What's that b-side mentioned on the single for A Hard Day's Night? Waitin' For You?


Must be a mis-print on the album sleeve. "Waiting For You" was a B-side by another Parlophone band, The Fourmost.
The correct b-side of Hard Days Night in Denmark was "Things We Said Today".

The original Hottest Hits album from Denmark is very rare as it was withdrawn soon after going on sale because the Beatles hadn't agreed to its release. There are, however, many modern reproductions of this album. The photo shows a repro because the original had a "flipback" sleeve, with the front cover folded over the back cover around the three closed edges. LIke this ....



It's a great album to own though, even if it isn't the original Danish release. I love the collection of singles and EP songs that they have used. And the cover photo of the band is fantastic!
Interesting to see that the reproduction has copied the same mis-print that was on the original release!

I got Red Rose Speedway for myself the other day, first record I've bought for myself, hoping to collect all the Beatles ones soon.

Well, I bought the album "1" for 1.5 €, so I will listen to it - I'll skip
first ten songs and start enjoying Yesterday, We Can Work It Out and so on.

Just went to a vintage fair and bought five LPs for £10!  Pretty good huh?  I got 'Jazz' and 'Hot Space' by Queen, a Motown compilation, a Chuck Berry record, and Bill Haley's 'Rock Around The Clock', all originals too.   ;D

I'm sure I will!  I also went vinyl shopping again (oh dear, poor bank balance!) and got a couple of Queen originals for £5 each, and a Bing Crosby record for a whole £1!  I've fallen in love with Bing Crosby recently.  'Moonlight Becomes You' gives me shivers of the best kind.  I just love vinyl in general.  I mean this digital age where everything's in one little box is certainly convenient, but not exactly enjoyable...  not to me anyway.  I miss the days when I'd save up my money all week and then go down to the nearest music shop at the weekend and buy just one album, and every time, it would be magical - looking at the artwork, opening it up and scouring it until you knew every little detail, reading what the band had to say...  I miss that   :-[

Nah...you just know what's good. I agree with you about Bing. I remember watching his TV specials with my parents when I was a kid. I think he passed away when I was about 12 or 13.

I wasn't even alive when Bing passed away, I wasn't born till '89.  My whole family, friends and uni tutors all constantly tell my I should have been born in the 30's or 40's, though.   :P

Good for you on appreciating some really good music. There are a couple of "kids" out there that enjoy some good music, but many just don't get it.

I have got to the age when I am starting to be... "Back in my day", and I am only 45.

From the Beatles, I only have Rubber Soul on vinyl, made in Australia. It sounds quite good. I also have several vinyls that my father bought, my favourite being Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits, but sadly he didn't listen to the Beatles.

Although I still own all of The Beatles UK LP/single/EP releases (and most American imports) on vinyl, and all the solo/post Beatles albums (plus a few singles) I no longer have the means to play them. In fact some have never been played, I bought them long after I had parted with my record deck (yes, I know....). They are currently filed away in protective dustsleeves at the back of a cupboard in chronological release order, much to my wife's bemusement. Once in a blue moon I fish out the Let It Be box just to leaf through the book, which is still in immaculate condition.

I was always useless with record players anyway. I never did understand how people played records "backwards" without breaking the machine. My turntable went in one direction at a choice of three speeds, 33 & 1/3, 45 or 78 rpm. I recall my mum having an old Connie Francis LP which was really heavy and the vinyl seemed way thicker than any of the other records.

I used to take off the belt on my belt-drive turntable and manually turn the record on the platter backward with my forefinger on the label portion of the record as close to 33 and 1/3 as I could.   ;D  Once you got it going, inertia would help keep the speed steady.

No harm done to the turntable, but who knows what was happening to the stylus and records.

Some of today's direct-drive turntables such as the Audio Technica AT-PL120 have built-in reverse capability and styli designed for forward and reverse play.
