If I had the space and the money to spare, I'd love to get all those American albums in vinyl. I'd never play them. But, I'd love to have them, just to look at them, reminisce, read the liner notes, etc. These were the albums that introduced many of us to the Beatles. I can still hear the song sequences in my head. I'll hear "What Goes On" and then my mind will go right to "Day Tripper." Only someone who had played YESTERDAY AND TODAY over and over again would understand that.
Same with BEATLES VI. I'll hear "Tell Me What You See" then immediately think of "Every Little Thing," which was the next (and final) song on the album. In fact, every time I hear EITHER song, I think of the other one!
The British albums were the ones to have. They were the way the Beatles intended them to come out. They sounded better.
But, in America, we had what we had. And we fell in love with it. So, strictly for nostalgia's sake, I'd love to be able to put them on a shelf somewhere.
in years to come/they may discover/what the air we breathe and the life we lead are all about/but it won't be soon enough for me
