Cheers TK. Hopefully I'll be smiling like that this NFL season when the Niners suprise everyone and win it all baby! Woohoo! Lol.

Oops I hadn't scrolled to the last page!  Nice pics Todd!  Awesome!

Thanks Stevie, but you know I cant jump on your 49ers wagon.   ha2ha   Wife and I are flying to Seattle in September to catch a Seahawks game.  I've never been to Seattle before, but I've seen the Seahawks play 4 times before and they lost all of them.  Lol.

I'm with you on Van Morrison Mr.M.  He's hard to stomach for me for some reason or another.  I like the song 'Moondance' and not much else.

I agree. Although, I'm glad the final recording does not include the extra sitar, it is a nice treat hearing the different version.  The same with "Got To Get You Into My Life" with the extra Aaaaaahs & Oooohs and keyboard.  icon_good

With Anthology, we got to hear earlier takes of the song with more sitar...

I like these takes from a developmental standpoint.

The Beach Boys included a cough in Wendy the previous year...


If you listen to the LP with a good set of headphones, you can hear some background chatter.

Listen for the cough at 3:32   The background chatter is very clear in the backing track and vocals recording session...

Wow, great photos, BB! Love the Halloween costume, and that restaurant looks totally awesome (to use an 80s turn of phrase).

Thanks for sharing those.

Talking of critical praise for sixties stars who didn't seem to register so highly with the general record buying public, and returning directly to the title of this thread, here's a nice record from someone I otherwise just do not rate....

I think you may have misread my post obs.

I said that I have no doubt that Wham! vastly outsold The Smiths. I'm agreeing with you. (Don't know about the specific 50 to 1 ratio but I never said I doubted it. You could well be right!)

And yet (again I'm agreeing with you) those music critics will dismiss Wham! out of hand whilst praising Morrissey & co to the hilt.

But my point is that this was going on in the sixties too. During that entire decade Dylan, Hendrix, The Who, Cream AND The Yardbirds put together managed just two dozen UK top ten hits, none of which hit number 1. No critic then or now would regard these acts as peripheral minor players, and no critic then or since would seriously put Herman's Hermits on some elevated artistic pedestal above them, yet they topped the charts, were a significant part of "The British Invasion" and had ten top ten hits in their own right! So you see that dichotomy between record buyers and critics was happening even in those days.

I like your idea of five acts to represent the sixties. You've made a pretty shrewd stab at that - certainly in terms of impact and influence - but I'm sure there were much bigger sellers back then than Hendrix, Dylan, The Who or Floyd. Big sales don't automatically make an act representative though. I love The Kinks but I'd be just as happy to see The Hollies, The Dave Clark 5 or Manfred Mann (all of whom would compare very favourably against The Kinks or The Who in terms of sixties record sales) representing the decade, although I bet most rock journos wouldn't!
