The Beatles' London

by Piet Schreuders, Mark Lewisohn, and Adam Smith

"Far and away the most interesting Beatles book ever assembled" -- Derek Taylor

They were born in Liverpool and came of age in Hamburg, but it was London where the Beatles became international icons matched only by the swinging city itself.

From the chambers of Abbey Road to the rooftops of Savile Row the Beatles are as much a part of London as Her Majesty, the Houses of Parliament and Hyde Park. They defined their times and this was their turf.

Authoritative, detailed and entertaining, The Beatles' London places the world's greatest group in the fascinating context of the world's greatest city -- the place they worked, played, and called home.

This substantially revised and updated edition includes special sections for record sleeves and film locations, additional rare photographs, detailed maps and scores of new entries.
