The Beatles Solo on Apple Records details the solo records released by John, Paul, George and Ringo on their own Apple label in America from 1968 through 1975. It tells the stories behind classic solo albums such as Imagine, Band On The Run, All Things Must Pass and Ringo. All solo projects are covered in matriclous detail, including all of the albums and singles released by John & Yoko and Paul McCartney & Wings.
The book provides complete session and chart information and shows all picture sleeves, album covers and label variations, along with many of the promotional posters, displays and trade magazine ads. The book is hard cover and printed on heavy weight glossy paper. It has over 900 images (all in full color or original black & white) spread throughout the book's 358 pages. The book is the followup to the critically acclaimed The Beatles on Apple Records, which covered the records released by the group from 1968 through 1970 and is still available from Midpoint.
(See also The Beatles on Apple Records by Bruce Spizer which covers the records issued on the Apple label in America from 1968 through 1970, as well as the Red and Blue hits collections from 1973 and the triumphant return of Apple in the nineties.)
Setting out on the long winding road to Beatle enlightenment and avoiding any pot-holed zebra crossings along the way........

Your feedback is welcomed. *First Hand Accounts books vary in quality but I have listed for historical interest.
