Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
MacDonald's book serves a good purpose, collecting valuable information about every single Beatles recording in a rather concise, accessible form. It's a useful alternative to Mark Lewinsons expert, but rare and expensive "Beatles Recording Sessions" tome, and much better than the many books by others which deal only with the songs' words and concepts, not the sounds.

I only wish the many interesting chapters were less occupied with discussing MacDonald's social-historical main thesis, which is, in quick words, that Beatles music, and popular culture in general, had a strong liberating quality until around 1965, after which "Pop" tended to be abandoned for drug-fuelled and misguided "Rock". There's something to this thought, sure, but it's depressing to see it referenced as the prime aspect of so many beautiful Beatles records.

Dieses Buch gibt es seit 2000 auch auf deutsch. Es gibt (mindestens) eine 2. Auflage von 2003. Es heißt 'The Beatles - Das Song Lexikon' und ist bei Amazon im Angebot. Dort ist auch eine Rezension von mir zu finden. Die 5 Sterne beziehen sich auf die deutsche Ausgabe. Yeah!

This book contains interesting insights into the musical ideas and mindsets behind the Beatles' major recordings. Some of the trivia is familiar to most Beatles fans, but it's fun anyway. MacDonald's critical insights are also quite interesting (even if you don't always agree with him.)The problem with the book is that it attempts to do too much. The discussions of the music would be sufficient, but MacDonald insists on spending the first 30 pages assessing the legacy of the Sixties. Some of his views are interesting but he never really does much in the discussions of the songs with the concepts he introduces. Basically, this section comes across as a rather unfocused political statement. (Why bash Reagan and Thatcher in a book about music?) The closing segment dealing with his view that pop music has declined in quality since the 60's is more related to the subject, but not really relevant to the Beatles. (A discussion of why their solo careers seemed so much less creative and groundbreaking than their work together would have been much more interesting.) The timeline at the end was basically meaningless since the issues it raises are never really discussed in the book.Finally, the book has too many footnotes, one on almost every page. Nothing breaks up the flow of a book more than footnotes, especially when some of them are longer than the entries for some of the individual songs. Much of this information should probably have simply been included in the text.My advice: Get the book, especially if you're a Beatles fan, but skip the first 30 pages and get right to the discussions of the music. After you read the entry for "I, Me, Mine", you can stop reading.

This extraordinary book critiques most of the Beatles' songs. It dissects, analyzes and explains the lyrics of the Beatles' songs; it compliments the intelligence of all readers. Music professionals and novices alike will come away with added information; this is a book that will appeal to all readers regardless of place/proficiency on the musical scale.

This book serves as a time line; the Beatles' achievements and the times they were living in are chronicled neatly alongside Macdonald's analyses of the music. It's general tone is light and upbeat, yet a tone of bittersweet nostalgia underscores much of the passages. "There are places I remember..." John Lennon, 1965 could be the sound track of this book. So could John Lennon's 1968 Anthem of the Sixties, "you say you want a revolution, well you know we all want to change the world..."

Beatle fans and those who love and/or lived through the Dodge Dart Era of the 1960s will love this book. It is so worth reading.

This book's publication concludes on a sad footnote. Ian Macdonald ended his life on August 20, 2003. He had been clinically depressed.

Von Ein Kunde am 4. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This is by far one of the best books dedicated to one of the most neglected aspects of the Beatles: their music. Now, with so many bands (Kula Shaker's Shower your love and innumerable Oasis' "songs") emulating and copying the distingtive sounds of the Beatles, a book like this makes a lot of sense by analizing what was going on by the time songs were written, and in the best case, what was inside the beatle writer's head. I totally agree with another reviewer that, together with Mark Lewison's Abbey Road sessions, you'll have everything you need to know. Sure, there are inaccuracies, but what do you prefer: this fabulous reports or nothing at all? I can't wait to read the review with BBC and Anthology anexxes.

Von Ein Kunde am 7. November 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I loved reading about the origins, form and analysis of the songs as i listened to them, particularly. The paragraphs that describe each song are a strange mixture of contextual knowledge, musical analysis, and historical background all of which are enjoyable to read about - but in some places Macdonald is *too* quick to dismiss songs, at least in my opinion. It is good that the accounts are more objective than many accounts obviously created by fanatics, but I can find something good in every beatles song I hear, *every* one, and the author is a little quick to call certain tracks 'throwaways'et cetera. Fortunately this doesnt retract from a very good read, and can act as a good reference book for years to come.
