“A splendid time is guaranteed for all!” Yes, the 13th Uncut Ultimate Music Guide is a very special one – a 148-page extravaganza dedicated to John, Paul, George and Ringo.
There are incredible interviews that we’ve extracted from the archives of NME and Melody Maker. The levels of access and revelation are remarkable, as journalists sit in on meetings with Elvis, travel round the States embedded deep in the Beatles’ touring party, or hear the confessions of Lennon and McCartney as their band starts, slowly but inexorably, to fall apart. Next to all these rarely-seen features, Uncut’s current team of writers have contributed in-depth new analyses of every Beatles album. The Ultimate Music Guide tells how The Beatles revolutionized music, revolutionized the business of stardom, revolutionized how celebrities might behave, and revolutionized how their audience might relate to them… We have, it’s fair to say, been working like a dog!
