The end of the Beatles wasn’t inevitable. It came through miscommunication, misunderstandings and missed opportunities to reconcile. But what if it didn’t end? What if just one of those chances was taken, and the Beatles carried on? What if they made one last, great album?
In Like Some Forgotten Dream, Daniel Rachel, winner of the Penderyn Music Book Prize, looks at what could have been. Drawing on impeccable research, Rachel examines the Fab Four’s untimely demise – and from the ashes compiles a track list for an imagined final album, pulling together unfinished demos, forgotten B-sides, hit solo songs, and arguing that together they form the basis of a lost Beatles masterpiece. He talks to Ted Kessler, author of Paper Cuts.Buy tickets
