The Beatles: Anthology 1

Mat Snow, MOJO, January 1996

ANTHOLOGY IS RIGHT. HERE IS A SEQUENCE of snap shots that just so happen to have been taken in the six years from 1958's toddling steps to the height of global Beatlemania. Plus, of course, 'Free As A Bird', cut 30 years later still but based on an original sketch of 17 years before that. Anthology? Better make that Assortment.

Total word count of piece: 861
