“What I LOVE about Ivor’s book is he was there and he reminded me of what it was like as The Beatles began that cultural and musical revolution – the enthusiasm of those young Englishmen setting out to conquer the world! Ivor’s was there!!!” – Peter Noone, Lead singer, Herman’s Hermits
“He (Ivor) got to know ‘the boys’ and the intricacies of their relationships, witnessed their sexual peccadilloes on the road, and became close to their manager, Brian Epstein. He was present when the Beatles met Elvis and when they smoked pot with Bob Dylan for the first time. Fans of the Beatles will absolutely delight in Davis’s insider account of a frenetic tour, and there are several stories that enthusiasts have never heard before.” – Publishers Weekly
