When the acclaimed photographer Tom Murray, was invited to tag along on an early morning photoshoot in 1968, he had no idea what he would be walking into. He opened the studio door to find Paul, George, Ringo, and John with Yoko Ono. Over the course of a frantic day, rushing around London from one publicity shoot to the next, Tom, the youngest photographer present, caught some of the most iconic colour photographs ever taken of The Beatles.
The following day, The Beatles went on to record "Hey Jude". Having arrived with only two rolls of film, Tom selected the 23 images he considered best. These were exhibited in 1998 after almost 30 years in storage, where many acclaimed them as the very best colour photos of the band. Now, two decades later, these photographs are back together, gathered in a volume no fan would want to be without.
