Lawrence Juber on Breakfast with the Beatles doing his fingerpicking acoustic version of "I Am The Walrus." I'm not kidding. It's awesome. I wasn't planning on spending the money, but I may have to see him in concert next weekend.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Don't know why but I suddenly had an urge to listen to Janis tonight.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Paul's "Tug Of War" album.  DAMN his voice was amazing in the early 80's.  Was at it's peak in my opinion.  heart

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

While I haven't got there yet in my listening voyage I caught a couple of tracks on Wingspan from that era and was thinking the same.  I read someone suggesting that the first signs of cracks start to appear on "Press To Play", but it is also 'on my list' so I can't comment on that as yet.

I recently rediscovered "No More Lonely Nights" (1984), a song I pooh-poohed when it came out and never revisited until a week ago.  Amazing vocals, satisfying tune.  What was wrong with me...?a-hard-days-night-paul-4

You listened to it in the context of the Regards album, nothing could smell good after an album with so much stench.

I have really liked the song (and the album) since they came out - I'm definitely in a minority with the latter.

Latest listen in my saga last night was "Sgt. Pepper's" - not bad - could do well for the lads.

 

No chance. Too many wizzy effects (Mr Kite, Pepper, Lucy), too much indian preachy stuff (Within You, Without You), fluffy lyrics (When I'm 64), mushy sentiment (He's Leaving Home), idiotic animals (Good Morning) and a number at the end that is just noise in places (A Day In The Life). And what's up with that random self-indulgent garbage at the end of the LP that just won't shut unless i lift off the needle. Revolver was ok, the follow-up single in February '67 was too removed from the cheery moptops past hits to be anything special and now this! The Beatles are losing it. Mark my words, after this latest LP The Beatles are finished.

I bought "Wings Wild Life" last night. Hopefully, it will console me enough to keep me from crying or pouting on my 2 hour drive home.

Ooh - I remember hating that back when it came out but would love to get it again now - it is on my wishlist after I get all the ones that are available on CD at a sensible price :)

The Paul ones I have yet to get are: "Wild Life", "Red Rose Speedway", "Venus And Mars", "Speed of Sound" and "Back To The Egg" -> yes, the out-of print 70s stuff.  I received "London Town" last night from Russia, it may be a pirated Japanese version, but it sounds fine - it was one I liked 'back then' and I really enjoyed it again last night.

Have the Ringo CDs arrived yet?

Yes, they have. I am going to put one on for the second half of my drive.

Aside from Bip Bop (goes on too long) I find Wild Lifeto be a really good album and fail to see why it gets so much bad press. Yes it's a bit rough but considering folks moan that Paul is too polished at times.ahdn_paul_01
Great place to go Ahh Girl (is it wrong you to call you AG? (AG->GA->GAGA->Lady Gaga - its a slope laid with fairy liquid)).

Lady Gaga has kissed Paul McCartney. Perhaps calling me AG might bring me some luck.?.?

Going down that chain of thought you could call yourself Heather (she got more than a kiss)a-hard-days-night-paul-9

Or not do and let Paul know, that might give you a better chance.

mmm, thanks for pointing out the logic to a fangirl who can't unmuddle her brain enough to think straight sometimes.

^ Steel And Glass is a savage song, only listened to Walls And Bridges for the second time on John's birthday this year and that song was the one that stood out the most to me, catchy little tune
