Impossible not to like for Beatle-types
Fifty years ago, the Beatles released their debut album. So many commemorative books have appeared recently that it's hard to keep count, but if you're a fan and All the Songs: The Story Behind Every Beatles Release (Black Dog & Leventhal, 672 pages, $50) makes it onto your coffee table, chances are that it'll be the one least likely to leave. Music historians Jean-Michel Guesdon and Philippe Margotin dissect, discuss and analyze every song, from 'Please Please Me' (1963) to 'The Long and Winding Road' (1970). There's a well-written 'Genesis' and 'Production' section for each song, as well as enough technical tables to please everyone's inner nerd, not to mention 600 photographs.―People

Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
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.
First note: do not expect lyrics to the songs. This book does not contain them. I would guess there are probably complex copyright issues with the lyrics and rather than the publisher dealing with tedious and expensive legal spelunking, they opted to omit. Instead just google the lyrics - they are easily found online. Or many Beatles album jackets have the lyrics (I have all the albums on original vinyl, so many have the lyrics - not sure about CDs and recent releases).
The book does contain hundreds of amazing photos - awesome for fans! There are also oodles of trivia tidbits!
Each song has a page (or more) devoted to it - basically the story behind the song - why they wrote it, who actually wrote it (most were credited to Lennon/McCartney but were often not written by both).
The book is laid out chronologically, so it really makes sense and it is easy to locate specific songs and albums.
I recommend this book for any fan of the Beatles. I consider myself a pretty avid fan and this book contains a LOT of great content I didn't even know!
All the Songs includes a detailed listing of many songs from the latter years of the Beatles. Each chapter breaks down the individual songs on their respective albums. We're given recording dates, producers, which musicians were present and what instruments they played, where the ideas for the songs came from, and interestingly, which Beatle did not participate.
Previously I wasn't aware that Alan Parsons was involved with the Beatles at all. This was an entertaining journey down memory lane. I enjoyed this book very much and recommend it to any Beatle fan.
