I bought "John" by Cynthia Lennon for £5 in Borders. It was a hardback and was reduced as it had just gone out of print, according to the sales assistant. I guess they're pushing the paperback version instead. I've not started reading it yet.

On the same day I got The Beatles: The Complete Story of Four Lads Who Shook the World by Tim Hill for £7. Both were for research purposes, really. The Tim Hill one has some great pics and a useful chronology up to 2006, which I'll be using for the day-after-day section on my site.

Oh wow Euan Buchan... sleeping with the fab four! Four-some!  :P

The last Beatles item I bought was.... a Beatles For Sale poster

How much did you buy John for, Joe? [the price dont come properly on the screen]. i paid 25 dollars for it, a year ago . Not too bad of a read  8)

That is sweet, Euan.  The last Beatles related (sorta) item I purchased was The McCartney Years.  The last true Beatles purchase was a 1964 mono pressing of "Meet The Beatles" in which the word "Beatles" is in brown.  It is in mint condition and probably the prized collectible in my collection at this time.

The code was hiding a UK pound sign. I got it for five pounds, which is roughly 10 dollars. The other book was seven pounds. All money well spent - both hardback books.

I picked up a book called The Brian Epstein Story in my local HMV. It was GBP3 - about $5.50. Interesting book: it's essentially a collection of transcripts from a 1998 documentary on Epstein, containing first-hand accounts from people such as Alistair Taylor, Derek Taylor and Paul McCartney, and many lesser-known people who also knew him.

On the same day I got The Beatles: The Complete Story of Four Lads Who Shook the World by Tim Hill for &#163;7. Both were for research purposes, really. The Tim Hill one has some great pics and a useful chronology up to 2006, which I'll be using for the day-after-day section on my site.
I also bought John! last week at a bookshop with also a second hand department. So I paid ?9,00. I'm not reading it yet, I'm also reading The beatles Anthology and MOJO (magazine) and it is (mojo also) in English. I'm not very good in English so... But I like the foto on the back ;D

I bought a 3-piece DVD set called 'Looking back on The Beatles 1940-Present"
Such a great buy!
There's some footage I've never seen so it was awesome.
The DVD ran for over three hours, so that was also sweet.

Can you tell us if a lot of the footage has been featured in the "Anthology" series as well?

Okay...my last purchase...  "The McCartney Years" DVD set!  (I know this is technically solo stuff, but it's still sort of a Beatles item, isn't it?)  And this happened just the day after I bought "Help!" on DVD...  Yeah, I'm a Fab Four addict for sure.   :P

Title: Re: What was the last Beatles Item you bought?
Post by: Joe on November 04, 2008, 11:04:41 AM
Three books arrived from Amazon this week - the first was All We Are Saying by David Sheff, which is the full transcripts from the Playboy interviews with John and Yoko from 1980.

The next day Lennon Remembers arrived - the Jann Wenner 'primal scream' interview from 1970 (which I previously had an edited version of), and yesterday I got The Beatles' London, which is an exhaustive guide to places visited by The Beatles (a typical entry goes something like: "On the corner was Gino's fish bar, now a branch of Foot Locker, which George Harrison visited one evening in 1965 following a party at the Bag O'Nails."). Mark Lewisohn co-wrote it, so it's naturally dependable.

Euan - let us know what the Beatles in Scotland is like. There are similarly-themed books for Ireland and Wales. On a similar theme, does anyone know of a good book about the Beatles' Hamburg? I'm probably going there next summer - a trip to St Pauli/Beatle-Platz is definitely on the agenda.

Sorry, python, it`s only now that I saw your post. The poster is the black and white Beatles against the Capitol Hill. It is the only one that can be found here. The best poster now here is that of the Rolling Stones to my mind. By the way one of my friends has just come from Austria and he says that in Austria there are no other Beatles posters than the one against the Capitol Hill. Is the situation the same everywhere? Why so?

Sorry, miss Lennon! the picture on the cover is the Beatles standing close to each other wearing rather short (and very fashionable nowadays) coats. John is wearing a long scarf, George - a leather coat. i`ve never seen the pic before, they are awesome! The first pic in the book is the four faces in close-up. I love it!

Good enough to browse through every now and then, but not earth shattering imho. Slightly different versions from well known pictures in general.

90 dollars is too much, yes. I bought QUEEN book in London for 17 pounds and in Moscow it is about 90 dollars as well. Though I think the translated version would be cheaper, but the original from Britain is certainly expensive! And it can`t be found everywhere.

I haven't been able to delve too deeply in this book yet, but so far it seems good.  Here are my impressions:

On one hand, some of the book's contents may be too basic for hardcore Beatles fans.  (For instance, it lists some "Paul is dead" clues and tells readers about "Yesterday"'s silly "scrambled egg" lyrics--things that any serious fan would already know.)  

On the other hand, it also provides tidbits on more obscure Beatles facts, like brief information on the Beatles' opening acts (like Chris Montez), where Brian Epstein's home was (24 Chapel Street in Belgravia), and what all the Beatle children have been doing in their own lives.  (Well, almost all of the Beatles' kids.  They left out Heather, Paul's stepdaughter, possibly because she's not directly related to him.  Since he adopted and raised her, however, I don't think that's fair.)

If you enjoy reading about random Beatles trivia, then you may like this book.  Overall, it looks like a fun crash course through Beatles history and I can see its appeal for both buffs and beginners.  I know a lot about the Beatles, but this book showed me that there's still more to learn. :)

Are these flaws documented anywhere? I recently bought that along with the second volume (by Keith Badman). There's a lot in there but I did wonder about the accuracy of some of it. I noticed that Miles mentions the US version of I Want To Hold Your Hand being released on two different days, which wasn't so good.

I can't actually remember the last Beatles item I bought. I think it was an album about 5 years ago. I can't remember the first item I bought either, even though I do remember the first my sister bought - which was Please Please Me in 1963 (the single, not the album). Somehow it found its way into my possession in the intervening years. Love that Parlophone label.

Get Back (Paul McCartney tour)
Put it There (Paul McCartney)
Fun with the Fab Four (rare, unsual Newsfilms, comedy, bits and interviews)
The Paul McCartney Special
A Hard Days Night
John Lennon "Imagine"
John Lennon "Live in New York City"
The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show
Magical Mysterty Tour (music)
George Harrison Saturday Night Live
Let it Be (music? doesnt say.....)
Washington D.C. concert (1964)
Tokyo concert (1966)
Paul McCartney and Wings "Rockshow"

and then he gives my dad an Imagine CD, and says to me, "i dont know if this is more for him, or for you." i immediatly stole it from my dad. what a great day!

