When one considers The Beatles' early history, there are several names that immediately come to mind, like Ivan Vaughan, Rod Davis, Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best. However, the story of the evolution of The Beatles from The Quarrymen to The Fab Four is about more than just the musicians in those groups. Other people, like George Smith, Joe Ankrah, Red Carter, Zancs Logie, Ian James, Marie Maguire, Colin Manley and Arthur Pendleton are all important to the story as well. These one hundred and four friends, family and musicians get a long overdue credit for their contributions to the musical development of the greatest pop group of all time: The Beatles.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Just when you think there can't possibly be another book worth reading about the Beatles, along comes another. This book has quality as well as quantity. David Bedford has excelled himself." - "Rod Davis, The Quarrymen"


"A treasure chest of research and a visual delight, this will prove to be a work no Beatles fan should be without." - "Bill Harry, founder of Mersey Beat"


"David Bedford, the contemporary scribe of Liverpool life, has done it again. This book, graphically supreme as "Liddypool," takes you closer to the way it was. This is the real thing by a man who knows the famed musical and social history of his city like few others. His pride in Liverpool is contagious." - "Larry Kane, author of When They Were Boys"


"David Bedford's latest Beatles book, "The Fab One Hundred and Four," is a delightful and essential read. Just when you thought everything's been said about the Beatles, and there wasn't much left to learn about the history of the group, David delivers the goods by exploring a whole new angle -- looking at all the people, some known and some hardly known, that played a key role in the evolution of the group right up to the point where they were John, Paul, George, & Ringo, on the brink of super-stardom." - "Ken Michaels www.Kenmichaelsradio.com"


"Check out "The Fab One Hundred and Four," a new book written by author/ Beatles scholar David Bedford. Exhaustively researched and illustrated with terrific (and rare) photos, the book tills the fertile soil of the band's early history by examining the Liverpool musicians who influenced John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr a culminating in the onslaught of Beatlemania following their "Sullivan Show" appearance on CBS." - "Michael Starr, New York Post""


5 out of 5 stars!"'The Fab One Hundred and Four' is an excellent addition to a Beatles fan's coffee table but also an amazing reference guide to the twists and turns, additions and subtractions, of the band's evolution from the Quarrymen to the final four we know as the Fab Four. Bedford, through his research, and interviews with each of these people, has shed new light on Beatles history and expanded our understanding of how they began. He certainly has given each of them their well-deserved badge of honor for the ages." - "Examiner.com"
