Ron Nasty said

@Zig I'd read the Happy Nat bit because there's a nice chunk of the beginning of the book via the "Look Inside" on Amazon, which I found very easy reading.

It does look like a great book though, an important book, and I'm looking forward to my copy arriving.

I'm enjoying it so far Ron Nasty. Even though the mentioning of chords and keys is over my head as a non-musician, he makes it easy to understand. When he mentions certain chord progressions in a particular song, he gives examples of other songs that feature the same chord sequence. This allows me to hum the example songs he mentioned until I get to that "ah-ha!" part that features that chord sequence. It makes it fun and easy to understand. I do enjoy his style of writing. All of the above allows me to forgive the spelling and/or "historical fact" errors (not many so far).

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

Ah, gearing up for the US release? This would explain why randomly, my review of it on my blog has gotten a ridiculous number of hits the past week after being relatively quiet the past several months!  It is a great book...I highly recommend to any Paul/Wings fan.

I thought it was out in the US. One of the best books i've read in a very long time, very highly recommended.

I received an email from Genesis of a book available for order:

GOLDEN DREAMS is a photographic journey, accompanying The Beatles during the filming of A Hard Day's Night in 1964. Pictures of the band are set against the backdrop of Liverpool during the explosion of the Merseybeat phenomenon.

Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler's previously unpublished pictures are presented in a hand-bound, limited edition book, signed by both authors.

Yours for the nominal price of £185.

I'd hate to think of the price if it wasn't.

I should have added that "nominal" was my own sarcastic commentary.

Ah. I'm used to all these sellers peddling things at ridiculously high prices and then claiming its a bargain.

Not a new book, but a new edition... Genesis is releasing a 50th anniversary limited edition for Mania Days, featuring photographs by Curt Gunther.

This was published last year, but I just came across it.

Men, Masculinity, and the Beatles
http://www.amazon.com/Masculin.....1409422433

The Amazon description

Drawing on methodologies and approaches from media and cultural studies, sociology, social history and the study of popular music, this book outlines the development of the study of men and masculinities, and explores the role of cultural texts in bringing about social change. It is against this backdrop that The Beatles, as a cultural phenomenon, are set, and their four live action films, spanning the years 1964-1970, are examined as texts through which to read changing representations of men and masculinity in 'the Sixties'. Dr Martin King considers ideas about a male revolt predating second-wave feminism, The Beatles as inheritors of the possibilities of the 1950s and The Beatles' emergence as men of ideas: a global cultural phenomenon that transgressed boundaries and changed expectations about the role of popular artists in society. King further explores the chosen Beatle texts to examine discourses of masculinity at work within them. What emerges is the discovery of discourses around resistance, non-conformity, feminized appearance, pre-metrosexuality, the male star as object of desire, and the emergence of The Beatles themselves as a text that reflected the radical diversity of a period of rapid social change. King draws valuable conclusions about the legacy of these discourses and their impact in subsequent decades.

The bolding is mine. Go figure. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Just reading that descriptor gives me a headache, god knows how i'd get on reading the book! Any chance it comes with pictures and a dictionary at the back explaining what all the big words mean?
