Well, I am not sure what the “rule” in this blog is about posting such things as this, so I hope no one minds. But one of the great Beatleg authors in our community is releasing now the newest book in his series, Beatlegmania Volume 3 by John C. Winn. I have several other books that he has done, and they are vital reading to those interested in all the details and chronologies of the Beatles and bootlegs, as Beatlegmania covers. The books Way Beyond Compare, That Magic Feeling, and Lifting Latches cover the entire known Beatles output of extant recordings up to the time of printing. And Winn does a great job in giving life and detail to the stories about how songs and video came about or appeared, I can’t recommend them enough! And there is great news that instead of mail order, these books will be reprinted and in American bookstores:
Winn wrote: “Finally, I’m pleased to announce that fully updated versions of “Way Beyond Compare” and “That Magic Feeling” will be coming out shortly from Three Rivers Press. I’ve added hundreds of entries to the revised editions, incorporating all the new material to surface over the last five years. “Way Beyond Compare” should be available in your local bookstore around November, with “That Magic Feeling” to follow next spring!
So, that is mighty cool for those who didn’t get them before. The books by John C. Winn would be a much better Christmas present than the jukebox below!
Anyways, Beatlegmania is now being released as well, so I hope our friends in the Beatles community continue to support one of their own.
Here’s what we’ve read:
