Read all about the Beatles | Book reviews

TuneinRecently, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in the U.S. — Feb. 7, 1964 — with a nostalgic scrapbook of reader memories of the first Beatles concert in Seattle, which happened at KeyArena (then the Seattle Center Coliseum) on Aug. 21 that year. To continue our celebration of the Fab Four, we offer a look at some of the new (and reissued) books about the Liverpudlian lads.

Books

“The Beatles: All These Years Vol. 1 Tune In,” by Mark Lewisohn (Crown/Archetype, $40).
Ever since his publication of “The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions” in 1987, Mark Lewisohn has been one of the clearest voices among Beatles’ historians. Lewisohn received the biographer’s dream gift for that book — the chance to listen to all the Beatles’ Abbey Road session tapes — and his concise and levelheaded reporting was welcome.
