(40 pages including a 2 page illustrated black and white Beatles catalog. All the arrangements use the Hansen/Warner Bros. transcriptions except for I Want You (She's So Heavy) and You Never Give Me Your Money which uses the Campbell, Connelly/Warner Bros. version. It should be noted that in 1984 and 1985, many of these titles were imported into the USA by Cherry Lane and were readily available in most music stores. Missing are Something, Octopus's Garden and Here Comes the Sun).

The Beatles Anthology 2   Music Sales Ltd.
The Beatles Anthology 3   Music Sales Ltd.
The Beatles Anthology 1/2/3
(240 pages, including 13 pages with a black and white picture each. Like the American counterparts, these songbook do not feature all the songs on the CDs. But in some cases the American and British songbooks feature a different lineup of songs. But unlike the American songbooks, the British ones feature their own unique covers similar to the Klaus Voorman artwork. This volume is a "limited edition of the three Beatles Anthologies").
1998 Music Sales Ltd.

(48 pages including a 3 page catalog. Includes only 17 songs off of the "white" album. Missing are: Dear Prudence, Wild Honey Pie, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Piggies, Don't Pass Me By, Julia, Mother Nature's Son, Helter Skelter, Long Long Long, Revolution 1 (instead it has the single version of Revolution), Savoy Truffle, Cry Baby Cry and Goodnight. With the exception of Revolution, all arrangement stem from those used by Hansen and Warner Bros.)

Beatles Ballads, The   Music Sales Ltd.
Beatles Complete: Piano Vocal/Easy Organ
(220 pages, including 20 pages of pictures and illustrations, a two page catalog and a two page essay by Ray Connelly. The illustrations are from "The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics". The bonus here is the black and white photos. The ones of Lennon, Harrison and Starr are alternate shots of the "white album" portraits. The McCartney one may also be an alternate. His hair is combed differently and he is wearing a turtleneck but his face is unshaven). This songbook also features Another Day, Give Peace a Chance and Power to the People.
12/77 Music Sales Ltd.
Beatles Complete: Piano/Organ/Vocal Edition
(320 pages including 18 pages with one black and white picture each, 6 pages with two black and white pictures each and one page with four black and white pictures.

Beatles Rock Score, The

One of these pictures is similar to the one in the Beatles Anthology 3 booklet on page 5 where McCartney is wearing a jacket, two are from the Hey Jude promo and one from Magical Mystery Tour. Two stills are from Magical Mystery Tour but not shown in the film (Lennon and Starr talking to McCartney dressed in a military uniform), and McCartney with the midget on a two person bicycle. And one of McCartney and Starr at a recording session. And last but not least, a letter from Dick James, "The Publisher").
