I know that the original 77 issues are available for download, which I have, but what the Christmas specials and issues 78 onwards, I'd love to see those, although they probably aren't as reliable as a source because unlike in the 60's when Mal and Neil were writing them while The Beatles were still around, these other issues were written by someone else and were written after the fact. I do think the original 77 issues would make a great book though, I sure wish they made issues in 1970 instead of stopping in 1969, it would've been interesting to see.

Issues 78+ are out there. They are very good for articles on the Beatles and solo years as well as having information on the later Beatles reissues and releases; for instance, there are reports on early configurations of Anthology 2 and 3 with songs that were eventually dropped.

A lot of that stuff would be interesting to read. I have read very little of these magazines, which is part of the reason that I was wondering if they had been released in book form.

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

Do you guys agree with everything this book says, I personally do for the most part because it was made while The Beatles were still around from people who were associated with them, often Mal and Neil, so I therefore rank it higher than any other source besides photographic or film evidence. However, there still are a few things that are mentioned in the magazine that seem a little iffy, here's a few:

They claim that Paul played harpsichord on Fixing A Hole . Unlike most of their claims, I tend to ignore this one because George Martin claims that he played harpsichord and also that neither Mal nor Neil were allowed at the session.

They also claim that Ringo sang backing vocals and clapped his hands on Dear Prudence . Although it is possible that they got Ringo back from vacation in time for the overdubs or that Ringo did some overdubs by himself after he returned from Sardinia, it seems unlikely.

They then claim that John is the sole vocalist on I'm So Tired . I haven't looked into this one so I can't say whether I think the backing vocals are from Paul or John.

Is there an online version of these books so i don't have to download them, that'd be great. I can't even find this on torrents anymore but i really love The Beatles and learning about The Beatles.

Hello Fellow Beatle Fans:

I've just joined the Beatles Bible. I have a collection of Beatle Books and would like to obtain a number of issues that I do not have (#'s 1-5). I have several duplicates of certain issues and will exchange for the ones that I do not have.

Hope to hear from someone.

Thanks.

Ev

Ev, you're missing the earliest books, printed in smaller numbers than later issues, so a little harder to get hold of. Suggest you try eBay, or other online marketplace. Reprints from 1970s are commonly sold as originals, so don't believe everything a seller tells you! Of course, if you don't mind reprints - they contain exactly the same info - just buy the Appreciation Mags, which contain copies. Steve

#'s 1+5 circulate online freely. Not that helps you if you want physical copies.

Hiya, I'm new here and very nice to meet you all. I'm looking for some advice, I  inherited about 40 plus Beatles monthly mags and also 8 beatles vinyl. Was wondering if they are worth holding in to or sell them , if so what's their value, as their pretty much useless to me. All advice richly appreciated! 🙂

Hey @vonniexx ! I moved your post to our catch-all Beatles Monthly thread to keep everything in one place.

I couldn't give you a good idea sorry (though they'd be worth a little bit I would assume.....) though I know there are plenty of people here who will be able to tell you more precisely.

Best way to find the current value of anything is to go on eBay and check under 'sold' listings. 

Obviously, the originals are worth more than the reprints as well. 

 

Here is a guide on how to spot an original, which was found by Joe, after a lot of digging last year.
