Author Bruce Spizer has created the ultimate archive of reference books about Beatles record releases. Each of his editions, painstakingly researched over years, are lavishly illustrated with color photographs and rare images. When editions from his library go out of print, they sell for upwards of $500. Spy Vibers interested in the topic should check out his books covering Parlophone, Apple, Capital, Vee-Jay, and Swan releases. Spizer is holding a holiday promotion on some of the few remaining editions he has in stock. Currently, the Swan edition is on sale for $22 (down from $50). Sale also includes free bookmarks and a poster-like end-sheet. It's beautiful, don't miss it! Sale ends November 29th. Details at Bruce Spizer's website here.

The Beatles Swan Song
covers all of the group’s U.S. releases on labels that had the rights to only a limited number of Beatles recordings.
It is the first book to accurately tell the stories behind the Beatles discs released by Swan, United Artists, Decca, MGM, Atco and Polydor. It also has an extensive section on Capitol Records in the 70s & 80s, which details the Capitol theme albums such as Rock ’N’ Roll Music, Love Songs and Reel Music, as well as The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl, Rarities and the unreleased Sessions LP.

Additional sections cover dubious releases such as The Savage Young Beatles and the Star-Club album, the high-end Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab LPs and the record club albums.

There are also sections updating the Vee-Jay, Capitol and Apple books with new and exciting information and images.
