The first volume of Mark Lewisohn's three-part biography of the Beatles is out. Called Tune In.

I'm reading it on my Kindle--it is exhaustive, but only rarely exhausting. The stories begin earlier than you can imagine--grandparents and great grandparents. When I realized that was where we were starting, I got a little impatient but surprisingly it was mostly pretty darned interesting. I'm more than 50% through this first book, and it's still only 1962--Pete Best is out, and Ringo is in...but George Martin brought in Andy White to replace him after a slightly disastrous first recording session. A good story, well-told.

I enjoyed the book too. It was interesting to see how hard they worked from the time they recorded "Love Me Do" until the next single. Certainly not an overnight sensation. I got the regular edition. I understand the expanded edition is even longer as well as including extras. I thought he did an exceptional job of capturing the city and the time period.

Its going to take a long time for Lewisohn to get this completed. I read that Vol. 2 is not expected for 2-3 more years.
