We’re a bit slow in discovering this. There’s a new book released in conjunction with the Smithsonian and Grammy Museums to celebrate the 50th anniversary next year of the Beatles conquering America.
It features articles by Ringo Starr, Smokey Robinson, Brian Wilson, Lester Bangs and Mikal Gilmore amongst others, plus previously unpublished photos.
With the price of just US$9.99 (plus postage) it seems like a bargain and worth getting.
The book being described as a “Limited Edition”. You can order The Beatles in America online direct for the Smithsonian store.
I was at the Ringo display preview at the Grammy Museum last spring – it’s a fun display and worth going to if you are in Los Angeles.
