Un nouveau petit livre à signaler sur la période Hambourg.

Sans prétention mais avec pas mal de photos qui donne une petite idée de cette période souvent mal connue qui donna naissance à un petit groupe qui alignait les cachetons sans imaginer qu'un jour...

Bref, "How It All Began", comme ils disent.


The Beatles in Hamburg: The Stories, the Scene and How It All Began - By Spencer Leigh

"...This is the definitive, fully illustrated account of the crucial early years of the world's most influential rock 'n' roll band - and of the city that catapulted them to international stardom. It is the first book to recount the complete story of their experiences there- no other fully-illustrated book on the subject exists.
It is also the first book to be produced in official association with the Beatlemania museum in Hamburg. Features numerous fresh anecdotes and stories about The Beatles' time in Hamburg along with a wealth of previously unpublished quotes and interviews from those who were there at the time.

Features interviews with fellow musicians, business associates, audience members, fans, friends and family members involved with The Beatles during the period 1960 - 1962 when they were regularly playing in Hamburg and for their return Blitztournee tour in 1966.
Includes specially photographed items of memorabilia from the Beatlemania museum along with previously unpublished articles from the archives of various Hamburg newspapers. ..."





Two excellent books have some answers for you.
Liverpool Merseyside DJ (and, truth be told, a professional acquaintance of mine and fan of my band The Badge) Spencer Leigh's new book "The Beatles in Hamburg: The Stories, the Scene and How It All Began" is snappy and witty, with recollections from a host of musicians and assorted bystanders who really give you the flavor of what it must have been like.
They also give you an idea as to what Hamburg meant to The Beatles and the other bands who passed through: If you were good you became great. If you weren't you likely gave up being a musician.

The book is certainly authoritative, but even better is that it's fully illustrated with loads of four-color photographs and other memorabilia that really give you a sense of the place. Just look at the pictures of drab, bombed-out Liverpool and bustling Hamburg early on in the book and it's obvious that this is where it all really went from black & white to technicolor for The Beatles.
(Of course as Klaus Voorman points out in the recent George Harrison documentary, the Germans got down to the business of getting rich pretty quickly after the war.)

And at less than $15, it's a steal of a deal.

Apparemment, ce petit gars de Liverpool n'en est pas à son coup d'essai.
Plusieurs ouvrages et DVD à son actif, mais aussi un habitué des colonnes de MOJO magazine, Record Collector ou Goldmine... C'est aussi un DJ radio connu et reconnu sur les ondes de la BBC.

Résumé des épisodes précédents donc :


SPENCER LEIGH was born in Liverpool in 1945. Over the last 30 years, he has interviewed hundreds of British and U.S. performers for his BBC Radio Merseyside show, ‘On The Beat’ and has contributed to several BBC music documentaries.
His work regularly appears in such diverse musical publications as Now Dig This, Mojo, Country Music People, Goldmine, Word and Record Collector. He has written sleeve notes for, and often compiled, hundreds of CDs including two recent compilations of tracks banned by the BBC.
He writes pop music obituaries for The Independent and sets questions for many radio quizzes. Spencer Leigh is acclaimed as one of the country’s leading authorities on pop music and The Beatles.
‘Mojo’ described him as ‘Rock music’s most enthusiastic amateur historian’, Pete Frame has called him “the mad genius of the airwaves” and Bill Kenwright on Radio Two said he was indispensable’. ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ is his 25th book.








The Beatles In Hamburg was published by the UK by Omnibus Press in October 2011. It is a hardback book of 128 pages that are fully illustrated. Although my name is on the front, much of the credit must go to Chris Stone for picture research and Duncan Youel for design.
The book looks great and every photograph that I wanted in the book (and lots more besides) are included. Among the photographers are Astrid Kirchherr, Jurgen Volmer.and Gunter Zint. There is some new information in the book: for example, I didn’t know until I met Uwe Fascher (Horst’s brother) that the Beatles had played at the strip club, Studio X.

The American edition, published by Chicago Review Press, has a paperback cover. There are also German and French editions. Only the Omnibus edition is available through this website and copies can be signed and dedicated if you wish.




