Like Some Forgotten Dream : What if the Beatles hadn't split up? Hardback



***'A fantastical journey through what might have been...

Exciting and compelling'-CHRIS HAWKINS, BBC 6 MUSIC'A detailed researcher and writer...

Ingenious'-RECORD COLLECTOR This is the story of the great lost Beatles album. The end of the Beatles wasn't inevitable. It came through miscommunication, misunderstandings and missed opportunities to reconcile. But what if it didn't end? What if just one of those chances was taken, and the Beatles carried on?

What if they made one last, great album?In Like Some Forgotten Dream, Daniel Rachel - winner of the prestigious Penderyn Music Book Prize - looks at what could have been.

Drawing on impeccable research, Rachel examines the Fab Four's untimely demise - and from the ashes compiles a track list for an imagined final album, pulling together unfinished demos, forgotten B-sides, hit solo songs, and arguing that together they form the basis of a lost Beatles masterpiece. Compelling and convincing, Like Some Forgotten Dream is a daring re-write of Beatles history, and a tantalising glimpse of what might have been.
