I dont fear the long gap between each volume as it will take that long to read them. Maybe by the time we've finished reading Volume 1 Paul will have issued album 6 in his archive collection (there are around 40 of them in total, it began in 2010, and so far we have had 4: BOTR, Macca 1 & 2 and Ram).

Maybe Paul is being thoughtful and giving us enough time to save up between each release.

I mentioned this upthread. To save me typing it again,

I'm guessing it'll be about £50 for the full version. Quite a bit of money, but being a Beatles fan can be so expensive nowadays.

EDIT Holy fuck! £120! 1856 pages!

Scuse my language, but that was a bit of a surprise. That's $193 USD at the current exchange rate. I'm sure it's the full price and it'll come down before it goes on sale, but still...

Hi all,

I'm so excited about Volume One of this epic work - Tolstoy, eat your heart out!  DrBeatle asked about the difference between the normal version and special edition, and was promptly referred to Joe's comment and link up-thread.  This still needs further clarification.  Despite my obvious love of the Fab Four, I am intent on purchasing the normal version (only 800 pages!) and will adopt this policy for the subsequent volumes.  The normal version is advertised on Amazon as "The Complete Story": How is this so when there is a much bigger work being published concurrently?  I would be very grateful, Joe, if you could help me on this.  I'm presuming that "Complete Story" means the complete historicalstory and that the Special Edition will contain the very same story, but will then take on the role of a facts and figures book with more quotes about juicier aspects ie. in film-making parlance, the cutting room floor or the bits they didn't want you to see!  I had a brief flick through Johnny Rogan's mammoth work on the Byrds, Timeless Flight, not through any particular interest in the group, but just to see what I might be able to expect in terms of structure and layout.  The volume I was reading contained over 1,000 pages, but it was interesting that Rogan had a Notes section at the end that gave quotes from the band members pertaining to the event that was referenced by its page number.

In short, just as Lewisohn has left no stone unturned, I want to be sure that I am not missing out on key elements of the Beatles story through purchasing the normal version.  I know I'm fretting, but..........!

Lewisohn's book now has a website and a Twitter page.