The Paul McCartney special, is it "James Paul McCartney" the TV show?

Anyway...  I went to a nearby record shop to browse around.  There I found the Club Sandwich vinyl soundtrack to "James Paul McCartney", which I got excited over because I've seen various clips of it on YouTube.  I really love it, especially the little guitar medley that Paul sings with Linda.  I knew the soundtrack existed somewhere, but never thought I'd get my hands on it.

Steve Turner's book A Hard Day's Write is pretty poor. For quite a few of the songs he clearly had nothing to say, and didn't seem to have done much in the way of research. I see it's been split into two volumes now, like the red and blue albums, but Revolution In The Head is a better read every time.

What's the Gospel book like?

then, on the back, it says, " The Paul McCartney Special- Filled with rare music and newsreel clips, thi is a personal, in-depth retrospective of one of rock's most influential recording artists. McCartney chronicles his life and times, including his relationship with John Lennon, the Beatles and their break-up, his solo career, Wings, and the making of Press to Play and everything in between. Also featuring Beatles footage which no collector should be without."

I saw Paul's "The Space Within US" DVD on sale for a good price today, so I bought it.  :)  I've watched it on PBS long ago and really liked it, so I'm glad I own it now.

My husband and I wanted to see "Love" in Vegas three years ago, but we couldn't afford it back then.  This time around we're having more luck with our vacation funds, so we've decided it's finally time for us to go.  :)  Now if only they would bring back "Star Trek: The Experience" to Vegas, then our trip would be even better! :P

I haven't bought anything Beatley in a while, coz I've been a bit of hermit who only studies and goes on certain forums for her breaks ;D But I suppose the last (indirectly) Beatley thing I bought was a DVD of this Beatles tribute band called the BeatleManiacs, when we went to see them a while ago....

For anyone who plays guitar I found these really awesome beatles guitar straps. They have a bunch of different ones that have album artwork and signature images. The same company is coming out with Beatle's guitar picks too. Apparently, Planet Waves even made all of the straps vegan friendly since Paul is a PETA member. You can see them all here www.planetwaves.com/beatles. As of right now I only have the Help strap but they are really great. Just a heads up for any musicians out there. Enjoy!!

^But I had to pay for my ticket. And I'm $3 in debt.

A very worthwhile debt. ;D

Before I even knew Paul would be at Coachella, I had an "emergency" Paul concert fund sitting inside of an envelope. (Yeah, only I would be that lame.) I didn't think I'd actually ever use it, but I did, yay!

I'm doing that too. It's not lame at all, very smart in fact. must be prepared...I'd hate it if Paul had come in my area and I had no money  :( But it rarely happens, I wish he'd come to Kansas City like the Beatles did on there American tour.

Please, how much is this poster at your place? I know that the posters in Britain are cheaper than here, cause they are brought from Britain. But still? I looked at this very poster today but hesitated...
Instead I bought another big magnet for my collection and a wonderful Beatles Abbey Road umbrella.

For 3.99 pounds? This very poster from Britain costs 60 dollars, and a copy costs 30 dollars. They are sold at a special place. A poster at a musical shop costs 8 dollars but there is only one type of poster there - The Beatles against the Capitol.

Also bought an Australian ep, called "Penny Lane", with the same pic as used on the UK Million Sellers ep, and a 1963 UK pressing of Please Please Me (album) and the UK single of "Let It Be".

That's it for now, prior to the box sets!  ;D

I bought a Beatles birthday card at a supermarket yesterday. The bag boy saw the card and totally STARED at it and even opened it to read it.

I smiled and said to him, "It's cool, isn't it?" He didn't even answer; I think he was just too mesmerized. (Is this the magic of the Beatles?) Then he carefully tucked the card into a paper bag and put it into my shopping satchel. ;)

On 9/9 I bought the Remastered Stereo box for my mother and bought the individual albums for myself (since I got the only stereo box).  I wanted the mono, but was cool with what I did get.  Then the next morning, the manager of the store emailed me saying that they had gotten another mono in late.  My wife bought it for me and it sits here in the factory wrap at this time.  Should I open it or keep it sealed?  Now if I can come up with some money for a Wii and the RockBand I will get it for my daughter and me.

I didn't buy this, but I wanted to let you guys know that Borders has a Beatle-themed gift card out.

I saw one yesterday there and asked the cashier if I could just pay five cents for it and go. He totally did not look amused and told me I needed to put at least a five-dollar balance on it. Uhh...

After hemming and hawing for a little bit, he finally agreed to let me have the card for free IF I was sneaky about taking it outside. He still did not look amused but I thanked him and was totally thrilled!!! Yay! :D

I'm glad you are enjoying it. It is quite beautiful on the exterior, I agree.

Since the stereo set is technically my birthday present, I can't open it until this Friday (that's when my birthday is). So it will be sitting quietly and waiting until then. ;)

Yeah...although the "Across the Universe" soundtrack was pretty good, IMO. But on the MOJO CD I got, it just seemed like most of the artists lacked the charm/talent/passion/whatever that the Beatles had. I guess there IS a real reason why the Beatles are considered one of the best bands ever!  ;)

That was such a holy s--t moment!! I never expected to get both sets as presents but I am really touched that he did that for me.

Plus, my wonderful mom-in-law spoiled me with lots of random and cool Beatle goodies, including a mug which I totally love.  ;D

An original '67 stereo Magical Mystery Tour (Capitol, all BMI credits), a Canadian mono original 'Beatles 65', and a first press Capitol stereo Rubber Soul (earliest edition where they forgot to print 'The Beatles' on the labels! It's near mint too, and still with it's shrink-wrap! Love it :)  And each one for under a tenner from Ebay!  Can't be bad!!
For me, as a UK based collector, it's a nice treat to get these original US releases too; too see how the other side of the pond got our Beatles!  And I love the look of those old Capitol labels-very elegant, as were our old Parlophone labels:)
Sorry....getting a bit anorach-ish there ('nerdy' for the American readers!).
Cheers,

Two weeks ago...a vinyl mono tube-cut mono Revolver-sounds very nice!
And I'm bidding on a Hörzu (german) pressing of Sgt. Pepper's!
(You can probably tell I'm very much into the old LP's at the moment... ;D)

There's nowt wrong wi'that! It's the best way to hear them :)
The new CD's are great, but the original vinyl still rules!

