This is the first time that it will be digital and on CD and Reissued  on vinyl soon
The boot CD has been out for ages, and sounds decent. I agree with tkitna, I too am asking my money.

I think y'all up there should should throw ice cubes into Lake Erie and cool that water a bit.


That's what we were saying last night. A couple of days ago I heard that the lake was warmer than it was on that same date in 2014.



This was making the rounds, captioned "Abbott Road".



It missed here but unfortunately I was there!


Anyway, it's hot down here.  86 degrees right now on the second day of Fall.


It was right on, right on here too, right up until 5:00. I came home, complained about how hot it was, sat down for dinner and suddenly it was cold. A dream come true.  :)

A lovely cold front followed me home today. But the meteorologists keep talking about how warm Lake Erie is. We might be looking at some big snowstorms this winter!

No, Kelley.  Lucky George!

LOL Barry. I thought that really wasn't true after I wrote it. I was going to change it, but I wanted to take a nap before I went back to work after lunch.  ;D I'm glad I didn't because your reply is great!

When I received my copy it was raining but as soon as I pressed "play" the skies parted and the sun began to shine...  :)


I stand corrected.   ha2ha





The Lord sure does move in mysterious ways.   ;)

Andy Babiuk told that story during a presentation I went to a few years ago. It's probably in his book too. Poor George!

George's 1957 Gretsch 6128 Duo Jet is what you hear on the early Beatles recordings until early 1963 when he purchased the first of his two Gretsch 6122 Country Gentleman guitars...






You saw and heard him playing it on The Ed Sullivan Show...






Those Gretsch guitars played through his VOX AC30 amp is what gave The Beatles their distinctive sound.  The 1962 and 1963 Gretsch Country Gentleman guitars are affectionately known today as The King George Model.  I'm fortunate to own this 1963 Country Gent...

George went to buy a Fender Strat in Hamburg,  but Johnny Guitar from Rory Storm heard about the private sale and got to the seller quicker than George. A lot of animosity as result and that's why George ended up with a Gretsch because it was an American guitar that he could afford. I'm sure this story is told in the Anthology book. It's definitely George telling the story.
