Hey all, my sometimes better half has asked me what I would like for Christmas.  We usually spend something of the order of $100 or so on each other, I have bought her a nice 'Mimco' hip bag she had been looking at in the store.  So, when I am dropping hints, what should it be?

I'm thinking that the George Harrison Dark Horse boxed set could be nice, I only have "Cloud 9" just now, and it is the original, not remastered version.  I had all of these, except for "Gone Troppo", on LP once upon a long ago and quite liked them all.

However, if anyone has any other suggestions around this price range please let me know, being 'between jobs' just now I'm not likely to be able to buy something like this in one hit for some time so want to make sure there is nothing else I may have overlooked.  I currently have most of the rest of the solo CDs by all four except Paul's out of print 70s output and some of the Ringo ones 'in the middle'; I have pretty much all of Lennon including his "Anthology" box.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

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

Ah thanks - just the sort of ideas I am looking for!
I have the 'basic' book at the moment and enjoying it a lot, but it's probably detailed enough for my level of interest - though as you can see from my first idea I am a sucker for stuff in boxes :)

 

You're welcome. But that book will have photo exclusive to the edition, and that's my weakness. :-D

Maybe one of Paul's deluxe boxed editions, like McCartney or Ram or Band On The Run? Ram comes with Thrillington, I think.

Ooh - now there's some more great ideas.  I LOVE "Ram" and will check it out - offbeat stuff like "Thrillington" appeals - which is why I bought the boxed "Wedding Album" the other day and was kind of sad to have a boxed "Back To The Egg" vanish off ebay.

Thanks again for the ideas *wave*

"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!"

I want ALL of those!  

So do I! Every time I see them at Amoeba, I can't help but pick one up and look at the list of contents and :::wibble:::

That Ram set looks great - I just watched some chap on YouTube open one - I must say it is very nicely put together.

Having said that I'll probably go for the George boxed set for maximum musical mileage.  I'll keep those McCartney sets in mind for the next time a contract rolls along and folks pay me unholy amounts of money a day that I can then blow in an amazingly short period of time ... cycle repeats ...
