Lewisohn's 'Sessions' gave us a great insight into the Beatles recording history, but too much was left unanswered.

Year by year, it examines in fine detail specific instruments, amplifiers, and other equipment used by each artist - from the pre-Beatle days in 1956-57 Liverpool, throughout the global Beatlemania of the '60s, to the group's disbanding in 1970.

Here’s the level of scholarship. John’s first Rickenbacker guitar is photographed as it looks today. There are a couple other must have or at least should have Beatle books: The Beatles Anthology and Mark Lewisohn’s The Complete Beatles Chronicle but Andy Babiuk’s Beatles Gear is the one literally breathtaking volume.

This landmark book is perfect for the fan absorbed by music rather than hairstyles for the tribute-band member with an eye for detail and for any reader with an abiding interest in the 1960s.

It's kind of like the musical instrument trainspotting equivalent in The Beatles world. The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions: The Official Story of the Abbey Road Years 1962-1970 by Mark Lewisohn (EMI Records) which is a day to day diary of their time the Abbey Road recording studios.

A fab way to learn about the instruments on which all that great Beatles music was created. From Paul's iconic Hofner bass to George's Gretsch Country Gentleman, all the gear is in there. That includes some of the more obscure instruments, too. Learn about the prototype Vox amplifiers the Beatles used as well as their experimentation with Fender amps. Not only does Andy Babiuk do a great job on the writing, Beatles Gear has lots of color and black & white pictures. When you are done reading, plan a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland to see some of the gear first hand, such as Ringo's Ludwig drums. You'll even know the official color if you read Beatles Gear.

Great stuff...always liked looking at the equipment musicians used (I was a baseball equipment manager in an earlier life) as it has long been an ambition of mine to have a room full up instruments (except keyboards) I couldn't play. Fascinating look at all the vintage tools of the trade even if some of the photos weren't the actual instruments they used. But a likeness is almost as good as the real thing. Really enjoyed it and worth every penny!

There have been Beatles books written by nearly everyone who ever came within a mile of the group. And many have been written by people who never even came that close!
However, Beatles Gear fills a void that previous books rarely touched on: the instruments the Beatles used. While this subject may only appeal to instrument enthusiasts and the most fervent Beatles fan, it does add something valuable to the history of the group. One feels Andy Babiuk really did his research and made an attempt to fully cover every instrument the band owned or played.
This book makes a nice suppliment to the "bible" that is Lewisohn's "Recording Sessions." The pictures are (mostly) beautifully rendered and many have not been seen before.
While this book is not for everyone, it makes the distinction of being a rare Beatles book that adds to wealth of knowledge already out there.

The Christmas present I never got--so I bought my own copy. This book meticulously covers a topic not widely known by a lot of people, even fans of the Fab Four. It's about time someone wrote a book on the instruments and equipment the Beatles used to craft their wonderful songs. The book is a must for a Beatlemaniac's library, those interested in rock music, modern musical instruments, and the recording arts. However, I wish the author could have hired better, more thorough proofreaders, as this edition had a few incorrect spellings (e.g., look for "Geroge" Harrison). In addition, I , too, would like a section that lists the gear they used on each album or song. Despite all this, it's a great read, but it could use a few more tweaks. Maybe the revised (2002) edition will do the trick?

Incredible very specific accounting for practically all of the instruments, amplifiers, pedals, microphones, studios and recording gear, (you name it!) that the Beatles used on every album and just about every song. A goldmine of important information for students of music and audio engineering. The author has provided an incredible service for posterity in compiling this book!

I've been a Beatles fan for a long time, have a few instruments similar to what they played, and am fascinated by the history and evolution of the music as it related to the instruments they played in their different eras. This book gave me what I was seeking.

This book was damaged in several places, but not worth the hassle of a return.
Very interesting reading if your are a Beatles nut....not just entirely about gear....lots of info about recording and general Beatles stuff throughout their careers.
