Product Synopsis

This is Part One of Volume One.

This extended special edition of Mark Lewisohn's magisterial book Tune In is a true collector's item, featuring hundreds of thousands of words of extra material, as well as many extra photographs. It is the complete, uncut and definitive biography of the Beatles' early years, from their family backgrounds through to the moment they're on the cusp of their immense breakthrough at the end of 1962.

The ebook of the extended special edition comes in two parts, mirroring the two hardbacks that make up the deluxe print edition. Each part is sold separately and this is Part One, taking the story from the very beginning to their first, famous trip to Hamburg in 1960. Readers wishing to buy the whole extended special edition of Tune In in ebook should be sure to buy Part One and Part Two.

Mark Lewisohn's biography is the first true and accurate account of the Beatles, a contextual history built upon impeccable research and written with energy, style, objectivity and insight. This extended special edition is for anyone who wishes to own the complete story in all its stunning and extraordinary detail. This is, genuinely and without question, the lasting word from the world-acknowledged authority.

Customer Reviews

This book is aimed at Beatle fans with a powerful appetite for details about the band. Parts One and Two together are double the length of the standard version of the book - Part One alone, to which this review relates, is over 800 pages in ebook form and it still only covers the period up to the end of 1960, nearly three years before the release of their first proper single. I have plenty of books about The Beatles but none that has been so exhaustively researched. Mark Lewisohn has written several Beatle books already and he used to work for Paul McCartney, although he has been at pains to stress that Paul McCartney has had no influence over the content of the book. He began with a deep knowledge of the subject and then spent years researching deeper and wider. There are a great many footnotes detailing his sources and he has clearly not only read all the other Beatle histories but interviewed everyone he could find who was around the young Beatles-to-be and sought corroboration for their stories in contemporary newspapers etc. The result is exhaustive if slightly exhausting. The facts are fascinating and there are a number of surprises that contradict commonly-known and frequently repeated parts of the band's story - or myth. I hate spoilers so I'm not going to repeat them here. If you want to be surprised, read the book or search online for a synopsis that does give the details. There is a wealth of detail about the lives of John, Paul George and Ringo, as well as George Martin, Brian Epstein and other important players in the Beatle story. There is also a fair amount of background about life in Liverpool after World War II and about the music business in the 1950s and early 1960s. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and am sure I shall equally enjoy Part Two. I can barely wait until Mark Lewisohn finishes the research for his second and third volumes and, if there are two-volume versions of those books for fanatics to buy then I'm sure I'll buy them too - if I live that long. Since this book took many years to write, I'm sure the next one won't be published for quite some time. I can't honestly give it more than 4 stars as it is a little dry and is only really suitable for a relatively narrow readership. But if you're a big Beatle fan and have an appetite for as much information as you can have about the band members when they were growing up and the context of their lives and musical development then I can't recommend this highly enough. It's unlikely that a more thorough account will be written in the near future.
