The New Mark Lewisohn Books
« on: May 09, 2008, 08:50:33 PM »

hi i'm new here. this is the best beatles forum i've seen i'm so glad to have found it! lifelong obsessive fan since age of 6 (am 34 now!), nice to meet you all.

this is a thread for the brand new lewisohn triple volume book series, volume one of which is due on the shelves this coming christmas. he has been asking fans via websites to send him any bits of clippings, photos, info, memorabilia etc they may have if its not been seen before, and that seemed like a good start. 1963 is where the first book ends, as the 'mania' kicks in, then two more books will follow in the subsequent 8 years.

i'm looking forward to these books. i think they'll become the definitive account because *despite everything* there's not really ever been one.

what do you guys think?

With recent technological info sharing on the net, there are probably loads of new contributions that may prove interesting...all depends on the costs i suppose.

24! I'm gonna be in my bloody fifties!  ;D

Best wishes to Mark, though; Chronicle and Recording Sessions are two of the very best.  :)

This Lewisohn project sounds amazing to me...  Kind of nerdy ;D but just perfect for knowledge-hungry, hardcore Beatles fans.  I wish him lots of luck in completing these books and I'm looking forward to the release of his first volume.

I'm anticipating this one. I've yet to read a definitive comprehensive single volume about the group--the closest is the Anthology, obviously. And Coleman's Lennon book, but that one is obviously very John-centric. The other ones I've read focus on a specific aspect or year, etc. Never felt an urge to read Shout! or anything like that.

I've yet to read the Spitz book, will that tell me anything I don't already know?

Found this:
Recently, someone on Twitter noticed that the first volume of Mark Lewisohn's much anticipated Beatles bio is listed on Amazon.co.uk for publication Sept. 1. Sorry, but don't mark your calendars just yet, at least for the moment. We contacted Lewisohn to ask if the Sept. 1 date on Amazon was accurate. His reply, late last week, was to say "it’s due this fall (autumn) and I’m still writing." It's certainly a book a lot of fans are definitely looking forward to.

Wow! I hadn't heard that he was working on a new one (where have I been?!) That's great! I think his books on the Beatles are some of the best. That's definitely something to look forward to. I can't wait to read it.  ;D
