If Lewisohn ever does edit this tome, will we have a "Revised Standard Version" alongside the Revised Extended Version? If you are into the Christian Bible, you will get the gag.

Impregnating women before marriage. John and Paul were just the next generation in a long line that found themselves in this situation. It's a "family tradition." Nope, I haven't read any further than the John and Paul family backgrounds. I may have v. 1 read by the time v. 2 is published.

I hope you can read faster than that! :lol:

Yeah, I can read faster than that. It's just finding the time to do it. I know. I need to get my priorities straight. :-)

I haven't got to the end of the introduction. Can't read books when i feel i have to so will read it in my own time thank you very much (same as with tv shows, who says i have to watch it immediately? Still haven't seen the last episode of Sherlock from series 2 or the 2013 Christmas episode of Doctor Who). Currently reading 'Man on the Run: Paul in the 70's' and "Paul McCartney: The Recording Sessions 1969 - 2013", both of which are excellent.

^^ I'm the same. I've not long finished reading David Mitchell's (British comedian) book, and now I'm reading a novel by an Aussie writer. I've got two more lined up to read once I'm done. I'm about 300 pgs into 'Tune In' and in no rush whatsoever.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I'm only about 70 pages in and it's not like I want to rush, it's just that I WANT to read it and can't put it down once I begin.

From the Examiner: Lewisohn is now saying the extended edition will be available again, but he's not sure when.

Mark Lewisohn is doing a talk at the Laugharne Weekend festival on 5 April. Tickets are about £7 after the booking fee. I've just got mine. There's also a screening of Snodgrass, David Quantick's drama about what John Lennon might have been like if he'd never become famous.

I realise most people here aren't anywhere near Wales but I thought I'd mention it regardless. Laugharne (pronounced 'Larn&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10 is a coastal town in west Wales most famous for Dylan Thomas having lived there.

Well, got my deluxe extended today at last. It's gorgeous, beautifully put together and bound. And, yes, it smells nice. :-)

As I feared, the publisher's page already says 'Reprint' and I'm pretty annoyed with Hive about that as I always order early to get 1sts.

Still, at a tidy £19.26 I suppose I ought to get over that!  

My copy (which arrived the day before publication) also said "Reprinted 2013". I suspect the extended edition is considered by Little, Brown to be a reprint of the standard version, rather than a brand new title. It seems unlikely that I'd get a copy from a second print run before the book was even published, though not impossible I suppose.

Ron Nasty said
No mention of reprint on my publication details page, just "First published in Great Britain in 2013 by Little, Brown".

Maybe Amazon got the whole of the first edition print run because they had so many orders, and it was already on its second run before it was even published based on advance orders?

I think I can finally shed some light on this. I was browsing the Amazon reviews and saw these comments:

I have the very first edition of the 'Extended Special Edition'. Also the standard 'Trade Edition'. Cannot see any difference in paper quality. Both Editions are marked the same: 
'Papers used by Little, Brown are from well-managed forests and other responsible sources.' 
'MIX Paper from responsible sources. 
FSC C104740' 

HOW IS YOUR REPRINT EDITION MARKED? 

Be happy all of you for your reprinted 'Extended Special Edition'. My books have very low paper quality. Certainly no 'New Langely Antique Wove woodfree paper' as told by http://amazon.co.uk
It's a shame the books appeared on the market at all! The first copies of the 'Extended Special Edition' should have been taken back by the publisher before publishing date.

So it looks like, if true, the first edition shouldn't have gone on sale at all. Interesting.

Saw this on Wikipedia.

In an interview published on 28 December 2013, Lewisohn estimated that the second volume would be published in 2020 and the final volume in 2028 (about the time he turns 70).

Damn it!!blue-meanie

I'll be 65. I sure hope I live that long. Hell, I hope HE lives that long.

Examiner reports that the 'All These Years' UK Publishers, Little Brown, have released a statement saying that they will print another run of the extended edition if/when there are enough orders to cover the cost of doing so.

Jesus Christ! I was 33 when Vol. 1 came out (I'm 34 now). That means that I'll be 40 when Vol. 2 comes out and 48 when Vol. 3 comes out. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

If I don't make it to 65, when the final volume is published, I need a volunteer to read it to me graveside.

HELP! I need somebody...

If there's one thing I don't like about the cover (apart from the awful design) is because it's white it gather's all the muck! What used to be pristine book now look like some cheap old tat! Not to mention that the pages collect grime as well, because there's a nasty black line where all the appendices are from all the page flipping I do!

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

Anyone heard any word on the paperback edition yet? Nothing showing on Amazon, but these days a p/back date doesn't follow too far on the heels of initial publication.

I'll be interested to see, also, how (if) the cover design differs, as there surely has been at least some negative feedback to the publisher/author on the h/back design. Naturally there'll be various glowing critical blurbs on the cover (and rightfully so).

Brand new here, nice to meet everyone! I have heard/read many references to Lewisohn's conversation with George in which George said something to the effect of "how can know what happened? You weren't there." Does anyone have a source for the circumstances surrounding that quote? E.G., when, where, etc? Thanks!
