Apparently, Macca is touring the States from September 16th. No news of European dates so far.

New album due as well.

Yeah....I read that too on his homepage...

I hope he'll be touring Europe too. I saw him on the "Off The Ground"-tour, and it would be nice to see a show again....who knows, it may well be his last tour.... :-/

Kicking some life into this ;D They are alive today as ever I suppose. AT least to me. The opening at Live8 prompted me to dig out an old tape I had from Sgt. peppers. Must go and pick the album really.
Which brings me to this, I know there are US and UK releases of almost all albums until 1967. Quesiton is, how does one go about to get the most important stuff without buying all those dreadful US releases. And what's the deal with the mono stereo issue (not really stereo of course, just a trickery to fool people into believing they are listening to a stereo recording, clever lads..).
And, what would would be the best compilation to get (assuming I need one). I am not specifically looking for a 1 type of album, more a career overview. I am more of an album person myself, so I suppose just gradually (yeah right, if I know myself I will soon be swimming in the catalogue) purchasing the backcatalogue.
Oh yeah, the Anthology 3some. Are these interesting, or are they  just for more than casual listeners?

Oh well, for now kicking back and....Lucy in the Sky with diamonds playing in the foreground (needs to be played loud for the proper result)

I have all 3 Anthology-albums, and I think they're well worth having...

There are some really nice versions of previously released songs, aswell as some unreleased stuff, and also some Live recordings.....I especially like the live recordings on "Anthology I"....very good sound, lots of energy....(and it's recorded in Sweden... ;) ;D)

I'm glad I bought them... :)

The 'Red' and 'Blue' albums remain my favourite compilations, (though i never got them on cd!), but I'm slowly re-equipping myself with the back catalogue on cd and i think thats the only way to go really.

No....they're not "party-CD's" exactly.... :-/

A bit too patchy for that....and some songs reappear in different versions....so I guess they are albums you listen to on your own.... :) :)

But then again.....that's how I listen to most of my CD's ;D

 lol There are some fantastic versions on there though - the acoustic While My Guitar is stunning...come to think of it theres also a stripped down version of All Things Must Pass as well isn't there?

It's worth buying the whole back catalogue of Beatles albums, the UK albums were released worlwide on Cd, so even in America you get the UK versions on Cd, it's also worth getting the Past Masters Vols. 1 & 2 Cd's which contain all the singles and b-sides (and EP's) that are not on albums, also contains Bad Boy, which was originally only released in the USA. Once you have all these then you would need to add the Anthology and Live At The BBC cd's.

Thanks guys. This means my wife will be right then....I casually mentioned yesterday I might be developing an interest in the the Beatles and then she frowned, sighed and then spoke "Oh God, now were gonna have 2 shelves of Beatles cd's...". (I am the one in the back holding the guilty sign). ;D

Do we have to re-register? Why?   ???
To me you're a Captain, but to a Captain, you're no Captain!