I got a Beatles calendar last weekend. It's the first time I ever saw a Beatles calendar being sold at a shop (in the town I live, at any rate), so I absolutely had to get it! It's going to make a nice New Year present for KE ;D (even though she already knows about it). And... I got one for myself too :D

Bummer about your iPod, I hope your new one comes soon! Getting it engraved sounds cool too. I still have my old iPod from my undergraduate days; it's so outdated the screen's not even in color. ha2ha

Recently I bought the Beatles' 365 Days book. I've flipped halfway through it and it's very nice...many pics I haven't seen before, both candid and professional-looking photos.

I also bought Paul McCartney's "Good Evening New York City" deluxe 2-CD/2-DVD set from Best Buy yesterday. It's marvelous--the first DVD reminds me so much of being at Coachella. The performances are really good and the video is better edited than Paul's previous concert films. Highly recommended for Paul/Wings/Beatles fans out there.

LOL...... Well, there are still shots of some attractive ladies, but really not as much as before (IMO). The audience shots are far less annoying (some are even truly adorable, like a daddy dancing with his little girl), and there is much more focus on Paul and the band. Thumbs up to that!

I now have the stereo trunk cover of 'Yesterday... and Today", it's not a pasteover but it's from 1966 when they started to reprint them with just the trunk cover.

SO freakin' awesome. I absolutley love the story behind that album and now I have it.

I heart my local record shop. Dude has been around for ages and he's phenominal, his friend brought in a crapload of Beatles albums for me that I would possibly what to purchase and I got a 70's repress of the White Album cause his origonal that he also brought played like sandpaper. Plus, the repress of the White Album he had the original posters and such in it.

I bought this CD called "In The Beginning", and it's The Beatles with Tony Sheridan. Honestly, I really like the stuff The Beatles did alone on the album like "Cry For A Shadow" and "Ain't She Sweet", but I wasn't diggin' the Sheridan.
Title: Re: What was the last Beatles Item you bought?
Post by: Jai Guru Deva. on June 30, 2010, 02:34:07 PM
I've had a different version of that CD for ages.  I don't LOVE Tony either but it's still a great insight to the early stages of The Beatles, or "Beat Brothers" as they had to be called.  :P
I adore "Ain't She Sweet", purely because of Johnny's swoonful vocals!  *Sigh*
And of course, it's good to hear "My Bonnie", the song that technically started it all...  And "What'd I Say", cos the boys said that the Germans loved it, they'd do it round about 20 times every night.

I didn't get that much Beatle-y this year. A calender from my parents and then a Strawberry Fields tee and a deck of cards from my cousin (she went to Vegas and went to the store where the LOVE show is)

I haven't bought any Beatles vinyl for ages but just got myself a few cheapie items from eBay....

An original mono copy of the US "Something New" LP - which means I now have at least one copy of every original US vinyl LP.
Eight original 1960s UK singles - not in the best of condition but I got all eight for less than £5 including postage.
An early 1970s reissue of the UK "Collection of Beatles Oldies" LP for 99p! I have an original mono copy from 1966 and a reissue from the late 1970s, so this one can sit in the middle somewhere!

That lithograph is very cool.

I can't help but think about when I met Stuart Sutcliffe's sister Pauline. I was so impressed by her genuineness and sweetness. She seemed to appreciate meeting me, and I am not any kind of a celebrity. She just made me feel good, and she was so kind.

She wanted to give me a hug, so I did. It is one of those "Beatle moments" that you treasure for a long time, if not for a lifetime.

I don't mean to thread crap...

Last Saturday I got the Anthology 2 music cd.Sadly the place I bought it from only had it used and I hate getting things used even though the cd's weren't scratched or anything but there was scratches and marks on the case :( I really love the versions of songs on it.I hope to get 1 and 3 soon :) I have $13 and I'm saving up but I'm not sure which one I want to get next,probably the 3rd.I really badly want the Anthology DVD Box Set but I'll probably just ask for it for either my birthday or Christmas.It's funny because I never want anything besides things having to do with The Beatles and it stinks because there's so many products I want of theirs and of John's (like the John boxsets) but the only people who get the things for me are either my mom or my nana so it will take so many years to get all the things I want.Oh well,I'll just have to wait till I'm older and can pay for it myself.

£90 - so bearable - from the Hard Day's Night Hotel. Sadly when I went back recently to buy one of the others, it had gone. I still intend to pick up the one of George that have left at some point in the future (when funds permit)

Last time I was there, I went for the large Star Club of John. It was quite a bit more expensive, but hey, Beatles and guitars are my vices and I spend less on those than some people do on booze and cigs so I can justify it to myself like that!

I'm sure these items aren't that special but I just wanted to share my excitement. LOL Found the following at a thrift store called Goodwill here in California, .99 cents per record:

(http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/3871/dsc01416fa.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/3/dsc01416fa.jpg/)
^UK first of White Album. Number: 0397542. The jacket is pretty worn and didn't have any insert. Oh, well. But it plays pretty nicely with little to no crackling and no skipping. Yay. LOL

(http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/5046/dsc01425a.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/854/dsc01425a.jpg/)
^I saw the back of this cover - the huge Please Please Me part on the top left - while browsing through the crappy thrift store collection. I blurted out OMG pretty loud due to excitement. LOL. However, there was no Please Please Me record inside. Instead found these two records:

(http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/2678/dsc01427qn.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/153/dsc01427qn.jpg/)
^First UK Mono of Rubber Soul. Despite having a few highly noticeable scratches, it played pretty nicely without skipping.

(http://img541.imageshack.us/img541/6502/dsc01421c.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/541/dsc01421c.jpg/)
^First UK Mono of Help. Surprisingly this one is in a pretty good condition with not many scratches.

Total $3.96. Needless to say, I was in a great mood for the whole day. :D

I bought a very cool deck of Beatles playing cards that I found in the music store where I was leasing my middle daughter a clarinet. It has photos (international) of all their single covers.

I also got my son a bunch of Beatles notebooks and folders at Wal-Mart, including one with a Sergeant Pepper cover, Abbey Road cover, and Hard Day's Night cover. Hoping he can convert some young (fourth-grade) Beatlemaniacs!  ;)  Unfortunately my daughters' school requires that they have plain, solid color notebooks and folders.

Darn; had to put off the purchase of that RS 'til next week because of budget constraints. It was either the Beatles special edition or the last copy of the "Mom's Plan-It 2012 Engagement Planner."

