The book gives insight into the world into which the album was released in 1967 alongside behind-the-scenes photographs. A: The "A-side" is all about the Beatles, the music on the album, the recording process, how the disc was received at the time and how subsequently it has been acknowledged as one of the greatest albums ever recorded. B: The "B-side" looks at the state of the world in 1967. It covers the Summer of Love, anti-war protests, the Six-day War, the death of Che Guevara, the launch of Rolling Stone magazine, Jimi Hendrix's first UK tour as a solo artist - and many more events of global significance.
Fascinating photographs and text build up a complete picture of the world as it was when one of the most famous albums of all time was released.
