Hello new people, welcome aboard! :D

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I posted this introduction on the McCartney "Out There" tour fourm, but I thought I should add it to the new members' area also.

Back in May, my husband suggested that we go to the Paul McCartney concert at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN. I said, "Who?" He told me that Paul was in the Beatles. I could see that he really wanted to go, and we would be on vacation at my mom's so I wanted for him to have something fun to do while we were there (we live in Oklahoma). I was amazed. Sir Paul has gained himself a new enthusiastic fan. I'm 45 and just now discovering the joy of the Beatles and McCartney's post-Beatles career. I bought the black box collection of all the Beatles cd. I am about 3/4 the way of getting Wings and solo cds.

Welcome to the forum cbatcu.  What a great story! Good luck with your cd collecting. 

It doesn't seem possible that the Beatles will ever cease to sell records!

Hi all – a quick hello from 'down under'.

I used to own the blue LP box years ago, but my 'better half' made me sell my LPs to save space.  I have slowly been buying CDs of my favourites, but for some reason never got around to the Beatles (who were actually the ones I liked most – I had every solo LP up to around 1979 as well).

Long story short, I saw the stereo CD box at a good price the other week and bought it; and in short order a dozen or so remastered solo CDs, plus the Anthologies, One, Love, BBC and a few other odds and ends – so you may well see me across these forums as I have a listen and want to chat about the experience.

Hadn't realised how much I missed Ram, Plastic Ono Band and Band on the Run, to name just a few.

Hello and welcome trcanberra!  Nice to have a fellow Australian on board – we in the southern hemisphere are seriously outnumbered around here!

And thanks for the info – I was even listening to that song just 'Yesterday' and missed that line.

to fabfouremily: thanks. Your profile says you like libraries. Cool. I'm a librarian. I got my MLIS from the University of Southern Mississippi. I have been a university librarian in Oklahoma for 17 years now.

I'm starting to learn my way around the forum. It is so big!

^ I do really love libraries, yes. Well, to be more specific, I love the smell of libraries. That dusty smell, can't beat it :) At times when I'm in a defeated mood and I think I'll never get the grades to eventually work in the field of clinical Psychology, I dream of opening a little library that has a small coffee shop on the side that sells gorgeous cakes, too. Maybe that's what I'll end up doing one day.

Glad to hear you're finding your way around :)

I'm sure you would have books on the Beatles and at least one listening station with Beatles cds or records :-)

Good luck in your studies!

^ work in the field of clinical Psychology,

I forgot to mention that I also have an MS in Behavioral Science. I had to get a second masters to keep my job at the university. I call my Behavioral Science masters my "for me" degree. I enjoyed studying all the psych stuff. I do get to use some of what I learned to help the students in the psychology program gather materials for papers. Humm, a paper on the psychology of the Beatles or using Beatles songs for therapy, or…

^ Interesting. There are so many ''me degrees'' I'd love to do. After all, I do enjoy studying and why should it only be to have a career with it afterwards? Uni is so expensive here, though, it's simply out of the question.
