Take That dominated the UK charts in the first half of the '90s, becoming the most successful British band since the Beatles. Fans were bereft at their break-up ten years ago but now the band is back, with a reunion tour in 2006. This book will recount the entire story of Take That, from their very beginnings to the present day. "Take That - Then and Now" gives a complete history of the band, with revelations on what's happened over the band's time together, and apart. Formed in Manchester in the early '90s, everyone had their Take That favourite, from the cheeky Robbie to talented Gary Barlow. Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange completed the group, and they went from strength to strength with their unique mix of high energy dance tunes and soulful ballads. The group had their UK breakthrough single with "It Only Takes A Minute", while their album "Take That And Party", debuted at number 5 in the UK album charts. Other hits over the years included "A Million Love Songs", "Could It Be Magic", "Pray", "Relight My Fire", featuring Lulu, and "Everything Changes". This book will recount what went on behind the scenes during all those years, and will have first-hand interviews from the people who helped create the Take That Phenomenon. When the band split up The Samaritans set up telephone help lines to counsel distraught fans, and the news made the headlines. But now they're back and about to embark on a sell-out tour that will delight their faithful fans. This book will celebrate their years both in and out of the limelight, and is the perfect gift for any fan.
