Every album and every song ever released by the Beatles—from "Please Please Me" (U.S. 1963) to "The Long and Winding Road" (U.S. 1970)—is turned inside out and upside down by a crew of music historians in this lively and fully illustrated work. 
Patti Smith writes a personal preface.

A timely delight! As you know, down in my neck of the woods we're celebrating the day the Beatles spent in the rural Ozark Mountains enjoying their one day off from that first American tour. They fished and swam and rode horses along the Eleven Point River between stops in Dallas and New York. Today, in the little town of Alton, MO, all the store fronts have windows painted for the occasion and local folks are gathering to tell their tales of September 19, 1964. Pop culture becoming folk culture on the hoof.

I love the way things come full circle. The idea of the Fab Four fishing and riding horses. Looks like a great book Bob.

Hello Mike & Jonathan,

Between the book (go into a bookshop and open it and just try to close it, you won't) and Mike's full roots Beatlemania ala Ozarks (where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison) we have it all.

all's well, Bob
