Fifty years since Revolver was released, Uncut is proud to present a deluxe version of our Ultimate Music Guide to The Beatles. Over 148 packed pages, the whole story is revisited, thanks to an incredible cache of features plucked from the archives of Britain’s massively influential music papers.
There are week-by-week reports from those epochal American tours: one writer spends a day on Allen Klein’s yacht with the Stones (“Then Jagger played Bob Dylan’s latest single ‘pressed secretly for us eager maniacs’ and danced on deck in the extrovert style that identifies him onstage”), before heading over to Shea Stadium and the Beatles’ dressing room; another hitches a lift from Bedford with Paul McCartney and ends up having an all-night session with him in a random Bedfordshire village.
Plus, we have sizeable reviews of every album filed by Uncut’s current team of writers, amazing pictures, and a veritable gallimaufry of Beatleness.
“A splendid time is guaranteed for all…”
