Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"The story is told so definitively that, after this, that really should be it….Lewisohn is a Beatles oracle." (The Guardian UK)
"I can think of no greater praise for Tune In than to say that it gives The Beatles the beginnings of the biography they deserve….gripping." (Financial Times)
"Unlikely to be surpassed as factual record…. Once anointed 'Beatle Brain of Britain' while working in accounts at BBC Radio, Lewisohn amasses and investigates facts without sacrificing an iota of the excitement." (Telegraph UK)

    "Great book"

    But the "American" dialects this reader uses are beyond comical. I respect that the author does a nice variety of characterization with the various British accents, and does to my ear a fine job of characterizing the German and others. But when it comes to American English? Should've called in a ghost reader.

    "Please please me!"

    I grew up with them. Saw the Beatles live in Detroit, Mich - they are and always will be my boys. This is an amazing piece of journalism and story telling. I was a bit daunted by 40 hours but here I am at the end and wanting more. I will have to keep myself very healthy and alert to be around for 2020 and part two. Maybe release in sections - I would pay for the subscription. Beatles 4ever! 😉

    Story
    "A must read for any Beatles fan."

    A wonderful book. Funny, poignant, informative, and rather sad in parts.

    Really great narrator, only complaint is his insistence on doing a rather extreme accent for every person. His impressions of the Fab 4 are great, but really don't need these thick, exaggerated voices for the Germans, Americans, etc...

    Cannot wait for volume 2!

    "The truth!"

    If you are a hardcore Beatles fan this book is a must read! Lewisohn isn't known for his Beatles knowledge and research. Nothing is left out, glossed over or made up. Lewisohn goes out of his way to make sure the reader knows everything and if information is sketchy he tells so. He also talks about rumors and backs his information with interviews, documents and film. If he feels that information is stretched or not enough references exist, he writes about it. This book is a true piece of art and history! I can't wait for the next 2 parts!

    "An engrossing history of a time as well as Beatles"

    A deep fascinating dive into a time, a place, and a group of unusually captivating individuals who came together to transform music. A big listening project but well worth it!
