Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, writing, recording, and experimenting behind closed doors at EMIs famed Abbey Road studios. Though the album took five months to record, few of these groundbreaking sessions were photographed. However, American photographer Henry Grossman spent an evening in the studio with the band as they began work on a new song: Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. Henry documented the entire session with his camera, taking more than 250 black and white photographs over the course of the evening. Only a small handful of these amazing pictures has ever been seen by the public. This book presents - for the first time ever - the entire collection of black and white photos, including more than 220 never-published pictures. Housed in a deluxe limited edition volume, these beautiful images are presented in chronological order, allowing the evening to unfold for the reader just as it did for Henry. The result is a stunning photographic essay, an intimate fly-on-the-wall view of the Beatles at work. This 11-inch X 11-inch hardcover book is individually hand-signed by Henry Grossman and housed in a deluxe clamshell case. The books 240 silver-edged pages are printed on heavyweight art paper with image varnishing. Also included is a portfolio containing four limited edition black and white museum-quality prints and a reproduction of one of Henrys original contact sheets - all suitable for framing. Kaleidoscope Eyes reveals the Beatles at the height of their creative powers, recording the body of work many would hail as the greatest album of all time. It is destined to become a treasured collectors item.
