The Beatles: The True Beginnings

By Pete, Rory and Roag Best

This lavish 200 page hardcover volume tells the story of the Casbah Coffee Club, opened by Pete Best’s mother Mona Best in the basement of her 15-room house in Liverpool on 29 August 1959. Lavishly illustrated with early photographs and images taken in 2002 by Sandro Sodano, this book showcases a remarkable archive of early Beatles memorabilia.

“I think it’s a good idea to let people know about the Casbah. They know about the Cavern, they know about some of those things, but the Casbah was the place where all that started. We helped paint it and stuff. We looked upon it as our personal club.” – Sir Paul McCartney
