Christoph Maus’ BEATLES WORLDWIDE (An Anthology of Original LP- Releases) is true EYE CANDY for Beatles fans. Although I already knew that several different countries had their own versions of Beatles albums (taking liberties with cover artwork AND song selection) – I simply had no idea that there were THIS many versions and enough to fill a book! …full article

“Beatles Worldwide II: An Anthology of Original Singles & EP-Releases” follows the same format as “Beatles Worldwide I” (which concentrated on album releases) by giving you an exhaustive look at the multitude of Beatles 45 rpm’s and EP’s that were released around the world. Of course the ’60s were a unique time in rock ‘n roll – not only for the music itself, but the fact that record companies around the world had a carte blanche to release records by bands using whatever packaging and song order they liked! As we saw in “Beatles Worldwide I”, Beatles albums around the world were released with some pretty interesting variations of not only pictures and graphics used and some bizarre couplings of songs (The Venezuela “Helter Skelter”/Honey Pie” single).

Die Zielgruppe: Sammler sowieso und Leute, die schon Beatles Bücher gelesen haben und nun in die Tiefe gehen wollen.  (NDR  90,3, Hamburg, 17.August 2010- Auschnitt aus der Sendung “Abendjournal”) 

“…Fazit: Christoph Maus ist ein Volltreffer gelungen, dessen Infofülle und optischer Reiz die Bestnote “1” verdient und der jeden einzelnen Cent wert ist.” (GOOD TIMES (Musik der 60er bis 80er), Deutschland, Feb/März 2005) Good Times, GER

BEATLES WORLDWIDE ist eines dieser wunderbaren Lexika geworden, die nicht nur etwas für das Wissen des Sammlers tun, sondern deren Inhalt darüber hinaus das Auge anregt und das ist es, was den 372 Seiten starken Band zu einem Buch macht, das eigentlich in keinem Buchschrank eines Fans fehlen darf.” (OLDIE-MARKT, Deutschland, Mai 2005) Oldiemarkt, GER
