I received Henry Grossman's book, Places I Remember - My Time With the Beatles ($495 for the Standard edition plus reasonable shipping), a couple of weeks ago and am still completely mesmerized by it! As a life long Beatles fan it's far beyond anything ever imagined or published before. I feel like I dreamed this book into existence. A few of these captivating photos have meagerly trickled out in various magazines and books over the decades leaving fans yearning to see more more more from Grossman's enthralling photo sessions. Now, finally, the wait is over.

This collection is so overwhelming it's all too much to take in at first! I can't recommend it highly enough to the hard core Beatles fan who loves intimate behind-the-scenes images of the Beatles together and with their loved ones.

Grossman first photographed the Beatles during their American visit in February 1964, but it wasn't until a year later while photographing them in the Bahamas during the filming of their second movie that he became an insider. -Of interesting note though is a rare photo that doesn't even include a Beatle. While the Beatles were staying at New York's Delmonico Hotel in August 1964 they met Bob Dylan for the first time and he did, in fact, as has often been rumored, famously introduce them to pot. Oblivious to the historic significance of the moment, until decades later, Grossman snapped Bob Dylan outside the Delmonico on his way in to meet the Beatles with his manager, escorted by Beatle's assistant Neil Aspinall (also a well known face to fans).

The book is organized chronologically with the month and year identified for each photo section and accompanied by Grossman's entertaining reminiscences for each occasion.

Near as I can tell, everyone who has submitted a one, two, or three-star review for this book hasn't even seen a copy. Every one of these reviews is a complaint about the price as set by Amazon Marketplace sellers. These "reviewers" slander a book they haven't even held in their hands to judge its value.

Shame on you.

If you take a few minutes to visit Curvebender's website, you will discover there are two different versions of this title:

* The Signature Edition - $795
(Hand numbered 1-250, signed by Grossman)

* The Standard Edition - $495
(Hand numbered 251-1200, no signature)

This is a limited edition title. 1200 copies. 580 pages, over 1000 photos, most never before seen.

Once they're gone, you'll pay whatever the market will bear. Right now, you can own The Standard Edition (from Curvebender) for $495 (plus about $18 shipping). For some people, that will always be too much, but that hardly makes this a rip-off. (What would be a rip-off is paying Signature Edition prices for a Standard Edition copy. Make sure you know what you're getting before you buy.)

"And so we have, for the first time, unarguably the premiere Beatles photo collection. It's a thrill to see and a feast to learn from - pure unmistakable layers of how it was." - Mark Lewisohn

After my initial shock of the price of this book and losing thousands of dollars after Hurricane Sandy of my Beatle collection, I took he stance of "you can't take it with you" and ordered this and the Sgt. Pepper book Kaleidoscope Eyes, I just received both yesterday and I'm speechless with the awe of both books.

Both books come in clamshells and each page is of heavy stock and the edges are silver lined. I have never purchased a book that comes with white gloves, so you know this is something special. Both books are extremely heavy so the best way to look through it is to have it on a table.

Forget the price because the photos are just unbelievable, I thought I saw every beatles photo in existence, but I was wrong. As you carefully turn each page, the page is more incredibly than the previous one.

If you are a true Beatles fan, you must get this (or both) books,

I felt the same way as the 1 star reviewers regarding the price which is not fair to give it a negative review because of the price, but trust me you will not be disappointed, and we are talking about "the four lads who shook the world".

This is a priceless masterpiece to say the least.

I received the book 2 days ago. It was very expensive but I am extremely impressed. The book is large and it weighs 18 lbs. Mr. Grossman is an incredible photographer. He photographed John F. Kenedy as a Senator and as a President. Rock and roll was not his thing when he took his first photos of the beatles. I still don't know if likes beatle's music but he definitly likes the beatles and they apparently liked him. The photos are amazing.

If you read a bad review of this book because it costs $500-$750 and they have not purchased or viewed it you are not reading a legitimate review.

I have so many Beatle picture books. Nothing like this. It's beyond huge. The craftsmanship alone make this an expensive book. It's worth the price. All pics are never seen pics. This is an expensive book. These pics deserve nothing less
