    Truly fascinating facts about the best rock band ever...if you're a hard core fan that is. And by hard core, I mean REALLY hard core. Otherwise, you'll probably find this book to be pretty insane...400 pages of arcana about unreleased Beatles recordings and bootlegs isn't everyone's cup of tea.

    This is one of my all-time fave Beatles reference books. Although it's focus is unreleased material, it's extremely helpful to have material from the BBC/Anthology releases included to provide context. Very well done.

    There is more bootlegs than you can imagine, certainly more than I ever dreamed. Did anybody else know there were 85 CDs worth of unreleased material just from the January 1969 Get Back sessions [not a lot of it listenable.] The author is no fawning maniac; he can be harsh, but most of his views are fair.

    Too much While interesting to serious Beatle collectors and listeners, this book is the very definition of information overload. Also, Unterberger's overly colloquial style grates on the eyes after a few chapters, and this is a looooong book. Recommended for diehards only.
