The reviewers said the original texts were comprehensive... useful... informative... insightful... funny and occasionally exasperating...

but let's face it – they were BIG. And HEAVY. Old school.

And out-of-print.


 So... with great fanfare, The Beatle Works has entered the 21st Century and presents the first two original volumes of 'The Bib' in ebook format!


The original volumes with thousands of books, articles, special issue magazines, and songbooks –

annotated and cross-referenced.

The Beatles checking  out 'The Bib'!

We are heartbroken by the loss of our friend, Mary-Lu Zahalan, who was the first to earn a Master's degree from the first graduate program focusing on the musical and cultural impact of The Beatles – and she did it with Honors!
Her outstanding dissertation focused on the story of how The Beatles 'broke' in Canada first – before their more well-known debut on The Ed Sullivan Show on
9 February 1964.
It is a 'hidden history' that deserves to be told for a thorough understanding and context of the extraordinary months that took the group from national recognition in Britain to the international stage.
