you draw a blank at the name Freda Kelly? I did too, but not any more.
This is the story of the Beatles' "girl Friday", a likeable young woman
from the same area of Liverpool as "the lads" who became their fan club
president and business secretary. Now that her grandson is growing up,
Freda decided to revisit her historic past life as one of the Beatles'
inner circle of associates/friends and make her story available to the
world at large. The bonus features are a bit hit & miss but over all
this is a very engaging, informative, and absorbing remembrance of a
seminal time and an unforeseen phenomenon by a woman who never let any
of it change her happy and loyal but oh-so-capable character. I nominate
Freda Kelly as the true "Fifth Beatle"! -- recommended by Becky W.C. - Walt Branch Library [ see Becky's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
