"The Beatles on Apple Records" tells the stories behind the entire Beatles catalog on Apple Records from "Hey Jude" and "The White Album" through "Anthology" and "Beatles 1." The book opens with John and Paul's visit to New York in May, 1968, to promote the Beatles home-grown business venture, Apple Corps. After covering the rise and fall and triumphant return of Apple, the book moves on to the Beatles records released by Apple in America, providing complete songwriting, session and chart information and showing images of all picture sleeves, album covers, labels, ads and promotional posters and displays, all in full color. There are three chapters on the January, 1969 sessions that eventually evolved into the "Let It Be" album and film. These chapters analyze and clarify this confusing phase of Beatles history and review the music recorded during and records released from these sessions. The book also covers the annual Christmas records issued by the group's fan club. The book has over 800 images (color and original black & white) throughout its 310 pages.
