French musician Guesdon and music writer Margotin take an exhaustive look at the Beatles' repertoire in the meticulously researched title. Arranged chronologically by album, the book includes for each song basic information (songwriter, track length, number of takes, etc.), a brief discussion of how it was written and recorded, and an overall assessment. While the authors include thorough technical details about sound engineering and production, numerous anecdotes and quotations from the group keep the book entertaining and accessible even to more casual music fans. The design further enhances the title's appeal: yellow boxes with trivia for Beatles fanatics are interspersed throughout, and an arrary of photographs features images of the group over the course of their career. Biographical information is incorporated where relevant; however, the emphais here is on the group as they functioned within the studio, and readers will come away with a rich and rewarding appreciation of the Fab Four's innovative and evolving work. VERDICT Although some of the content may be familiar to die-hard Beatles aficionados, most pop music fans will enjoy this engaging and comprehensive guide. Highly recommended.--Mahnaz Dar "Library Journal "



Every album and every song ever released by the Beatles—from "Please Please Me" (U.S. 1963) to "The Long and Winding Road" (U.S. 1970)—is dissected, discussed, and analyzed by two music historians in this lively and fully illustrated work.

All the Songs delves deep into the history and origins of the Beatles and their music. This first-of-its-kind book draws upon decades of research, as music historians Margotin and Guesdon recount the circumstances that led to the composition of every song, the recording process, and the instruments used.

Here, we learn that one of John Lennon's favorite guitars was a 1958 Rickenbacker 325 Capri, which he bought for £100 in 1960 in Hamburg, Germany. We also learn that "Love Me Do," recorded in Abbey Road Studios in September 1962, took 18 takes to get right, even though it was one of the first songs John and Paul ever wrote together. And the authors reveal that when the Beatles performed "I Want to Hold Your Hand" on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, John's microphone wasn't turned on, so viewers heard only Paul singing.

All the Songs is the must-have Beatles book for the any true Beatles fan.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The "Greatest Bits" 19. Oktober 2013
Von Barry Kesten - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
What I mean is, that this massive (heavy!) book takes the "greatest bits of info" from the Lewisohn, Babiuk, Ryan/Kehew books, as well as previously published interviews by the Beatles and associates, recording anomalies (readily available on several internet sites) and puts them together under one cover (primary songwriter, instrument/vocal credit, dates/mixing/studio location and personnel, specific instruments used, the Anthology series audio material and additional background info). The authors DO give credit to these various sources whenever necessary and present it in a well-organized format. You will not see photos of the EMI recording boxes nor photos of every single instrument used, however there is certainly enough visual material to make the book a valuable tool covering the studio career of the Beatles. I also give them credit for the using "?" when information has not been 100% verified (i.e. who actually played the 12-string part on "Every Little Thing"). I appreciate this "when in doubt..." approach.

I'd really give this book 4-1/2 stars, but not 5, due to the fact that the previously published books (mentioned above) contained much of this info. What I WILL say, is that this will now by my main go-to source for the the Beatles studio session information. It also stands on its own and is well-written. It's now a matter of justifying the price, but I have no regrets purchasing this book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle version omits all photos!?!? 8. Februar 2014
Von John Newton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you fell in love with the print version, as I did, but were waiting for the Kindle version so you wouldn't have to lug around that giant physical book be warned that the Kindle version has NONE of the great photos found in the print version. I have no issue with the text but the omission of the graphics is unacceptable. I've just requested a refund and ordered the physical book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen All the Songs: The Story Behind Every Beatles Release 8. Dezember 2013
Von S Riaz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Subtitled, “The story behind every Beatles release” this is a HUGE volume (nearly 700 pages) – a virtual treasure trove of information and an obvious labour of love. Much of the information contained in this book has been made available before, in works such as The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, but this is a great collation of information nevertheless and it is well laid out and clearly designed. Another minus point is that the book deals solely with every Beatles release, so does not cover songs they did not put out on record. However, the pluses of this book more than make up for the minuses.

This is a more of a coffee table book than anything else, ideal to dip into. It lists, comprehensively and with great detail all the album and single recording sessions – using UK releases as the basis for the book, but also mentioning American releases (often different, especially in the early years). This mammoth read takes us from Love Me Do to You Know My Name (Look Up the Number). Each release has copious details; for example the chapter on the album Help! lists when it was released, where it charted and for how long, singles taken from it, the background to the album, instruments used, the genesis of the work, production and technical details for each track. There are also lots of interesting snippets, such as songs that were discarded, singles released and even explanations for all sorts of tiny noises in the background and who made them.

Of course, any book on the Beatles recording sessions must contain information on both Abbey Road studios and George Martin, who did so much to translate the Beatles visions into recorded music. Nick Mason, of Pink Floyd, said, “every time the Beatles worked at Abbey Road, the atmosphere of the studios was transformed. You could feel their presence.” Although their last recording session there was in 1970, their presence, and influence, is still felt – both at Abbey Road and in the world of music. If you are interested in how that music was made, then this is the book for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen HEAVY volume of info and PHOTOS for the Beatles fan – not necessary for those who own “every other Beatles book” 21. November 2013
Von Steven I. Ramm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I knew when I had finished reading this this Six-pound (!) book (that you can also use to flatten any old Beatles – or other – warped Lp records), and was ready to post my review, I’d be faced by other reviews from Beatles fans more knowledgeable then me. I was in college by the time the four “lads from Liverpool” hit the US on radio, then TV and finally on tour. I loved there music, and still do, but I’m not as immersed as some. So, knowing that going in, here is my take on this book.

Yes, there is lots of info here but it’s not in a dry “discographical” format. This book does borrow from other books but – as is pointed out by others – it puts it in one place and, honestly, there are folks – like me – who don’t have the other books. Oh yes, cost was mentioned. Though it has a list price of $50., Amazon is selling(as I write this) at $30. With shipping included. Priced Media rate shipping lately. Postage has to be nearly $5.00.

Next, the book has photos and illustrations – LOTS of them. This could be considered a colorful “Art” book or what many call a “coffee table book”. Now I will say that the publisher used heavy paper (and the print size is pretty large) so the book – at 641 pages – is heavier than I’d expect for a reference book this size. Quote a few of the pages are full-page photos.

There is an index in the rear (of titles of albums and songs) and a few – but not many footnotes. I do agree with another reviewer that I liked that, when the authors/compilers weren’t sure of something they admitted it.
So, if you are a casual Beatle fan – or know one who needs a gift – I can recommend this book. Yes, it can be a reference but it’s also “eye candy” for the casual record collector who has a lot of Beatles material and wants to know more.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I had bought in 1989 The Beatles Recording Sessions by Mark Lewishon, The Beatles Recording Sessions. The Official Abbey Road Studio Session Notes 1962-1970 although engrossly informative I wanted to get an updated book regarding Beatles recording sessions. .Author Philippe Margotin does a great and honest writing of this immense book. Great informative book. Beatlemaniacs will have complaints about this book, as they do know mostly everything about the band. If you want a great companion for all your beatles vinyl old or new, your beatles cds, this is a great heavy book to keep as a reference to a particular songs you want to know about. I admit I was'nt going to buy it but after viewing the sample on amazon, it went quickly into my shopping cart for a quick purchase. Informative with great pictures if the author is unsure of something or had to get information from another source he indicates it in footnotes, An honest author a very informative book with pictures. This book does'nt contain any information on the Cavern recordings, BBC sessions or unreleased music. None of the just mentioned negatives take anything away from this book."All The Songs:The story Behind Every Beatles Release is true eye candy to anyone who lays their eyes on it, they simply can't help but pick it up, start reading and looking through it.
