A few years ago, I rekindled my interest in the Beatles. Hertsgaard's book helped, so did the enthusiasm of stepchildren.

Iıve compiled a few of these Beatles lists. If you have some of your own to share, please post them. The books Beatlessongs and Revolution of the Head both list (with few disputes) who played what on what song.
