After leaving Yorkville Diaries unread since 1984 and Quant By Quant unread since 1982, I now go all the way back to September 12, 1980: the day I bought The Man Who Gave the Beatles Away by Allan Williams and William Marshall.
It has taken me 36 years to read this book.
I bought it when I was fourteen and it has been on my Beatles bookshelf ever since.
By keeping a daily diary I can easily remember events from my life, but honestly I was such a huge Beatles fan in 1980 that I didn't need a diary entry to prompt my memory of purchasing this book.
My diary didn't record that on an earlier visit to the mall I had seen two copies of this book yet didn't have enough A very enjoyable read, I would recommend it to any Beatles fan Having known George and Paul at the time of the Quarrymen and the Silver Beetles (19581960) and one of the first Frenchies to be aware of their promising talent, I was curious to read about the preHamburg stories from Allan, my landlord Beryl's husband at Huskison St.
I enjoyed the narrative full of funny anacdotes from the Jacaranda.
A good exercise of memory for people in their seventies.
I read this book the first time in the mid 70's when I was laying out from school one day.
It was so engaging, I read it in a day.
There were details that were a little shocking for my age! It was quite an education.
The book shows them as they were, and their environment as it was.
TAke a deep breath and enjoy.
I am rebuying so I can read it again.
I was informed of this book by none other than John Lennon!But not years ago, just recently.
In the book, "The John Lennon Letters," edited by Hunter Davis, Lennon recommends "The Man Who Gave The Beatles Away" several times.
Lennon's letter to photographer Jurgen Vollmer dated April 1975 (Vollmer was a friend from The Beatles Hamburg days and the photographer whose work appears as the cover for Lennon's Rock and Roll album) states in a postscript:"there's a book coming out'Macmillan Publishers'its by Allan Williams (he took us to Hamburg first)it's all about 'THEN' Liverpool/Hamburgpre Brian Epsteinit's called 'THE MAN WHO GAVE AWAY THE BEATLES.
'Quite funnyand sad.
In a letter to journalist Robert Weinstein (dated, "june already" 1975) who had written John for confirmation on some facts regarding a record The Beatles cut in Hamburg, L For anyone who wants to learn how to incubate, then lose an musical empire; this is your instruction manual for such a boondoggle.
There are many antedotes of the Liverpool and German club years that some of The
Beatles' most diehard fans have never heard.
Lots of great gossip and a few rare photographs of the people who were there in the early years.
Not a great piece of literature, but many funny and tragic insights into the assembly of The Beatles from a man who supported the lads in their formative years.
And just when The Fab Four were ready to make an artistic breakthrough, he tired of the game and sold the rights to "RocknRoll's Golden Fleece" to Brian Epstein for a pence.
That is pretty much where The Man Who Gave The Beatles Away ends; at the beginning of what became the British Invasion and a world cultural revolution.
Hilarious the comment on the last cover typed by Lennon, saying that he doesn't remember many of the passages nor the people mentioned, but if you read the book, you'll understand why the memory loss.
A good portrait of a different age and places, told by a person who was deep inside this world.
