In response to Bluebookbelle’s Bookish Photo A Day Challenge – February 2015 #AWORphotoaday
My Big Book choice is…
…mainly because it’s probably my biggest book, in a physical sense. 35cm x 26cm, and quite heavy!
In 1995 there was a TV documentary series on The Beatles’ Anthology and a series of CD box sets released to accompany the programme. I bought the CDs eventually and was hooked! As a self-confessed music geek, I adored the CDs as they contained out takes of those famous Beatles recordings. Often with speech, laughter and general horseplay – the hallmark of the earlier Beatles – the out takes, isolated recordings, alternative versions and separate takes are a fascinating and real insight to their time in the studio during those heady days of the 1960s.
When this book was published, 2000, I had to buy it so I could pair it up with my Anthology CD packs. It’s a significant collection for me.
