DRUGS, DIVORCE and a SLIPPING IMAGE - The Complete, Unauthorized Story of The Beatles' 'Get Back' Sessions - by Doug Sulpy with Ray Schweighardt New, completely revised edition! This new volume isn t just a compilation of material from the 1994 book Drugs, Divorce and a Slipping Image (also later published as 'Get Back') and 'The 910's Guide To The Beatles Outtakes Part Two: The Complete Get Back Sessions' (2001). I've re-listened to the entire canon of available Get Back session tapes, come up with a bunch of new conclusions (and even a handful of new identifications!), and pretty much re-written half the book from scratch. In addition, great effort has been made to improve readability of the book. Songs have now been put into groups (generally by Nagra reel, or series of them), rather than describing each performance separately, as was done in the original. In every way, this is the book we wished we could have written in 1994.
Doug Sulpy is recognized worldwide as perhaps the world s premier expert on unreleased Beatles recordings, having authored (or co-authored) a number of highly respected books on popular music, edited/published The 910 magazine for many years, contributed to several leading music publications and written liner notes for several CD compilations.