“Spencer Leigh has succeeded in conveying the spirit of the period with great accuracy. He writes in an authentic, sensitive and honest manner, and all with a good touch of British humour.” (Klaus Voormann)

“Incredibly well researched.” (Billy Butler, BBC Radio Merseyside)

"Snappy and witty and with recollections from a host of musicians and assorted bystanders who really give you a flavour of what it must have been like." (Jeff Slate, examiner.com)

"Required reading for any Beatles aficionados. It should also be fascinating for those intrigued by early 1960s musical subcultures." (Under The Radar)

Tu parles du musée, Max, pas du bouquin, hein ?

Tu connais le bouquin ? L'auteur du bouquin ? Un rapport quelconque avec le musée d'Hambourg ?



Pour répondre à JP, c'est vrai que le livre est bien fourni en photos. Il est très agréable à feuilleter, à le parcourir... Après, 'est-ce qu'il n'aurait pas mérité un peu plus de textes explicatifs ? Ou est-ce suffisant comme ça ?

C'est sûrement toute la difficulté de bien doser la proportion du visuel et du blabla.
Celui-ci est d'un format très réduit, et le nombre de pages ne permet pas n'y mettre beaucoup plus en texte. Peut-être aurait-il mérité d'avoir rien qu'une petite dizaine de pages en sus ?

Pardon j'avais merdé le lien, je voulais que vous arriviez tout de suite sur la page en anglais vu que vous êtes... français. Hum...

Non je ne connais pas ce bouquin mai le nom de l'auteur revient souvent, je l'ai beaucoup lu au travers de certains MOJO par exemple. J'attends de refaire mes bourses (et/ou que le prix baisse) et je me prends son ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ .

Oui, j'avais cru comprendre.

Mais ce Musée semble aussi avoir une place particulière dans le bouquin à en croire les nombreuses références...

Comme celle au coin de la couv :



Et aussi différentes pages avec des photos prises au musée même.


Tiens, voila la version française, au fait. C'est mieux, hein ?

Le même.

Après Hambourg...

On ne change pas une équipe qui gagne.





Mais bon, après, Hambourg, Liverpool ok. Et ça va être quoi ensuite ?

Le premier était pas mal du tout. Beaucoup de photos. Très agréable à feuilleter.
Plus de forme que de fond en somme. Mais, dans le genre, on y trouve son compte.
Agréablement surpris, pour ma part, donc. Et pari gagné pour ce petit bouquin sans prétention.

Gageons que Spencer Leigh remette le couvert avec autant d'efficacité.
Sortie le 1er novembre. Là, quoi.

En english d'abord.
French sûrement un poil plus tard.



Spencer Leigh, author of previous Beatles books on The Cavern and “The Beatles in Hamburg,” is out with a new book called “The Beatles in Liverpool”

Leigh's book is filled with great archival stories of Beatles history, much of it pre-fame, and how the city figured into the group's success.



Q: What was the most interesting new fact you found out in researching "The Beatles in Liverpool"?

Spencer Leigh: “I was delighted to find that Rod Murray still had the script of the “Cinderella” pantomime from the art college. John was one of the ugly sisters and also one of the authors.” (Note: A page is reproduced on page 56. Another of the authors was Stuart Sutcliffe, the book says.)

Q: How did Liverpool have a cultural impact on the Beatles?

Spencer Leigh: “The whole personality of the place had a tremendous impact on the Beatles. It is a warm friendly city and there was a whole infrastructure of clubs and church halls were the groups could play.”

Q: How did skiffle music directly impact the development of the Beatles?

Spencer Leigh: “Generally speaking, there is a big difference between English and American bands of the period. There was little money in England after the war and so skiffle groups using cheap acoustic guitars, washboard and tea-chest basses were the order of the day. By way of contrast, the Beach Boys were straight to electric guitars! I know Americans don't really get Lonnie Donegan but they should. He is synonymous with skiffle and the new biography by Patrick Humphries is warmy recommended.”

Q: It would seem that many of the venues, like the Cavern, which originally was a jazz club, became more rock oriented directly because of the Beatles and the other Liverpool bands. Is that correct?

