COMING ATTRACTIONS: Recently, someone on Twitter noticed that the first volume of Mark Lewisohn’s much anticipated Beatles bio is listed on Amazon.co.uk for publication Sept. 1. Sorry, but don’t mark your calendars just yet, at least for the moment. We contacted Lewisohn to ask if the Sept. 1 date on Amazon was accurate. His reply, late last week, was to say “it’s due this fall (autumn) and I’m still writing.” It’s certainly a book a lot of fans are definitely looking forward to.
A NEW BLU-RAY: “Concert For George” is due on Blu-ray March 22, reports the excellent music website Musictap.net. The date is also listed on Amazon.com. No word if the new release will have any additional features.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: We put up a couple of very special stories last week. The first was a great interview with Beatles archivist Ron Furmanek in which he talked in great detail about some of the remastering projects he’s been involved with for Apple. The other, on our Vintage Rock ‘n’ Roll Examiner side, was an interview with Monkees archivist Andrew Sandoval about the recent release of the Monkees movie “Head” in an expanded CD and on Blu-ray. Please check them out if you haven’t already.
