The Beatles to publish first official book in 20 years

From Loudersound.

The Beatles: Get Back, a new book telling the stories behind The Beatles’ final studio album Let It Be, is to be released in 2021. It will be the first official Beatles book released by the band since 2000’s The Beatles Anthology.

Featuring unseen images from Linda McCartney and Ethan A. Russell, whose photographs feature on the sleeve of Let It Be, the 240-page hardback book will include transcribed conversations drawn from the quartet’s 140 hours of studio recording sessions, edited by writer John Harris.

It also features a foreword from film director Peter Jackson, whose documentary about the album, also titled The Beatles: Get Back, will be released on August 27, 2021. Novelist Hanif Kureishi has written an introduction to the story.

The book will be published by Apple and Callaway Arts on August 31, 2021.

“It’s a joyous story,” says Callaway Arts and Entertainment CEO Nicholas Callaway. “It’s a very happy story about four geniuses gathering together in complete creative collaboration and making one last hurrah after changing the world through their music.”

    THE BEATLES What'd I Say (Rare 1965 Japanese wide centred 7" vinyl single on the red Polydor label manufactured by Nippon Grammophon, also includes Kansas City - both featuring Tony Sheridan on vocals and recorded in 1963, housed in a fragile flipback style paper picture sleeve with lyrics to both songs printed on the reverse. The sleeve has no mention on Tony Sheridan, however both labels do credit him on vocals. The sleeve on this release is known as being one of the most fragile manufactured for any Beatles release, this example displays some minor creases from handling & age but has no splits or rips. The labels are clean, and the vinyl remains Excellent with some light cosmetic surface marks and signs of play. A respectable example and the first we have ever seen DP-1429)

    THE BEATLES Meet The Beatles (1964 Japanese first Odeon issue 14-track RED 'Everclean' vinyl LP. Issued in Mono only & known as the 'Japanese Version', this issue has a different tracklisting to the US release. The silk laminated, scalloped flipback picture sleeve also has different coloured front cover titles in red & orange & Japanese sleeve notes on the back. The sleeve on this copy shows just a little light shelfwear, with a tiny bit of corner scuffing, but is otherwise in great condition & retains the original envelope advert inner & Japanese/lyric insert. The labels both have a lot of pindle marks and the vinyl, although obviously played, shows just a couple of light surface marks after forty five years in the wild. The rare obi-strip for this release is one of the most expensive bits of paper on the planet, so you will be relieved to know that it is no longer with this copy, therefore you do get some change back from your £5000! A nice VG+/EX- copy at a great price! OR7041)
