Spencer Leigh has succeeded in conveying the spirit of the period with great accuracy. He writes in an authentic, sensitive, and honest manner, as though he had been there himself-and all with a good touch of British humor. This is not only the story of the Beatles in Hamburg-it is also a historical document of an era that left a lifelong impression on people like me and the Beatles. Not only does the book take you back, it also shows you more about this vital phase in the Beatles’ career than we’ve ever seen before. Creative Loafing Tampa.

When the fledgling Beatles went to Hamburg in 1960, they had no idea that their world-and music-was going to change forever. Associating with gangsters and prostitutes and sleeping in appalling conditions behind a cinema screen, the Beatles pounded out beat music in strip clubs and dens of vice like the Indra, the Kaiserkeller, the Top Ten, and the Star-Club.

When the Beatles went to Hamburg in 1960, in the company of gangsters and prostitutes they changed their sound, wore black leather, lost their bass player, sacked their drummer, developed a vast repertoire of raucous rock ’n’ roll songs, and fashioned a new hairstyle. No part of this excerpt may be reproduced or printed without permission in writing from the publisher. The people in Hamburg feel separate from Germany and also from Saxony or Bavaria. They won’t say, ‘We are German.

When the fledgling Beatles went to Hamburg in 1960, they had no idea that their world--and music--was going to change forever. Associating with gangsters and prostitutes and sleeping in appalling conditions behind a cinema screen, the Beatles pounded out beat music in strip clubs and dens of vice like the Indra, the Kaiserkeller, the Top Ten, and the Star-Club. In the process, they changed their way of playing, got arrested and deported, wore black leather, lost their bass player, sacked their drummer,

Having visited the Reeperbahn in Hamburg on my "Beatles pilgrimage" in 2007 (my retirement present to myself), I thought that I knew most of the story of the early Beatles adventures. But I was wrong: I was most impressed with the wealth of information in Leigh's excellent book. Sure, many fans know the big stories, but the interviews with Tony Sheridan, Gerry Marsden, Kingsize Taylor, and several of the German students and club folks add zest to the whole adventure. The photos are also well presented and include many that are not found in most "Hamburg reports." Having previously read Leigh's book on the Cavern Club, which is essentially a diary, I was not expecting such a solid, informative, and well written treatment of this critical period. This book not only covers the Beatles, but also tells the story of some of the other Merseyside and other Brit groups bringing their unique sound to Germany. I also love the "coffee table" quality of the paperback issue.

As an American, when I saw the Beatles Anthology in the 90s, it made me realize there was more than a year of Beatlemania that I never witnessed, from when Ringo joined in late '62, until the group's appearance on Ed Sullivan in February 1964. With the publication of The Beatles in Hamburg, it brought to life the days that led up to Beatlemania, their testing ground days in Hamburg, when they were forged into the musical force they became.

And, I learned the name of a 7th Beatle. Not John, Paul, George, Ringo, Pete, or Stuart. Someone who played a few gigs with them in Liverpool when they were called The Beatles. I'll let you find out that bit of trivia.

Very informative, and in an easy, entertaining format.

Yes, it arrived in timely fashion, I am looking forward to giving the book as a Christmas gift to family members who are Beatle fans.

At last, a book that deals with one of the most exciting chapters in the Beatles long history. This book is a great blend of text and pictures, many of which have not been seen before. Although there aren't any new Beatles interviews, there are plenty of quotes and stories from other Liverpool bands who shared the stages of Hamburg. This is an excellent book about the period in the Beatles history that, more than any other, helped shape them into the greatest band ever.

Fast service - great product ... just as advertised. Not too much new in the way of information but great pictures and story lines.

It brought to light so much I didn't know.
Good book for hard core Beatle fans.
