The new issue of Beatlefan is available now and includes my interview with Jenny (Jennifer Jupiter) Boyd and my feature on the Beatles' long-form TV appearances, among other wonderful things. Please check it out!

Beatlefan #244 concludes Al Sussman’s assessment of Paul McCartney’s solo recordings, and pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the release of “Let It Be,” with Bruce Spizer tracing the album’s evolution, Ken Orth looking at the creation of the album cover, and Bill King give it a fresh listen.
