We're looking for Beatle fans who can write!

If you'd like to become a contributor to this new Beatles wiki, we'd love to hear from you. We need folks who are mildly tech savvy (can work in the Wiki format), can write well, and love the Beatles, particularly the obscure. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

The immediate focus of this website is on the Beatles remasters, whenever they may arrive in all their glory. Currently, all we Beatles fans have is the Love and Yellow Submarine Songtrack CDs; and there are the various fan-generated remasters (Dr Ebbetts and Purple Chick, and others) which are pretty amazing, but not nearly the final word.

Currently, this is a moderated wiki, and in order to become an editor/contributor, you'll need to request registration. Create an account.

We can help folks with the technical aspects of contributing to this wiki.

A word about the individual song pages

The approach is to have, on each song's main page, quotes from the Beatles (including George Martin, as well as other directly involved with the song at time), about the specific song, as well as the "infobox" (cribbed from Wikipedia), and the best-quality video available for that song.

We will be adding separate pages for each song for comment, interpretation, etc.

We hope there are some Beatles fans out there who'd like to be a part of this project.

Cheers!
