Présentation de l'éditeur

The Beatles: Illustrated Lyrics is the only major collection of illustrated

The Beatles: Illustrated Lyrics is the only major collection of illustrated The Beatles lyrics available. Originally published in 1969, this book has become a symbol of an era, a must-have for Beatles fans and a brilliant tribute to the band that changed a generation.

Quotes from John, Paul, George and Ringo provide candid, witty, insightful commentary on the songs and their origins. Clarification of controversial lyrics is offered by the only true authorities, The Beatles themselves.

All the famous songs are included – from Can’t Buy Me Love and A Hard Day’s Night to Rocky Raccoon, Revolver and Yellow Submarine.

Lavish full colour illustrations by internationally famous artists and specially commissioned photographs reflect the psychedelic world The Beatles lived in and the whole generation and pop culture they influenced.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 For the Beatlemaniac who has all their books... 2 décembre 1998
Par Studebaker Hoch, billythemtn@geocities.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
No reviews, no bios, just great lyrics and good art. This book was originally published during the late 60s, and so the art reflects the time. My only complaint: "Two of Us" is not about Paul and Linda (as the picture suggests), it's about the friendship of John and Paul (lines like "you and I have memories, longer than the road that stretches out ahead" make little sense in regard to Linda; Paul had only recently met her at the time of the song's writing, and he went on to spend the next 30 years with her). That aside, I say no Beatle library is complete without it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Illustrated Beatles Lyrics? Great! 5 février 2001
Par Ziggy, the Last of the Space Cowboys - Publié sur Amazon.com
"The Beatles: Illustrated Lyrics" is a must-have for Beatles fans everywhere. This book features the lyrics from most Beatles songs, each song paired with anadventurous illustration capturing the mood and theme/s of that particular song. Many of the illustrations are brilliant works of art, especially those for "Eleanor Rigby", "I Want You", "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Dear Prudence" and are great to look at when listening to the songs. I found the illustration for "She's Leaving Home" - a comic strip of the story told in the song to be ecceptionally neat. Some of the pictures are interesting to say the least: "Cry Baby Cry", "Blackbird" and "Tomorrow Never Knows", whereas others are just darned weird, such as "Dr. Robert", "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Within You Without You" - but hey, even some of the weird illustrations are fun to look at. Also featured throughout the book is a selection of fan art - all of it pretty good.
In conclusion, if you are a die-hard Beatles fan, you shouldn't be without this book. Sure, it's not for everyone (some of the art may be a little too much for some people), but if you love the Beatles and if you love poetry, by all means grab a copy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 BAD PRINT!!!! 17 janvier 2006
Par Huska Ivan - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am comparing this book to an older version published 1969 by a different publisher. As The Beatles fan and maniac I was literally hypnotized watching the pictures of Alan Aldridge, Peter Max, and others when I saw it for the first time. It so perfectly creates an image of the 60s and atmosphere of that time.

I was holding the same expectations for this version but it was a kind of disappointment to see the low quality of the pictures - prints.

Let's make one point clear here: This book is NOT about The Beatles lyrics, this is ABOUT the ILLUSTRATIONS-pictures to each of the lyrics that make this book so valuable.

You can download lyrics anywhere on the net for free so I was devastated to see why the publisher Mariner Books DOES NOT GET IT?! How can they cheat us in such deceptive way?! Hey, this is not fair really. People who buy this book are doing so mainly because of the pictures, not for the lyrics!!!

If you pay cash for something, it should have more value in it than the cash you pay for it. This is not rocket science and suckers just don't seem to get it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Visually captivating and useful in the classroom ! 14 septembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
It's very interesting to see how artists from around the world envisioned Beatles songs in their minds. Many of the songs seem to take on new meaning when you look at the accompanying illustrations.
As a former Fulbright Scholar teaching high school English in Korea, I also used this book whenever I taught pop songs. I would copy a set of lyrics and illustrations and then distribute them to the class. The students loved it! It made the song lessons much more interesting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fab Lyrics 30 août 2006
Par General Breadbasket - Publié sur Amazon.com
"The Beatles Lyrics" is exactly that, the words of all the Beatles songs written from 1962-1970, give or take a track. There's the #1 chart toppers, the B-sides, the album tracks, even the words for the songs the Beatles wrote for other people (like The Fourmost, Cilla Black, Pete & Gordon, Badfinger, etc). Considering most of the current Beatle album CDs don't have lyrics inside them, this book is actually a pretty handy thing to have.

Rather than being divided up by album, this book is divided into three sections: "Beatlemania" (1962-1965) "The Sargeants' Mystery Tour" (1965-1968) and "The Apple Years" (1968-1970). My favourite of the three would have to be the 1965-1968 section. Just like the music behind it, the lyrics are brilliant. I love the storytelling of tracks like "Norwegian Wood" and "Penny Lane", and the characters of "Nowhere Man" and "Eleanor Rigby". It is this section (and the Apple Years too) that could really stand out by itself as poetry. There's the odd lyric in the Beatlemania section too that would make really good stand alone poetry, but hardly as much. Still, it's all good.

The version I have (the 1976 revised edition) has some artwork of what appears to be George Harrison standing against a crumbling red brick wall with a green apple in front of his face. Kind of strange, actually. It also contains an introduction by Jimmy Saville (the 1974 editions onward) where he recalls an early encounter with the Fab Four just before they performed on "Thank Your Lucky Stars".

If you can get it, it'd compliment your Beatles CD collection really well, I think.
