|Beatlefan magazine uncovers story behind forgotten Beatles album|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Wednesday, 12/28/16 4:22 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
The latest issue of Beatlefan magazine looks at the story behind one of the least-known Beatles albums, "A Collection of Beatles Oldies."
Bruce Spizer and Ken Orth tell how the hits collection issued outside the U.S., and its colorful cover design, came to be. Plus, Brad Hundt looks at why another collection that was issued in the U.S., "20 Greatest Hits," didn't have the impact that the later "1" collection would enjoy.
Also in the new issue, Kit O'Toole offers an in-depth survey of George Harrison's career in the 1980s, and how he managed to reinvent himself professionally and stage a major comeback, culminating with "Cloud Nine" and the Traveling Wilburys, and Wally Podrazik offers an appreciation of the recent "Eight Days a Week" film, while Tom Frangione reviews its home video release.
In addition, Al Sussman weighs in on the fan debate over Paul McCartney's voice, and Rip Rense writes an open letter to Ringo Starr suggesting he reunite with a past creative partner (and not the one you're thinking of). Plus, all the latest news, including tour reports, and reviews of new video, books and recordings.
A sample issue costs $8 in the U.S. or $12 abroad. U.S. funds only. If you want the latest issue, be sure to specify #223. A year's subscription in the U.S. costs $34 for six issues.