When did my life get so boring??   ;)

I ask myself the same question over and over Kathy! I got lucky the week I brought home the RS but these last few weeks would have been a different story. That's life in the Mom lane.  ;)

I think the last Beatles items I got were all the Beatles vinyl and Lennon Box set I  got for X-Mas. I also got Wings Red Rose Speedway on vinyl a couple of months ago too.

The U.S. version of the 'Help!' soundtrack. That's the one I grew up with and I miss those movie music instrumentals. Of course, the U.K. version is great, but it was nice to get the other one as well.

I finally, after several months of checking the local stores, found the remastered Help! CD. I'd just about given up. When the remasters first came out I bought them one a a time because of budget constraints, but Help! seemed elusive. I finally found it yesterday and couldn't resist a cheer!   :)

I also just bought both, not so much for the instrumentals, but to complete a U.S. album playlist that I'm putting together on I Tunes.  Of course I'm using mostly U.K. mono and stereo mixes from the 2009 box sets, but it has been fun to make the playlist and to use the U.S. album artwork.

I was also around and also from the U.S.  I haven't listened to the instrumentals on Help! yet (A Hard Day's Night is on the way), but I think I will for that trip down memory lane.

A friend at work who is in his early 30s discovered The Beatles through Anthology and the 1987 cds asked me "what is the James Bond Intro on Help!"   ;D

Just got the new "Living in the Material World" book for my birthday, and also a book called "The Lost Beatles Photographs - The Bob Bonis Archive", which I've just had a flick through and it has some lovely photos in.
I didn't realise the Material World book was so big - it's almost Anthology-sized!

And I'll order the Bruce Spizer "Beatles For Sale" book with the Amazon voucher I got bought as well. Might be a bad move though, as I'll only want to go and spend more money on Beatles vinyl once I get it  ;D

I've always liked the Sir George Martin instrumentals on the United Artists A Hard Days Night and the Ken Thorne instrumentals on the Capitol Help!

Ken Thorne really mastered the secret agent themes so ubiquitous in the mid 1960s...

Slightly off topic, but . . . Last week my 14-year-old daughter accidentally threw out her $300 retainer at lunch at school! I had specifically warned her about this, esp. since I did the same thing when I was 14 (but, ahem -- anyway), but luckily my own first replacement was free.

I'm still irked thinking of all the Beatles items I could have bought with $300 -- quite a few books, for example!  >:(

Oh Kathy; I feel your pain...three times over! My daughter did the same thing that yours did once and then had another appliance simply vanish into thin air. (I think she threw that one away too.) Then there's my son; he brought his home in a napkin from Arby's and left it on the the kitchen table. I didn't even know it was out of his mouth until I heard one of the dogs chewing on something behind the couch. It didn't sound like a toy because it wasn't. I sure hope you won't have to replace any more!

Thanks, Kelley! That is exactly what my daughter did -- that is, put it in a napkin, even though the orthodontist gave her two cases specifically so she would have one for school and one for home! Grrrr. Ah, well, it makes me feel better to know that I'm not the only frustrated parent (not that I'd wish a retainer-replacement fee on anyone)...!  ;)

I know it's not an original 1963 360/12.  I bought a 2011 Rickenbacker 360/12C63.  It's Rickenbacker's recreation of the 1963 360/12, thus the "C63" in the model designation:

The problem though with the Mono box is that if one album becomes damaged, then you can´t go and buy a new one and replace it - you would have to buy the entire box again.

And they used to get better vinyl pressings. When I lived in Pennsylvania in the early 80s, I used to go to New Jersey to a guy's pharmacy who sold import EMI classical albums on the side because the "Angel" pressings were brutal.

Now what's really strange is that the Japanese Capitol Albums part 2 cost 4 times what part 1 cost.

I thought this would be a good idea to start a thread on what we have in our collection and new Beatles items that we buy. So, we don't need to know what's in your wallet, but what's in your collection. Post pics and what ever you think will fit here.
Heres my latest addition   ([url]http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj300/sun526/000b20c3_medium.jpg[/url]) moved this from the Beatles swag thread in the comment section. I did not know the there a "last bought" thread...sorry any way this is the nicest bbc set out there imo 8)

  It is a great set to own and I love the BBC stuff too! I Just watch ebay and amazon....you'll be surprised at what you can get really reasonable. I missed one of these buy a day and then the BBC box I got came up from another seller and I got it $35.00 cheaper by waiting a day. check ebay first then go to amazon, most times you'll find what you need cheaper.

I heard that.  I don't need lyrics and rice paper sleeves that much. I actually have the U.S. set if I feel nostalgic for the cobbled together Capitol albums (which I usually don't).

Thanks Larry. That's good to know. Man, it seems the more Beatles stuff I have the more I want. It's like an addiction! I've even put this market research app on my phone so I can earn Amazon gift cards. I've sunk low to feed my habit but I have gotten quite a bit that way.

I didn't have anyplace for a turntable either until I decided to reclaim the big room upstairs that connects to my daughter's bedroom. It was like her annex but when she moved out I moved in! Enjoy that book...I need to get the albums one at a time so I won't have that.

I hope E.M.I. sells the book as a stand alone item in the future.  Folks who bought the 2009 stereo CDs separately as opposed to the box set got the same stuff.  The only real difference was that the same documentaries that were on each CD were also on a single dvd with the box set.

It's not like anyone who buys these vinyl discs will save money.  They're selling for $22.00 US on Amazon.

Me too Kathy and also auctions. I collect postcards from the late 1880's through the 1920's so if I ever get one with an ocean liner on it I'll let you know. I may even have one now; I'll look. I haven't seen a lot of Beatles stuff come up. There was a lot that included a nice Beatles magazine of some kind but I wasn't into collecting then so I didn't try too hard. I think I came home with a Beatles 45s case once in a lot but it was really beat up so I threw it out. I probably wouldn't do that now!

Sure, coming soon.
Here are two pictures from the book I got for Christmas. It claims to include 200 photo's from the Daily Mail. I've only seen a few so it's interesting. Includes some photo's from the obscure winter 67-68 time period I like.
The two pictures happen to be ones I referenced on the post about John's drug use. I thought these two photos show how he almost physically changed in the 66-7 period. 68-9 were dramatic too.
The cover photo shows John in the 66 Revolver period and he seems full faced and healthy. The 67 Sgt. pepper photo shows a weight loss and rather drawn appearence. Very different for one year.

The 66 oicture is the cover. The captions give a pretty good idea of the dates and events. It's a nice book with some insights into they're history. No text, just in depth captions.

