Welcome to the Beatles
by Andrew Pregnall (ed.)
Publisher: VT Publishing 2018
Number of pages: 308
Welcome to the Beatles represents our collective contribution to the larger scholarship on the most important band in rock history. The chapters of this book build upon the Lewisohn narrative and take into account the recurring issues in Beatles historiography. The authors of these chapters are largely removed from the Beatles; we have the advantage of being generations apart from the band and can reexamine them without any first-hand experience with the Fab Four.
