I admit I forgot the book was coming out today since I'm waiting for Nov. 14 as well.

And just a reminder that Lewisohn's appearances in the UK begin today.

Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years by Mark Lewisohn (Oct 29, 2013)

Well, this version had made it to #1 in at least 1 category on Amazon.

It happened. A friend turned up this evening with a copy of Tune In for me. They'd seen it in Tesco's for £15 and knew I'm having trouble getting out and about at the moment due to a messed-up leg. So now I have a copy of the book. I'm umming and ahhing about whether I'm going to read it or wait for the Deluxe, but I will probably succumb. Books like this always get read a couple of times quite closely together, so that I can get those bits I missed first time around.

I can't just stare at it for 30-odd days. All that temptation...

Won't be saying anything about the contents when I do succumb however. I'll save that for the "spoiler thread".

However, in response to the question about a fourth volume, having had a brief flick-through, to get a better idea of how Lewisohn had constructed the story, I noticed in the back section (notes, picture credits, index, etc.) there is an appeal for information, witnesses, etc. I should imagine this has request been made elsewhere so will quote a pertinent line, "If you were a first-hand witness to any part of the Beatles years - up to, say, 1980..."

I have never seen any comment from Lewisohn that would indicate a fourth volume, he has always spoken of three. However, he has indicated that the third will go beyond their split, at least into the early 1970s. It could be that that request for information up to 1980 has led to some speculation that he is, maybe, considering a "What happens after you've been a Beatle?" volume.

Myself, I doubt it... until Lewisohn starts talking about he how would be loth to finish the story without telling the story of their relationships afterwards...
