I've listed at discogs for sale my most valuable record. Please take a look. Here is the link: http://www.discogs.com/buy/Vinyl/Beatles-Sgt-Peppers-Lonely-Hearts-Club-Band/154757414?ev=bp_titl
My copy is in great shape. Has been carefully stored. Played a handful of times upon release in a professional turntable with an expensive cartridge. Sleeve shows only light signs of shelf storage. Including original “flame” innersleeve in VG condition and insert card in MINT condition. This record is signed by all 4 members of The Beatles. Letter of authenticity is included. Here you can see some photos: http://s1277.photobucket.com/user/sakis_s/library/ Thanks for looking.

In this month's Mojo two people (one of the guys from Penn & Teller, and Beverley Martyn) chose a Bob Dylan LP as their favourite record. Nothing too strange in that until you discover that they were 'Tempest' (2012) and 'Infidels' (1983) respectively.

Now I'm all for an appreciation (not TOO BIG an appreciation) of Dylan's career, but are these choices down to respecting the guy's career rather than actually thinking that a 1983 Bob Dylan LP could actually be his best album or even the best album ever?

I've noticed in those Uncut/Mojo Specials that anyone with a long career always has classic records liberally spread across their career, almost as a justification for the magazine itself, but surely Dylan's worst LP of the 60s (which these magazines might lead you to think would be the 1st LP, Another Side or Nashville Skyline) wipes the floor with Oh Mercy or Time Out Of Mind or Infidels or Tempest?

A good album is a good album, regardless of the year and decade it was released in. I was told that Paul McCartney stopped making relevant music in the 80's. Bought Chaos and Creation In The Backyard and it has became one of my favourite albums ever, an by-the-book example of how a legend in his 60's should approach music-making. Perfectly adequate, not forced in the slightest, highly emotional. Who cares if the album didn't have much impact on the contemporary musical scene? An album doesn't have to start a revolution in order to be great.

Too many people are too obsessed with the little rules and criterias critics and magazines tried to attach to rock 'n' roll. Music ain't got no rules, that's what makes it great. It may be absurd that Paul McCartney or any other dinosaur can kick so much ass at this age, but such is reality, imperfect and unexpected. There is no book of rules saying that he should stop making music after he reached his peak. Likewise, Chaos and Creation doesn't diminish in the least his great work with The Beatles, or the rest of his solo career. It's all great music, listen and stop over-analyzing. In my opinion.

Who's going to be the first to say they liked the Beatles til Tommy Moore left?

Totally. After that they were only in it for the money...

I get the music being subjective line, but I'm sticking to the opinion that the 60s LPs win on every single level (including design and how the LPs were actually made) over the post-60s material with, I'm prepared to acknowledge, the exception of Blood On The Tracks.

In some bizarre marking system one of the 'specials' gave Oh Mercy, and its awful production, 5-stars, while Nashville Skyline was given 3-stars. Yeah, right, of course!

The anniversary of The Stones' debut is now today.

Forget the tatty glam/stadium stuff that has been set in stone for well over four decades now, THIS is The Stones; mean, lean, young and raring to go.....accept no substitute.

However, even if it is apparently available to download, I wonder how many people in Britain actually have the proper UK track-listing to play?
Not many, I'd wager. Disgraceful state of affairs.
