So I found this website, http://www.wingspan.ru/books.html . The page I've linked to contains an a link to just about every McCartney book of note which you can read online! Free. The site has magazine articles and sheet music and... Well, it's amazing.

The difficulty is that the headers and descriptions are all in Russian; at least I think it's Russian! But the content is largely in English. Surf around for a bit... Well worth it!

I've been using that site for a couple of years now. It's great for when I don't have a copy of Anthology or Many Years From Now to hand. I've never mentioned it before because I didn't want it to be shut down.

It's quite hard to navigate, for me at least, because it's mostly in Russian. The back issues of Club Sandwich (McCartney's fan club magazine) are there somewhere too - if anyone can find an index page for all of them please post the link. I've only ever come across random issues/pages by Googling.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

Soooooo... Perhaps I should have not posted this?
