The Beatles have been at the top for fifty 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 read 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.


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

投稿者 S Riaz - (

Over the years I have read more books about the Beatles than I care to admit to and they vary in quality from pretty good to absolutely terrible. However, when Mark Lewisohn announced that he would be writing the `definitive' biography of the band, fans believed him. Lewisohn is not only THE Beatles expert, but he is also someone who has an obvious love for them. In other words, he is also a fan and the little details, which intrigue us, also interest him.

This first volume looks at their family history and childhood, then splits into five chapters; taking detailed looks at the years 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961 and 1962. From the first, two things become abundantly clear - that the author understands the relationship between John and Paul and that he is keen to debunk myths that have become almost accepted - especially ones built around John's childhood. Yes, his childhood was difficult, but films such as "Nowhere Boy" have created a totally fictional account of what happened and even recent books, such as "When They Were Boys" by Larry Kane, simply repeats them. Stories of Mimi dodging bombs to visit the baby John in hospital or John's mother and father forcing him to choose between them in an emotional `tug of love' are just that - stories. Mimi also gets a much more sympathetic portrayal and we learn how, rather than trying to keep John's father away from him, she even allowed him to write to his son from prison. They may have lost touch, but it was certainly not Mimi's fault that they did.

Having established that he wants to tell the story as the truth, Mark Lewisohn is certainly not portraying the band in a better light, or concealing their flaws. They were young boys at this time, each with their own character traits and faults, as everyone has. He also ties in what was happening to other people who enter the story at a later date - Brian Epstein, George Martin and other musicians are there, sometimes almost within touching distance, but their paths not quite intersecting. Most interestingly for fans, he has tracked down people that have simply not been heard from before - school friends, those who worked with them in early jobs, fans, people who were there but have not been considered perhaps important enough to be interviewed before - as well as the more obvious characters in the Beatles story.

This, then, is the complete timeline of those early years - the founding of the Quarrymen, John and Paul meeting at the St Peter's Fete, George joining the band, Ringo becoming part of Rory and the Hurricanes, early auditions, success and failure, and of that first trip to Hamburg, which honed their sound and changed them into a band - even if they were always, "John, Paul, George and a drummer" at this stage. Lewisohn is not afraid to state what most fans have always known - that Pete Best was asked to go to Hamburg simply because they needed a drummer in order to fulfil the contract and that, almost from the point the poor man packed his kit into Allan Williams van, he was on borrowed time as a member and certainly never a Beatle.

Returning to Liverpool, there is the show at Litherland Town Hall which showcased how good they had become, as the Liverpool scene took off and the Beatles - sneered at before leaving - were undoubtedly now the top band in the city. They were the Kings of Liverpool but, as always, wanted more. Enter Brian Epstein, who Bob Wooler remarks, came to the Cavern to watch them - "he came, he saw and he was conquered." There follows the long road towards a recording contract, a changing image with the arrival of suits, the death of Stuart Sutcliffe and the beginning of George, in particular, conspiring to get Ringo in the band. It was also the beginning of girls hanging around their houses, which would never stop from that point on.

With the Beatles finally achieving that recording contract, it was essential to change drummers. They were then no longer "John, Paul, George and a drummer" , but changed to "John, Paul, George and Ringo"- four equal members. "Love Me Do" peaked at number 17, but considering the lack of exposure and the resistance to the Beatles it was amazing the record ever took off. "So, what's from Liverpool?" sneered Dick James, when George Martin told him about `the boys'. That North-South divide was about to be smashed down, as Merseybeat would explode on a jaded British pop market. If London was uninterested at first, then the US certainly resisted anything from England. However, even they would succumb to the charm, charisma, enthusiasm, energy and talent of the Beatles. For the Beatles itself, it was no surprise. As John Lennon said, they always knew they were "the best" and "it was just a matter of time before everybody else caught on."

Sadly, Mark Lewisohn has not yet written the second and third parts of this trilogy, but if they are anything as complete, well written (his dry humour can almost rival the Beatles themselves) and his desire to tell the story as it should be told, then they will be worth waiting for. In the meantime, there is an extended, two volume edition of this book due out soon. I cannot imagine what Lewisohn may have left out, but I am quite sure that I will enjoy reading it to find out. This book has been needed for a long while, it is a triumph and I am sure it will become the definitive biography of the Beatles.

A review in a national newspaper criticized this book as being bogged down in too much detail. I disagree. The basic story of the Beatles is very well known, and it is this depth of detail that brings new insights, new revelations; so that the history you thought you knew becomes a whole new story. Reading the book you never get the feeling that you're wading through a mass of detail. This is because, firstly, the book presents you with so much new information. There is virtually a surprise on every page. Secondly Mark Lewisohn has such an easy narrative style, full of humour and with an obvious affection for the subject
The book was ten years in the writing, and it shows. He must have read every book, magazine, interview, article, contract, invoice, and scribbled beer mat. However, the author hasn't just accepted everything en mass; he's rejected anything that was embellished or exaggerated, in order to present the most complete history of the era.
Some of the things that struck me include:
*** The role of luck in the story. The government abolished National Service just before John Lennon was due to be conscripted. Without this lucky timing, instead of being in Hamburg, John would have been in the army [or, more likely, living in exile in Ireland.
A similar dose of luck allowed John to obtain a passport in record time, literally at the last minute, which enabled him to take part in that all-important first visit to the Hamburg clubs.
It was really good luck which gave them two key management figures in Brian Epstein and George Martin; a couple of decent chaps in an industry full of sharks.
*** The book not only gives us the story of the individual Beatles, but is also a snapshot of Liverpool life in the period. In particular, for a writer from outside the area Mark Lewisohn displays a complete grasp of 1960s Liverpool idiom and slang.
*** Following their return from Hamburg the Beatles appeared on the bill at the Litherland Town Hall on 27th December 1960, and event widely praised as being the real launch pad of their Liverpool fame. Mark Lewisohn estimates that, at the time, they were the most experienced Rock group in the world. He captures well the excitement of these early live appearances, where audience members became lifelong fans after seeing them just once.
This period, from the Litherland gig until the end of the book, was the pinnacle of the Beatles live act, performing for fans in smoky, sweaty cellars, before they were drowned out by the screams of Beatlemania.

*** I found the relationship between the group and their fans really touching. While the Beatles where over in Hamburg they regularly kept in touch with a band of loyal fans, mainly young girls, with letters, postcards and photos.

*** The author puts a whole new light on the infamous Decca audition, and explains why rejecting the group was a stupid idea, not with hindsight, but at the time. Truly fascinating reading.
*** For the first time I really understand why Pete Best was sacked, and why his position with the group was always tenuous.
***The significance of "Love Me Do" has been largely downplayed in previous Beatles books. To have a first record, by an unknown group, make it into the top twenty, and stay there longer than most others, despite absolutely no promotion by the recording company, was huge. It was during this period that the Beatles battled the London-centric show business establishment, who were not merely indifferent, but actually hostile. They detested the name Beatles, their clothes, hair, and accent. The basic structure seemed to baffle them. Up to now there were vocal groups or instrumental groups, but here were these lads from up North who did both. It was new, it was different and it upset the status quo.
To sum up, I can't recommend this book too highly. The word awesome is overused, but Mark Lewisohn has truly done an awesome job with this first volume. I eagerly await the next.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The Best Beatles' Bio in the Universe 2015/12/3
投稿者 true britty - (
Maybe I'm in no position to claim "the best" crown for Mark Lewisohn's incomparable, incredible, incandescent bio of the Beatles. I haven't read every Beatles book. That would be a full-time job.

But I've read a lot of rock bios. And this one sits at the top.

Lewisohn is helped in his endeavor by the Beatles themselves. John, Paul, George and Ringo were smart, funny and revolutionary, a biographer's dream. Their lives were a match for their music. The threads of those lives, along with the story of their era and their Liverpool, make for a captivating read.

Lewisohn is an exhaustive and meticulous historian. He knows how to track down forgotten sources, sift through decades of interviews and tease out connections.It should be pointed out that this biography only covers Beatles history to the first recording sessions with George Martin in 1962. Within a year, Beatlemania would hit Britain and then spread the following year to America.

Tune In begins with an author foreword then jumps to a moment in time. We look in on pre-Beatles John and Paul as they sit toe to toe with guitars to work out chords and lyrics . This was where the Beatles began, in bedrooms, in side rooms, in stolen moments, as two friends figured out songwriting.

From there, the history backtracks to the genealogies of the various clans. Lewisohn lets you know where the families came from and how they got to Liverpool. You get some background on grandparents and parents and the war that ushered in the births of Ringo, John, Paul and George.

The major events of pre- and early Beatles history are covered but in new and refreshing ways. Liverpool becomes a major character, as does the music of the 1950s. You'll want to have Spotify on so you can pull up tracks as John Lennon falls in love with an album by Johnny Burnett or Paul practices his Little Richard hollers. The artists and songs that inspired the Beatles are everywhere in the text.

One thing Lewisohn never lets you forget was that the Beatles' success was not a sure thing. Like bands today, they struggled to get people to notice them. They even contemplated jumping in the English Channel to stir up some press. There was a point too when McCartney started hedge his bets. He took a straight job at a factory, maybe feeling this music thing wasn't going to work after all, when Lennon said, Make up your mind. Music or mundane factory work?

You can't help wondering how differently this story might have turned out if they hadn't gone to Hamburg, if Brian Epstein hadn't gone to check out this rocker band in the Cavern, if George Martin hadn't landed the thankless job of recording a relatively unknown band from Liverpool, if, if, if.

But these events did happen. Lewisohn captures the immediacy, the uncertainty and the magic of a band that would eventually change the world but at a moment when John, Paul, George and Ringo were still striving to get a recording contract and to get people to listen.

I have read many Beatles biographies over the past 40 years or so. I bought the DVD Anthology Collection. I thought I knew The Beatles. Then came this book and it made me realize just how little I knew and how sparse the details previously published really have been. The research and attention to detail is nothing short of phenomenal. The book has transported me to Liverpool late 50's early 60's. I can hear the music. I can smell The Cavern. I can reflect on how great The Beatles became yet can see them here for what they were - teenagers in post-war Britain who found each other and developed a common goal. I would never describe Mark Lewisohn as a great writer. But, his book, for me, measures among the best biographies I have ever read.

The best book on The Beatles in a long while, thoroughly enjoyed it.
I thought I'd be bored as I have read just about every book there is on The Beatles but I couldn't put it down and can't wait for the second instalment.
