I agree about the drums, Moog. That part you mention almost makes it hard for me to say that I prefer the acoustic version better.

I heard a cute story about this song on Sirius XM yesterday. Bob, Paul and Susan Cowsill were appearing on a show, "My Favorite 45s". Their first single, "All I Really Want To Be Is Me", came out at the same time as "The Sound of Silence" and the two singles were featured in a pick the best new release contest on a radio station in their hometown of Newport, Rhode Island. They said they were so excited when they got the most votes, never taking into consideration that they had the home field advantage! They said they got dropped from their label after the song didn't chart but Simon and Garfunkel had better luck. LOL I see on a list of their singles that they went on to release a Paul Simon song, "A Most Peculiar Man" in 1967. That was right before they had their first hit "The Rain the Park & Other Things".

That's a nice story, Kelley.

The true rival of "The Sound Of Silence" was "We Can Work It Out", as both songs alternated the #1 position during January 1966.

Cor who was the guy Marshall used to talk with on here,,,Bovine or somebody?  Lol.  I cant remember if he was George's lost son or Mona Bests, or somebody like that.  It was a long, long time ago.

Wow. Your memory seems to be better than mine. I will have to check that.
And there were some relatives of drummer Norman Chapman online here.

Btw I will make you a promise Todd. There will be some time round Xmas to get All Things Must Pass microscope sorted out.

The Beatles tell Brian Epstein to f*** off, they're not changing their image. They ARE the savage young Beatles. Eppy agrees and does everything else the same. George Martin decides to take a chance. They are still lovable mop tops but in leather.
They write the same early songs. Does it change anything?  Is their path altered in any way?
I  think their clothes and hair made them different,  so no it wouldn't have had the same effect especially on young girls,they were clean and loveable,  the first boy band.
But the boys liked them as well, I bugged my mum rotten  for a Beatles jacket with round collar in 1963,  they had so much their own style, it mattered a lot imo.

Always liked this. I can take either the acoustic version or the rockified one. I do like when the drums kick in on the rock version but the electric guitar doesn't add overly much.

Those open spaces are what intimidate me the most, Kelley. I'm glad you had a safe trip. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will be clear when it comes time to bring my elder daughter home for Christmas; most of NoDak is nothing BUT open fields.

I'll cross my fingers too, Kathy!
