Liddypool, The Birthplace of The Beatles, the critically acclaimed book to concentrate solely on the history of The Beatles from their experience of living and growing up in Liverpool, has been released in its third and expanded edition.

Covering their rise from childhood in the 1940s and obscurity to their triumphant civic reception at Liverpool Town Hall on 10th July 1964, when the city said goodbye to the Fab Four, author David Bedford uses local knowledge and eyewitness testimony to chart every band member and name-change and lineup, from The Quarrymen to The Beatles: the real story of the “Fab 27”. 

Bedford, a Liverpool native and noted Beatles historian, has updated what is considered to be the definitive book describing facts and truths of the colorful, formative years of The Beatles, starting many years before they stepped out in suits and mop-top haircuts.

In its new version, which includes a new map and updated content, this gloriously, colorful new edition takes fans on a unique magical mystery tour through the Liverpool of The Beatles, while setting the record straight on many myths and legends.

With dozens of interviews with first-hand eyewitnesses to the Beatles story, this is the only book to concentrate on The Beatles and Liverpool. It also contains over 800 images, with a detailed guide section including over 100 venues they played, plus every home, school and location related to The Beatles in Liverpool and the surrounding area; included for the first time are North Wales and Chester.

This is a unique collection of Stories, History and Guidebook.
