One of the most recognizable, enduring, and best-selling bands of all time, The Beatles’ influence spans time, genre, and geography. Originally popular in Liverpool and Hamburg, their fame soon spread worldwide, and they enjoyed immense popularity in the United States.

Now The Beatles: Here, There, and Everywhere maps out the journey of this legendary rock sensation. Relive everything from the tentative debut of the Liverpool natives in Hamburg’s tawdry red light district to their innovative recordings at Abbey Road Studio. In this unique book readers learn about the Beatles’ famous audition at Decca studios, the flat at 57 Green Street, their American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, plus many other stops along their road to stardom. With full spreads devoted to each British album, additional notes on instrumentation and solo careers, plus tons of Fab Facts, this book captivates fans of all ages.

A unique way to explore the history of this legendary group, The Beatles: Here There, and Everywhere provides you with a ticket to ride on their journey.

I spent a lot of time with The Beatles last year.
Like a lot of time:
To a point where I could name all their songs. I don't think I can anymore.

It also gave me some bonding time with my dad.

Despite being overly familiar with their music for that short period, I wasn't too familiar with the group itself.
Which is what made this a great book.
It had everything broken down in sections so it was easy to jump into each story of the four members and flow along with the history of the group from start to finish.
