It is divided into four sections, each of which offers a different mood and a different perspective on the 'emergencies' of modern life.The poems in this volume shift powerfully from elegies to moving evocation s of relationships to reflections on reality and poetry to political poems that arose out of the writer's stay in Chile.

206 DiLELLO, Richard Longest Cocktail Party : An Insider's Diary of The Beatles, Their Million-Dollar Apple Empire and Its Wild Rise and Fall. First Edition in dustjacket
Playboy Press, Chicago, 1972, 
DiLELLO, Richard. The Longest Cocktail Party : An Insider's Diary of The Beatles, Their Million-Dollar Apple Empire and Its Wild Rise and Fall. (Chicago) : Playboy Press, (1972). First Edition. Pp (4),v-x,(2),3-325,(1). Illustrated. Large 8vo, green cloth, black ilustration to front board, black andwhite lettering to spine. "The years of The Beatles' "Apple" empire in the world's music industry were the turning point of a generation. The Longest Cocktail Party is the story of those years, an account of that seemingly e ndless parry atmosphere which made The Beatles the artist-heroes of millions. Viewed from the inside, this book shows the interaction of the famous and fabulously wealthy young men who made up The Beatles. Richard Dilello, who was on the Beatles' London scene for three years, tells about the Fabulous Quartet, their hangers-on, technicians, women, enemies and weirdo visitors. Page upon page reveals the crises that inevitably followed high hopes, disaster followed by hysteria. John Lennon and Yoko Ono are married in Gibraltar and organize their public Bed-In. A Hell's Angels group takes up residence at Aople headquarters and disrupts a Christmas party, with John Lennonas Santa Claus. Success comes when a new star is born, Mary Hopkin. The Ba dfinger group makes it big on the Apple label. But financial confusion drains away the resources that come from these and other successes. Meanwhile, Paul McCartney is married. Lauren Bacall and two of her children visit the Beatles; they get a splendid reception from Ringo Starr but are cold-shouldered by George Harrison. A strange family arrives, all the way from California, occupies the upstairs quarters, takes off their clothes and decides tostay forever. Now the Harrisons are arrested on a drug charge. Lennon's pi ctures of his honeymoon with Yoko are seized under the Obscene PublicationsAct. Other members of the Beatles act are outraged, uneasy, confused. More and more, John and Yoko appear in the limelight, identified with causes th at have little to do with pop music, the Apple enterprise is suffering fromneglect. DiLello, a brilliliant young photographer whose exclusive picture s illustrate this book, sees the last years of Apple as "a definitive storyof the music business today, a social document of pop culture, the narrcra tive of the entertainment industry in the Sixties." The zany doings by and around the Beatles, the personality clashes, the hilarious and shocking incidents provide the fabric of DiLello's book. Hie account of the dramatic chaos inside the Beatles' headquarters is colored with affectidon, as well aswith a sardonic, cool view of intrigue and self-indulgence." (from the dj) . Very good in rubbed and egde-torn, price-clipped dustjacket. 50.00
