Yea, the thing with the instrumentals is that these were the albums I knew first, me being around at the time of their release and a U.S. resident. It's nostalgic hearing them.

 :)

I was also around and also from the U.S.  I haven't listened to the instrumentals on Help! yet (A Hard Day's Night is on the way), but I think I will for that trip down memory lane.

A friend at work who is in his early 30s discovered The Beatles through Anthology and the 1987 cds asked me "what is the James Bond Intro on Help!"   ;D

Just got the new "Living in the Material World" book for my birthday, and also a book called "The Lost Beatles Photographs - The Bob Bonis Archive", which I've just had a flick through and it has some lovely photos in.
I didn't realise the Material World book was so big - it's almost Anthology-sized!

And I'll order the Bruce Spizer "Beatles For Sale" book with the Amazon voucher I got bought as well. Might be a bad move though, as I'll only want to go and spend more money on Beatles vinyl once I get it  ;D

I've always liked the Sir George Martin instrumentals on the United Artists A Hard Days Night and the Ken Thorne instrumentals on the Capitol Help!

Ken Thorne really mastered the secret agent themes so ubiquitous in the mid 1960s...

Right. Classic stuff. I like the U.K. versions, of course, but those instrumentals are fun too.

 ;)

Slightly off topic, but . . . Last week my 14-year-old daughter accidentally threw out her $300 retainer at lunch at school! I had specifically warned her about this, esp. since I did the same thing when I was 14 (but, ahem -- anyway), but luckily my own first replacement was free.

I'm still irked thinking of all the Beatles items I could have bought with $300 -- quite a few books, for example!  >:(

Oh Kathy; I feel your pain...three times over! My daughter did the same thing that yours did once and then had another appliance simply vanish into thin air. (I think she threw that one away too.) Then there's my son; he brought his home in a napkin from Arby's and left it on the the kitchen table. I didn't even know it was out of his mouth until I heard one of the dogs chewing on something behind the couch. It didn't sound like a toy because it wasn't. I sure hope you won't have to replace any more!

Thanks, Kelley! That is exactly what my daughter did -- that is, put it in a napkin, even though the orthodontist gave her two cases specifically so she would have one for school and one for home! Grrrr. Ah, well, it makes me feel better to know that I'm not the only frustrated parent (not that I'd wish a retainer-replacement fee on anyone)...!  ;)

I just hope she was extra nice to you today! Did you have a nice Mother's Day?

Yes, I did, thanks; did you? My elder daughter was quite sweet, as were my other two kids. It was nice to have a break from their near-constant bickering of late!  ;D

So, Kathy.  Was today back to the usual bickering?