Spencer Leigh: “Well, club owners go where the money is! Jazz was very popular in the mid-50s and then the beat groups started playing in the suburbs and soon they were in the city center as well. The jazz musicians and the rock'n'rollers did not get on too well, largely because the jazz men were several years old. John Lennon used to refer to the Merseysippi Jazz Band as the "old buggers who are keeping us off the stage". The Merseysippis were only in their early 30s at the time. Although they didn't acknowledge it, both the jazz men and the beat boys were doing their versions of American songs.”

Tiens, je n'ai jamais vu en boutique celui sur Liverpool justement.

Depuis le temps, on dirait qu'ils se sont arrêté à Hamburg chez nous.
Tu l'as vu à Berlin, par ex ?

Et il est bien ? Aussi bien que le précédent ?

Après Hambourg et Liverpool...

(50 Years celebration oblige)



Early in 1964, with Beatlemania raging in the UK, the Beatles topped the US charts with "I Want To Hold Your Hand," and became a sensation on American TV with The Ed Sullivan Show - on which they appeared no fewer than three occasions, on consecutive Sundays in February, 1964. In April 1964, they held all Top Five positions on the Billboard Hot 100 and were playing such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and Shea Stadium.

With exclusive interviews with fellow musicians, promoters, and audience members, together with rare photographs and memorabilia, The Beatles In America is the definitive, fully illustrated account of their concerts, the controversies, and of how the country dominated their lives in so many ways - written by one of the acknowledged experts on the Fab Four, Liverpool's own Spencer Leigh.



Covers all the group's North American appearances/tours in detail: their first two live American appearances in 1964, the first full North American tour of August and September, 1964; the second, short tour of 1965; and the third, 13-date tour of August and September, 1966 - with maps showing the cities they played on each tour. Describes how Beatlemania "broke" in Canada before it did in the US - and why.

Includes exclusive and previously unpublished interviews with key figures of the era, such as Del Shannon, Roy Orbison, Sid Bernstein, Cynthia Lennon, Bill Wyman, Roger McGuinn, Pete Best, Davy Jones and Peter Tork (of the Monkees), Larry Kane (journalist), Suzy Quatro, Tony Barrow, Alf Bicknell, Ronnie Spector, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, May Pang.





L'auteur (à droite) en cause :

Beatles author Spencer Leigh, whose previous books have covered “The Beatles in Hamburg” and “The Beatles in Liverpool,” turns to the U.S. with his latest book, “The Beatles in America” looking at the events when the Beatles invaded the U.S. in 1964 through interviews, pictures and vintage newspaper and magazine clips. We talked to Leigh, also the host of the BBC weekly series "On the Beat," about the new book in this interview.

Q: “What was the most significant thing you found out for 'The Beatles in America'?”

Spencer Leigh: “Well, I heard Paul McCartney at the LIPA graduation ceremony this year say that there were 100 people working on his current American tour. The Beatles U.S. tours were so successful and yet astonishingly few people were working on them, so the book is the story of a small close-knit group of people.”

Q: “How is your book different from other books on the U.S. tour?”

Spencer Leigh: “I haven't seen the final version, but I am hoping that it will be a very good mixture of pictures and text. There is a vast range of comments from American stars who saw that first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on 9 February 1964.”

Q: “How did U.S. radio differ from British radio in its effect on the Beatles' career?”

Spencer Leigh: “There was only the BBC when the Beatles were starting and they didn't play much popular music. They did have live radio sessions and the Beatles, like Sinatra in the US in the 1940s, wanted to do as many live shows as possible. They both realized that this was one of the best ways to establish themselves. American radio was very different and the DJs were ratings-driven, egocentric and gave the impression that they were more important than the music. The Beatles didn't like Murray the K calling himself the fifth Beatle. As Ringo said on his last visit to Liverpool, 'Fifth Beatle? There wasn't one.'”

Il me semble que le bouquin consacré à Hambourg a été traduit en Français mais qu'en est il pour celui sur Liverpool et sur ce dernier fraîchement sorti sur l'Amérique ?

Tanque illou !
