This is a nice little audio documentary on the Beatles' early lives. The authors explain that they had collected a number of interviews over the years and they wanted to produce this series so we could actually hear the voices of Beatles' siblings, the Quarrybank headmaster, Pete Best and his mom Mona, Stuart Sutcliffe's mom, the Hamburg art students, among others. They also managed to capture interviews with George Harrison and Yoko Ono.
Yoko Ono talks about John fishing in Scotland. There are a number of small anecdotes like that, which add up to a fun chronological run through the early years.
The authors (or is it author?) mention a series. This is the only installment on Audible. I would like to hear others. But I hope they get rid of the background new agey muzak. I am guessing they put it in to tie together the various audio segments conducted over a number of years on different equipment. I have no idea. That is my guess. Though the audio does sound clean. I would just say ditch the muzak loop.
The story is so widely reported and so well known, you may believe there's nothing more to learn. You'll be pleased with the scope of this tantalizing excerpt, and impatiently waiting for the other volumes of the production. Some of us will be sharing this with our kids, and grandkids...
