Author Terry Crain of the faBgear Company to Release New E-Book on Beatles Copyrights
By: faBgear Company
"While researching my first book about Beatles U.S. memorabilia, I would run across copyright notations for the items to include in my manuscript,"
Crain, a retired administrator from John Logan College in Southern Illinois, spent over two years on research that has uncovered a fantastic array of items, including games, dolls, sculptures, novelty records, sheet music (in English, Spanish, and French), written articles (including Canadian articles), photographs, cartoons, drawings, paintings and other items – even a back scratcher!
The novelty record genre in particular is an interesting one. "You'd think Beatles novelty records from that time would naturally be in the rock and roll musical style," Crain says, "And some were, but not all." He has uncovered Beatles novelty records recorded in the style of American folk, British folk, foxtrot, jive, samba, bluegrass, doo-wop, country, big band, jazz, orchestral, spoken-word, polka, surf and ska!
In contrast with Crain's first book, which was produced in a large coffee-table style format, the new book will be released with a dynamic e-book format option. "Because of the number of pages, the weight, shipping, and other aspects, I'm excited to offer this book digitally," he explains. "I know some readers don't like this mode, but I'm excited to use this platform and everything it offers. Readers can download the book to their phone, personal device, handheld device, pad, desktop, or whatever device they use. The format is like a regular book; you can flip the page to read it. And one of the most exciting aspects is that pages will contain bonus content like videos and extra pop-up information to help enhance the reading experience."
Copyrighting the Beatles is slated to be released in August of this year. You can learn more about Terry Crain's work, including his previous book, here: https://www.fabgear.company/
