And in essence, as I posted earlier in this thread, he contradicts himself wildly and unequivocally. You can't be "getting everything" with the abridged (which, by DEFINITION of the word "abridged", has things excised) version yet get EVERYTHING with the author's cut.

It's like saying by eating half a pizza, you get all of the pizza, but by eating the entire pizza, you get more pizza. It simply IS NOT TRUE.

He's a storyteller. If you're describing a recording session, for example, you can say what happened and who was there. That's probably enough information for most people. The story is told.

You could, however, also describe how and when people arrived, the weather on that particular day, the Apple Scruffs outside, the number of tape reels used, who was engineering, the atmosphere inside the building, when the lunch break took place, what people were wearing and how many times they broke wind. That's what he means by there being different levels to the story (not necessarily the bit about breaking wind - I'm fairly confident he won't be going into that sort of detail, though I wouldn't bet on it). There's always an extra level of granularity you can go to, though for the sake of everyone's sanity you'd have to draw the line somewhere.

Mmm. Pizza.

New interview with Mark (first of a series of clips) where he mentions that the book will take us "into their houses, into the clubs, the van...". So whilst he doesn't actually mention flatulence... a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Seriously, though, my appetite is even more whetted.

Glad to hear that, Emily. And look at it this way, it's £75 for 2 books.

Anyway, what I really wanted to say, ask politely, is that those of you who get the October release, please don't saying all over the place, "Well, Lewisohn says..." Wait for those of us who are waiting until November to catch up. If you feel you just have to say something, put it under a spoiler tab. Please play nicely and don't spoil it for those of us who have to wait!
