Yes, James1985...not quite like anticipating, say, the WHITE ALBUM in 1968 or ABBEY ROAD in '69, but it's all we have since 1970.
My first Beatles album was MEET THE BEATLES, when it came out in 1964. I was 6 years old. I just had to have it. I saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show, and asked my parents to get it. They did. I had my Mom play it and play it and play it. But, being 6, I eventually lost interest, and for years, never really got back into music...until it was too late.
My NEXT Beatles album was MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. In 1970. Yup. Too late. Beatles disbanded. But I was only getting started with them. The next batch-- all at once-- were (and these were the American vinyl releases, of course) REVOLVER, SGT. PEPPER, and THE EARLY BEATLES. I don't know why I picked those three. I just did. And played them till they were just two sides of cracks, pops, and scratches.
After that, the rest is history. Got everything. Beatles and solo. Re-bought everything for 8-track, then CD (skipped audio tape-- made my own instead of buying pre-recorded ones), then remastered CD, etc etc etc. So, I don't really feel guilty "stealing" rare tracks from YOUTUBE and putting them in my library. I think I did my share making them all kazillionaires.
Anyway, looking forward to my copy of BBC Vol II in the mail next week. Also bought the re-mastered BBC Vol I, which should come in around the same time. Hopefully, the remastered one will improve the sound quality on that first set.
