Publisher's Summary

Derek Taylor's iconic memoir is a rare opportunity to be immersed in one of the most whirlwind music sensations in history: Beatlemania. As Time Goes By tells the remarkable story of Taylor's trajectory from humble provincial journalist to loved confidant right at the center of the Beatles' magic circle. In charming, conversational prose, Taylor shares anecdotes and reminiscences so vivid and immediate that you find yourself plunged into the beating heart of 1960s counterculture. Whether watching the debut performance of "Hey Jude" in a country pub or hearing firsthand gossip about a star-studded cast of characters, Taylor's unique narrative voice forges an autobiography like no other. 

Reissued here in a brand new edition with a foreword by celebrated writer Jon Savage, this long-admired memoir is a cult classic of the genre.

Contains mature themes.

Nearly ruined by bad narration.

Derek Taylor was a clever writer, but the million-miles-an-hour narration makes the book nearly unlistenable.

Quite alright

Interesting to know another insider's point of view. I enjoyed more Richard Di Lello's book "The endless cocktail party" but this one is ok. I don't think the narrator did a great job here.

Didn't float my boat or quench my thirst

Didn't like the narrative style from the first minute but persevered with an expectation that didn't arrive infact sent me to sleep on every listen, hardly anything about the fab 4, disappointing.
