Annotated Bibliography On The Beatles

Book Description:

Since August 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair looms large when recounting the history and impact of the baby boom generation and the societal upheavals of the Sixties. Scholars study the sociological, political, musical, and artistic impact of the event and use it as a cultural touchstone when exploring alternative perspectives or seeking clarity. This interdisciplinary annotated bibliography records the details of over 400 English-language resources on the Festival, including books, chapters, articles, websites, transcriptions and videos. Divided into six main subsections―Culture & Society, History, Biography, Music, Film, Arts & Literature―for ease of consultation Woodstock Scholarship sheds light on all facets of a key happening in our collective history. Throughout the 1960s, popular music became increasingly reflective and suggestive of the rising political and social consciousness of the youth culture. Examples can be seen in the development of the protest song genre within the folk music boom of the early Sixties and the marriage of lifestyle to music first reflected by The Beatles with fashion, followed by psychedelic music with the emerging drug culture. Woodstock was where these themes coalesced, thus becoming the defining and last great moment of the 1960s. However, Woodstock also represented an abundant amount of experiences and ideas and moments. Thus, when exploring the complicated accounts and numerous facets of America during the turbulent Sixties one discovers scholarship on the key subjects, such as the Vietnam War or the Civil Rights Movement, often considering and debating the importance, relevance, and epic nature of Woodstock. Multiple narratives emerge: a radical engagement of the hippie movement, an overt commercial exploitation of youth culture, a political statement. Woodstock scholarship does not stand alone as field of study, but it is at the cross-road of a number of disciplines―music history, cultural studies, sociology, arts and literature, media studies, politics and economics. Providing full bibliographical details and concise, informative annotation for each entry, Woodstock Scholarship is an essential tool for students, scholars, teachers, and librarians in all these areas, as well as for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of both the Woodstock Music and Art Fair phenomenon and of the confluence of music, commerce and politics.

A problem that RC’s book pages face is that they could be filled to the brim each month with assessments of publications about the Fab Four. They are endless. This one is different, however, and does a lot of the work for the interested reader. Brocken and Davis’ excellent and exhaustive effort tracks down around 3,000 written works about The Beatles – everything from academic papers to articles – and tells you exactly what they are, sometimes in considerable detail.

It’s all here: Hobbiss’ The Singing City, for example, is a 1968 article from a 1969 magazine; it’s five pages long. We find that John Lennon contributed a drawing and a limerick to The Gay Liberation Book in 1973. Evening Standard movie critic and paperback writer Alexander Walker wrote about the making of A Hard Day’s Night in his 1986 tome, Hollywood, England. The authors tell us what they know about each entry, be it several paragraphs, or just a title, author, publisher and date. A reminder of how extensive the Beatles-in-print industry actually is, this invaluable Fabologists’ research tool tells you masses about the band without conspicuously trying to.
