Share Article

This companion volume to the 27 chart topping hits found on the Beatles 1 CD allows you to see, through beautifully rendered and vividly colored Song Maps, how the Four Lads from Liverpool arranged their music, and especially, their brilliant vocal harmonies.

By blasting beautiful and rich Everly Brothers–style harmonies through a high-energy jet engine of Little Richard rock ’n’ roll and Smokey Robinson soul, the Beatles created the most infectiously irresistible popular music the world may ever know.

Listening to the songs on the 1 CD while looking at this book is like hearing the Beatles again for the first time.

Whether you're a long-time baby boomer Beatles fan, a younger newcomer, or somewhere in between, this book will give you an entirely new appreciation for the most amazing band ever.

Along with each song map are detailed descriptions of the song, back stories, recording and release dates, charting, what was going on in the Beatles' lives, as well as the author's personal reflections and memories.

An additional Chord Palettes section uses the idea of an artist's colorful palette applied to sets of chords, to show how the Beatles combined different genres, namely bluesy rock n roll and sentimental pop, in the same songs.

While many books on the Beatles' music are geared towards professionals, this book is for fans and musicians with little or no formal understanding of music theory. By using simple explanations and colorful diagrams and graphics, the basics of harmony and chords are made easy to understand.

Also covered: How the Beatles and their music changed over time, their roots in Liverpool's Mersey Beat and in the rich mixture of black and white elements in American popular music, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the British Invasion, and more.
