540 страниц. 2008 год. Vintage As dazzling as the decade they dominated, "The Beatles" almost single-handedly created pop music as we know it. Today, their songs are cited as seminal influences by stars like "Oasis" and "Blur". Eloquently giving voice to their time, "The Beatles" quite simply changed the world. Fully updated to include material from "The Beatles" "Live at the BBC" and the "Anthology" series, this acclaimed book goes back to the heart of "The Beatles" - their records. Drawing on a unique resource of knowledge and experience to "read" their 241 tracks - chronologically from their first amateur efforts in 1957 to "Real Love", their final "reunion" recording in 1995 - Ian MacDonald has created an engrossing classic of popular criticism in which the extraordinary songs of "The Beatles" remain a central and continually surprising presence.
