Publisher's Summary

Based on the award-winning radio documentary heard around the world, and drawing on 30 years worth of exclusive and rare interviews, The Beatles, An Aural History is the first chapter of a three-part series. This is not just another Beatles' history; this is The Beatles story like you've never heard it before. These are the voices of the band, their family members, friends, and colleagues who participated in the events that were pivotal in forming Rock 'n' Roll's most important band.

John Lennon's former school headmaster recalls his pupil's first band and the trouble they caused. The Cavern Club's disc jockey recounts the dawn of Beatlemania in Britain. Picture these young men experimenting with what would become their signature hairstyle, as described by photographer Astrid Kirchherr. Revolver cover artist Klaus Voorman describes the thunder that rocked the Kaiserkeller in the heart of Hamburg's seedy red-light district. Back in Liverpool at 10 Mathew St., a regular patron describes the throng of sweating enthusiasts packed into the Cavern Club.

These are the sights, sounds and sensations of history in the making. The familiarity, the excitement and the surprises that accompanied these lads from Liverpool to Hamburg and back again is yours to experience. Witness the birth of the original rock 'n' roll legend.

    "A delight, with many surprises"

    The story is so widely reported and so well known, you may believe there's nothing more to learn. You'll be pleased with the scope of this tantalizing excerpt, and impatiently waiting for the other volumes of the production. Some of us will be sharing this with our kids, and grandkids...
