A Book about The Beatles’ Revolver album has been published freely to the net under the Creative Commons license. I’ve only scanned through the book so far – but looks well researched. The idea of writing a book about an individual album is far from new, Continuum Publishing have been publishing books under the 33 1/3 series for some time and have been commented by quality music blogs like LargeHeartedBoy.
But to release this one to the net freely is a brave move; if only because if the author Ray Newman has got anything wrong then he may face the wraith of Apple Inc, who doesn’t seem to be too gentle with those who raise its ire.
But given the importance of the The Beatles’ Revolver album I’d recommend checking it out.
