I have a signed copy of this book! I won it in a competition on Sounds of the Sixties on BBC Radio 2.

It's a good read from an insiders point of view.

I've got a copy but I haven't read it all yet. I bought if for a couple of quid when Virgin/Zavvi were going out of business last year. The bits I've read, mainly around the 1966 tour and Candlestick Park were very interesting.

Barrow's a bit of a forgotten figure these days, but he was all over the early LPs and EPs with his sleeve notes - they must have made their way into millions of homes around the world (though mainly in the UK).

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

Read it Joe! If I recall its one that doesn't boast "The Beatles were my bestest buddies and I did this and that etc which changed history". Unlike Emerick Wink

I also read this one and recommend it.

From what I've read (which isn't everything), Barrow does the best job of analyzing the 65-66 Beatles, like the Elvis meeting, Phillipines and Epstein's fade.
