What a totally groovy book! This showed up on my doorstep thanks to an active ALB spy in an unnamed public library. I was a young teen when this came out but I am sure if my library had it I would have checked it out at every opportunity. Maybe I did. I am rather old and forget quite a bit…
I think this particular book has done its duty many times over. The number of pages torn and mended (and re-mended) speaks of many circs. My favorite repair is a picture of John and Yoko that had a big slice/rip through it. Someone in tech services made a faded copy from another book and pieced it all together. I am figuring some Beatles fan got crazy and sliced up poor Yoko. This is a great item for any library music collection back in the day and it might even have merit today for those of us in a certain age group. I certainly loved trying my best to remember band names and songs. Test your memory with some of the pages.
PS. Since Davy Jones passed away yesterday, I thought it would be nice to put this post up today. Jones was one of my first tween crushes. Also, Daydream Believer is one of the best songs EVER! RIP, Davy!
