Agree with much of this.... "longevity" is an overrated quality in rock/pop...witness the hoarse, prehistoric cadaver-driven cash-cow monster that is today's Rolling Stones... What the fabs have achieved is so much more impressive... i.e. longevity of appeal for a (relatively) brief career.

The Beatles undoubtedly split at the right moment in my opinion.

Nobody is saying that longevity in and of itself is worthy of commend. You are going for the worst case scenario, but even the Stones released some of their best stuff in the 70's, according to the majority of their fans. The Beatles split at the right moment because they couldn't function as a band anymore and smartly realized that they could never put together another album with every member's full involvement in it. It was the best decision for them. But that doesn't mean that a band/artist can't release great albums over multiple decades. It also doesn't mean that those bands/artists are not worthy of admiration for doing so. Scott Walker released 'Tilt', the album that is now widely considered his best and most original 28 years later after his (also acclaimed) debut.

That is a fantastic album and I'm not sure I would have known that if I didn't belong here. That's one of the best things about this group; discovering new music.

Probably you would have known it sooner or later because it's a critically acclaimed album; but I agree that this is a good place to discover new music.

Funny how I think it's just amazing and other people find it quite the opposite!  :o 

It's all good, I'll just go in the corner and cry a little bit and pretend I didn't read this!!! ;D

I just saw a Spirograph on eBay, vintage 1968. That brings back a lot of memories!

Just found this clip of my daughters' marching band from last year. They are not nearly as polished as the band in the clip Barry posted (not even close), but thought I'd share it anyway. After 30 seconds, they actually DO start marching.  ;)


They look sharp Kathy! I love their uniforms.

they completely ruined it by printing reviewers quotes all over the front

I think that would have been better on the back.