^Cool  :)

I finally bought Beatles Scrabble today, lol. Been babbling about it for over a month and am looking forward to playing it.

I also took two of my Beatles posters to get them professionally and customed framed today. Finally! I've been wanting to do this for 5 years and at last have the money to do it. One of the posters is an original from the early '60s that needs to be preserved and displayed, the other is a print of them in front of the U.S flag (not a '60s original). I'll post pics when they're finished with the framing in 2 weeks and I can go pick them up. Can't wait to see what they'll look like framed! These will be some of the best purchases I've ever made and I will finally be able to enjoy these two posters. All these years I haven't been able to hang them up at all because they're the kind that would get ruined if I did without a frame, and also wouldn't look good without one. So I consider this to be my latest Beatles purchase.

Quote
The best-selling band in history, with sales of over a billion, The Beatles – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – have had more number-one albums and sold more singles in the UK than any other act, and achieved more sales in the USA than any other artist. They became one of the most critically acclaimed acts in popular music. Formed in Liverpool in 1960, The Beatles had their roots in skiffle and 1950s rock 'n' roll, but as their career progressed they dabbled in many musical forms, including pop ballads and psychedelic rock. In the early days, they honed their skills playing clubs in their hometown and Hamburg, Germany, while manager Brian Epstein polished their act. He brokered a record deal with EMI producer George Martin, who helped the band make the most of their musical potential. The Beatles' first single, Love Me Do, was released in 1962, becoming a modest hit. Towards the end of that year, they recorded Please Please Me, their first number one. The following year saw the advent of Beatlemania, and they became known as the 'Fab Four'; by early 1964, they had become international stars, leading the so-called 'British Invasion' by musical acts of the United States. Throughout the remainder of the 1960s, their stature grew, even though their last commercial concert took place in 1966. During that time, they released many influential and innovative albums, including Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road. After the band's break-up in 1970, the individual members continued with successful musical careers. John Lennon was murdered in 1980, while George Harrison died from lung cancer in 2001; Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr remain active. This book takes a nostalgic and affectionate look at Britain's most famous pop group, from their early days in the 1960s to the most recent activities of the surviving members, with the aid of approximately 350 photographs from the extensive archives of Mirrorpix

Not sure this actually qualifies as a Beatles item per se, but I just bought my 11-year-old son a Pac Man/Abbey Road tee that shows the Pac Man monsters (was it Inky, Binky, Winky, and Clyde? something like that) walking across Abbey Road, a la the Fab Four.

Kind of goofy, but I thought it was cute.   ;)

They weren't that expensive actually. Including shipping to Sweden it was something like 160 pounds.
I'm more into this kind of stuff nowadays. I don't buy many records now, more "owned memorabilia".
I've got a piece of the living room carpet from Kenwood, and also a tile of Brian Jones swimmingpool from Cotchford Farm, where he also drowned back in 1969. That last one is kinda weird.

I'm sure the price was much more reasonable this way. I can't believe how much the Magical Mystery Tour box set has come down. It's 40.00 less now than when I put it on my Amazon wish list.

I got it for 150,98 € from a third party vendor through Amazon.de, which is about 69 € less than Amazon's list price. So, I guess that's OK.

Hard to say, maybe it's based on sales.  I bought the mono CD set in January 2012 for $140.00.  Now it's $200.00.  It was as high as $220.00 I think a couple months ago.

I was wondering if yours had arrived yet! I'm glad to hear that the EPs didn't disappoint. I keep wondering just how much they were able to do with the film. I knew not to expect much when I watched it on DVD but it looked even worse than I thought it would. I had seen clips on
You Tube that looked much better.

They were a phenomenon together and a fascination apart. The Beatles as a group released 12 studio albums in 8 years. As solo artists, however, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr have released a collective 70 LPs and 900 songs since 1968. Never before have the Fab 4 been covered like this: masterpieces and missteps, triumphs and tragedies, moments of clarity and serious lapses in judgment - they're all here. From George Harrison's lush Wonderwall (the shot that launched the post-Beatles era), to the Plastic Ono Band, Wings, the Traveling Wilburys, The Firemen, Ringo's hit singles and All-Starr Bands and more. An examination of their individual musical catalogues, their film careers, and their personal lives far and away from the studio are all covered for Beatles fans to enjoy. This stunning gift set contains four beautifully illustrated books -one for each Beatle - covering their lives since they broke up in 1969. Jam-packed with nearly 400 pages, 200 photos, quotes, lyrics, and memorabilia all packaged in an elegant slipcase, this is a must-have gift item for the Beatle-lover in your life. Longtime music journalist and former editor of Mojo magazine, Mat Snow has been writing about the Beatles for years, and he's doing fresh interviews with friends and colleagues of the Beatles to gain insight into the solo lives of these four extraordinary men.

Thats correct  ;yes What was the last Beatles Item you bought? Not what was the last Beatles replica you bought!!!!

I know it's correct.  Thank you.

Relax, Dirk.  Reissue guitars commemorating the Beatles who used them can be regarded as Beatles items.  They're just as valid as books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, tee shirts, posters, mugs and all the other items mentioned here.

The Hofner 500/1 bass is, after all, called a "Beatle Bass."

I regard my Hofner 500/1 v62, Rickenbacker 360-12C63, and VOX AC30CC2X as prized Beatles items...

Thanks, Kelley.  I bought that Country Gentleman about 25 years ago when it was just another "used guitar."  It's a true collector's guitar today.  It's called "The King George Model" these days.

The Rickenbacker twelve string played through my VOX amp has that distinctive sound heard in...

The Beatles: "If I Needed Someone" Rickenbacker 360/12 C63 & Vox AC30 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6Ie7x4K7Co#)

and...

You're welcome, Kathy.  I guess my Beatles items trend somewhat on the expensive side.  But I love how The Beatles' guitars sound on their recordings and I vowed, years ago when I was a teenager learning to play guitar, that one day I might be able to make those sounds myself.  I don't play in a band but rather play for just myself, sometimes along with the original recordings as was done on those YouTube videos.  It's my form of relaxation after a hard day's work.

That's funny, Kelley, but I do do the do-do-dos when I practice bass.  :)

Live at the BBC and Live at the BBC vol. 2.  Go Hastings.com has them for 7.99 each (yes the 2013 editions) and free shipping if you use the code EARLYBIRD but since these release tomorrow you have to do these today as a pre-order with the code.  I think this is for U.S. orders only.

Way overpriced on Amazon.

