From Beatles Blog: audio excerpts from Lewisohn's site are up at SoundCloud.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

It does disappoint me when, with all this work, all the checking that must have gone on with this, I find my first typo on page 20! Hope it's not a sign of things to come!

I was thinking the same about the editing; and that from page xiii - the sentence which begins "Unless quoting documents that had it differently ..." is repeated twice within three paragraphs with only a minor variation and exactly the same meaning.  And I haven't even started reading it yet.

I was a newspaper sub-editor in a former life and am just horrified by the typos and errors which manifest themselves in books and newspapers these days since we moved from manual to electronic typesetting; which has reduced the number of people involved - many of those people used to spot errors that made it past the formal checking.

 

I am saying the same thing about the national bibliographic utilities such as OCLC's WorldCat and SkyRiver's database. When libraries think they can do without catalogers, the quality of the records and the database as a whole start going down the tubes. We have to clean up records much more now than we did in the past. And...don't get me started on e-book records we dump into our local catalogs these days. Off topic. Time to get a finger wagged at me by a mod.
