WAD, Hairs, those are also 2 favorites of mine, but I love the whole thing, it's an experience.

I waited a couple of years after its release to pick it up. I was playing a head game with myself, enjoying the excitement of knowing there was a great Beatle release out there I hadn't heard yet (and a double-whammy at that), just like the anticipation I had in the 60s.

If something like this had been released in the mid-60s, I think I would have been stupified with delight.

When I finally bought it, I did it up right. Poured me a couple of fingers of Ol' No. 7 on ice and put on the cans after everyone had gone to bed. "Yeahboy! Woah! Dig this, my ham radio is picking up the Fabs at the BBC!! This is just too cool!"

:oops: Erm, it really drums up those mid-60s images of the Beatles doing their thing live in their British element.

I like the photos in the booklet and the cover. It reminds me of how cool they were back then and how good it used to make me feel listening to all their early stuff. There are lots of gems on those cds. The version of Baby Its You is better than the Please Please Me one in my opinion. I also enjoy listening to them joking and laughing around with the hosts.

I used the opening "I'm Ringo and I play the drums" as part of my thesis. I was doing electrical engineering and my final year thesis topic was on speech coding and compression. I got a 4:1 compression ratio and you couldn't tell the difference.

I also used Yoko's "male, chauvinst, pig , engineer" from the start of Sisters'o'Sisters. :P :lol: :oops:

I think "I´ll be on my way" should have been released and also many others like "Soldier of love" and so on.

This album can make a dead man walking. Right from "Too much monkey bussness" until I feel fine. That´s a awesome piece of work..
