Author Info
Patti Smith
Originally a poet, playwright and rock journalist, Smith fused her passionate, free-form poetry with primitive, driving rock and formed the Patti Smith Group in the mid-'70s. Beginning with the 1975 album "Horses", Smith released a number of classic albums that have earned her a lasting reputation as one of rock's true originals. From her pioneering days as a charter member of the seminal New York punk rock scene, she has remained vital into the late 1990s: releasing records, playing live concerts, and taking an active role in political causes, such as the Free Tibet movement.
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.The hundreds of photographs throughout the book include rare black-and-white publicity stills, images of Beatles instruments, and engaging shots of the musicians in-studio.All the Songs is the must-have Beatles book for the any true Beatles fan.
