There's a nice grid on the NYT site that shows which Beatles songs George Martin performed on (not all that many, as it turned out, but it's still presented quite well). This site's listed in the sources at the end.

Ooh, that was fun.  Love the placement of the clips with each track. I challenge any Forumpudlian to go through the list without clicking on at least a few of the clips. 

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Gonna take a while to get used to. Wish we didn't have to. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Anyway, came here to post about The Dead Straight Guide to The Beatles by Chris Ingham [Red Planet, 2015].

It's the latest edition of what used to be known as The Rough Guide to The Beatles, first published in 2007.

How many editions have included this, I don't know, but he has a list of the "Best Beatles Websites":

The Beatles Official Website
  - obvious top of the list,

The Official Solo Websites
  - again, obvious four to have on the list.

Beatle Links
  - not really a Beatles website, but a set of links to Beatles websites, a lot of Beatles websites. Can lead to some interesting cul-de-sacs.

The British Beatles Fan Club
  - again, totally obvious.

Beatles Interviews
  - a good site for in their own words.

The Internet Beatles Album
  - another resource site many will know.

The Beatles Bible
 - in the author's words: "The songs, the people, the trivia, more Beatles detail than you need to know. Or so you think."

The Beatles Help In The World
  - a one topic, in this case the Help ! film and album, example of the very, very specialist sites.

Beatles Beatles Beatles
  - can't comment. Not a site I've stumbled on.

YouTube
  - no longer as useful as it used to be.

I think @Joe can be pleased with that,

He hasn't logged on beyond the grave, so he probably thanked the post twice on the 4th of October.

I think @Joe can be pleased with that,

I am, but it's quite strange. Those words aren't mine at all!

I meant the author of the book, @Joe, Chris Ingham.

I didn't rip his list verbatim, the comments on the rest of his list are mine.

I started reading this today. From the author's Acknowledgements:

The Beatles have been the subject of almost as much analysis in the digital age as they were before the internet became part of our everyday lives. As on online resource, I found myself referring to beatlesbible.com in order to check key dates, although a number of the shows described in here had to be verified through other research.

This link to the book on Amazon allows you to look at the first portion of the book including the above.

Very interesting, @Zig.

I don't quite understand this line though, and as you have the book you may know what the author means:

I found myself referring to beatlesbible.com in order to check key dates, although a number of the shows described in here had to be verified through other research.

Is the author suggesting that they have discovered previously undocumented shows?

Maybe he meant he used beatlesbible.com but then for others looked at a second source for confirmation.

There was talk when 'Tune In' came out that a few undocumented shows were believed to exist so maybe.

I noticed a quite big mistake in the new Expedia UK virtual tour of the Cavern, The Cavern Club Chronicles, and so was looking for somewhere to offer a correction or comment. Couldn't find anywhere in my wanderings around, but that's neither here nor there, apart from it led to me pressing the "Info" button to see if there was anything there. Turned out to just be a short list of acknowledgements and thanks:

And right there on the list, between "Rolling Stones" and "Wikipedia", is "Beatles Bible", with a link @Joe's article on their first appearance there on 9 February 1961.

Now, that's the kind of mention elsewhere that could well lead people here...
