Description Long and Winding Roads de Kenneth Womack:

In "Long and Winding Roads", Kenneth Womack brings the band's story vividly to life - from their salad days as a Liverpool Skiffle group and their apprenticeship in the nightclubs and mean streets of Hamburg through their early triumphs at the legendary Cavern Club and the massive onslaught of Beatlemania itself. By mapping the group's development as an artistic fusion, Womack traces the Beatles' creative arc from their first, primitive recordings through "Abbey Road" and the twilight of their career. In order to communicate the nature and power of the band's remarkable achievement, Womack examines the Beatles' body of work as an evolving art object. He investigates the origins and creation of the group's compositions, as well as the song-writing and recording practices that brought them to fruition. Womack's analysis of the Beatles' albums transports readers on a journey through their heyday as recording artists between 1962 and 1969, when the band enjoyed a staggering musical and lyrical leap that took them from their first album "Please Please Me", which they recorded in the space of a single day, to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the "White Album" and "Abbey Road" - albums that collectively required literally thousands of hours to produce. In addition to considering the band's increasing self-consciousness about the overall production, design and presentation of their art, Womack explores the Beatles' albums as a collection of musical and lyrical impressions that finds them working towards a sense of aesthetic unity. In "Long and Winding Roads", Womack reveals the ways in which the Beatles gave life to a musical synthesis that would change the world. Kenneth Womack is Associate Professor of English and Head of the Division of Arts and Humanities at Penn State University's Altoona College.
