I hadn't burned any CDs in years but I did a trial run the other night that was successful so I'll give it a go this year.

Also didn't Derek Taylor do a book which is hard to get hold of or did I imagine that?

Are you referring to "Fifty Years Adrift"? It was a limited edition of 2000 copies published by Genesis and signed by both Derek and George Harrison.

Here are some photos of my copy:

I didn't realize your area had gotten that much snow! We still haven't gotten any yet.

I hope you keep a blanket and hand/foot warmers in the car, just in case!

Artists often create acoustic versions of their songs (compare, for instance, Jessie J's song - Price Tag studio vs. accoustic version - and it's obvious which one is better).
Some of the musicians are known for being mostly accoustic (Joan Baez for instance or early Bob Dylan).

The Fab Four made some beautiful accoustic tracks and ballads.
This is suggested track list which consists of 30 songs, more or less in a chronological order.
It's my personal choice - so, some songs are surely missing - and someone else would surely make a different listing.
Some songs are not strictly accoustic - but they start like that (Piggies), so they are included.
I think it is a fine compilation:

And I Love Her
I'll Follow The Sun
'Till There Was You
Yes It Is
Words of Love
Norwegian Wood
For No One
Here, There And Everywhere
She's Leaving Home
Your Mother Should Know
Fool on the Hill
Rocky Racoon
I Will
Mother's Nature Son
Honey Pie
Two of Us
Let It Be
The Long and Winding Road
I Me Mine
WMGGW (Anthology)
Across The Universe (Anthology) or 'Let It Be' version
Got To Get You Into My Life (Anthology)
I'm Only Sleeping (Anthology, rehearsal)

Derek Taylor's book is called As Time Goes By, a slim volume of about 150 pages, first published in 1973. I read it years ago and I must confess that I don't remember anything from it! Michael Braun's Love Me Do is a first hand account of the Beatles' rise to international fame. Braun, a journalist, was part of the Beatles' entourage during the first American tour. The book appeared in 1964. The sense of wonder at what was happening is palpable and borders on disbelief, and although Braun tries to be as discreet as possible, his account is more revealing than many later books. A quick read and a historical document!

I think this is where we disagree. When they conquered Britain in 1963 all teenagers were fans, plus they conquered a lot of older people ...

Do we really disagree? When they conquered Britain, the Beatles were no longer teenagers, but their fans were. They won over older people as well, true, but that was at least partly due to their specific Britishness and does not necessarily apply elsewhere. In other parts of the world they became weapons in the hands of teenagers fighting their conservative parents. Remember all those discussions over 'the generation gap', about youth going to the dogs, of psychologists' warnings etcetera. It's even in the films: the gentleman with the bowler hat on the train (in A Hard Day's Night) who 'fought the war for the likes of you', on the one hand, and the middle-aged housewives in Help, on the other, who like them and wonder if it's proper to wave at them.

In Paris, the Beatles wonder why there was a majority of 14- or 15-year old boys in their audience. And look at the vast majority of teens in the Shea Stadium audience. But maybe you're right and any watershed that separates age groups among the Beatles' fans is more or less artificial.

Here's a link to one source about the controversy Emerick/Scott that Moogmodule and Zipp mentioned:
