The song infers that he did.

Yes, he does.

"rocky raccoon, he fell back in his room
only to find gideon's bible.
gideon checked out and left it no doubt
to help with good rocky's revival."

"Revival" in the sense of religious allegory, i.e. life after death

Every time I check into a hotel room, I always find the Gideon's Bible because of this song. 8-)

This year marks the 5 year anniversary of Mark Lewisohn’s Tune In book. Volume 1 of 3. Anyone know when he plans on releasing Volume 2?

I am very intrigued what the White Album's Deluxe 50th Anniversary Reissue will contain? Perhaps several of the unreleased songs, like "Circles", "Child of Nature, "Sour Milk Sea", etc..... I also would love all of the "Esher" sessions as well. And the packaging must include all of the "Mad Day Out" photos and perhaps some while taken in India w/maybe some of the India acoustic demos.

What does everyone else consider the ideal reissue to consist of?

I wanna say something snarky like "an empty box" but in all seriousness, they have no excuse not to make the vinyl white.

No excuse.

No excuse.

Agreed...that element cannot be overlooked! I hope they do it even better than the "Sgt. Pepper" package.

No clue other than, in a recent interview, he mentioned the previously mentioned date of 2020 will NOT happen...seeing as how the 1963-67 period is their most manic and fertile, it makes sense that his research is going to be immense in order to cover those years.

On a related note, I just recently reviewed this fantastic new book called Riding So High: The Beatles and Drugs --> http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com/2018/01/ ... s-and.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Damn, even if it was 2020 that's still two years away. And now it's going to be even longer! I understand why, I can only imagine the kind of detail he's going in to, but I WANT IT NOW!

Welcome Back MrMagpie.... Hope you're back on here again on a more regular basis! Another outstanding review.... Is it true (did the book mention it) how Dylan thought the Beatles were singing "I get high, I get high" during "I Want To Hold Your Hand"? Man, I'm shocked Paul used cocaine during those years, wonder if that impacted his writing during that time. Thanks for bringing that book to our attention, must check it out myself!

The use of cocaine (by Paul) and heroin (by John) in 1967-68 was quite early - I always think of those substances as being more prevalent later.
