Review from Jude Kessler, author of the John Lennon Series:

“In 1964, The Beatles created entire LP, Beatles for Sale, as a homage to their life-long love of country music. But how did this connection to musicians such as Carl Perkins begin? It began in The Country of Liverpool! And here, in exciting and accurate detail, David Bedford walks us through the Liverpool-link to The Beatles’ country and western vibes. Known for his detailed research and passion for “getting things right,” Bedford unfolds yet another dimension in The Beatles’ story that has long been overlooked. This book is a must-read for Beatles fans and scholars alike. I loved it!” Jude

    “Leave it to none other than David Bedford—the author of Liddypool, no less—to provide a superb, granular history of Liverpool’s affinity for country music and roots music. In his inimitable style, Bedford draws us into the story of the city’s defining players and the music—always the music!—that made the Great City the hotbed of artistic creation that fathered the twentieth century’s most profound and abiding sound effusions. Lavishly illustrated, The Country of Liverpool traces the Fab Four’s country ’n’ western influences, while exploring the genre’s expansive impact before, during, and after the band’s career.” 
    Ken Womack, author of Solid State: The Story of Abbey Road and the End of The Beatles
