12 posts | 7 read | 8 to read
Tune In is the first volume of All These Yearsa highly-anticipated, groundbreaking biographical trilogy by the world's leading Beatles historian. Mark Lewisohn uses his unprecedented archival access and hundreds of new interviews to construct the full story of the lives and work of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Ten years in the making, Tune In takes the Beatles from before their childhoods through the final hour of 1962when, with breakthrough success just days away, they stand on the cusp of a whole new kind of fame and celebrity. Theyve one hit record ("Love Me Do") behind them and the next ("Please Please Me") primed for release, their first album session is booked, and America is clear on the horizon. This is the lesser-known Beatles storythe pre-Fab years of Liverpool and Hamburgand in many respects the most absorbing and incredible period of them all. Here is the complete and true account of their family lives, childhoods, teenage years and their infatuation with American music, here is the riveting narrative of their unforgettable days and nights in the Cavern Club, their laughs, larks and adventures when they could move about freely, before fame closed in. For those whove never read a Beatles book before, this is the place to discover the young men behind the icons. For those who think they know John, Paul, George, and Ringo, its time to press the Reset button and tune into the real story, the lasting word. From the Hardcover edition.

If you‘re a fan of The Beatles and a thousand page biography doesn‘t sound intimidating, I highly recommend this one. It‘s the first in a planned trilogy and it‘s on sale!

I haven‘t finished one of my favorite books this year: Tune In is amazing! Incredibly thorough, it‘s the first in a trilogy about The Beatles. I can picture them at the Cavern Club!

I started the book this summer and hit the 2/3 mark today. Still hoping to finish before the year is out!

I was reading this last night. After The Beatles played Hamburg, they came back to Liverpool. John came back on December 8, 1960. I‘m sure he had no clue what the next twenty years held for him.

A creative, intelligent, conflicted, difficult, broken individual. I wonder what he‘d have done with his next chapter if he‘d gotten to live it.

It‘s taking me forever to read this book, but only because I bought it for my Kindle and know I‘m not under a library deadline.

I ❤️ the Beatles. I especially ❤️ how this song is used in the wedding scene in Love Actually. Can‘t wait for this year‘s rewatch!

(OMG I love the app update for images!)

I was so excited when I saw that there were Beatles mini metal bookmarks! That is, I was excited till I saw they meant insects, and not the Fab Four.

Don't get me wrong, ladybugs and bees are lovely. But they're not Beatles! 😁

MatchlessMarie You can pretend they are Beat Bugs who sing Beatles songs 😁 2y

Ringo Starr was born on this day, 7/7, 77 years ago. If it hasn't hit noon yet in your part of the world, when it does, send some peace and love into the world in his honor! 🥁 🎶 ✌️ ❤️

#LitsyPartyofOne continues! I started this book today and I can tell I'm going to love it. Tune In is almost 1000 pages on early Beatles- up to 1962. There are 2 more volumes in the works. I'm glad I waited a few years to get started; volume 2 isn't expected till 2020!

UwannaPublishme Oh, I may have to add this one to my TBR. 😊👍🏻 2y

Only the bottom book is from the library. I snagged the rest at Dollar Tree! I've blown my "no new books" resolution for 2017, but at least I got these cheap! #bookhaul

I hadn't opened my TuneIn app for almost a year but when I did I discovered that since late last year they've had a premium option ($8/mo) which gives you UNLIMITED access (no monthly maximums) to 40,000 audiobooks! I've found 60-70% of what was on my various TBRs there. At the rate I bail, I usually end up using up my Scribd and Audible monthly allotments barely hearing one full audiobook so this is going to change my life! 😍😍😍😍

Cinfhen Woohoo 🎉🎉🎉they are sooooooo losing $ on you! 2y

saresmoore FINALLY! Very cool. 2y
saresmoore Also, I love that this ad features a Taylor Swift album. That's how they really got you, isn't it? 2y
shawnmooney @saresmoore Lol. TBH I barely even know who she is. Maybe the daughter of the dude who wrote about Gulliver? 😂 2y
saresmoore Ahahaha! Good guess. 2y
Suet624 I love that you haven't been affected at all by Swift. And congrats on TuneIn! 2y

One of the most in-depth Beatles bios around. Though tending more towards factual history than personal backstories, Lewisohn never misses an opportunity to give a sneak peek into the Fab 4's beginnings, hits, misses, triumphs, and disasters. I can't WAIT for the 2nd installment, due (hopefully) in 2020. ❤️📖

Most of my Beatles books are at my parents' place (along with THEIR Beatles books). The two I have here will be joining their fellows whenever I have room in my luggage on my next visit home. The DVDs and the CD box set are mine though 😄
