We are proud to present this special 2002 "Love Me Do" Collector's Edition! Featuring many previously unseen photographs, this limited run of 1,500 hardcover books has been issued to mark the 40th anniversary of the release of The Beatles' first Parlophone single, "Love Me Do," and autographed by author Andy Babiuk! Even though their songs are known by millions around the world, only now has a book been published that reveals how The Beatles sounded the way they did. This lavishly illustrated hardcover volume is the first to examine all the instruments and equipment The Beatles used to compose, rehearse, perform and record some of the best-loved popular music of all time. It features over 300 color and black and white photos of The Beatles - many never before published - as well as prime memorabilia, including instrument sales receipts, manufacturers' ads, concert posters and more. The book's year-by-year format analyzes in detail The Beatles' entire touring and recording career. Beatles Gear was written by Andy Babiuk, a staff consultant to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a 20+-year employee of House of Guitars, and an advisor to auction houses on music-related memorabilia. Includes a foreword by esteemed Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn.
