Posted at Paul's FB:

Paul took the crowd of 50,000 at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on a Magical Mystery Tour back through time at last night’s historic 'Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert'.

During a rarely performed rendition of Little Richard's 'Long Tall Sally' — the last song to be performed in its entirety at The Beatles’ August 29, 1966 final concert at the same venue — the crowd was transported back to that very same night courtesy of a collection of previously unreleased photographs by the late Jim Marshall Photography LLC.

The only photographer to be granted unfettered access to photograph The Beatles’ last ever concert, Marshall’s images were granted this exclusive usage by Paul for his bittersweet goodbye to this iconic ballpark. The images will next be viewable by the general public with the October 14 release of a new book on Marshall’s work The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution (Insight Editions). 

The Haight... is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

Meet the Beatles for Real review of Confessions of a Beatlemaniac!!

As you can tell, I like just about every book about the Beatles that I read.   But this one seriously was one of the funniest and heart warming Beatle books I have read in years.    You will find yourself laughing out loud so many times and you will feel a friendship with Dee and her friends during their adventures to meet the Fab 4.   And even though you know she is going to meet them, you find yourself routing for Dee to meet the guys....to meet them for those of us who will never have that chance.

Thanks for the post, parlance. The book looks interesting and I would like to read it. After viewing the sample pages in the link provided, I hope they don't use the same colors in the actual book. I am just now getting my sight restored after looking at the shocking green.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Examiner article on Candy Leonard's Beatleness. This sounds amazing.

There have been many books through the years about the Beatles, but Candy Leonard's “Beatleness” stands out. It's a fantastic summary that looks at the essence of how the group changed the world in so many ways and why their fans embraced them, focusing on the fans' perspective. In a phone interview, Leonard says that she was surprised it hadn't been done before.

“There was no book that documented what it was like to grow up and watch the magic unfold, to see what it was like record after record and how we were so dazzled by their transformation and all that. Not only the music, but the ideas they put forth, what they represented, the freedom they represented, thinking about things in different ways.” she said.

“And, of course, this got more complicated over a six-year period, but there's no book that really captures it. And I felt like it was a story that needed to be told. I had met so many people, like myself, who felt, you know, living through that was a really special thing that our generation experienced in addition to the Cold War and Kennedy and the moon landing and the other things that, in a sense defined baby boomers. They were really the unifier.

“And (there was) this idea that we experienced something epochal with the coming of the Beatles, and I wanted to explore that and tell that story for history, too. There's so many books about the Beatles, probably numbering in the 1000s, but there was something missing – what was the experience of the end user.”
