Unavailable since its first appearance in 1972, The Longest Cocktail Party is among the most fascinating Beatles books ever published and a unique document of its time. American teenager Richard DiLello wandered into the Beatles' Apple records in 1968 and was immediately appointed 'house hippie '. He began making tea, rolling joints and listening to dozens of demo tapes. By the time Apple crumbled a few years later, he was Director of Public Relations. Along the way, he noted many of the stoned conversations he overheard and the insane bits of business he witnessed: one-man bands auditioning in reception, Hells Angels taking over Saville Row and the Beatles playing on the roof. Full of period detail, with a riotously colourful cast of characters, The Longest Cocktail Party is fast-paced and funny but, with hindsight, also manages to be immensely poignant about the demise of the Fab Four and the death of the Sixties' Dream.Unavailable since its first appearance in 1972, The Longest Cocktail Party is among the most fascinating Beatles books ever published and a unique document of its time.
