The Beatles - From Liverpool to San Francisco DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This new DVD is a pretty interesting look into the history of arguably the most important band in the history of rock music. To begin with there is a documentary of the band covering their history from 1963 in Liverpool to the end of the band in 1970.

The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour Memories DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This is a rather intriguing documentary. The video focuses on the filming of “The Magical Mystery Tour” and how the invasion of the Beatles changed the whole area where the group were working. Certainly this will be of interest to Beatles fanatics.

Review by Gary Hill
This documentary is quite similar to the From Straight to Bizarre documentary I reviewed last time. This time, though, the focus is on Apple Records, the boutique label formed by the Beatles.

The Beatles - Can't Buy Me Love: The Beatles, Britain, and America written by Jonathan Gould
Review by Steve Alspach
In the course of Jonathan Gould’s book he speaks about how few true biographies have been written about the Beatles – as a band. Gould lists four – other than his own.

The Beatles - Get Back: The Beatles' Let It Be Disaster written by Doug Sulpy and Ray Schweighardt
Review by Steve Alspach
If there was ever a band that was in need of a vacation, it was the Beatles in January 1969. They were in a 16-month slump starting with Brian Epstein's death in August 1967, the less-than-flattering critical response to the Magical Mystery Tour movie, and the PR fiasco of their jaunt to India with the Maharishi.
