It looks like this is being reissued in the US on 1 October: http://www.amazon.com/Complete.....569765340/

I doubt there's any new material though – in the interview mjb posted above Lewisohn expresses frustration at the way his books get reissued without his say, and even though he'd like to update the Chronicle he's fully committed to the three-volume biog right now.

From the product description: "First published in 1992, The Complete Beatles Chronicle has become the Beatles Bible". Damn! I've been found out! a-hard-days-night-paul-7

It also says volume one of his Beatles biography is now being published in 2011. I actually don't mind the delay – it's clear he's going to be spending the extra time doing a very thorough research job, and it'll be worth the wait.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Ok, I got it Yesterday, and Here are some first thoughts. 

1. Holy Cow it is Big.

2. The Cover Picture Sucks

3. It would be hard to read it cover to cover, but I`m going to anyway

4. I`m only up to 1960, but It was Definetely worth buying

5. Lewisohn admits when he`s not sure of a day, which I admire.
