First American edition. 1/4 inch tear to top jacket corner, otherwise excellent. 2005 Large Hardcover. 204 pp. Color and black & white photographs throughout text. The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions is a book by Mark Lewisohn and published by Hamlyn (a division of the Octopus Publishing Group) and executively produced by Norman Bates for the record company EMI. The book looks at each of the recording sessions held by The Beatles from September 4, 1962, shortly after The Beatles had returned to England from Germany, to their last one, on April 2, 1970, when Let it Be was re-mixed. It goes on to tell about what happened on May 8 of that same year, when the Let it Be album was released. It also talks about how The Beatles would seldom record together during their last months as a group. The book contains an interview with Paul McCartney and remarks by all members of The Beatles, except the ones that were dismissed before their first recording. As a matter of a fact, it merely mentions Pete Best a couple of times. Excerpts of things said during their recording sessions by George Martin, Phil Spector and musicians that helped The Beatles out on some songs, are also included. The 204 page book was first produced in 1988 by EMI in Europe, printed and bound in China and produced, also in 1988, by Toppan for the Asian market and by Harmony for the United States. In 2004, it was re-produced by EMI to be sold at other markets worldwide, and has become a great success. -- Wikipedia