They are home produced booklets but the information is first rate and very useful/interesting.  I think a booklet on the singles would be lovely too, as that would complete the set.  There's also one on the cassettes!  ;)

Have just got the Beatles In America book by Spencer Leigh.  Have got the Liverpool and Hamburg books by him, plus the Bob Wooler book, The Best Of Fellas.  He's Merseyside-based and has a great knowledge of the city and the fabs.  Am girding myself to start the Lewisohn book...!

Kelley, I just saw this. Is most of it a repackaging of the BBC sessions? I note there's a few studio out takes but mostly it seems to be BBC performances.

Yes, it's mostly BBC sessions, which is what made me want it. I had some of them already but the quality on these is very nice. And I love the demo of John's song "I'm in Love". I sure wish they had recorded a proper version of it.

Snoopy




Yes, Snoopy, they're bootlegs.  As posted above, 17 ~1 hour CDs of digital transfers from the master tape recordings that were made by the film crew during the thirty days in January 1969 that The Beatles spent at the Twickenham and Apple Studios rehearsing for the rooftop concert (the entire concert is included) and recording for the Get Back album.

Recording Information: The majority of the audio found on this set was recorded by the Let It Be film crew. Two Nagra mono reel-to-reel tape recorders were utilized to capture nearly every moment of the sessions. One tape recorder was assigned to each camera and, each time that camera began filming a beep would be heard on the tape to allow for later synchronization with the picture. 


(http://i39.tinypic.com/15y9oad.jpg)


It's an amazing experience hearing conversations and songs being rehearsed and recorded sounding as though one was in the studio listening through the monitors.  The Beatles break into several extemporanous songs as well during the sessions.  One of my favorites is this blues rendition of The Long And Winding Road...

Nice set.  Hope you're playing them.

I was in error before when I said that The Beatles Again (Hey Jude) was their last LP.  It came out a few months prior to Let It Be because its post-production by Apple was delayed.

So, the Hey Jude album was an Apple release, not Capitol.  I guess it's part of this set because the LP has been out of print for a long time and, with the standardization of Beatles CDs in 1987, was never released in CD format.

As I bought my LP within a week of its release, the record labels say The Beatles Again.  Later pressings had labels which said Hey Jude.

Anyone who buys one the new U.S. Albums CDs individually should get the U.S. Revolver thrown in for free; that's about what's it's worth.  Sorry you got stuck with that one.

It is a great scene. One thing that always intrigued me about it was this poster - or whatever it is - on the office wall...

(http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l279/napup/poster_zps67e6cca2.jpg)

I suppose it might have been regarded as "pop art" at the time, but to me it has a certain Peter Max-ish, psychedelic feel to it, predating all that by a few years.

Anyway, whoever was responsible for set decoration in this film was spot on in this scene, representing the offices of the trend anticipating/manipulating media folks. Interesting.

I know what you mean! I have several stacked up waiting to be read, and soon more will be on the way. Also, I just realized I have a bunch of unread ocean liner books that I can now read. When the kids were little, I was too afraid one of them would spill juice on, or rip, or otherwise ruin any of the glossy big ones or the expensive rare ones. I just pulled a biography of Charles Lightoller off the shelf the other day and remarked, "Hey, I can read this now. I spent $90 on it [on eBay] almost 10 years ago!" My elder daughter was shocked that I'd spent that much on a book, but that's probably half what she's blown on One Direction merchandise the past couple of years.  ;)  Besides, it's a BOOK, and I can rationalize pretty much any book purchase.

I know how that can be. My mother got it in her head that if she could just get my brother and sister together for an afternoon things would be all better between them. As close as I was to them both is how distant they were from each other. Anyway, she wanted us all to get to together at Letchworth State Park, which was kind of a distance but we did it. It turned out to be a really nice day and a special memory that I cherish. But that was just an afternoon. A whole week together on a ship probably would have resulted in someone jumping (or being pushed) overboard! Seriously though, I hope it turns out well for your family.

I keep hoping to find some great Beatles item when I go to an auction. So far, though, the only thing I've gotten was a case for 45's. I ended up throwing it out because it was moldy inside. Sometimes I don't look closely enough before I leap.

I did too.  One for me and one for my sister to commemorate me taking her twice to see the movie in the theater when it was released.  They'll be delivered in time for her birthday on July 4th.

And they arrived today.  My sister is in for a treat on her birthday!

Nice, Kelley.  You'll enjoy that book...and it's not overwhelming with extraneous information.

My sister got me that book as a birthday present when it was first published.  It was hardcover then and called The Beatles Recording Sessions...

I didn't buy these but noticed them in an electronic shop in an airport in the Middle East while I was transiting. These appear to have nothing to do with Apple or the Beatles. I assume that the word Beatles is subject to some trademark protection in most of the world. I don't know the company (eKlasse) I assume it's a company local to the Gulf States and so can get away with this under the radar. Interesting if anyone else has seen these.

"Following the release of The U.S. Albums, The Japan Box commemorates the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles debut in Japan. Using the 2009 remasters, The Japan Box contains the first five original Japanese LP titles, reproduced as CD's.
The titles have been out of print since 1987. Of particular interest is reproducing the album 'Beatles!', which is one of the most well-known compilation LPs in the world, and 'A Hard Day's Night', which features the Japanese original cover.
The Japan Box uses the 2009 remaster sound, with the titles 'Beatles!', 'Beatles No.2' and 'Beatles No.5' using the 2009 mono remaster. All five titles are made of paper sleeves, with reproduced obi strips and supplement posters."

Does borrowing from the library count?

'Wonderwall Music' by George Harrison (my favourite Beatles solo record along with 'McCartney') as I've only got it on LP and my record player does work at the moment.
I need to return to that particular library in three weeks time, on the exact date that the loan runs out, so I'll inevitably get it out again.

It could end up being the most expensive CD ever as I already recognise dates on the label where I've taken it out before!

I quite like Wonderwall. While the pieces are too varied to be able to say I like them all, partypeople a few of the tracks find their way onto playlists of mine. I think it's an underrated effort by George. It certainly doesn't deserve to be bracketed with Electronic Sounds, Two Virgins etc as a throwaway experimental album.
Title: Re: What was the last Beatles Item you bought?
Post by: oldbrownshoe on July 26, 2014, 08:30:43 AM
I don't really buy box sets so I'll probably just make do for the time being.

