Say you wanna revolution well you know...
When Beatles Anthology was released in 2000 as a bookshelf companion to the CDs it was kinda pricey at $35. If there is one book about the Fab Four that I really wanted to have it was this one. And I had to wait until February 9, 2004 to own a copy.
That was the 40th anniversary of Beatlemania as we know it. Forty years ago to the day when they played on the Ed Sullivan Show. The cool thing about it in 2004, the price of the book was slashed to $19.64! 1964!
I got my copy at Barnes & Noble on 5th and between W49th and W48th. Same place where I stood in line to try and get a copy of My Life signed by Bill Clinton and it was worth every penny.
