Coming up: "The Beatles Finally Let It Be" by Bruce Spizer

Out Sept. 4. Order now from Amazon.

The Beatles “Get Back”/”Let It Be” sessions and the resulting unreleased and released albums and bootlegged recordings are among the most interesting and confusing aspects of the Beatles recorded legacy. 
Bruce Spizer’s fourth installment in his Beatles album series, The Beatles Finally Let It Be covers the January 1969 rehearsals and recording sessions, the unreleased “Get Back” albums, “Let It Be” and “Let It Be...Naked,” along with American, British and Canadian perspectives. The book relies on articles from 1969 and 1970 magazines and newspapers to report on what fans knew about the sessions and the planned albums that were never issued, as well as reviews of the unreleased and released albums. There are also chapters on 1970 current events and music and film, plus a detailed breakdown of all of the songs released from the sessions. The fan recollections chapter includes stories from those were fortunate enough to be up on the roof for the Beatles final public performance on January 30, 1969, along with one from a fan on the ground.

Beatle author Bruce Spizer seeking fan input for new Sgt. Pepper book

Here's an announcement from Bruce's site - quick deadline! I'm a fan of his other Beatles publications and this should be a worthy endeavor, too.


Seeking your memories and photos about Sgt. Pepper!!!

To tell the story from the fans’ point of view,
Bruce is looking for memories from fans throughout the world
to include in his new book
The Beatles and Sgt. Pepper: A Fans’ Perspective, coming out in May 2017.

These memories can be from fans who bought the album when it came out, as well as younger fans who experienced the album for the first time years or decades after its release.
If you were living in a foreign country when the album was released: please contact Bruce to discuss the possibility of writing a few paragraphs of how the album was received in your country (reviews, radio air play, chart positions and sales).
If you have pictures of yourself with the album from 1967, please send them as well. We recently received a wonderful picture from July 1967 of three lovely teenage girls proudly displaying the album.
Obviously we will not have room in the book for all of the comments we receive, but we will do our best to provide a wide sampling of fan memories. We will also place comments on our website.
