What's everyone's thoughts on the CD The Beatles Live At The BBC.
I just started playing it again after not hearing it for a while and I like it.There's plenty of cover versions on it,so Gant's probably not a fan of it,but there's also some different versions of songs such as Honey,Don't sung by John not Ringo.

The sound quality is really good, but, there's really nothing on the CD that I couldn't do without. It's another CD set that's only really for die-hard Beatles fans that can't ever get enough of their stuff. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but I'm glad to have it in my collection because of the historical value attached to those early rare recordings.  I bought it used on Amazon, not thinking it would be worth the hefty pricetag. It was worth it for the reduced price.

Thinking about it some more... maybe one of the reasons I'm not so keen on the Live at the BBC CD is because it doesn't have any of the excitement of a live Beatles performance, even though they are live recordings. On Anthology George Martin talks about how impossible it was to get a live recording from Shea Stadium, but I had the vinyl album and I liked it. You could really hear the excitement of the performance and hear the "Beatlemania". I guess that album won't be making its way onto CD though.

That ends Round 55. This time we lose "The Word" and "I'm Looking Through You".



BEATLES SONG SURVIVOR - ROUND FIFTY-SIX

As before, vote off two of the following songs, and list an alternate third choice that will only be used as a tie-breaker if needed. The three surviving songs from this round will be brought back later in the game to compete with the other rounds' survivors.

1.  "Girl" Lennon/McCartney);  (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon, with McCartney and Harrison
2.  "Tomorrow Never Knows" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon
3.  "Got To Get You Into My Life" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney
4.   "Rain"  (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon, with McCartney and Harrison
5.   "Taxman" (Harrison); Lead vocal: Harrison, with Lennon and McCartney


(When I end a round and start the next, I'll need to take the songs from the previous round down so that the next round's songs will fit on the website. Therefore the links in each round will still show up, but they won't work once that round has ended.)


You can join in the game anytime. You don't need to have been voting from the beginning to play.

We're about halfway through the 2nd run-through of the catalogue.

The songs in this round are all fantastic. It's a good time to jump in here and start playing.  ;)

Okay, this is a tough call.....

1) Got To Get You Into My Life
2) Girl

3) Rain

I think my choices have flip-flopped since the last time these songs came through. I'm really hip on "Rain" right now.  8)

Soon.  8)

Also, just a dumb question about the Past Masters albums... are they sort of like a "greatest hits" album? Any new songs on them? Doubtful since they were broken up by then right?

"Past Masters" isn't a greatest hits album. Back when the Beatles were recording, at least in England, it was considered "cheap" to put the single releases on the albums. If they did, when the fans bought the 45 and then the album, they would, in effect, be buying those songs twice. So, most of the singles weren't ever put on the albums. This made it so that if you didn't buy the 45s, you didn't have some of their biggest and greatest hits. After the band broke up, "Hey Jude" and "Rarities" were released, and on those albums were some of those 45s which weren't on any of their studio albums. (Can you imagine that "Hey Jude" was never on a studio album? Their biggest song!) With the release of the Beatles CDs, they (thankfully) put out all the studio albums in their original U.K. form and complemented the releases with "Past Masters 1" and "Past Masters 2" so that you would have all of the songs in the Beatles catalogue, all of the singles and all of their songs, on just those official releases. Later came the Anthology series, and the Live at the BBC CD, but those are "extras" and alternate versions of the already released songs.

I have been to Blackheath Club house to a posh dinner.   It is a beautiful setting.   Where are you staying? There or in the Peppers Fairmont?   I am sure you will enjoy the course and the setting.

What ... there was a time when entertainment industry moguls DIDN'T want to make fans buy the same thing twice!  :o

Those were the days!
