'I grew up in Hamburg, not Liverpool.' – John Lennon
BIG: Beatles In Germany is a profound pictorial document of the bond between The Beatles and their 'guardian' country: from their first trip to Hamburg in 1960 to a national tour and John's film work in 1966.
'A terrific pictorial document' - Beatle Brunch
BIG: Beatles in Germany is illustrated with a wealth of rare and unseen photographs of The Beatles. Among the photographic gems included, all superbly reproduced, are the classic Top Ten Club photographs by Peter Brüchmann and previously unseen images of the Beatles' Bravo-Blitztournee tour by Günter Zint.
'I just went into the Top Ten one day to have a beer and listen to the music. Wherever I went in those days I carried a camera with me. I knew nothing about the band that was playing, but I started taking their picture because they looked so good.' - Peter Brüchmann
'Was it down to fate? I couldn't say that the whole thing that happened in Hamburg at that time was intent in producing The Beatles, sending them out into the world. That might have been true, but we didn't experience it like that. To us, it was a free-for-all, a wonderful, crazy, electrifying time...' - Tony Sheridan
