Boxed Gift Book
The Beatles caused revolution after revolution. Not content with changing the face of youth and popular culture, they also transformed the face of popular music, launching it into their own, original stratosphere, using electronica, Eastern influences, and some darn fine rock 'n' roll. Treasures of The Beatles tells the story of the Fab Four as never before. It shows in beautiful photographs and rare facsimile documents the group's journey from the backstreets of Liverpool and Hamburg to their sell-out concerts in Shea Stadium and their quest for musical perfection. In 1964 half the population of the USA watched the boys play live on The Ed Sullivan Show and 400 million TV viewers saw the record "All You Need Is Love" in 1967. They were awarded MBEs by Queen Elizabeth II, they jammed with Elvis and sold millions of records all over the world.
Treasures of The Beatles takes you as close as you can get to that wild ride that defined a decade and changed the world...
