Revolution in the Head: The Beatles

Ian MacDonald

Completely revised and updated edition of the seminal work on the Beatles – a must-have for all fans.

Hailed by the NME as ‘the best book that’s ever been written on the Beatles’, the first edition of REVOLUTION IN THE HEAD was published in 1994, to unparalleled acclaim but before the latest discovery of the missing Beatles tapes, now available on EMI.

Updated to include every single known Beatles track, this new edition now offers a detailed examination of all the songs the Fab Four ever wrote, putting them into their musical, cultural and social context with a brilliance of perception rarely brought to a popular culture subject.

‘Gripping stuff… an astonishing achievement. Really, you have to read it. It’s the most sustainedly brilliant piece of pop criticism and scholarship for years. Authoritative, loving, intelligent and absolutely essential’ Q