I can imagine why 'Wonderwall Music' would have been baffling in 1968 but, in the context of AMM, Captain Beefheart, Ornette Coleman, Indian music and wacky 60s soundtracks, it actually makes perfect sense! Most of it is pretty mellow.

Along with the film, it's a real, yet virtually unknown, gem.
Similarly, although the soundtrack to 'More' is quite well known, has anyone ever seen the film? It's brilliant!

Good on you ibanez, I hope you're enjoying the records and all the reviews I've read have been very complimentary about them.

My problem, though, is that the everyday punter who may/may not like, or even have heard of, The Beatles is not being catered for by Apple. When the mono versions become available as single releases on CD I'll cease to have a gripe about them.

One thing I am sure of.....if Apple had put these out as they should have been released (with an eye on the average punter), they'd have made STACKS more dough. Sure they're expensive items, but how many people are actually buying them?

As a Beatles fan, with a bulging wad of notes at the ready, I have not purchased one of the 2009 derived releases and, unless you count specialist record shops, I have only seen one on the high street (an 'Abbey Road' in a supermarket).....and I live in London!

You're right.  Those mono CDs are great and should have been made available as individual releases.  There are plenty of Beatles fans out there who remember the monos and no longer want vinyl or casual fans who are curious about mono but don't want to buy the entire box.

Now that I have the mono vinyl, I can honestly say that the CDs are in no way a compromise quality-wise.

It was funny because when I ordered The Guitar's All Right... I ordered some ocean liner books, too, including one on the
Lusitania that I was SURE I had, but I checked my bookshelves three times and found nothing, so I ordered an out-of-print
copy from the UK. Then I woke up in the middle of the night, realizing I had moved a bunch of books temporarily out to the
garage to make room for the Christmas village. Luckily, with the time difference I was able to cancel the order. Today I'll
have to grab the bin I put those books in. If I do have it, and I'm pretty sure I do, that means I can order this author's
next Lusitania book, which comes out in March. Yay!


Sorry the book standing  in my room long long ago i forgot at  ;sorry all

The pictures are great; there's many I haven't seen before. I was going to qualify that with a comment about inaccuracies but I decided to do a little research elsewhere and it's not really bad...so far. I am confused on one thing though. He quotes Paul as expressing concern about their reception in America and wondering what they could give us that we didn't already have. I always thought George said that and searching gives me variations on the quote, mostly attributed to Paul but sometimes not attributed to any particular Beatle. I dunno!

Interesting! It's frustrating to read a book that contains a statement that directly contradicts another book. Whom to believe? With my recent book purchases (with Christmas money -- thanks, Dad!) I realized that I can vet ocean liner authors much more accurately than I can Beatles authors. And it's disturbing that some poorly regarded authors (in the case of ocean liners, at least) get 4-star+ ratings on Amazon. I'm much more confident shopping for books on ships than I am for the Beatles. Maybe that's why I'm more hesitant to shell out for Beatles books -- except for the Lewisohn ones, of course.

I guess the fact that there are so many Beatles books ups the odds of finding not-so-great ones. Now that I have several Mark Lewisohn books for reference I'm more focused on the books with pictures. I'm glad you've been able to treat yourself to some new books since Christmas. :)

Indeed. Not sure if there's anything in that thread on The Guitar's All Right, but it just arrived, and I learned it was written by a Beatles fan who met Mimi in 1973. Doesn't bode well but I'm trying to keep an open mind.

Actually down to my last one - 1969 Get Back/Don't Let Me Down Apple Single.

But I am also going to get the German Odeon (picture sleeve) Single: Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand & Sie Liebt Dich, since they would be the only other songs that were not released in the UK.

I've also toyed with the idea of getting the 1962 RED Love Me Do Single, since it's Ringo on drums, unlike the Allan White version on the Please Please Me LP.  icon_redface

Now that you mentioned it, I've never read a Ringo or George book.  I did see the George's "Living In A Material World" DVD, which was great, but nothing on Ringo.

I figured there was nothing to read about Ringo that I thought I already knew, but I guess I could say the same about John & Paul..... icon_redface

 ??? Are you talking about the US version, Normandie? It's the only other version I know of and it didn't appear on CD -- and it's missing 3 songs. (The third one is "Doctor Robert".) In other words, 3 Lennon songs which means that it was the only US LP with more contributions by George than by John.

By the way, my latest acquisition was the White Album and Revolver stereo on remastered vinyl, both of them played only once, and both of them only 3/4 of the original price.

I decided to buy the vinyl mono remasters of Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper's but there's no way I'm playing them until I get a better turntable. For now it's enough to just gaze at them. ;)

I guess I am talking about the US version...I have a difficult time keeping all the different types of releases straight. All I know is I bought a jewel-case CD of Revolver several years ago that had "I'm Only Sleeping," "And Your Bird Can Sing," and "Dr. Robert" on it (I'd forgotten about Dr. Robert!) on it, then I somehow misplaced it. I bought a copy after the big re-release of the Beatles catalog and got the version that was missing these three songs. (Boo.)

The copy that the independent seller on Amazon sent was missing the three songs, even though the playlist given for the items listed them, so I sent it back.

Is the more-complete version available anywhere except eBay? I haven't been able to find it in stores anywhere, and I don't have iTunes or an iPod.

Kathleen, for some reason the British Parlophone Revolver CD you want isn't being sold on Amazon.  eBay is still a good source.

If you prefer not buying it on eBay, try MusicStack:  http://www.musicstack.com/ (http://www.musicstack.com/)

That's strange. Am I missing something? Here it is on amazon (but only 1 left right now):
http://www.amazon.com/Revolver-Beatles/dp/B0025KVLTC/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1446692352&sr=1-1&keywords=beatles+revolver (http://www.amazon.com/Revolver-Beatles/dp/B0025KVLTC/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1446692352&sr=1-1&keywords=beatles+revolver)

That's the 2009 remaster and it's much better (the sound) than the 1987 CD. Both of them were available at the same time for several years after 2009, but the 1987 version is being phased out. All remasters have the British tracklists irrespective of the country in which they were actually manufactured. Therefore they all carry the Parlophone logo. The US version (with a Capitol logo and those three songs missing) was issued on CD only in 2014, with the Capitol CD box containing all the American releases, and also sold separately. Any US version CD before 2014 was a bootleg.

I found Remasters - stero CDs at very popular price (and since it is from 2009, and the vinyl is out - the price should get lower).
Didn't want the whole collection - just the albums I like the best, and that is:  With the Beatles, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, MMT, Abbey Road.
They also had 1967. - 1970. album from 1993. in almost mint condition!  8)

I got the packages and the CD's were unopened - that is, wrapped, which is great. I checked them - everything was all right. (They were sold as 'used' but they're brand new!)
But, when I re-checked what I got again, I was holding 'White Album' in my hands (which I didn't order).

