The Unreleased Beatles
Music & Film
                 by Richie Unterberger


The music and film footage you haven't seen or heard,
from the most popular band ever

The Unreleased beatles details the incredible breadth of music the Beatles recorded but did not release, as well as film footage of the group that hasn't been made commercially available. Beatles expert Richie Unterberger examines a huge array of material, including unreleased studio outtakes, BBC radio recordings from 1962-1965, live concert performances, home demo recordings, fan club Christmas recordings, and other informal demos done outside of EMI studios.
The staggering wealth of unreleased gems encompasses the Beatles entire career, from a recording of the Quarrymen on July 6th 1957, right up to outtakes from the final sessions of Let It Be in 1970.
The book includes chronological entries for all of the Beatles unreleased recordings of note, as well as all of the unreleased video footage from 1961-1970 and outtakes from 1990's interviews filmed for Anthology. There is also a general overview of Beatles bootlegs, Beatles songs recorded by other artists in the 1960's, never-recorded material, and more than 100 photos.

My Comments :

First impressions are one of quality, as one picks up a very heavy, big thick card covered book.
Inside you won't be disappointed. The author goes into incredible detail on every outtake mentioned.
I haven't yet finished the book, but am finding it very interesting indeed.

The A4 sized book has 389 pages with heaps of decent information.
