Find out the tricks the Beatles used in the studio, their songwriting formulas, the music they stole from others and the commercial compromises they made to get hit singles. This volume also aims to get behind the personalities of the fab four. Find out what songs should have been McCartney/Lennon rather than Lennon/McCartney, about their inter-band rivalries and how John Lennon and Paul McCartney sidelined George Harrison's songwriting.

From the Author:

I decided to write Beatles For Sale, as none of the accounts of the Beatles music properly tallied with how I heard it or with how they recalled it.
John famously said that he would like to go back and re-record every Beatles song and referred to a handful as rubbish.
Equally no one had really tackled the issue of plagiarism in the Beatles music before and yet John, Paul and George have all openly admitted to it, indeed both John and George were sued for it.
I have only praise for Yesterday, Hey Jude, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Penny Lane, Something etc, but fans of Maxwells Silver Hammer and Rocky Racoon should beware.
Does this mean I do not love the Beatles music? Accepting someones faults is all part of loving them. A fanatic does not accept faults.
