Publisher's Summary

The complete, unabridged audiobook of The Beatles - All These Years.
The Beatles have been at the top for 50 years, their music remains exciting, their influence is still huge, their acclaim and achievements cannot be surpassed. But who really were the Beatles, and how did they and everything else in the 1960s fuse so explosively?
Mark Lewisohn's three-part biography is the first true and accurate account of the Beatles, a contextual history built upon impeccable research and written with energy, style, objectivity and insight. This first volume covers the crucial and less-known early period - the Liverpool and Hamburg years of a hungry rock and roll band, when all the sharp characters and situations take shape.
This is the Beatles like you've never heard them before. It isn't just 'another book'; it's the book from the world-acknowledged authority. Forget what you know and discover the complete story.

Critic Reviews

"This is the story told in Proustian detail.... The first edited-down volume, is largely a delight, and the story is told so definitively that, after this, that really should be it. Secondary sources are comprehensively mined; letters, public records and business documents have been found in places no one else ever thought to look.... Lewisohn is a Beatles oracle." (John Harris, Guardian)
"Never previously have the Beatles' formative years been recounted in such detail. It is unlikely to be surpassed." (Michael Watts, Daily Telegraph)
"Lewisohn has done an astonishing job. I can't wait for volume two." (Independent)
"A major event in music publishing this month as Tune In by Mark Lewisohn lands...the definitive account of The Beatles." (GQ)

It doesn't get any better than this!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Beatles - All These Years to be better than the print version?

This audio book is probably the best I have "ever" listened to.
If you like ''The Beatles'', this is the ''one and only'' book to get.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have no favourite characters, as they are all done so well.
The individual Beatle accents are "spot on"!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Stu Sutcliffe chapters were particularly moving.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait till audio Book 2 is available.
Any idea when this will be?

Epstein is the best part of the story

I chose this book to get a clearer understanding of the band that played a huge part in shaping the British music scene.

What you get is a much more comprehensive book, not only telling the story of how each Beatle came to join the band but also the stories of those on the fringe of the band who made it all possible. Brian Epstein & George Martin etc.

The story drags in the parts about the Beatles themselves. Too much time is spent on girls / boys who followed the band in the Cavern years. Which Beatle was their favourite and why. At times it sounds like fan letters to Smash Hits!

The real gem in this book though is the story of Brian Epstein. Having no real interest in his life and past I was tempted to skip his bits but soon the complexity of his character and challenges make his story the most gripping. And for this reason alone the book is worth a listen.

Volume 2 please?

A wonderfully written if exhaustive history. I want to read the next part right away. Ranks up there with the Peter Guralnick superb Elvis Bio. Perhaps it lacks the brevity and passion of Nick Tosches incindary Jerry Lee Lewis book Hellfire, but what rock bio doesn't ? Overall a great read. I look forward to the next volume.
