An award-winning music author takes a serious look at a playful question of pop history: what if the Beatles had created one more album?
What if the Beatles hadn't split up?
In The Beatles If..., Penderyn award-winning music writer Daniel Rachel looks at what could have been. Rachel examines the missed opportunities and misunderstandings that led to the Fab Four's demise - and from the ashes compiles a track list for an imagined final album.
Based on years of research and strict criteria, strict criteria, Rachel suggests a thrilling alternative ending to the Beatles' legacy.
