The Beatles’ Story on Capitol Records – Digital Edition

NOW AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!
The revised and expanded digital edition of the Capitol album book is over 550 pages and features much additional information and tons of new images. The two chapters on the Butcher and Trunk covers appearing on the YESTERDAY AND TODAY album put together 99% of the jig-saw puzzle mystery behind the covers. You will learn the true story behind how these covers came about and see pictures of Bob Whitaker at work during the two photo sessions that produced the pictures used on the covers. 498 Productions has licensed all of the significant pictures from the infamous Butcher session plus a series of revealing images from the Trunk photo session that took place at Brian Epstein’s office. These chapters alone are worth the price of admission. In addition, the digital book contains original art work from several albums, including an alternate design for BEATLES ’65 and the uncropped picture that was used for the cover of BEATLES VI.
