You will not find a more detailed account of the Beatles' visit to America, nor the events leading up to it, anywhere else. Brilliantly researched, meticulous, and uncovering several myths in the process. Spizer is a godsend to those Beatles fans who want every minute detail of exactly how things happened. Regular readers will probably get bogged down in reading about "Love Me Do"'s airplay on American radio in 1963, for example. A primary source of Beatles history for those who care.
