Reading List, Week of 2014-01-26
Reading List 2014-01-27:
*Lewisohn, Mark. All These Years, Vol. 1: Tune In (Extended Special Ed.) (in progress)
*Weldon, Michael J. Psychotronic Video Guide (in progress)
Okay, I haven't finished it yet, but I can still safely say this is one of the best non-music-oriented books on the Beatles I've ever read. Lewisohn masterfully juggles the ongoing narratives of not only the four Beatles but also George Martin and Brian Epstein, placing them all in the context of the burgeoning rock scene of Liverpool and Hamburg. Lewisohn conducted hundreds of original interviews for the book, and it shows, with its wealth of detail and just plain Beatles heft. Highly recommended!
