Review: The Beatles on the Roof

The Beatles on the Roof The Beatles on the Roof by Tony Barrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Beatles on the Roof focuses on the time leading up to and through the concert on the roof of the Apple building in Savile Row. The book discusses all of the major players in and around the Beatles at the time, along with how the decision to perform this concert came to be.

It is an interesting read even though parts of this story has been told in other books, interviews and documentaries. Out of all the things that Beatles fans have full access to, the Let It Be documentary in full is one of the few things that is still not within reach of fans for easy viewing access. Although there are plenty of clips, this book puts together the entire picture of what was going on during the filming and how this impacted the Beatles going forward as a band. Most Beatles fans would enjoy this book.
