The Beatles. Without a doubt the most famous band of all time. The popularity of the Fab Four has given John, Paul, George and Ringo mythical status. However, the myth is not always in line with reality, as music journalist Dennis Dekker shows in his book Bij The Beatles in the studio.
For this book, Dekker listened to dozens of hours of audio material from the Get Back sessions, which took place from January 2 to 31, 1969 in London. Dekker's meticulous and always fascinating personal description of these infamous rehearsal sessions provides a special picture of the Beatles in the last months of their existence.

In The Beatles in the Studio you can read, among other things, how the balance of power was within the Fab Four in 1969

  I'll play whatever you want, Paul

and how the Beatles felt about competitors like the Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin and Simon & Garfunkel.

  'I watched Tom Jones. He's a complete tragedy '

Dekker also convincingly punctures the myth that the recordings of the Get Back sessions only show a 'band-in-dissolution'.

  'Do you wanna do it once more then? Yes. Yes, yes! '

The main role in this book is, of course, the music of the Beatles. The author manages to let the reader experience the growth process of several well-known Beatles songs (Let It Be, Get Back, I Me Mine, I've Got A Feeling and For You Blue). The Fab Four also play various covers. All this makes At The Beatles in the studio a must for every music lover.
