5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic., February 15, 2013
This review is from: Harry Benson: The Beatles (Hardcover)
Today, walking to my daily bookstore, i stumbled upon this big book. Intrigued, i asked the salesman if he had any information about it: immediately after, he opened the book to take a quick look. He was as amazed as i was to see, for the very first time, a lot of images from the boys at their best as a touring band. The Beatles On The Road: 1964-1966 is a pricey book but believe me, if you find a copy grab one. Not because it will raise in value (as it already has) through the years; not because it comes with good ol'Harry's signature; not because it's a Taschen book which, to me, is a symbol of design and art mixed together; but because the pictures are fantastic. We've seen thousands of them and, believe me, i have thousands of them in different books and in different formats but this...A photo is worth a thousand words and this book is a testament of how The Beatles behaved on their own inner circle: expressions of joy, sadness, boredom and having fun in one place. Benson you did quite a good job. Thank you for letting us see what they were all about on tour.
With 272 pages he covers their rise to stardom and quitting the tours. The pictures, really, don't need any explanation. Us, the rabid fans, know were the pictures were taken and when. But seeing the ones that didn't make it in the first place (as well as ones that have been seen throughout the world a number of times) is a joy. Specially in this HUGE format. In an era when i wasn't around (i was born in 1977) the quality of the pictures remains outstanding (even better than today's standard). I'm taking this book to my parents house so we, as followers, can enjoy every single page while listening to some tunes. Long live The Beatles (i wish more books were like this one). Go. Buy. And enjoy.
