Too many Beatles books? In my house there’s always room for one more, and this week’s addition is All Together Now (Matador, £9.99), an ABC of Beatles’ songs by registered Fabs geek David Rowley.

Who's kept Beatles jottings safe? Yeah, it's the taxman - Monday, May 27, 2013

Many years ago, when the world was young and vinyl ruled, I used to sit in the Abbey Road studio, watching the Beatles at work.

At the end of a session, I would pick up their odd scraps of paper - the lyrics of a song they had been working on, scribbled on the back of an envelope or a telephone bill.