I re-checked my e-mail and the receive I got - and it said that order was: 'With The Beatles'.

But I understood what has happened - somebody at the shop thought 'White Album - The Beatles' is the album 'With The Beatles' (with / white - sounds similar).

Of course, you cannot expect from everybody to be a Beatle fan and to know their albums.
Although there are obvious differences - one is white, the second is black, one is double album, another is 'regular', one is from 1968 and the second is from 1963.  glassesslip

So, I made a phone call. I decided to keep the 'White album' (I had it already on CD from 90's but without the lyrics and posters) and I explained them what has happened.
'With The Beatles' are coming to me on Monday. That'll be the day... when I - press play!  icon_cool  icon_good

Don’t forget the Capitol CD box sets from 2004-06 that have the US CDs.  These have the original US sound unlike the 2014 US CD set that just gives you the mini album covers, but with the UK recordings.

I wouldn't put it past either of them, but they both listen to music exclusively on their phones, except for my elder daughter's collection of 1D and 5SOS CDs, which she keeps in my car. (Hers doesn't have a CD player.) I've warned her, half-jokingly, that I'm going to be ticked off if I find my Revolver CD lurking in one of her cases.

NoNoNo -- sorry, Bingo Bongo, that's irrelevant and confusing. For a start, the Capitol boxes didn't contain Revolver, and it was only the Revolver problem that set Normandie searching. And if I understand her correctly, she has ordered the copy from A. already. Secondly, you're only half right about the 2014 US set. Those tracks that were unique to the US albums in terms of mixes/versions were kept, but it is true that the set in its entirety wasn't remastered from the US 2nd generation tapes that had been used for the original albums. Rather, most of the tracks were replaced with the 2009 remastered versions. So you're right in saying that the sound of the albums as a whole is not true to the originals. (Never mind the fact that those originals were not true to what the Beatles intended in the first place. For people who grew up with the American versions, however, the original sound may be essential, echo and fake stereo included, so they should stick with the earlier two boxes for the first 8 albums, up to Rubber Soul, and will have to rely on vinyl for the remaining two that were different.)

My daughter can pre-order items for her dorm room through some university-sponsored vendor (at who knows what kind of markup!). I'm just getting her some sheets (because apparently they need a special size to fit the mattresses; hmmm], but I'm going to order this piece of wall art for myself. It's a little goofy, but I thought it was cute.

Nice sign, Kathleen.  I'm happy to see you helping a new generation of college students decorating their rooms with Beatles posters.

When I was in college, I sent away for the set of Richard Avedon Beatles posters and hung those up on the wall near my bed.  I wish I saved those because I paid a whole lot more a few years ago for the same set.

Kathy, do you have a Target near you? That's where I got Kelsie's sheets when she lived in the dorm. They are much more reasonably priced. You can also get them at their website: Dorm Bedding (http://www.target.com/c/college-bedding-back-to/-/N-5v9x9)
I don't remember buying special sheets when I went to college. Of course, that was so long ago I may have forgotten! And I agree; you need that sign!

Cool posters, Barry!  :)

Kelley, I was planning on buying everything for my daughter at Target, but I got an email from the school saying that if you order bed sheets through them, they are guaranteed to fit. Apparently the mattresses are XL twins. I don't really want to get suckered in, but I do want her sheets to fit. I've noticed this same offer on other university websites <cough *scam* cough>.

They also offer everything from pop-up hampers to shower flip-flops at totally outrageous prices.

No, just the psychedelic posters.  I still have the LOOK Magazine that has the fold-out banner and the psychedelic posters.

I had this one of Bob Dylan on the wall too...


(http://www.miltonglaser.com/files/milton-16340-31.jpg)


It was 1968 and those posters were far out!  I still have the Dylan poster which came in his Greatest Hits LP.

I must've given the banner to my sister, Kelley.  I was only interested in the psychedelic posters.

Anyway, the first eBay purchase I ever made, about fifteen years ago, was the set of four on mounting boards.  They're in better shape than the ones I had on the wall.  I think I paid about 75 dollars for them.

I think you got a good deal, Barry. They seem to be going for more than that now, at least for good originals. I've always wanted those but I may have to settle for reprints. Reprint postcards maybe even!
Title: Re: What was the last Beatles Item you bought?
Post by: Hello Goodbye on June 14, 2016, 04:20:30 AM
Yes, mine are originals.  The good thing about the ones I bought is that there are no wrinkles in them.  They were shipped in a tube and sloppily rolled up.  I guess they're not worth as much as unmounted prints but they sure look better than the ones I had.

Me too! I got the album for Christmas when it first came out but I was young and didn't have the frame of reference to enjoy it that I do now. I wish I still had the album so I could compare it to this remaster. I listened to this for the first time last night and it all sounded so fresh, exciting and fun. I got it a couple of weeks ago and was waiting until I could sit down and listen to the CD. That always seems to sound better than when I put it on my phone. But I'm knee-deep in a kitchen cleaning and reorganizing project and needed something to boost my energy while I was working. That did it!

Mine was waiting for me when I went home for lunch. I got to watch most of the first feature on the bonus disc:

Words & Music (24 mins)
John, Paul, George & Ringo reflect on songwriting and the influence of music from their parents’ generation, Lennon/McCartney writing for other artists, The Beatles as individual musicians, and the band as innovators.  Also featuring Howard Goodall, Peter Asher, Simon Schama and Elvis Costello.  The interviews with Paul and Ringo are unseen.

For me too.  My office staff gets me one every year but they got me a horse calendar this year.  So I bought myself a 2017 Beatles calendar...

I bought a black tshirt with Strawberry Fields Gates from The Salvation Army. I've helped donate money to The Salvation Army to help get the famous gates at Strawberry Fields in Liverpool open to the public. You too can help by visiting www.strawberryfieldliverpool.com (http://www.strawberryfieldliverpool.com)

I bought this on eBay a few weeks ago. There’s another one on there now. It’s three times what a I paid for this and not in very good condition. I’ll be interested to see if it sells.

Wow, Barry; I love these! Thanks for rounding them all up. I will file them away in my collection. :)
I especially like that sign the boy is holding in the last one. I’m not sure if he’s being serious but my sister could have held that one in all honesty, especially where Mom was concerned!
