Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years

Not yet rated | write a review

Tune In is the first volume of All These Years—a 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 1962—when, with breakthrough success just days away, they stand on the cusp of a whole new kind of fame and celebrity. They’ve 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 story—the pre-Fab years of Liverpool and Hamburg—and 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 who’ve 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, it’s time to press the Reset button and tune into the real story, the lasting word.

Editorial Reviews

“The biggest, deepest Beatles book ever.” – Rolling Stone   “This beyond-essential dive into the Beatles’ early Liverpool and Hamburg days is a wildly evocative portrait of our lads on the verge.” – Entertainment Weekly “A fast-moving page-turner overflowing with warm humor, passion, and (of course) music…For anyone who loves music, this book is the genuine ultimate.” – VH1.com “Astonishing…Lewisohn’s masterful, step-by-step account raises the intriguing possibility that the Beatles’ success was anything but foreordained .” – Bloomberg News “A definitive history of the band…Mr. Lewisohn''s chronicle fills in vital details that had been missing from the existing Beatles canon and corrects mistakes that have been reprinted for years.” – The Wall Street Journal “Lewisohn treats his subjects seriously, as historical, if ultimately remarkable, figures, and eschews the myriad myths that have grown up around the band in favor of the sorts of details and minutiae, wrapped in a serious but breezy narrative, that give us the fullest picture of who John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and, eventually, Ringo Starr were.” – Esquire   “Astounding….  packed with revelations and demystifications.” – The Economist “[Mark Lewisohn is] arguably the most widely respected Beatles historian cur
