We're 3/4 metric 1/4 imperial. I much prefer metric if you tell me something is 10 metres long I can imagine what it looks like whereas if you said something was 5 foot, I would have to do conversions in my head and ain't nobody got time for that!

It can be, if someone measures the sound waves from the voice.

I've always found that expression to be really dated. Sixty miles per hour really isn't that fast by today's standards. Maybe a hundred years ago when the top speed of a car was twenty miles an hour it'd make sense, but a great many cars nowadays can potentially go two miles a minute. The average speed of a modern airplane is roughly nine and a half miles a minute. 

 

Anyway, I'm getting way off topic. So, um, Mark Lewisohn, huh. He's a very knowledgeable guy.

Thought you might be interested to hear the following interview with Mr Lewisohn:

https://soundcloud.com/secondhomeldn/tune-in-mark-lewisohn-on-creativity-and-the-beatles

On a separate point, I'm also a member of the Steve Hoffman Music Forums (as I think some Beatles Bible members are too) and there's a thread about Tune In running there too. Apparently, Mark recently discovered some new information which occurred within the timeframe covered by volume 1 but it was obviously too late to include. It's been described as 'a crucial and very moving part of the bigger story'. Intriguing....hopefully, we'll get to hear more about it someday soon.

A transcript can be seen here: https://medium.com/workandlife/birth-of-the-beatles-153d6fe02341#.gixv5vu6c

It's a really good interview – great questions, obviously fascinating answers. Do take the time to hear/read it all.

I've got the kindle version of Tune In which I've read but really want to get the extended version for kindle. But I just realised you've got to buy two parts which are currently £16.99 and £19.99 on Amazon UK (I know it's cheaper than it was). Am I alone in thinking that there should be an arrangement that when you buy a physical book you should also get the electronic version like you often do for blurays. I tend to prefer reading via kindle but I resent paying a lot of money for what is essentially a bunch of code which has no collectors or sell on value. I'd gladly pay for a physical book if I also got the electronic version.

I've never heard of Blu-rays having free downloads. You often get it with vinyl LPs though, and it's very useful to have the digital files for listening on-the-go.

I also think Kindle books are often overpriced. Tune In is a brilliant book, and the extended edition is indispensable, but I wish authors and publishers would understand that they'd sell more copies if they made ebooks affordable. £37 for two ebooks is ridiculous.

Yes Joe I buy a lot of blurays/dvds and not all the time but often they will say "includes digital download" or "UV Digital Ultraviolet copy" to download or stream e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bridget-Joness-Baby-DVD-Copy/dp/B01LHE7MIU/ref=lp_283926_1_3?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1488374329&sr=1-3

I'm sure publishers love the reduced costs which must be enormous for their bottom line. I'm not knocking Mark Lewisohn by the way as I genuinely think he deserves every penny he gets from his brilliant work and I think we are blessed to have him.

 

PS I still have the original version of The Anthology book but I've hardly looked at it since it came out in 2000 because I can only just about lift it. paul-mccartney

I am currently on on page 2 of 1728 of the extended special edition.

I think I saw on Amazon that the extended version is being released in the U.S. in November.  Has the extended special edition not been Beatles For Sale in the U.S. before now?

No, @SpecialCup, the US publisher, Crown Archetype, turned down publishing it in the US in 2013, believing there wouldn't be much interest in a book of that length in their market, and our US forumpudlians were ordering their copies from Amazon UK.

It does appear it is getting some sort of US release on 7 November, but it appears to be being released there by the UK publisher - Little, Brown - as the description states, "Designed, printed and bound in Great Britain...".

The full unedited complete extended version is being released in the US on the 7th November. 

Lewisohn has said

“I’m delighted to be able to announce that the ‘extended special edition’ of 'Tune In' – the ‘all I wrote’ version – is to become fully available in North America from Nov. 7, 2017,” Lewisohn said.

“I wish it could have happened sooner, and that many readers had not been forced to obtain it direct from the UK, but this was due to circumstances beyond my control. Now, thanks to some admirable co-operation between my publishing partners, the long wait is over and everyone will be able to take the deepest dive into this incredible first section of the history of the Beatles – their music, their times, their lives."

FINALLY got this amazing book (the regular versh) two weeks ago from the library! Fascinating info...quite a revelation to learn that John had almost no use for seeing live performers while loving their records.

Gonna be anxiously looking forward to next installment, hopefully as an Xmas gift in 2018. (This year: "Riding So High", surely!)

Isn't the next volume planned for 2020 and volume three 2027?

🙁

(I know I read 2018 somewhere early in this thread, but that was probably an estimate from 2012 or something. My mistake, not reading the last 30 pages here...)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Recent radio interview suggests after 2020 now, that was his initial aim but its taking longer than he thought.
