This monthly book is all about The Beatles, one of the most successful musical groups in history. The four group members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr formed the band in Liverpool in the 1960’s.

In 1962 they released the song “Love Me Do” but it wasn’t an immediate hit. 1963 saw “Please Please Me” and “From Me to you” released and the Beatles then started to hit the top of the charts.

The Beatles disbanded in 1970 but to this date still hold the record on the official UK charts for the most No.1 Albums – 16.  They also had 17 No.1 singles.

The Beatles Monthly Book ran from 1963 – 1969 and there were 77 issues. Content included history about the songs, fan mail, photographs and articles on the group members.

The magazine was revived in 1976-1982 with reprinting of original & new content.  New content continued until 2003 but then ceased after 321 issues.
