Ooh, look what I just discovered! The Beatles – The Biography: Tune in v. 1 by Mark Lewisohn, due out on 1 September 2011. This is the big one, folks.

It's not listed yet on Amazon.com, but I'm sure it'll follow soon.

a-hard-days-night-paul-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-9a-hard-days-night-george-9a-hard-days-night-john-6

Product description: "The Beatles are the cultural phenomeon of our time, arguably – unarguably? – of all time. In addition to their outstanding and clearly timeless music, their influence still pulses around the world in unaccountable aspects of everyday life. FAB has one aim: to be the all-tile standard word on the Beatles. Comprehensive, objective, unexpurgated and the product of definitively deep-level research, it will set down the whole story, easily, in three volumes. Volume One tells the early part of the story in two parts: 'Passion' from 1940-62 discusses the beginnings of the band, and 'Explosion' focuses on 1963, the year when everything changed."

I presume FAB was a working title, and that all-tile is meant to be all-time. I guess the three volumes will be Tune In, Turn On and Drop Out.

Wow!! Fantastic! I'm reading Paul McCartney a Life, and although it's entertaining and it's not that nice on Paul, I don't buy that of "Paul was the genius behind the Beatles". The Lennonista on me says "no no". So this book is going to leave me wanting to read for more. The Anthology will keep me busy until September that's for sure!

 

Thanks for the news Joe!

I asked the publisher about review copies. Nothing yet, but they did send me this (the 2004 date at the bottom is probably when it was green-lit):

ADVANCE INFORMATION The Beatles – The Complete Story

Key Editorial Points: UK Publication Date: 01 September 2011 Edition: Hardback

First part of the definitive three-volume biography of the Beatles

ISBN-13: 978 0 316 72960 4

UK Pub Price: £25.00

Classification: Biography

The Book: Format && Size: R  (234 x 153 mm)

Illustrations: 16pp of b/w photos Extent: 800 pp

The Beatles are the cultural phenomeon of our time, arguably – unarguably? – of all time.

In addition to their outstanding and clearly timeless music, their influence still pulses around the world in unaccountable aspects of everyday life. FAB has one aim: to be the all-tile standard word on the Beatles. Comprehensive, objective, unexpurgated and the product of definitively deep-level research, it will set down the whole story, easily, in three volumes.

Volume One tells the early part of the story in two parts: 'Passion' from 1940-62 discusses the beginnings of the band, and 'Explosion' focuses on 1963, the year when everything changed.

Mark Lewisohn is the author six previous Beatles books and has been described by the Independent as the band's 'Emeritus Professor'.

Backlist:

The Beatles Live!, The Beatles: 25 Years in the Life, The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, John Lennon: In My Life, The Complete Beatles Chronicle, The Beatles' London

Reviews: 'Mark Lewisohn stands supreme. His dedication in getting all the true facts, coupled with a style of writing that is most readable, leaves him with no rival. Time and again he has proven that he knows far more about what we did than any of us' George Martin.

Key Sales Points:

* Unlike other major artists, such Dylan and Elvis (our own Peter Guralnick), there is no deifinitive biography of the Beatles on the market.

* This will the work their music deserves, and as sales of both the Anthology book and the '1' compilation show, the appetite for all things FAB remains as strong as ever.

Have I told you lately how much I love your sense of humor?

Only you would celebrate this news with a tiny harmonica solo.
