I used to spend hours on Google Maps trying to find where on a particular street something once stood; the book gave pretty good info.

That won't help most people though! It's a coffee-table book rather than a tourist guide. It's a good visual companion piece to Tune In, if you feel you'd like to know more about the places in the city.
