The story of Beatlemania in America, from its modest beginnings to total euphoria, this book explains why Capitol turned the Beatles down four times before finally agreeing to release their records.

There is also a new chapter titled “Capitol of the World,” which lists and provides details on all of the British recordings issued as singles by Capitol pre-Beatles from 1956 – 1963.
