Scarecrow PressStill the Greatest: The Essential Songs of The Beatles' Solo Careers is a new book that focuses on the Fab Four members' musical output after the band's 1970 breakup. Author Andrew Grant Jackson delves into the stories behind many of the recordings produced by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in the post-Beatles years.
The 354-page tome also serves as a reference guide, offering details about the more than 70 albums and 900-plus tunes the four famed musicians created since their group's demise. Jackson recently launched a website, SoloBeatles.com, that features passages from Still the Greatest, suggested playlists for albums The Beatles might have released had the band not broken up, and links to Fab Four-related videos and news items.
RollingStone.com is posting excerpts from Still the Greatest this week, and is currently featuring a story about how a yacht trip Lennon took to Jamaica in 1980 inspired has reggae-flavored song "Borrowed Time."
