Review:

'Recently published by Cambridge University Press, The Cambridge Companion to The Beatles is further evidence of their lingering influence on contemporary culture. ... if you are interested in the 1960s and The Beatles, you will enjoy this book.' Shane Creevy, Politico

'Before delving into this companion, one should have one's LPs, CDs, or iPod handy, because the music should be playing as one reads the book. Womack ... and his fellow contributors explain the social phenomenon of the Beatles (individually and collectively) and their music from the four musicians' pre-Beatles world, through the heyday of Beatlemania, to the decisions to quit touring and ultimately break up the band, to the individual careers of the four musicians and the tragedy that ended all hope for the longed-for reunion. The essays offer explanations of the Beatles' 'transformative impact on world culture' and their continuing success four decades after they last recorded together. Whether readers were there at the beginning or are newcomers to the magical mystery world of Beatlemania, this in-depth compendium is a must read ... 'toppermost of the poppermost' ... Highly recommended.' T. Emery, Choice

Book Description:

From Please Please Me to Abbey Road, this collection tells the fascinating story of the Beatles – their individual backgrounds, their major works, and their enduring musical legacy. Providing detailed biographical and album analyses, the book is ideal for courses and is also a must-read for all dedicated Beatles fans.
