"The Unreleased Beatles: Music and Film" is a mammoth 350,000-word guide to the incredible wealth of music the Beatles recorded that they did not release, as well as musical footage of the group that hasn't been made commercially available. This revised and expanded ebook edition adds about 30,000 words to the print edition, including coverage of all known material by the group that has gone into circulation since the book's original 2006 release. There is also updated information about the music and film detailed in the original edition, including the appearance of some previously unissued recordings on official releases. "The Unreleased Beatles: Music and Film" examines all of their unreleased studio outtakes, BBC radio recordings from 1962-65, live concert performances, home demos, private tapes, fan club Christmas recordings, and other informal recordings done outside of EMI studios that have escaped into circulation. Chronologically sequenced entries for all the Beatles' unreleased recordings of note from 1957 to 1970 are here, as well as all the unreleased Beatles musical video footage of note from 1961 to 1970. Also included are overviews of songs composed by the Beatles that were never recorded by the group, but given away to other artists; recordings known or rumored to have been made by the group that haven't yet circulated; Beatles compositions never recorded by anyone; coverage of music the group didn't release while active, but later put out on albums such as "The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl," "Live! At the Star-Club," "Live at the BBC Vol. 1 & 2," "Let It Be...Naked," and the "Anthology" volumes; and a history of Beatles bootlegs. "The Unreleased Beatles: Music and Film" is written with lively critical, descriptive analysis emphasizing the music and its most human, artistic qualities--and not just where and when the recordings were made. The book won a 2007 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Award for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research in the "Best Discography" division of the "Best Research in Recorded Rock Music" category.
