Bruce Spizer, a local attorney and internationally recognized expert on The Beatles, will discuss his new book, “The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine,” at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 14, at the East Bank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon, Metairie.
The book is the latest installment in the Beatles Album Series by Spizer. The book covers the songs and projects undertaken by the Beatles shortly after completion of their album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” in April 1967.
In the next 10 months, the group wrote and recorded the song “All You Need Is Love” for the Our World TV program that was broadcast by satellite throughout the world, and wrote the songs for and filmed the TV spectacular “Magical Mystery Tour.”
They wrote the songs for their feature length cartoon film “Yellow Submarine,” and recorded the songs “Lady Madonna” and “Across The Universe” before heading to India to study transcendental meditation in mid-February 1968.
The book covers these achievements from the British, American and Canadian perspectives, and includes chapters on the packaging of the albums and the writing and recording of the songs.
It also has chapters on how The Beatles influenced our world, the friendly rivalry between them and the Rolling Stones, The Beatles Saturday morning cartoons, dozens of fan recollections and more. The book has more than 150 images.
