David Bedford’s 2010 book Liddypool: Birthplace Of The Beatles has been gaining a lot of recent recognition and has even been dubbed the most comprehensive book on The Beatles and Liverpool ever written. The book has been hailed as such by people who should know. To name a couple, there is official Beatles biographer Hunter Davies as well as Bill Harry, a very close friend of John Lennon’s from way back in his days at art college who also was the founder of the Mersey Beat paper. The forward is by Beatles drummer Pete Best, who describes the book as totally enlightening.
March 27, 2011: David was a guest at the 2011 New York Metro Fest for Beatles Fans and I had a chance to speak with him there about the book and it’s complimentary Liddypool CD and DVD (both offered separately).Happy Nat - David Bedford
…and there’s more –
November 28, 2010: As a bonus, my friend Judith Kristen, who is a writer herself (A Date With A Beatle), interviewed David at BeatExpo 2010 in Connecticut where he speaks in more detail about the selection of tracks on the ‘Liddypool’ CD that were major influences during The forming years of The Beatles. My apologies for the ‘fuzziness’ of the recording and the background noise. Some technical problems could not be avoided, yet I didn’t think it should prevent you from hearing what David had to say.Judith Kristen - David Bedford
