^ and ^^  OK - now I'm getting really worried.  Maybe I should buy that other one, you know, Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, so I can understand the 'sequels' better.  Wait a sec, why is there a brown paper bag on the cover??

Yeah the first. 

Erm, if i were you i wouldn't take the album out in public or you might find yourself in the cells for being in possession of adult material. And i doubt your plea of musical grounds will be accepted after they hear it.

If you get it sent in the post you might get some strange looks from the local Post Office workers (yeah like they don't scan what we get sent - hello to those looking for secret codes and messages: the blue bear is in the night garden with the second hand clock pointing at the third hand)).

I've got that super-size mug too. Got it for my Birthday last year.

 

Yeah for me it's just t-shirts, posters and books. I don't even buy CDs. The only bought album we have is 1. We also have some stuff on vinyl. But I don't have a decent cd-player in my room and I don't often sit in the livingroom AND I have a laptop. What would I need CDs for? I can download them.

You might need CDs for the fact that .mp3s sound like %$#%!  Plus laptop speakers are %^&$%^.

Not being rude, but playing the music from a decent source on a good set of speakers is a revelation in itself.

^ and ^^  Hmm - sounds ominous - it has John's name on it, I'm sure it will be great (like that Wedding Album I still haven't got around to yet) ......

It's "better" than the Wedding Album (and much better than "Two Virgins"), but I still only play my copy about once a year!

Purchase-wise, I'm like AppleScruffJr: If I can't listen to it, watch it on my TV or read it, I'm not gonna be buying it. And if it's a readable I can find at my local library I probably won't buy it either. Got better things to spend my scant resources on, mainly food and rent and drugs (like my blood pressure medication CAN'T YOU TELL?!)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I'd like Santa (or "Black Pete") to bring me a Yellow Submarine, an Admiral Halsey hat, and an Octopus's Garden for my bathtub!blue-meanie

I just got Pussy Cats in the mail - which is tangentially Beatles stuff.  Only two Wings CDs left in the mail from the 'first phase' (Wild Life and Speed of Sound), then, when the plastic recovers, we move into the seriously trivial purchases :)
