It certainly was a bit different then, Mairi.  Imagine what it was like being a fan back in 1964 when we didn't know what was ahead with Rubber Soul, Revolver, and so on.  Each new LP release was a quantum leap forward.  And it seemed that civilization followed with clothing, music and hair.

It was a very strange time in the late 60's early 70's.  When The Beatles broke America, it was like a new awakening.  I was just a child but it made me want to learn to play drums, then guitar, then bass and keys.  My parents bought me "Beatles Boots" one year for Christmas.  I wanted to grow my hair, but in high school we had to participate in ROTC (playing army).  But my senior year, I never cut my hair again.  By my sophomore year in college, my hair was touching my shoulders.  I wanted to be like The Beatles.  With every new year came a new Beatles album.  I couldn't wait to buy it.  I still have them all.  Sgt Peppers was released in 67 and completely knocked me out.  First time one song blended in to another.  Everyone was talking about it.   I was still a young high school student and in a band.  We played more Beatles songs than anything else.

For me I'm glad to see the next generation still enjoying The Beatles.  My kids had no choice but to love them since I played Beatles albums pretty much every day.  It is such a pleasure to find others still recognizing The Beatles for what they brought to this planet.  They changed music forever!

Welcome RZ! Like others have said it's great to get to know people who got to experience Beatlemania and all the rest firsthand.
