Who Was Eleanor Rigby:
For which album were the songs "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane" originally intended? What was the original title of the album eventually released as "Abbey Road" ? Which instruments were played by the Fab Four during the recording of "She's Leaving Home"? These are just some of the almost 1,000 questions included in "Who Was Eleanor Rigby..." Organized year-by-year in chronological chapters, the book includes questions covering all facets of the band from Liverpool, and is a surefire hit with all their fans.
More than 25 years after their break-up, the Beatles are once again the hottest act in music. The recent documentary on the band was one of the biggest television events of the year, and the two "Anthology" double-CDs soared to the top of the charts. .
Incidentally, the answers to the questions above are: (1) "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," (2) Everest and (3) none -- a group of string musicians handled all the playing. As for the book's title, Eleanor Rigby was a name on a tombstone found by Paul McCartney. [via]
