The BRAVO-BEATLES-BLITZTOURNEEby Thorsten KnublauchPublished bywww.bravo-beatles-blitztournee.de (ISBN: 9783837097443) It’s easy to write a bookabout the Beatles. Thousands of them have and will be written in the nearfuture. But is it easy to write a book about just five days in June of 1966? Anarticle yes, but a whole book? I doubt it. Many books are just fillers, havenice pictures, a story by some limo driver, fans or whoever was present. Butthis one is a goody and a real nice addition to Beatle literature. ThorstenKnublauch already launched a great book in 2008 with "KOMM GIB MIR DEINEHAND" which he wrote together with Axel Korinth, detailing greatly every connectionthe group had with Germany.Sadly that publication was only published in German.The Blitztournee book is inEnglish so there are no speech barriers here and this is well researched forevery little possible detail. Inside there is everything concerning their shorttrip to their musical roots, and I mean EVERYTHING. How they came to Germany,why were only certain cities for concerts chosen, the seating plans, presscoverage, set list, the instruments, sound systems, stage plans, concerttickets,programs, opening acts, police films, merchandising and even a chapterabout the Beatles earnings for these concerts. A special train was availablefor the tour and here are all the known documents, including the menu plans forthe Beatles train, plus many more chapters which are great fun to read about.There are interesting facts about their short Hamburg stay including some friends of thepast. Also included are interviews and memorabilia of the people who met themfirst in 1960 and went to the 1966 concerts as well, plus great unreleasedblack & white photos of the shows and a nice colour part with reproductionof all known concerts tickets, not to forget the concert programmes and othermemorabilia (that cost a fortune nowadays - try to find them!). So if you carefor a well researched nicely written little book where the author put his wholeheart into it…here it is…I hope he writes another one like this. Harald Bartsch
