The Beatles' Recordings
A Compendium
by Steve Lambley
Spacer Unquestionably, the Beatles remain the key band of the rock era.

Although their official recording career spanned just seven years, the musical legacy that they continue to bestow upon global popular culture some 50 years later is immense. It is testament to the incredible power that they had in shaping the musical landscape.

Here, in a single volume, are the facts behind all their studio, television, radio and film recordings – dates; locations; take and mix numbers; overdubbing, editing and release details; and UK and US chart data. From ‘Across The Universe’ to ‘Your Feet’s Too Big’,
The Beatles’ Recordings gives details of the 314 songs that the Beatles recorded and released between 1958 and 2013.

Within these pages you’ll find details of:
  • the song, recorded by the Beatles for BBC radio, that was written in the 1860s
  • the only song – probably – to feature Ringo on organ
  • the song that was recorded in 102 takes over four days in 1968 ... and not released by the Beatles until 1996
