Another testimonial to this great band. I was at the wonderful wedding of two very wonderful people this weekend (Aileen who's Mrs. D's cousin and Tim). He's a right music nut is Tim, and Aileen is a music teacher. They'd hired a singer and a guitarist who had an electric/acoustic. The duo played the fantastic song 'Blackbird' as the couple walked in, and then 'Here, There, and Everywhere' as they left the church. Two perfect songs written by Macca more than forty years ago, that went down a storm with the wedding guests and really made the ceromony special.
I was given the recent remasters of the Revolver and A Hard Days Night albums for my birthday. I'm not usually one for remastering repackaging and general faffing with great albums but the people who have remastered these deserve a big fab pat on the back. These re-issues sound amazing. I think I'll get some of the other albums from this series. You can actually hear new things on them that were not apparent on the original albums. Excellent stuff!

Just teasing really Dock, whilst I'm not disputing there is extra on the remastered versions, there is also that undeniable thrill of listening to original versions, especially using headphones.
But I was being an imp, I never had Beatles albums on vinyl other than the red and blue doubles and MMT. Had all the singles though, still got em somewhere. _________________ 'I like a bit of a cavort.'
Don't talk to me about politics, fashion or man united, because you probably will be offended by my response.
There was a programme on BBC 4 last night featuring Beatles covers. It was a case of the good the bad and the really shit but these two are belters. Always loved T'Siouxsie's version of DP and the T'Tina cover is a new one on me but I like it, especially as she carried it off with a rogue haystack on her head. Check it:
No it wasnt, but I like it. Point of order, I have heard some brilliant covers of ER but none have come anywhere near to the original. Its how it starts on Revolver with a blast of voices as Taxman fades out. It were a recording revolution. It really was.
