EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS - JOHN LENNON AND THE BEATLES AT THE MIRROR OF MAN'S DESTINY, with the help of the author, will take you on a journey THEN [The Sixties], NOW, and into the TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY. THE BEATLES have affected mankind. The total Trilogy work will expose the real story - the life and times [THEN & NOW] of THE BEATLES' legacy, and of their history - and how it is woven into the fabric of what is being reported by media, newsgroups, government, universities, internet and discussed by world citizens. While all the other BEATLES books TALK about the parties, TALK about the drugs and TALK about the band's life backstage and on the road, Richard Warren Lipack's THE LAST CONCERTS, the first installment in THE BEATLES' TRILOGY - SHOWS IT - with no holds barred! EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS is drawn from the single most important extant photograph collection on THE BEATLES in the world. Many of the incredible photographs in this book are reproduced for the first time ever. There are well over 150 photos alone - all BEHIND-THE-SCENES - of THE BEATLES during the last days of their live performing career - up to that moment they retired from the concert stage, in August of 1966. It is significant to note that comprised within the monumental 367 page coffee-table book: THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY, released by THE BEATLES and APPLE in the year 2000, only a scant TWO (2) photographs are reproduced treating the period of the band's 1966 last concert. These consisted of previously published images by San Francisco lensman Jim Marshall. Within the present realm and scope of THE BEATLES own vast and mighty resources, it is absolutely amazing that so little treating the time of the band's last concert came to be gathered and reproduced in THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY - in an effort to tell this part of the story of what is obviously the epitome of their live performing career! The Trilogy work however makes the reader witness to the odyssey of a major pivotal event in history as it ACTUALLY unfolds! This is done through the painstaking state-of-the-art digitally enhanced reproduction of action photographs arranged in sequential order according to the sequence of the negative film frames - all as they had been clicked-off by the roving camera - over the tour period. The methods employed to reproduce these images include the rare and lost art of maintaining the halftone dot in the shadow area comprised within the black and white photographs found in EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS. As well, a special Quadtone Process is used to make black and white images into those of striking colors and hues. This is all in an effort to re-create for the reader's eye the vividness of like what THE BEATLES themselves saw during this historic vector-point in time - as they found themselves heading towards destiny and their last live stage show ever - while under the influence of the illicit drug L.S.D. 25. There are some 35 out of 45 FULL COLOR images reproduced in EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS that show THE BEATLES during the period of their last concerts, while THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY only shows but one! The text to THE LAST CONCERTS segment of EPOCH MOMENTS AND SECRETS has been researched and executed over a span of nineteen years. And with this, no stone has been left unturned. Here for the first time, the reader and devotee of THE BEATLES can begin to understand their effect on modern society.
