The authoritative sheet Record Collector gave this book 4 stars: 'the final chord of a world band'. The Beatles now have iconic status. A remaster of Abbey Road even became the best-selling album of 2019 after half a century!

Hardcore Beatles fan Ken McNab shares with us the last year that The Beatles were active as a group. In the summer of 1969, the sacred fire flared up once more, only to be extinguished for good.

In that year we could put two men on the moon, but keeping four Beatles together was a considerably more difficult task. John had more eyes for Yoko than for the band, George didn't feel like it anymore and left ("Put an ad in the New Musical Express!"), Ringo was working on his film career and Paul, well, he was completely no longer alive, it was whispered.

But the moments when the four men were back together, they squeezed it Abbey Road out, an album brimming with original ideas and beautiful melodies. Many call this final chord their best record ever. Still, blood, sweat and tears seeped from the grooves as Beatle fans spun the disc on their pickups, because it had been a huge labor for the group!

This book takes you back to the last year of The Beatles, a magical year when magical things happened. The year in which the troubled Beatles set themselves up one more time to make music history together.

investigative journalist Ken McNab of the Evening Times has already written a lot about the group, including The Beatles in Scotland. He has been a Beatles fan for a long time. Just like translator Michiel Blijboom.
