At a recent record show I attended they had tons of those “Complete Music Guide” books, Andrew’s included, for only $1. I grabbed a Bowie, Radiohead, Elvis and Beatles, plus a couple more copies of Andrew’s book too. Make's a great stocking stuffer!

Would that be the "Vinyl Lust" show in Albany?? I was there too, and that's where I picked up AGD's book. But I didn't mention it because I think the 2 dudes there that have Omnibus books there may be doing something slightly underhanded...how could they sell all those for a buck apiece? And the other guy with Omnibus books had a whole bunch of hard covers, including great ones on Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, etc., for 5 bucks each.

Yep, that was the one. I also scored a DVD of Brian from Jones Beach from last summer (could be his best concert ever!).

And it was the current, 2004 issue of your book, Andrew.

As Bubba states, it is the 2004 version. Nice color pic of Brian in the summer of 2004/European Smile tour at the end of the photo section.

I finally got myself the 8/25/67 Lei'd in Hawaii with Heider 9/11/67 recordings on the same disc. There's usually some good BB/BW stuff there. Too bad it's once a year.

Interesting, seeing as that's still in print. I think Omnibus would be most interested to hear about this.

Revolution in the Head. That Beatles book is something very err....not..breezy. It digs deep into the songs and rips them apart if need be. 

That's hands down the best book ever written about music.

Andrew,

one thing I've wondered about: why do you refer to Mike and Al by their surnames, and to Brian, Carl, Dennis and Bruce by their first names? It's almost always 'Love' and 'Jardine', as opposed to 'Mike' and 'Al', which really annoyed me.

Other than that, I enjoyed your book very much. Of course, reviews being reviews, there are still plenty of instances where I'd beg to differ, but....

He can read messages here like any other guest.  He simply can't post a reply until he chooses to reregister here.  And no, there have been no other "Professors" here since the first one.

Very nice product, reviewing every BBs album track by track, in the context of what was happening in the band's/family's lives at the time. Agree or otherwise with Andrew's take on certain albums, this is highly entertaining. The original edition was the ideal size for me as I could sneak it into the smallest room each morning for a lengthy read. Edition Number Two however is roughy standard paperback size; if the paper were softer it'd've been the ideal size to wipe, but it ain't, so no more morning reads! Still, expanded to cover later and solo works up to SMiLE live, the new edition is a must-have.

It's okay, I mean it's a good reference but it's nothing deep. I still like it though, but it could have been more.
