I had (and have) this one. When I got it, it thought it was very much an addition to what I already had. It was merely a collection of b-sides from singles and songs from EP's (Long Tall Sally) that had not appeared on a European album. In these days of an overwhelming offer on the internet, it does seem lame, but it once wasn't.

Cool little story about The Inner Light I just recalled.

Back in the late 70's, remember the album 'Rarities'? That was the first time I had heard TIL. I liked it.

I was at school and we were reading the novel of 2001:A Space Odyssey at the time.

I always felt the dreamy verses would've made good background music to watching the 2001 movie. I could picture this space ship moving through the galaxy while TIL played.

While I'm here - lol - it's cool to try and watch The Lord of the Rings films (or certain scenes from them) while playing specific Led Zep songs.  For example...play The Song Remains The Same while the Black Riders are pursuing Arwen and Frodo in the first film.  A lot of Zep songs have LOTR references anyway so it all kind of fits.  Lol

I remember those rarities albums. I got both the US and Australian versions. Pretty lame in retrospect. I can't recall which album it was on but one was I am the Walrus where the major difference seemed to be an extra half bar on the intro. When you compare what was on these records with what came out on Anthology they seem pretty half assed.

Yeah! Post-post Beatles for Pete. Do you think they'd have kept him if he would have just broken down and got Beatles hair when the rest of them did? LOL

I don't think the hair was ever a major problem.

I do think The fabs were an exception though Kevin in that I really dont think there will ever be a band as big or phenomenal again, I could be wrong of course but when you look at old footage of places like Adelaide where the 8 mile drive from the airport was lined with people (not just kids) and hundreds of thousands were in City square to see them on a balcony, it was just freaky, I cant imagine anybody else being so worshipped ever again, surely it was an exceptional phenomenon ?

I agree. As a phenomenon Beatlemania era Beatles were unsurpassed.

Do you not think popular music follows a pattern:
-   Charts go soft and soggy (at least in retrospect)
-   Appropriately motivated teenagers, keen for their own sound, meanwhile help create the Next Big Thing in clubs, dance halls and (now) the internet.
-   Break through act explodes into public consciousness. For a year, maybe two, the charts again are exciting and new.
-   Eventually charts go soft and soggy (at least in retrospect)
-   Appropriately motivated…..
-   
The Next Big Thing will more than likey have nothing to do with old codgers like you and me or The Now Version Of 8 Year Old You. It’s probably growing somewhere right now. We’ll see it on the telly and be as surprised as you were in 1963 by it all. The kidz who went to the clubs or dodgy websites won’t be. And loads of teenagers who didn’t keep an eye out will be surprised too, along with their parents and 8 year old little brothers.

And so on it goes. It’s the means by which popular music reinvents itself, appearing to evolve. It’s happened again and again, and in this context The Beatles are neither unique or unexpected. They, or someone like them, were bound to happen. Rock DNA dictates it.

Yes I am in agreement with you on the above, in fact Ive gone soft and soggy as well as the charts  ;D
