If a word appears in blue, @Old Soak, it indicates a link (apart from with @ mentions). In my post the word “thread” is in blue, and is a link to the book’s thread.

Generally new books would go into this thread, with the main exceptions being major new official books and Mark Lewisohn, which get their own threads.

No harm mentioning a new book here. If there is a thread for the book, we will get you to it before any long discussion develops…mods at your service john-lennon-salute_gif We can even move posts if need be. No trouble.

Rolling Stone have announced a new Mal Evans biography due for publication in 2023, and the release of his archives the following year.

Evans’ family teamed up with Beatles scholar and author Kenneth Womack for the biography, which will be published by HarperCollins’ Dey Street Books imprint. The following year, they’ll release the “Holy Grail” for Beatles fans: his archives, which fans have been speculating about for years. The collection contains diaries, manuscripts, and more.

The manuscripts sound fantastic. Long mentioned but never seen.

Aw hell yes, I was wondering whether Mal’s stuff would ever see the light of day. I’m delighted!

That’s amazing news! I knew he had a diary, but I didn’t think they would be released.

While doing some collection development this morning, I found this…

Fandom and the Beatles

Summary: “More than 50 years after their breakup, the Beatles are still attracting fans from various generations, all while retaining their original fan base from the 1960s. Why have those first-generation fans continued following the Beatles and are now introducing their grandchildren to the group? Why
are current teens affected by the band’s music? And perhaps most importantly, how and why do the Beatles continue to resonate with successive generations?

Unlike other bands of their era, the Beatles seem permanently frozen in time, having never descended into “nostalgia act” territory. Instead, even after the announcement of the band’s breakup in 1970, the group has maintained its cultural and musical relevance. Their timeless quality appeals to
younger generations while maintaining the loyalty of older fans. While the Beatles indeed represent a specific time period, their music and words address issues as meaningful today as they were during the Summer of Love: politics, war, sex, drugs, art, and creative liberation. As the first anthology
to assess the nature of fan response and the band’s enduring appeal, Fandom and the Beatles: The Act You’ve Known for All These Years defines and explores these unique qualities and the key ways in which this particular pop fusion has inspired such loyalty and multigenerational popularity.”

Brings a tear to my eye. Beatles love everywhere. Group hug.
