    One thought on “The Longest Cocktail Party

    1. Kurt Reighley

      Having recently interviewed former Apple A&R guru Peter Asher, and in the midst of binging on the the recent spate of Apple Records reissues, I thought it'd be fun to read more about life inside this unique, short-lived company. Dilello is an entertaining narrator who doesn't take himself too seriously (thank heavens), and the material about the curious roster of Apple artists - particularly Mary Hopkin and Jackie Lomax - should make this a required read for anybody who purports to be a Beat [...]

    2. Pete daPixie

      Richard DiLello's Apple memoir is described as "full of period detail, The Longest Cocktail Party is paced like a fifty-yard dash. At the same time, it is an immensely poignant portrait of the demise of The Beatles, a social document of pop culture and a narrative of the death of the 60's dream."I felt that the book was longer than any fifty-yard dash. Fifty yards is rather a long distance to dash with a mouth full of puke. Any 'immensely poignant portrait' should satisfy like a cordon bleu expe [...]

    3. Bonnie

      Not a Beatle book for neophytes, but for those well-versed in the group and its history, this is an amusingly wild ride through the waning days of Apple. The author, a sort of gofer in the label's publicity department, was witness to all kinds of insanity - donkeys in the elevators, Hell's Angels trashing the Christmas party, would-be Janis Joplins literally screaming for attention outside the windows. (And then there was the hippie tribe camped out on the top floor, including a barely-teenage g [...]

    4. Lauren

      This subject interests me so much, but this book is so poorly written that I struggled to finish. In the introduction the author states he had difficulty publishing the book in the 70s due to lack of interest in the topic. I sense the publishers actually looked at this messy manuscript puffed up with self-importance and took a hard pass. Yes, Apple was chaotic. The book captures that well, but repetitiously and joylessly. I didn't glean any new information from this book. So if you're thinking o [...]

    5. Brandon

      An intriguing read of the rise and fall of the Beatles Apple empire. Not terribly specific on details, but a pleasing to read account of an insider who witnessed much - sonted and sober! It really must have been a trippy experience working at Apple in the late 1960s.

    6. Don

      A nasty ending to the whole ride that was the Beatles. Everyone was taking advantage and Lennon got beat upon by bikers at the Apple staff Christmas party when he rubbed them the wrong way with some stupid Lennonish remarks. Apple was destined to fail due to the lack of organization and infighting between mostly John and Paul. Egos destroyed what had been the world's greatest band.

    7. David Levin

      I've been a long-time Beatle fan, have read many books, seen many documentaries, and even with all of that knowledge, this book was an outstanding and totally fresh read! I loved it!Most Beatle books tend to focus on personalities, personal lives or the music. And Apple Corps was always a part of the story that I only knew a little bit about.This perspective of that time and place, of that period in their history, of the business side of it, of what it was like on a day-to-day basis to work ther [...]

      When American teenager Richard DiLello wandered into the Beatles' Apple building in 1968, he was immediately appointed house hippie. He began making tea, rolling joints, and listening to dozens of demo tapes. By the time Apple crumbled a few years later he was director of public relations. Along the way he noted many of the stoned conversations he heard and the insane bits of business he witnessed: one-man bands auditioning in the reception area, Hell's Angels taking over Saville Row, and the Be [...]

    9. Andrew

      an interesting read which shines a light on a fairly shambolic final few years and their well meaning attempt at bringing creativity to the masses and offer opportunity where it didn't lie beforeven how short lived Apple was and given the fact that it seems as a company to lurch from one bad decision to another.t really investing in talent outside of the Beatles being the main problem encouraging hangers on, its amazing than in many ways given its small roster it was actually pretty successful f [...]

    10. Shannon

      Fab read of the disheveled life behind the doors of Apple Records as the Beatles were coming apart as a band, while creating the magnificent Abbey Road and lesser Let It Be. As seen from the "house hippie," a sort of assistant/runner-type employee, Richard DiLello, it is amazing that any business ever got done, given the hangers-on, manipulators, crooks and other cons who made their way through the doors at 3 Savile Row in London, and all through the haze of marijuana smoke. Richard is present f [...]

    11. Lynn

      If you want to know what working for Apple Records in its heyday felt like, this is the book to read. Fun, wild, intriguing and insightful. Not a dry bio; this puts you right in the middle of the action, with hippies, Hell's Angels, drug use, theft, backstabbing, artist promotion and general weirdness prevailing on a daily basis.You can't run a company this way, which is why Apple went under for years, but it sure must have been a blast to experience.

    12. David Ralston

      This book was a tough read. There was little interesting and relevant information about Apple Corps. and The Beatles within the ramblings of Mr. Dilello. The end of the book contains newspaper extracts of the prolonged legal battles of the Beatles. These extracts do not add to the book, but are simply tacked on. The book has interest as an artifact the late 1960s and early 1970s hippie culture. Beyond that, it's simply one of the lesser Beatles books.

    13. Julie

      I love the Beatles and I could barely get through this book. Don't get me wrong, the stories are really interesting and it's cool to get a different perspective. But I had a really hard time focusing on the stories because the writing is all over the place. Sort of stream of consciousness. I suppose if you have better focus than I do, you might enjoy this book a lot more.

    14. Glen Hannah

      The Longest Cocktail Party is a must for your Beatles bookshelf. The book was originally published in 1972 and Apple Records employee Richard DiLello's memory is fresh and his recollections interesting and amusing. It's a fun, breezy read that covers the years 1968 to 71 when The Beatles became businessmen in an era of hippies and drug addicts. One for the die hard Beatle fans and historians.

    15. Soki

      Just magnificent! I am not even such a Beatles fan, but the way this book is written, every sentence perfectly balanced and with a twist, I makes a strong impression on you. Beatles fans or just plain reading enthusiast, I recommend this book to everybody.

    16. Drew Athans

      My full and detailed review is on my website: rnrchemist/2015/0Finally back in print. A really groovy and interesting insider's account of Apple Corps. Really captures the absolute insanity inside the company.

    17. Rick Boyer

      Thought I'd re read this as it's going to come out as a movie. Perhaps a little "inside baseball", but a must if you're a fan of the "Fabs"
